6-8 Overview

Middle Schools

Throughout the benchmarking process, WDMCS administrators, staff, students, parents, and the community provided feedback on the needs of our current two junior high buildings. Because instructional needs are driving construction solutions, any potential solutions developed will focus on striving to do what’s best for learners in a diverse and changing world.

The Board of Education approved the framework for the Master Plan process in January which will move sixth-grade out of the elementary buildings into a middle school model for grades six, seven, and eight.
