West Side Collaborative challenges students to develop into inquisitive, thoughtful individuals with a sense of responsibility to themselves and their community. We recognize and nurture multiple intelligences and design instructional approaches to build every student's understanding. Through a project-based curriculum that integrates technology, humanities, the arts and sciences, students learn to become independent thinkers, make meaningful choices and value growth through exploration and reflection. Teams of teachers on each grade work collaboratively to create opportunities for individualized and small group instruction. Together they design curriculum that enables students to use knowledge in new ways. Our goal is that each student develop the skills necessary to meet and exceed the standards.
