A Tradition of Excellence
Welcome to Westside Community Schools, located in the heart of Omaha Nebraska. Westside is a nationally-acclaimed public school district - one of the very best in the United States. Our superior staff, administration and Board of Education are committed to excellence in education for all students. Westside Community Schools provides high academic and behavioral expectations in a caring, friendly environment. We are proud of our strong record of success.
Our Vision

We relentlessly pursue innovative educational paradigms and promise to personalize learning for every student. We invite the challenge of developing a community of learners who embrace a broader, richer definition of success.

Open Enrollment Begins November 1st
Open enrollment for the 2015-16 school year begins November 1, 2014 and ends March 15, 2015.  Applications will be available on the District website beginning November 1st.  Contact Julie Thacker at 402-390-2107 after Nov. 1 with any questions. 
Westside 2013-14 NeSA Scores
The 2013/2014 Reading, Math, and Science (Nebraska State Accountability) NeSA test results for Westside Community Schools are now available.
 
The NeSA tests are one-time, drop-in checks of student performance on state standards. It is important to note that not all of the state standards are tested on the NeSA exams and that no single test score can tell the full story performance of an individual student, school building, or district. The child’s teacher will continue to be the best source of information on how well an individual child is learning.
