About Us

Exterior of school building
Westside Global Awareness Magnet SPAN school (K- 8) is a small, family-friendly campus, nestled between the Venice Beach shoreline and the Ballona Creek wetlands. Our highly trained teachers collaborate to create hands-on and project-based learning experiences in core math and English classes which are further supported in our Global Awareness science and engineering-based electives. Westside students utilize the surrounding environments of ocean and wetland to enhance their academic explorations in all classes, including physical education.
