Academic Excellence

At West Middle School we reward and praise our students with academic achievement and behavior in various ways.  In order to honor and recognize students with academic excellence, West has three levels of distinction.  ONLY SEMESTER GRADES ARE USED FOR THESE AWARDS.

First Level of Distinction: Renaissance students must have a 3.0 or higher grade point average (GPA).  No D’s, F’s, N’s or U’s and no 4 or 5’s in citizenship.
