Message from our Principal

Summer 2019

Dear Walter Colton Middle School Families,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! It is an exciting time at Walter Colton Middle School and I am pleased to partner with you, your child, and our staff to provide a wonderful experience at WCMS this year. 

Upon completion of my first year at Walter Colton Middle School I can say genuinely I love this age and stage. Middle school students face the challenges of developing independence and individuality, wrestling with a growing need to be a part of a social family outside of the home and physical and emotional maturation. In spite of all they are going through they are resilient, eager, funny and quirky beings. Each day brings a brand new opportunity to help them navigate this period of great changes.

As an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program candidate school, we are working to prepare students for full participation in an increasingly globalized world. It includes courses in all traditional subject matter taught in a way to guide students to deeper, more student-driven, interdisciplinary exploration into issues, questions and problems of global importance. The Middle Years Program shapes curriculum, teaching, and assessment into an inquiry based learning experience, and consists of eight subject groups integrated through five interactive areas providing global contexts for learning. The goal of the Middle Years Program is to create citizens equipped to develop original ideas while being cognizant of the ethical and cultural impact of their actions.

It is a great honor to lead Walter Colton and serve our students, families and staff. I am a collaborator, a listener, and will hold high expectations for students and staff to ensure academic success for your child.

My door is always open to you. Feel free to contact our office at (831) 649-1951 or email me at
