At West Middle School, we embrace all of our students, providing them with rigorous academic instruction in a safe and nurturing environment.
As a community school, we are not only educating the children in our care, we are a resource for their overall well-being. We provide access to support services, a place to gather, and educational opportunities for families. Our students range from PK4 through Grade 5, and the bonds with these children and their families grow and strengthen each year. When “our kids” leave West Middle, we know we have provided them with a foundation, not only for academic success, but for leadership. Students leave with knowledge that they are well-prepared to thrive in their future endeavors.
