Westside’s Faculty

Dedicated & Passionate Teachers

Westside’s Faculty are the heart and soul of the school.

They are a group of dedicated and passionate teachers who care deeply about their students’ success.

To be a teacher is a vocation - not simply a job. Westside’s teachers go the extra mile to make sure classes are engaging and every student is given the attention they need to thrive.

We take great care in the selection of our faculty, and we support them as they strive for continuous improvement.
