About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Westside High School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Westside High School had 16 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Washington average is 19 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Westside High School Reviews
Don't Judge a Book by its Cover
This review is biased as it is based entirely on test scores and not what this school provides for students throughout our valley and beyond who need a personalized educational pathway. WestSide High School is a safe place for those students who have not found success through the traditional pathways offered in public education. We serve those students who struggle with content, social cliches, bullying, medical conditionals, and much much more. We may not have the highest test scores in the state and our students may not all graduate on time, but we build quality relationships that last a lifetime and our students have more pride in their school than I have witnessed anywhere else. Thank you for taking the time to research about WestSide and we look forward to entertaining any inquiries or questions you might have.
