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 in Omaha, Nebraska

The school district boasts the state’s 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 preschool in its elementary schools.

It offers a distinguished early childhood education program and has been awarded several Blue Ribbon School designations. The district is also known for its technology, with several elementary schools recognized as Apple Distinguished Schools.

One of the state’s larger school districts, Westside Community Schools, is made up of 10 elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school.
