West Ada Community Schools exist to improve student outcomes and provide families the tools they need to be their best. By transforming high-needs schools into community hubs that bring a wide range of resources and opportunities directly into the school, we are able to remove barriers and provide direct support to students and their families. - Integrated Student Supports: Wrap around services to address physical and social/emotional needs. - Collaborative Leadership & Practices: School leaders, parents, and community partners working together toward a common goal. - Expanded & Enriched Learning Opportunities:  Opportunities such as before and after school support or experiences within the school day. - Family & Community Engagement: Home - School connection. Schools provide services such as parenting classes, English classes, and computer classes. - Community School Resources: After school partnerships & programs, field trips, family events, run/walk clubs, school gardens, parenting classes, homeless resources, mentor programs, community collaborative, student and families necessities including clothing, shoes, school supplies, and household items. -  Desert Sage Elementary School 9325 W Mossywood Drive, Boise, ID 208-350-4020 -  McMillan Elementary School 10901 W McMillan Road, Boise, ID 208-855-4479 -  Peregrine Elementary School 1860 W.
