Westwood Regional Middle School takes pride in supporting positive causes. These initiatives are always done school wide involving all staff and students. WRMS has raised funds to support breast cancer awareness/research, women's heart health, and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society just to name a few. Supporting our community and those in need is a wonderful opportunity for students and staff alike.
Westwood Regional Middle School provides a research-based comprehensive program for all sixth and seventh grade students. Students take responsibility for their own learning...learning to work individually and collaboratively on problem-based tasks is at the core of our instructional design. WRMS courses address the Common Core Standards and provide a whole learning process that is interactive for students from the start of grappling with a problem to brainstorming solutions and utilizing resources to affect change.
Character is defined as “the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” At WRMS all members of our school community are expected to meet high character standards. Fostering a positive learning environment is incumbent upon us all. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best…”Lead a life so that others will remember you not by your wealth or position, but by the content of your character.”
Positive Behavior Support is not just another initiative. It is a lifelong change in how our school plans for and deals with discipline and problem behaviors by proactively encouraging and rewarding positive social decision-making. WRMS’s HIGH FIVE! program is the bedrock with which school-based decisions are made. Our students have clearly defined expectations, which lead to a warm school climate where students are accountable, empathetic, and successful.
