Mission & Goals

The mission of Westside Global Awareness K-8 Magnet School is to allow students to develop and demonstrate global competency and acquire the knowledge needed to interact productively and respectfully with people from diverse areas. Westside teaches global awareness through small-group interactions, peer coaching, and structured activities. Students learn to be critical thinkers, studying world issues from an environmental perspective; reflecting on cultural diversity, economics, politics, and real life issues. With competence in global awareness, students develop conflict resolution skills, self-esteem, and collaborative decision-making abilities.
