Western Hills' motto is, "Opportunities + Partnerships = Success"

Welcome to Western Hills University Partnership Magnet Center magnet web page! We are a K-6 Magnet and partner with the University of Nebraska at Omaha to provide unique learning opportunities for all our students and staff. 

Our partnership with the University provides our students with extra value opportunities such as Band Buddies, and Service Learning Projects, Student Teachers and many more!  Our students benefit greatly from this program by receiving cutting edge techniques, small group instruction, and individual help from the UNO faculty, UNO students, and our experienced teachers. 

In addition to aligning with district and state content standards, the use of interdisciplinary and thematic instruction helps teachers focus on "extra value" standards to increase student success.  Our instruction includes multidisciplinary and multidimensional strategies that provide students varied avenues to reach academic and social goals. 

Our extra value standards are:  Expeditions, Electives and Enrichment or as we like to say "THE THREE E's." 

The staff at Western Hills is committed to academic success and provides a safe and secure environment where all students can reach their highest potential and become lifelong learners.
