OUR BELIEF

We believe learning happens best when teachers continually develop, implement and assess curriculum that not only meets state standards but addresses student needs. School experiences are based on the six pillars of character.  A positive learning environment enhances the academic, social and emotional needs of students as they progress through their tween and into their teen years. Students at the middle school are involved in activities which go beyond the classroom; community service activities are held throughout the year as well as involvement in athletic and fine arts performance areas.

WEST HANCOCK MIDDLE SCHOOL WAS DESIGNATED A HIGH-PERFORMING SCHOOL BY THE STATE OF IOWA IN THE FALL OF 2018.
