Unified Acheivements

Congrats to our 18-21 Transition program on being the 2022 Unified Omaha Metro Bowling champs!

Thanks to WMS for sponsoring the May - Summer Block Party Unified event!

Thanks to all who were able to join for the Unified Summer Block Party at Westside Middle School and to the staff that helped to put this together. Ice cream, sidewalk chalk, window painting, kites, bubbles, and basketball rounded out a fun event for students and families.

Safety and Public Health Practices

Students in grades Pre-K through 6th are required to have an adult accompany them. Students in grades 7-12 and transition are asked to carefully consider the independence of their student and have an adult accompany if support for their individual success is needed.

What Are Unified Activities?

The Special Olympics Unified Schools Program is a fast-growing initiative that brings students with and without intellectual disabilities together.


As Unified Champion Schools, we partner with Special Olympics Nebraska to implement a three-component strategy focused on Inclusive Sports, Inclusive Youth Leadership, and Whole-School Engagement. These three components bring students with and without intellectual disabilities together to promote a positive school climate, develop physical fitness, prevent bullying, enhance student engagement, and promote student leadership skills.
