There is a strong correlation between parent involvement and student performance in school.

One key to staying involved is staying informed with what is happening at school.  The PTSA is your connection to everything Westside!  We are committed to creating an environment where parents, faculty, staff, and community members come together to discuss educational issues and share information.  As voting members of an organized group, our decisions and recommendations will strongly influence our school.  Your West Seattle High PTSA is an advocate for all WSHS students, including YOUR student.
