On behalf of the entire staff we welcome you, as well as your son or daughter to West Middle School.
Creating a clean, safe, friendly, academically challenging atmosphere is important to all of us. Establishing a learning environment that is goal oriented, active in our community and responsive to every student’s needs is essential to our school’s success. You are a vital component in our school plans. We invite you to help us build a school climate where every student feels welcomed and is challenged beyond his/her academic expectations. We strive to create a sense of community for everyone, where they feel comfortable contributing in their own meaningful way, learning, and growing both academically and socially.
You are encouraged to join our Parent Advisory Council and to attend School Council meetings. We hope you will maintain contact with your child’s teachers throughout the school year. Our goal is to work cooperatively as a team with you, the community, and your student. We want your son or daughter not only to excel academically but to enjoy school socially as well.
We look forward to working with you this year.

Every Brockton Public School has an individual School Improvement Plan, a two‐year strategic plan for schools to follow to achieve academic and non-academic goals. The plans are developed among school leadership, faculty and staff and serve as a blueprint for success.
School Improvement plans require school personnel to set challenging goals for student performance, and must articulate the strategies the school staff will use to reach their targets.
In addition to approving each school’s SIP, Central Office conducts three to four “Walk Throughs” per school per year to gather data and provide feedback to site-level leaders about how effectively the plans are being implemented. What’s exciting about this is that everyone recognizes the importance of this kind of feedback and is actively supporting this kind of valuable work – principals, teachers, administrators and union officials.
