West Middle has a dynamic new head of school who has lots of innovative ideas. It caters to students who have working parents because of its afterschool programming and it allows students who have shown that they have the ability to work above their grade level to do so. West Middle caters to a wide cross section of students from many different culural backgrounds and its academic rating has steadily improved each year.
