How does your DONATION HELP??
Last year, we purchased a class set of Chromebooks, 2 new drinking fountains, through our Teacher Grant Fund- an updated weight room and STEAM lab! Because we were successful, we also purchased new outdoor playground balls and 3 foosball tables for indoor recess! This year, we HOPE to ENABLE EVERY TEACHER to purchase something for their CLASSROOMS! What does your donation support??
Just a few examples of what teachers need...
SCIENCE and STEAM- supplies to build solar powered cars MATH- individual X-Y coordinate grid whiteboards for the whole class LA/LIT- Flexible seating (Ask your student what this is and WHY they LOVE IT) and the Latest reading materials (Magnus Chase ship of the dead, anyone??) We can't do it without your SUPPORT!! Donations DUE ! It's not too late to make a difference!

The school’s most important objective is to provide every student with skills that result in self-directed, responsible, and competent learners. The staff believes this occurs through the use of a variety of instructional strategies, an engaging and challenging curriculum, and constant monitoring and self-evaluation. Students are most successful when the staff works together and communicates regularly with parents regarding overall performance and progress. Young adolescents are most likely to achieve their personal best when there is a safe, nurturing, and intellectually challenging environment that values individual contributions and progress.
As a community of learners, the students, staff, and parents at West Orient Middle School strive to practice respect, responsibility, relationships, and results.
Our Motto - The 4R's
Respect: Be considerate of people and property.
Relationships: Conduct positive interactions with all people at all times.
Responsibility: Take ownership of your actions, decisions, and thoughts-right or wrong.
Results: We strive for personal, academic and social success
