Western Hills Elementary School Home

Our Story

Western Hills Elementary School opened in the Fall of 1968 on land donated by William C. Childers, T. C. Whitley, and representatives of the Sparta estate. Constructed in the lush Western Hills development, this neighborhood school provided a safe and caring environment for the children of families attracted to the thriving new community. A quality staff and superior parent involvement helped facilitate the school district’s first centralized library at the school in 1973. The successful effort motivated other schools across the district to raise funds for their own libraries. Kindergarten was added to the school in 1975.
 
Over the years, the school has grown from a small one-wing facility with six grades and six classrooms to an expansive campus with over twenty-five classrooms, a computer lab and an on-site gymnasium serving the needs of over 440 children each day. The school has twice earned an “Exemplary” rating from the Texas Education Agency and maintained a “Recognized” rating consistently from 2006-2010.
 
As the needs of our students and families continue to change, Western Hills Elementary is committed to providing the type of high-quality environment where every child gets a chance to shine. Rigorous, engaging instruction, state-of-the-art technology set within a culture of high expectations will compel our students to be creative, confident, and ready to bridge the values of the past to a vision for the future.
