Constellation Schools: Westside Community School of the Arts Wolverines

Serving students and families for twenty years, Constellation Schools provides a high-quality education that integrates the teaching of character education, values and self-discipline, incorporates technology (providing personal laptops in grades 2-12), stresses the importance of school attendance and addresses the emotional needs of each student. While our highly qualified teachers focus on specific educational needs, getting to know the whole child is a responsibility every employee takes seriously. It is a privilege to serve our families, and we welcome the opportunity to become partners in the education of your child!

Constellation Schools: Westside Community School of the Arts (WCSA) opened in 2007 with 75 students in grades K-3. As our first school focusing on The Arts, Constellation Schools: Westside Community School of the Arts has grown to over 380 students in grades K-8.

Partners with our Parents

"WCSA has been a blessing to all who attend here because the kids have the opportunity to learn dance, join the choir, play a school provided instrument, and participate in art where they can have their accomplishments displayed in an art show. I also love how the school is gradually growing with various clubs that the kids can be involved in along with perfectly matched instructors for each of these groups. Attending this school has been the best decision we have ever made!!"
