Weclome Back from Principal Glenn
The summer break has whisked past at lightning-fast speed! We will begin classes again on Tuesday, August 9, 2022. Our school hours are 8:30 AM to 2:45 PM. Students can be dropped off in the pick-up line at 8:20 AM.
We are excited to introduce our new mascot. All GCSC students are Cougars. If you look at the mascots you can see the progression from Baby Cougars at our Early Childhood Development Center to a fully matured college and career-ready West Side Leadership Academy Cougar. We also have a new vision statement.
"The Gary Community School Corporation prepares students for college and careers in a diverse, equitable, student centered environment."
“Doing what is best for students today, tomorrow and every day."
Our refined vision and mission statement will help us to stay on the path to meeting our goals. All decisions will be made with the best interest of our students in mind. The mascots are a visual reminder of our positive progress. We believe that these actions will unite our school community. With that being said, "Paws Up! Go Cougars!"

Late Arrivals and Early Pick Up Time
Our scholars are learning all day. Please drop them off at school on time, by 8:30 AM, and pick them up at 2:45 PM.
