West Side High School is a four-year comprehensive community public high school complex in Newark, in Essex County, New Jersey, United States, operating as part of the Newark Public Schools.
The West Side campus hosts two separate high school programs that operate independently but share a facility and athletic programs:

The West Side High School Roughriders compete in the Super Essex Conference, following a reorganization of sports leagues in Northern New Jersey by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA). With 675 students in grades 10-12, the school was classified by the NJSIAA for the 2015-16 school year as North II, Group II for most athletic competition purposes, which included schools with an enrollment of 508 to 770 students in that grade range. Prior to the 2009 realignment, the team had been in the Skyline Division of the Northern Hills Conference.

Since 2009, the football team plays their home games at Untermann Field, which is shared with other public school in Newark, following the closure and demolition of Newark Schools Stadium.
