Part of our middle school philosophy is to provide your student with as many opportunities and exposures to educational enrichment and activities as possible. As such, WMS offers a variety of programs to promote student relationships, connectedness, and a positive school climate. In addition, we offer a variety of extracurricular activities and enrichment opportunities. These are school-sanctioned groups or events, not offered for credit or grades, designed to broaden, develop, and enhance school experiences in the areas of academics, athletics, and music. Please see the attached list, which describes a few of the many interesting opportunities your student will have at the middle school.
School Performance ReportThe School Report Card is like an annual health check-up. The purpose is to provide a picture of overall the "health" of the district. Included in this report is data about academics, attendance, and other indicators of performance. The district uses the information in this report to identify areas of strength and areas in need of improvement.

Criminology and scientific investigation
Enrollment information is broken down by gender, ethnicity, disability and English proficiency.
Attendance is face-to-face instructional contact between a student and a teacher. It is collected for the entire school year. The attendance rate is actual days of attendance divided by possible days of attendance, expressed as a percentage. The smallest reportable unit of attendance is one-half day. (2006-07 data is most current data available on DPI webpage.)
A habitual truant student is defined as one who is absent from school without an acceptable excuse for part or all of five or more days on which school is held during a semester. Habitual truants are reported for all grades except Pre-Kindergarten. The habitual truant rate is the number of habitual truants divided by grade enrollment counted on the third Friday in September.
Suspension and Expulsion data
Out of school suspensions are absences from school imposed by the school district for disciplinary reasons. Suspended students are counted only once (number of pupils suspended), and the suspension student rate is the number of pupils suspended divided by the third Friday enrollment. Suspension days is the total of days lost to suspension. (2006-07 data is most current data available on DPI webpage.)
