    The Gift of Middle School at West Side

    Melinda Reichelt & Jay Treat

    Tracy Wyatt
    My son, Braden, is a graduate of the WSM class of 2021 and a current freshman at Saint Xavier High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. He received first honors this past semester and is an all-A student. He is involved in several clubs, after-school service hours mentoring elementary students, and plays rugby. I am so grateful I decided to transfer him to West Side for 7th and 8th grade because I firmly believe his success at Saint X is owed to his time at WSM. The transition to high school was seamless even with an entire move to a new city.

    Students Go Above and Beyond at West Side

    Donovan Elder
    I’m turning 19 years old here in a few days and serving in the United States Marine Corps in North Carolina. Though I’m gone and graduated, I frequently think about the relationships and adventures I had during my time in middle school. Let’s be honest, WSM middle school is the part everyone looks forward to most in their Montessori career; at least I know I did!
