Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West!   Whether you are a current resident, prospective student or family, or just wanting to learn more about our school, thank you for seeking information using our website.

Middle School West is one of two middle schools in the St. Michael-Albertville school district and serves just over 1000 fifth through 8th grade students from St. Michael and Albertville as well as students who enroll from neighboring communities.  We program a middle school model of teams of students at each grade level with a focus on relationships between our students and families with our entire staff.

We have an amazing teaching and support staff that are committed to each and every student.  Please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher(s) throughout the year to partner in supporting an excellent educational experience at our school.  

Thank you for communicating any concerns, asking questions, and sharing student successes throughout each year at STMA Middle School West.  It is our goal to challenge your child academically while supporting their development through their middle school years. We welcome the opportunity to match the right support for each student and family and know that middle school years can be challenging.

Please feel free to email or call me at any time to explore enrolling your child at our school, discuss concerns or questions about your child’s current progress, or to share ideas to improve your child’s experience at St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West.
