West Des Moines Community Schools began their Home School Assistance Program (HSAP) in the 1980s. Throughout the years, the program has grown and changed.  We currently have twelve teachers who work in our program. Supervising teachers are provided to assist families in home schooling. We also offer enrichment classes and a variety of field trips.  It is our goal to help families in their homeschooling endeavors, and we will do our best to serve you in any way we can!

WELCOME 

We offer classes in the areas of writing, PE, Spanish, science, art and drama to enrich what you are doing at home.  Each student may sign up for one day.
