Community is the heart of District 66. Ten neighborhood elementary schools, one middle school and one high school serve more than 6,000 learners, many of them second- and third-generation Westside students. Westside also has a large number of option enrollment students (students who live outside district boundaries). Parents of those students are drawn to the district by its reputation for excellence and innovation as well as by its small-town, close-knit feel. The District has highly active parent organizations at every school and benefits from the support and involvement of the Westside Foundation and Westside Alumni Association.
