Windy Hill Middle School
Ms. L. White (A-K ) Ms. J. Roehm (L-Z)
Middle school is a time of intense challenges and changes for the middle school learner. With help from supportive parents and school personnel, this will be an opportunity for growth and development. We hope to help our students, during these middle school years, learn to discover talents, develop new skills and to plan for the future.
Career Cruising for All!
This year all students will work with counselors on career development. Sixth and seventh grade students will determine what their interests are and explore careers of interests. Seventh and eighth grade students will do a more in depth research of colleges, universities and trade/tech schools, and/or armed services, create goals and complete information about hobbies, interests, extra curricular activities, and special awards. Each student will create a portfolio which will be accessible throughout his or her school career.

As a member of the CTY Talent Search, your child takes a test designed for students several grades higher. Results from this above-grade testing will profile your child's individual math and verbal abilities and show how he or she compares to other very bright, same-aged students in the US and around the world.
