Welcome to the Teays Valley West Middle School Web site! We are extremely excited to continue the Excellent tradition. We have galvanized our commitment to provide the best educational experience possible to the students of Teays Valley West Middle School.
Four generations of my family have attended school here in Commercial Point. It is with a tremendous amount of pride that I team up with our staff at the West Middle School to remain dedicated to the programs that helped TVWMS become an Ohio School to Watch and a National School to Watch:
• Academic Excellence
• Developmental Responsiveness to early adolescence
• Social Equity in positive options for all students
• Organizational Structures and Processes that support excellence
TVWMS will continue to embrace the philosophy of high expectations for every member of the learning community by implementing character building programs, collaborative leadership and a school-initiated family and community partnerships. We will work to meet the needs of our young adolescents in order to achieve academic success and promote personal growth. We understand all the adults in a successful middle school are advocates, advisors and mentors to their students.
Parents are an important part of the Teays Valley Local School District family. I appreciate your support and dedication to our school and students. I welcome your comments and encourage you to please view our Web site to e-mail staff and administration. I look forward to working with you this year.
