Serving over 9,000 students spread across over 346 square miles, Westside Union School District prides itself on being “The District of Choice” with more choice-based programs than any other district in the Antelope Valley. The District operates 13 schools, providing world-class education to students from kindergarten to 8th grade. Continuing a tradition of high academic achievement, Westside has seven schools that have earned California Distinguished School, CSBA Golden Bell or Gold Ribbon School status. Importantly, all WUSD schools are also accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
The District proudly serves the communities of Antelope Acres, Anaverde, Leona Valley, Quartz Hill, West Lancaster and West Palmdale. A caring, supportive and motivating learning environment is evident throughout all of the schools. Our primary goal is to ensure each student’s academic success by carefully assessing their individual needs. All Westside schools maintain a positive school climate that promotes student progress. Westside is proud of the active parental participation that the schools receive through the PTAs, School Site Councils, School Advisory Councils, parent volunteer programs and the West Antelope Valley Educational Trust Foundation (WAVE).
