  • My son attended Westside for 3 years and despite all the bad things I'd heard about middle school in general, we were EXTREMELY happy with Westside. Dr. Welch is an excellent principal -- he is very friendly, enthusiastic, and loves the students. He high-fives them in the hallway and knows them all by name! The teachers were awesome as well. We were very happy with Westside.

  • If at all possible you should move out of the Westside School District. The principal is a racist man, he thinks he is above everyone. The assistant isn't much better, they both be-little the kids and scare them. I had to take my daughter out early on several occasions because Welch has scared her to the point she has broken out in hives. It is a very HOSTILE environment, I am looking to get out of the school district as soon as possible.
