    Western Middle School is the hidden gem of Middle Schools in Greenwich. The principal vice principal and teachers are dedicated to helping each student reach his/her full potential. They give up lunch for extra help! Teachers send emails to keep parents up to date on units being explored. Teachers send "Good News from WMS" post cards and emails which highlight positive attributes and actions of the students. Students are appropriately encouraged to take ownership for their work. The diversity at WMS prepares students for the real world. Students are made to feel like a big fish in a little pond while at WMS. Each of my children were well prepared at WMS for the demands of high school and college. The PTA is strong and active with many opportunities for parent participation. Overall Western is a wonderful school.

    Western School had a great team of teachers. The Principle and the Vice Principle are wonderful. It is a calm and inviting place. As a new comer my son gets a lot of support but not too much to make him stand out (it is Middle School.) It is not "Greenichi" at all and that is a compliment!
