In 1961, Western Hills Elementary opened in a portable building. The school building was completed in 1966, and opened by Mr. Everett Hackworth who was principal for 24 years. WHES split into two schools in 2000. Currently, we educate 2nd - 5th grade students and we have over 800 students on our campus.
