West Point Middle School is part of the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), which operates 191 schools in 14 districts located in 12 foreign countries, seven states, Guam, and Puerto Rico. WPMS includes grades five through eight, totaling about 250 students. The main building of the school was constructed in 1934 and is a historic landmark on post.
A twenty-eight million dollar military construction project was awarded in 2010 to renovate a portion of the existing facility and construct an addition with state-of-the-art science, music, art, and library spaces.
WPMS has earned the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award from the U.S. Department of Education twice, in 1998 and most recently in 2011, one of just thirty-three middle schools in the nation to be so honored. This recognition is a direct result of the high standards and scaffolds of support in place for every single learner, each and every day at WPMS.
