Our Middle School experience is based on the belief that students of this age should be challenged academically, should be accountable for their actions, and nurtured spiritually by teaching Biblical principles.

Operation Pedro Pan Comes to Life for Seventh Grade Students
Mr. Chenet's seventh grade English class read "90 Miles to Havana," by Enrique Flores-Galbis, a historical fiction novel about three boys sent to Miami from Cuba as part of Operation Pedro Pan. This account came to life for students when they heard from five Cuban immigrants who came to this country through Operation Pedro Pan. The guests shared their memories and stories of being among the 14,000 Cuban children that came to the USA between 1960 and 1962, without their parents, to escape Castro's Communist regime.

myWCS allows for parents and teachers to easily communicate with one another within this private community. Parents are members of an all parent group, and may be members of smaller groups that pertain to their child's grade and/or extracurriculuar activities. Please be aware that when using the internal messaging system in myWCS, by default, all replies are sent to the entire group. If you want to send an individual reply to the sender of the message, please compose a new message to that specific person. This helps avoid large groups, or in some cases the entire school community, from receiving unintended messages. Thank you for your help.
