Western Hills History
Construction on the addition and remodel of Western Hills Elementary School, took place in June of 2008 and was completed for the beginning of the 2009-10 school year.
During the 2008-09 school year, Western Hills students were housed at the former Clegg Park Elementary School. Students moved back into their own building upon the completion of the remodeling project in the fall of 2009.
