Parent Tour and Observation Days
From January 17th-19th we will be hosting classroom observations for interested parents for the Kindergarten class of 2023-24. An evening meeting will be held on January 19th for parents as well. Please sign up HERE! We look forward to meeting you and to showing off West Side’s excellent educational experience!


The Basics

West Side maintains one classroom per grade level, offering unique enrichment programs and a warm and supportive environment for learning.  Kindergarteners must turn five by September 1st.  For the 2022-23 school year, Transitional Kindergarten is open to in-district residents turning five between September 2 and February 2.  As we move towards California's universal TK in the 2023-24 school year, TK will be open to in-district residents turning five between September 2 and April 2.  TKers are served within the Kindergarten class.  


Information about Enrollment

In-district students have priority in registration.  Over two thirds of West Side students come from outside the district.  Families should start the process of applying for enrollment in Kindergarten - Sixth Grade by submitting an inter-district transfer form through their district of residence.  A lottery is held at the February Board Meeting for out-of-district residents to fill the available openings in Kindergarten.  Most of our students continue through Sixth Grade but occasionally there are openings in First - Sixth grades so please contact us if you're interested.
