On behalf of our entire learning community, welcome to Westridge Middle School, home of the Wildcats!  We have tremendous pride in our school and community and we work hard each day to "Be Champions." 

Student success is our top priority at Westridge and we believe that starts with building strong relationships with all our students. We strive to provide high-quality programs that support the academic, social and emotional growth of our students.  We work alongside parents and the community to ensure success for all by providing support for any students who require it through extra time, varied learning opportunities, or other resources.

Students at Westridge are encouraged to get involved in our many after school clubs, activities and sports that are offered. We believe it is important to be connected to the school through positive relationships, a sense of community, and participation in extracurricular opportunities.

At Westridge we focus each day on following “The Westridge Way” - Respectful, Responsible, and Safe and achieving our “Goals for Life."

  • I can do something even if I don’t want to or it’s hard.

  • I can be okay even when others are not okay.

  • I can make good choices even if I am mad.

Our school’s mission and vision are designed to focus us on why we come to school each day. Through strong partnerships with students, staff, parents, and community supporting our mission, vision, and values we will continue to build upon our culture of excellence and the success of all our students.  

Our Mission is to create a caring community wherein students are challenged to achieve academic excellence and responsibility. We achieve this by following the Westridge Way, meeting the Goals for Life, and working to Be Champions every day.

Our Vision is to “Be a Champion.”  #whateverittakes

Our Values:  Collaborative, Innovative, Inclusive, Engaging, Empowering

I am privileged to lead such an outstanding school community and I look forward to another rewarding and successful school year.
