Excellence for Every Child

Welcome

 Welcome to West Valley Middle School

   Home of the Wolves!

 The Importance of Middle School
* Rigorous math classes in middle school correlate
   with higher academic achievement in high school
   for African-American students (University of Illinois study, 2009)
* By late elementary school, students' ability to "read
   to learn" increasingly contributes to their overall
   academic success (Chall and others)
* Effective intervention for students with learning
   disabilities at the middle school level is directly
   correlated with greater academic achievement later
   (Batya Elbaum & Sharon Vaughn)
* "Now is widely recognized that during the middle
    grades we have the best chance to keep students
    on the path to graduation and prepared for success
    in college and career.  These students deserve the
    best we have to offer."  Betty Edwards, Executive
    Director, National Middle School Association 
 * "The level of academic achievement that students
    attain by eighth grade has a larger impact on their
    college and career readiness by the time they graduate
    from high school than anything that happens in high
    school."  From The Forgotten Middle by ACT, 2009
