In the mid-1940s several Omaha school districts banded together to form a new school district with a mission – “to meet the unique needs of all learners”. The mission was achieved with the formation of District 66, formally known as Westside Community Schools. Since then, District 66 has grown considerably; and has been recognized as one of the most exceptional public-school districts nationwide. This innovative Nebraska school district is known for many firsts when it comes to education; including, being the state’s first school district to offer a special education program, and the first district to add full-day Kindergarten and preschool programs within elementary schools.
Along with a phenomenal school district, Westside/District 66 is home to one of the most upscaleOmaha communities. Located in the heart the city (between Dodge and Pacific streets, bounded by 90th Street to the west and 72nd Street to the east), Westside has more than 40 neighborhoods featuring beautifully landscaped, well-maintained homes. From sprawling luxury residences to cozy bungalows, District 66 homes have large, tree-lined lots with eye-catching curb appeal.This coveted neighborhood has an eclectic mix of homes all tucked within its boundaries.
While Westside is made up of a wide range of residents (couples, first-time homeowners, retirees), many homeowners are families with preschool to high school-aged children. These residents have chosen District 66, primarily for the area’s schools, often located within walking distance of their homes.
The Westside Community School District consists of 14 schools with 10 elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, and a focus school and career center offering studentsspecialized educational services. More than 6,000 students attend District 66 schools, known nationally for its innovative programs, highly effective curriculum, and outstanding instructors.
As one of the most coveted Omaha neighborhoods, Westside is conveniently located to many local amenities, including several country clubs, popular city parks, and Swanson Library. Additionally, with the proximity of the interstate system and other main Omaha thoroughfares, popular shopping areas and restaurants are only a short drive away.
Although Westside has grown and changed over the years, one aspect that has never changed is the sense of community one will find in District 66. Many of the residents are involved within the schools’ highly active parent organizations; plus, numerous Westside students are second- and third-generation pupils. With its small-town, close-knit feel, there are an abundance of reasons this Omaha neighborhood community has remained a popular draw for residents of all ages throughout the years.
