    “West Side knows how to prepare children for high school and beyond! We have one child in college, one child in high school, and one currently at West Side. Our two oldest were very well-prepared for high school. The Christ-centered education is quite evident. The teaching staff can't be beat! What a blessing West Side has been to our family.”

    “West Side Christian School is a great home for our boys! Amazing focus on education, the Lord, and a welcoming family. My parents and my wife and I did not attend WSCS, but they welcomed our boys with open arms as well as us. We have been truly blessed as an entire family by the teachers and staff and believe WSCS to be a true extension of the home.”

    “The staff is amazing and cares for each student and their families on both a professional and personal level. I'm a former West Side graduate and feel truly blessed to be able to send both of my own children there now. Some of my best friendships began at West Side and have remained solid for nearly three decades. I also received an outstanding education that prepared me for success in both high school and college. The West Side community is a true family where God's love and grace is evident in every aspect.”

    “We couldn't be happier with West Side Christian School. The attention our son receives, whether it is from his teacher, principal, staff members, is what we appreciate most.  They all call on him by his name, he's not just another student or number. He has made very close friends here and so has his parents.  We feel that it’s truly a Christ-centered community providing not only an education but the life skills needed to be a compassionate, productive, and contributing member of society.”
