Welcome to the Portsmouth West Middle School Website! I am extremely honored to serve as the principal at PWMS. Our middle school contains grades 5th thru 8th. We have a very experienced staff who are eager and ready to serve your child.

Our school has a great offering of classes that not only focus on the traditional courses, but we also offer Vocational Agriculture, Engineering, Advanced Technology in addition to many Fine Arts Programs. Students have the option to choose from a variety of these electives each year which may one day open doors to advanced learning, scholarships, and so much more.

Our district also supports students who feel they are ready for exceptional challenges, such as Advanced Placement (taking high school courses as an 8th grader). Students may also participate in Quiz bowl, Senator News, Science Fair, as well as our school Spelling Bee. Each of these challenging programs give our students the ability to excel in leadership, public speaking, creativity, and self-growth.

Our sports programs here at Portsmouth West Middle School are strong in tradition. We offer football, volleyball, basketball, cross-country and track. Our coaches believe in teamwork, strong work ethic, parent support, accountability and most importantly self-motivation.

PWMS is a great place for students to grow socially, emotionally and physically. Please feel free to contact PWMS if you would like more information.
