For over 40 years, Westside Chinese School has been a parent volunteer-run organization, and remains so today. From administration and academics to traffic and safety to food service to our cultural events and carnivals, our school can only exist with help from our families. Every enrolled family is required to provide at least 20 hours of volunteer service for the school in various capacities to help run our school and build our amazing cultural community.
