Welcome to West Sylvan - For Additional Information Click on the "About Us" Tab

At West Sylvan, we strive to create and sustain a
learning community where all members can thrive
and learn at their highest level.

Middle school is an exciting time for most students. They are given more freedom which comes with more responsibility. It is a time for students to work on organization and time management as they move from class to class throughout the day. It is our hope that they will become independent, self-directed learners by the end of eighth grade. Our teachers hold high expectations for your children both academically and behaviorally. We want to partner with you to make this a great middle school experience for your child.
