Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Waterloo Middle School!  Providing the best learning experience possible for our students is our goal and focus every day.  We understand that each child is an individual with a unique set of learning needs and interests.  Therefore, our faculty and staff members strive to meet the specific needs of each student, especially as they transition from childhood into their teenage years.

    At WMS, we also understand the importance of both classroom learning and character development, as reflected in our motto: “Work Hard and Always Be Kind”.  Our mission is to provide a safe and engaging learning environment for all students.  As a school, we recite the Purple Hands Pledge every morning – “I will not use my hands or words for hurting myself or others.” – and ensure that it is followed throughout each day.

    At WMS, we offer a variety of extra-curricular activities for students, including sports, music and clubs, and we encourage our students to take advantage of these opportunities.  While their academic learning will prepare them well for the future, the fun they have through extracurricular activities will further enrich their middle school experience.

    In an effort to keep parents and community members informed of what’s going on at WMS, we use Twitter for daily updates, information and celebrations, and we encourage you to follow us at WMS Tribe@TribeWMS.

    If you are a currently a WMS parent, you are encouraged to use our Parent Portal as a way to help support your child at home.  Parent Portal is website that gives you access to your child’s grades and assignments, and also provides a convenient way to contact your child’s teachers through email.  The link for Parent Portal is on the WMS website home page.

    Thank you for visiting our website!
