    WSMS has a nice environment and there are no cliques. Everybody is friends with each other and there are rarely any fights. I am proud to say that I'm a student there.

    My child started going to Westside last year and loves it! The focus on the arts is wonderful and provides the children a well-balanced education in an environment that is full of creativity.

    My daughter has been a student at West Side for 3 years. The fine arts emphasis in the regular education classes as well as the arts classes has been such a positive aspect for her educational experience. We are very fortunate to have a school like WSMS here in LaGrange.
