Students who are zoned to Westside High School and live more than 2 miles from the school are eligible for HISD bus transportation. Non-zoned students in our Magnet Program are also eligible. Students with other types of transfers may be eligible for transportation if space is available.  Additional information can be found on our Bus Transportation web page.

    Please drop off and pick up your child in the student parking lot located in the southeast corner of the school off Briar Home Drive. Do NOT use the circle drive (except for students with disabilities) or stop along Briar Forest.

    Students may park in the Student Lot in assigned spaces with a permit or on the street where allowed by city ordinance. Students with off-campus privileges must park in the Student Lot if they intend to exercise those privileges during the school day. Students may not park in any other campus parking lot. Students parked in unauthorized spaces will be towed at the owner’s expense! Information on parking permits, including the application, is available on our Parking web page.

    Visitors to the Westside Campus should park in the Circle Drive off Briar Forest in the spaces designated for that purpose. Please do not park in reserved spaces or the fire lane! If the Circle Drive lot is full, you may park in the adjacent lot in front of the school EXCEPT during the hours of 7:30-8:30 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. on school days when the lot is reserved for school buses only. If you are attending a school event after 4:00 p.m., you may park in any Westside lot, but please be aware that the gates on both the Student Lot and Faculty Lot at the rear of the school will be locked at 9 p.m.
