About Our School
The mission of West Side High School is to prepare all of our students for college, career, and citizenship. We will provide a safe, clean, positive, and supportive learning environment in which all students can successfully develop socially, emotionally, and academically. We want children to be in positions to lead lives of enduring quality and accomplishment.
We regard development of both intellect (academic proficiency) and strength of character as a prime means to that end.

I believe that I deserve to be respected and valued by others
For the things that make me unique and special
I believe that my voice echoes the hopes, concern and worries of those who choose not to speak
I believe that I am blessed with tremendous potential to change the world
And I won’t let anyone tell me otherwiseI am a Rough Rider
I am strong
I am invincible
I persevere in the face of hardship
I was born of greatness and to greatness I will return
I am a Rough Rider
I fight injustice where I find it
I stand up for what’s right
I treat every challenge as an opportunity to prove that I’m great
I am the change
I am the future
I was born to lead
I’m a Rough Rider.
