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. Our goal is to prepare each student to seek jobs, consider careers, pursue higher education, and be responsible citizens. 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.
