"Westgate Community School is a small school of innovation that seeks to serve gifted students who would benefit from a creative, collaborative and less traditional educational environment."
We feel this updated mission statement more accurately describes the educational environment at Westgate Community School.
There is a lot to love about Westgate, and we invite you to consider what the school means to your family. Your donations are crucial to the Annual Campaign because as a charter, your child's school does not receive the same funding as other schools in the district.
No amount is too small, or too large; our goal is to reach $30,000. Your contribution of even $5 will make a difference, and you are encouraged to participate at whatever level you are able. The Annual Campaign runs from November 28th through January 31.

As Westgate grows, the process of Carline that once worked is no longer serving our community.
After careful consideration, we are making some changes to the “Big Kid” 5-12 Carline. This has been the place where there are the biggest concerns surrounding accidents and injury to kids walking between cars and to staff monitoring Carline.
Starting Wednesday, August 17, there will be NO PARKING IN THE UPPER LOT during Carline. The 5-12 Carline will now work much like the K-4 line. All students will walk to the median to wait to be picked up by their families. There will be one line of traffic for K-4 and on line of traffic for 5-12. Please take turns merging at the end of the lines.
If you want to park and pick up your child/ren, please use the lower lot. We understand that spots are limited, so we encourage everyone to use the Carline system. This will be the fastest way to get your children.
If you park and walk up to get your children, you will need to pick them up at their designated class/grade area. All students will be crossing over to the lot and must be picked up there. No children will be allowed to be pulled out as they walk with their class to the designated area. (Thank you K-4 parents. This has been working great this year!)
