    Since my daughter started at West G. Middle she has been more relaxed and she feels like going to school and she is happy. As a parent all you want is for your child to be happy and healthy. So this year is off to a great start.

    I love this school the teachers are fabulous the help the kids and are just fun to be around except mrs. wright she is rude and bossy to some kids but everything else is awesome!

    The middle school teachers and principal do a lot with a smaller budget! Students are encouraged to learn with experiential curriculum and the teachers are readily available and open to your concerns. The principal makes it all happen with his friendly yet firm hand at the helm. Students genuinely adore him and respect him as a leader. There's a lot of love for education in this district surrounded by private school options and it shows when our students win state and national awards and get into top tier colleges. Tremendous bang for the buck and a small town culture (in a positive way) to boot!
