Student life[edit]

Modular schedule system[edit]

Westside has used a modular schedule since 1967. Each module, or mod (as known colloquially among WHS students), is either a 20 or 40-minute period used for classes or independent study time. This allows freedom in scheduling as classes can be 40, 60, or 80-minutes long as needed for one to one, small group, large group, and laboratory instruction. An average student has at least one or two full open mods per day to be used for studying, interacting with teachers, eating lunch, or socializing. Juniors and seniors who have met specific requirements are eligible to apply for a pass that allows them to leave the building during open mods.[3]
