Welcome to West Allegheny Middle School! At WAMS, we take great pride in forming and enriching lasting relationships that capture the best attributes of our talented student body and staff. Our students are challenged each day through a comprehensive platform that includes rigorous curriculum and instruction, a caring and supportive staff, firm dedication to extracurricular activities, school sports, and the arts, as well as a strong commitment to the development of our students’ well-being at one of the most pivotal stages in their growth and maturation.
Academically, a focus at WAMS is to prepare students for high school success and to begin to prepare students for 21st century career and/or college readiness. In addition to core content classes, our students experience many STEM related courses such as Pre-Engineering Fabrication and Manufacturing, Innovation and Design, and Business and Computer Information Technology, where they learn robotics, coding, and computer-aided graphing and design.
In order to promote leadership, kindness and compassion, school pride and positive behavior in all of our students, we are excited to be implementing a new school-wide Positive Behavior Support Plan and participating in Rachel’s Challenge. Please be assured that we truly embrace the TEAM notion that Together Everyone Achieves More.
