The Foundation provides teacher recognition through classroom grants and district-wide grants, facilities improvement, student scholarships, and other support where tax dollars are not available. Supporters and donors include alumni, district residents, businesses, teachers, staff, parents, and friends who share a belief that a strong public education is essential to the quality of life and future well-being of our community.

The Westside Foundation provides the support needed for our teachers and staff to personalize their approach to teaching. We proudly partner with our generous community to ensure that all WCS students have access to academic excellence and personalized learning to meet the unique needs of all learners.
