Principal's Message

We at VWMS believe that middle school is a time when students begin to emerge as independent thinkers and start taking ownership of their learning.  During these years, students are shaping their beliefs and creating habits while developing the knowledge, skills, and attributes they will need to be successful in the years to come.  Our goal is to provide students with engaging and authentic learning experiences that will allow them to thrive educationally, emotionally, and socially.  We strive to become partners with families and Van Wert community stakeholders so that we can support each student in a positive manner.
