Welcome to West Delaware Middle School

Welcome to West Delaware Middle School housing approximately 450 students in the 5th through 8th grade. We have a dedicated team of teachers and support staff, committed to providing a focus on relationships, challenging academics, and 21st century skills. Our staff and students value the support of families, the dedication of our volunteers, and the resources provided by our community.

We are very proud to be a PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports) school. PBIS is a framework that is designed to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students by (a) emphasizing the use of data for making decisions; and (b) organizing resources and systems to improve implementation (TA Center of Positive Behavior Supports).

It is our goal to provide a safe and effective learning environment that meets the needs of all middle school age students. These attributes include an education that is; (a) developmentally responsive, (b) challenging, (c) empowering, and  (d) equitable.

I am fortunate to serve as West Delaware Middle School principal and look forward to being a part of the journey to excellence!
