—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 6, 2004

Westside has improved in many ways these past two years. We have a principal who strives for nothing but the best from her teachers and students. As a parent from this school, Westside has improved it's TCAP scores as well a we were taken off the target list. We have worked and strived to give our best to get the best from our children.
