Westside Christian School is a high-quality, accredited, Christian school for children from Pre-K3 through grade 8. We look forward to partnering with parents as we focus on the academic, spiritual, social, and emotional needs of all students that we serve. Our school is mission oriented, offering enrollment to the community without regard to church membership. In fact, over half of the students at Westside come from families all around Dane county.
As part of a larger school community, with an elementary and middle school onsite, we excel in areas important to a quality learning environment, such as: building community among students and families, focused instruction and individualized support, school safety, and instilling Christian values. We incorporate small and large group activities, have 1:1 Chromebooks in all classes 3-8th grade, and support the development of a child’s social-emotional and physical learning. We offer a robust music elective program and organized team sports.
However, we also believe that part of what makes us unique is our focus on guiding your child spiritually. We know raising children to keep Christ at the center of their lives is likely one of the main reasons you made the choice to explore Westside Christian School. Having that foundation at a young age will help our children mature in their faith, learn how to live with Godly character, and develop the skills and abilities necessary for the future. As we hear in Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” We are here to support you as parents and pray for your family. As we guide your children in their education, that also includes strengthening their understanding of God’s Word from preschool through grade 8.
A child’s teacher is such an influential person in his or her school experiences. We as a staff acknowledge that you are trusting us with the most precious people in your lives. Our teachers model and foster Christian values like honesty, gratitude, forgiveness, giving, and acts of service. Our teachers are highly qualified, with degrees in the field of Education and are committed to continuing their training by attending conferences, professional development workshops, and/or pursuing Masters degrees. We as a school are committed to Christian education and the growth of all students that we are blessed to serve.
Our Preschool (Pre-K3 and 4K) is a play-based, child-friendly environment with flexible schedules through a combination of half day and full day options. We have extended school care available starting at 7:00 AM as well as after school until 5:30 PM to support busy families.
We look forward to the opportunity to give your child a joyful foundation of learning and discovery. We hope you will join our WCS family soon! If you are interested in learning more, schedule a tour today.
