Open Quote Kids are allowed to be themselves and excel in academics and the arts at Western Middle! Close Quote


by a parent
Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Open Quote My child is being challenged academically, and is thriving. We came from an MST elementary school where the academic culture was very strong, and he has seen continued success at Western.

The Performing Arts program has allowed my child to broaden his view of school, and it is inspiring him in new ways. He's learning that his potential is not only vast, but limitless. The class size allows him plenty of attention, the staff is pro-active and compassionate, and the Principal, Dr. Kym Rice, is fully engaged, informed, and caring for Every child.

We are very happy that we chose Western Middle School. They are truly turning the program around in a positive and major way!! We are confident that our child will be fully prepared to succeed in high school and beyond. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
