Message from our Principal
In addition to informal progress reports and online access to the Parent Portal through PowerSchool, we provide regular updates about your student’s academic progress through individual Report Cards. Once a year, we offer a more holistic view of school accomplishments through the North Carolina School Report Card.
This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. We also provide information about how our school performed in context of Annual Measurable Objectives (formerly AYP). The School Report Card also communicates data related to the number of suspensions and expulsions within our school. You may also access report data specific to our district, and for the State’s education system as a whole.
Weddington Middle School embraces the middle school philosophy by continuing to team students so that they will have a greater sense of community within our school. All teachers manage websites to effectively communicate with parents, and to provide enrichment and assistance related to academic achievement. WMS continues to meet Expected Growth Status set forth by the State, and proudly represents our community as a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School--the only such middle school in all of North Carolina. We’re also proud of more recently earning recognition as one of the “Top 50 Best Middle Schools in the Nation” by www.bestschools.org. Only through the diligent work of faculty and staff members, students, and parents are these distinguished accomplishments made possible.
State and local education leaders are committed to providing parents with more information about schools. Well-informed parents who participate in their children’s education enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike.
At Weddington Middle School, your involvement proves vital to the success of our school! I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully, and feel free to contact me directly to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the Report Card. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in our school.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you, and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child a high-quality education.
Principal Marcus Leake
