Western Hills is a campus where teachers, students and parents work enthusiastically to bring academic and athletic honors to the school. Instructional leaders believe positive citizenship and an enjoyable atmosphere are just as important as standardized test scores.

Western Hills has extracurricular activities on campus that include Quiz Bowl, intramural and district-wide basketball, intramural and district-wide cheerleading, Little Rock Kids Marathon, National PTA Reflections Arts Contest, Regional Art Competition, Young Arkansas Artist Competition, spelling bee, community garden, B.A.N.D. and choir. Eagle B.A.N.D. has participated in Artistry in the Rock since its inception. 

Students are also very involved in community outreach projects that benefit the Rice Depot, St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis, Children With Cancer, The Heart Association (Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Hearts), etc.

We have an active PTA that supports the needs of our students and teachers. Please join our PTA and make a difference for our school!
