Westridge Elementary, located on Grandview Hill in Provo, is a school where children are treasured. They come to learn, succeed, grow and become the best they can be!
Westridge opened its doors in 1980 as the first year-round school in Utah. Although no longer year-round, the school has continued a tradition of innovation and academic excellence in a nurturing and caring environment. We have a superb staff who work diligently to make Westridge an ideal environment for learning and growth! We welcome all students, parents, visitors, and volunteers!
