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.

Middle Schoolers Explore their Digital Citizenship
Seventh grade students participated in a Digital Citizenship presentation, led by Media Specialist Kathy Ramirez, and MS Counselor Yeni Dumas. During Bible time, students engaged in discussions that allowed them to understand the constant social nature of digital media and its impact on their lives. Students were asked to explore their digital life by considering the amount of time they spend on digital media and write a simile describing their digital life. During the course of the lesson, students were encouraged to act responsibly when maintaining relationships over digital media.
A group of MS Students participated in the 6th annual ZooRun5K benefiting West Kendall Baptist Hospital and the Zoo Miami Foundation on Sat., Oct. 6. What a great way to help others while building community with each other!
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.
