Westmoreland Middle School’s highly qualified teachers engage students through quality instruction based on the Tennessee standards and guide them toward becoming an integral part of the school and community. School leaders embrace their roles and conduct themselves with honesty, transparency, and respect. Collaboration among grade-level teams and content-area teachers is essential to achieving student success. We hone our craft through participation in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as well as other learning opportunities to meet the changing needs of all students. Resources are easily accessible by all educators for use in quality instruction and when collaborating with other schools within the district.
The vision of Westmoreland Middle School is to establish an environment which will encourage our students to be actively involved in their learning, so they can be an important part of the school and community.
All students should be challenged to learn, achieve, and succeed.
A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.
Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.
Instructional practices should incorporate learning activities that include differences in learning styles.
Positive character education, including moral and leadership qualities, will encourage students to become productive citizens.
Parental involvement in the learning process promotes unity.
