Westside – District 66. Our Mission as an innovative educational system, is to ensure academic excellence and to serve the unique needs of all learners. The District is a keystone of our community. Therefore has an obligation to be a major resource for enhancing the quality of life for all its citizens.
in 1946, residents living on the western edge of Omaha sought a way to maintain quality education in their rural schools. The Boards of Education of Districts 19, 31, 46 and 65 met to decide whether combining resources would better address individual differences in children. After a careful study, a committee proposed a merger of the four districts into one. The suggested that the districts use existing school facilities for students K through 6. The committee suggested that a new high school be designed and built with the specific development and academic needs of students in mind.
A series of joint meetings culminated in the merger of districts 31, 46 and 65 to form District 66 in March 1947 (District 19 chose not to join). The first three schools in the new District were Oakdale, Underwood Hills and Loveland.
The junior-senior high school opened its doors in 1952. The school was built on farmland near 87th and Pacific Street. The current high school still sits on that site today. District 66 named the school Westside after West Side Story, a popular musical at the time. The new name also served to unify the three former districts when District 66 became known as the Westside Community Schools.
