The mission of the Westmont Hilltop Middle School is to create a nurturing and compassionate environment in which all students can learn in a mutually respectful partnership with our community by providing meaningful, appropriate, and varied learning experiences that maximize student success.
WHMS strives to provide a place for exploration where the student will have an opportunity to discover potential future roles in career, educational, and social settings as he or she matures socially, physically, and emotionally. This educational program must involve the students, school staff, parents and the community.
