Welcome to West
Welcome to West
New and exciting experiences await your student at West Middle School. At WMS, we work to make the transition from elementary to middle school not only manageable, but also use this time in your student’s educational career as an optimal time for growth and new opportunities.
Middle school is a dynamic time in the lives of our students – physically, emotionally and mentally. We have experienced teachers who bring an unparalleled level of energy to the classroom and who are here because they love working with the middle school age group. They create engaging and fun classroom experiences for students while encouraging responsible and self-challenging choices. By working closely with staff at across our school district and beyond, we ensure that students leave WMS fully prepared for the rigors and excitement they will face in their future there.
Our student body is divided by grade level into teams with color designations. Likewise, the teaching staff works within a team color. The result is that students move through their day within the same group of students and the same core teaching staff, creating a smaller school within a school experience.
WMS students also enjoy increased co-curricular options in sports, music, clubs and organizations. Students at WMS can also participate in the spring musical, which is open to all grade levels and is a fully staged and costumed production.
We have involved parents who find the middle school volunteer activities new and exciting for them, too. Children are never too old to see the adults around them participating in their education. We value your participation
Middle school students love their time at WMS. During these three years, they continue to develop their skills and knowledge in the core areas of academics in this challenging, empowering, equitable and developmentally responsive environment. They ready themselves for the next big steps in their academic careers and we enjoy being part of their journey. Welcome to WMS!
