Dear West Point Middle School Stakeholders,

It is an honor to be the Principal at West Point Middle School and I look forward to continuing the proud tradition of academic excellence established here, highlighted by being recognized as a Blue Ribbon School in 1998 and 2011. The faculty and staff at West Point Middle School are looking forward to another terrific year with an outstanding school climate and curricular and extra-curricular rigor. We are fully staffed with certified, experienced and highly motivated educators and we will again focus on the AdvancED Standards by which we are held accountable:

  • Standard 1: Purpose and Direction

The school maintains and communicates a purpose and direction that commit to high expectations for learning as well as shared values and beliefs about teaching and learning.


  • Standard 2: Governance and Leadership

The school operates under governance and leadership that promote and support

student performance and school effectiveness.


  • Standard 3: Teaching and Assessing for Learning

The school’s curriculum, instructional design, and assessment practices guide and

ensure teacher effectiveness and student learning.


  • Standard 4: Resources and Support Systems

The school has resources and provides services that support its purpose and direction to ensure success for all students.


  • Standard 5: Using Results for Continuous Improvement

The school implements a comprehensive assessment system that generates a range of data about student learning and school effectiveness and uses the results to guide continuous improvement.


We believe in building strong partnerships throughout the community in order to enhance our student’s educational experience and academic achievement and we encourage all stakeholders to be actively engaged in that process.
