Welcome to West Ottawa Public Schools!

At West Ottawa, we focus on preparing our students to be College, Career and Life Ready.

Guided by a visionary Board of Education, West Ottawa works diligently to meet the goals of our district - and the high standards of our educators, parents and community.

Our Goals:
  • Increase student achievement for all students as measured by the accountability scorecard
  • Attract and retain students and staff as measured by retention rates
  • Efficient and effective use of district resources as measured by: 1) beating the county per pupil average in all major non-instructional expense areas, and 2) maintaining a fund balance of 15% of the annual expense in the General and Food Service Funds
