Welcome to West Central Middle School (WCMS), home of the Heat. WCMS serves nearly 200 students in grades six, seven, and eight. Here we work as a team to provide the best possible educational experiences for your children. From teachers, associates, and secretaries to cafeteria workers, custodians, and bus drivers, we are all here for one reason - the students.
We believe that WCMS shares a partnership with the community in educating its students. Quality education for all should be provided.

The relationship among all involved in the educational process - students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members - should be open, positive, cooperative, mutually respectful, and supportive.
