  • The Westside Pool is temporarily closed due to the Westside Impacting Excellence Campaign.


    Westside Community Schools has long been known as a lighthouse district by leading educational programming throughout the Metro, the State of Nebraska, and the Midwest. Our culture of innovation and dedication to improving the lives of all students and families in our district drives everything we do. The Impacting Excellence Campaign is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for district families and alumni to contribute to Westside in a way that will ensure the district’s sustained excellence for years to come. This campaign will be the most significant private funding effort in the district’s history. The Westside Life Complex will provide students with cutting-edge technology and unique experiences that will supplement their education and prepare them for life beyond Westside High School.


    The Impacting Excellence Campaign will bring a plethora of new and exciting additions and renovations to Westside High School with the creation of the Westside Life Complex. This space will deliver world-class educational opportunities to meet the needs of our diverse student body, including a beautiful new state-of-the-art natatorium that will:

    • Provide the pre-eminent swimming and diving facility for a high school in the United States by partnering with Myrtha Pools

    • Replace the existing, maintenance-intensive, out-of-date swimming facility, reducing maintenance costs and ongoing equipment failures

    • Have an adequately designed HVAC system specific for natatoriums

    • Have concourse viewing level with restrooms, concessions and classroom/meeting spaces

    • Have the ability to provide instructional opportunities for swimming for all students within Westside Community Schools through physical education classes, competitive swimming and diving, and learn-to-swim programs.

    Stay tuned for more information. We look forward to the future here in the Westside Community, and we hope to be in our new home by October 31st of 2025.

    Thanks and RollSide!
