In addition to West, the district serves the towns of Leroy and Ross in northern McLennan County. A small portion of Hill County lies within the district.

History[edit]

In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[1]

On April 17, 2013, an explosion at the West Fertilizer Plant leveled several blocks of West and caused fires to spread across several blocks, including West Middle School.[2] All five schools were shut down for the remaining week.[3]
