Welcome to West County Middle School, home of the BULLDOGS! Our mission is to develop a community of learners who are academically proficient, effective communicators, and responsible citizens. With your help, we can achieve this mission. West County Middle School has a rigorous curriculum is the foundation that will prepare all of our students for future endeavors. To do this, we offer a variety of programs, including academic, athletic, and extracurricular. Also, we provide additional tutoring daily before and after school. It is essential that every learner’s needs are met.
When addressing the needs of every learner, we must provide effective and appropriate support. My staff and I are here to meet your needs and support you in your efforts.
Some of the extracurricular programs we encourage your child to participate in include music, athletics, WCTV, photography, drama, and foods, to name a few. Clubs are also a big part of our educational environment. Some of the clubs we offer to students are Bible Dogs, FCCLA, and Junior Beta. Students who are connected to school will be more likely to care about their education now and in the future.
West County Middle School provides timely feedback to parents and students. Parents and students are encouraged to utilize their individual login to the district student information system. This service offers the most up to date information in regards to grades, lunch charges, and fees. Also available on the districts website are the school’s lunch menu, sports calendar, and a listing of upcoming events for the district. Also, each month, a newsletter will be mailed out that includes a calendar, lunch menus, and a brief note from teachers on what is going on in their respective classes. To be successful the communication must be two ways. We strongly encourage parents/guardians to come in and discuss any problems, concerns, or suggestions. It is best to call in and schedule an appointment to do this, but be assured it will be addressed in a very timely manner.
Again, welcome to West County Middle School. I look forward to meeting you and your child(ren).

Welcome to West County Elementary, Home of the Bulldogs! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our district and stay informed about what is happening at West County!
WCE takes great pride in creating an atmosphere where students can learn in a caring and creative environment. Together our staff encourages students to engage in a lifelong love of learning. As we focus on student achievement we will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote student growth and learning throughout the year. In our team environment, teachers will regularly collaborate, analyze data, plan instruction, and develop common assessments to ensure student achievement is attained throughout each grade level.
During the upcoming school year I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parent involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success. Ways to support and increase your child’s academic success include:
o Make attendance a PRIORITY including limiting tardiness and absences.
o Check Parent Portal regularly to stay informed of student progress.
o Communicate often with your child’s teacher.
o Read with your child at least 20 minutes a day.
o Limit television and social media, encourage outside play.
o Review the school day with your child.
Our vision for your child is to celebrate academic successes with contagious enthusiasm and dedicated partnerships, creating unity and inspiration in a safe learning environment. We strive to have a culture of excellence. We want the best for our students and expect nothing less from them.
Education is a powerful tool and as an educational community, we must jointly work together to ensure that all of our students have every advantage as they grow into successful and productive students in our growing Bulldog community.
Together we will continue to engage, challenge and inspire our students!
