Life at
Middle School

A 'family-like' environment

Our goal is to allow children the opportunity to expand their knowledge by offering a program with strong academics and exciting extracurricular activities. We are proud of our caring, innovative and committed staff, who carefully challenge, respect, encourage, and nurture each child as a unique individual.

It is our sincere desire to provide each child with an environment in which he or she will grow and develop to their fullest potential – intellectually, socially, physically, and emotionally.

Life Skills Program

Our Life Skills Program serves to teach our students good character skills such as responsibility, integrity, and perseverance. Each month, students learn a different Life Skill and then one student is chosen from each grade level who best exhibited those Life Skills traits. Students are awarded with a Life Skills Certificate and attend a special luncheon with the Principal.

Student Council

Student Council offers students leadership opportunities and allows them to identify, discuss, and solve Middle School issues and plan upcoming events. Each fall, students elect a Student Body President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Class Representative for every grade level. Meetings are held once a month.

Community Service

In an effort to provide hands-on educational experiences to our students, West Valley Middle School requires 6-8th grade students to obtain five hours of community service per quarter. Several school sponsored community service activities are offered throughout the school year. Sixth grade students are permitted to complete their hours of service on school grounds, while seventh and eighth grade students are encouraged to perform services offsite to better their communities.

Social Events

Throughout the school year West Valley Middle School hosts a variety of fun events that build school spirit.


West Valley hosts two family socials throughout the school year to give families an opportunity to socialize with each other and to also provide students with a safe place to connect with friends in a fun atmosphere. Some of our most popular themes have been Mexican Fiesta, Hawiian Luau and Spring Carnival!

There are several dances throughout the school year. Dances are typically from 6:30pm-9pm, on a Friday evening, unless otherwise announced. Students can join the West Valley Dance Commitee to help plan, organize, and decorate the dances.

Wildcat Night

Welcome to Wildcat Night! This annual social event invites students to spend a memorable evening on campus connecting with classmates and staff.
