Principal's Message


We are thrilled to be off to a great start this academic school year implementing excellent educational opportunities for ALL students. We are looking forward to continued excellence in the second half of the school year. The West Stanly Middle School staff continues to implement a rigorous academic curriculum to enhance your child’s academic skill level.

In addition to the academic learning going on in our classrooms, students are engaging in work outside of the classroom as well. Several students are participating in a variety of after school clubs (Radio club, Art Club, FCA, Knitting Club, Beta Club and Cyber Robotics), activities and organizations. Our WSMS Basketball teams play the last regular season game of the year at home versus North Stanly Middle School on January 7. Our wrestling season finished with our WSMS Wrestling team taking home the Conference Championship. We are so proud of what our Colts are accomplishing both in and outside of the classroom.

Another major focus area for us this year is parent involvement. We welcome all parents to become a part of the WSMS family! Check out our school website for current and up to date listings of all the exciting happenings at West Stanly Middle School! Our next School Improvement Team meeting will be on January 27th at 3:45.

In order to ensure the best opportunity for progress at WSMS, students  must arrive at school on time, bring the required materials to school each day and be prepared to do his/her best. Success is achieved when every player (student, teacher, and parent) is an active member of the team. When everyone on the team does his/her best, everyone’s a winner!

We look forward to continued  academic success as we move toward the second half of the school year!
