The Westside Community School District, also known as District 66, formed decades ago with the merger of three separate area school districts. Once situated on Omaha’s western edge, the district was named to reflect its location.
Westside High School Omaha

The school district boasts the state’s very first special education program, for which it has been nationally recognized. Westside Community Schools was also the state’s first district to offer full-day kindergarten and pre-school in its elementary schools. Westside Community Schools offers a distinguished early childhood education program and has been awarded with several Blue Ribbon School designations, as well as noted for its technology, designated as having several Apple Distinguished Schools within its boundaries. One of the state’s larger school districts, Westside is made up of 10 neighborhood elementary schools, one middle school and one high school.
