Wells Middle School
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Wells Middle School! Wells is an amazing school, as a result of the collective efficacy of our exceptional students, staff, and families. We look forward to empowering each of our students to make a positive influence on our school and make it even more phenomenal than it already is. The middle school years can be challenging, and we look forward to supporting our students in their belonging, their learning, and their aspirations, so each Wells scholar can rise like a true Phoenix and continue to experience success in high school and beyond. We hope you take advantage of every opportunity offered to you while you are a Wells Phoenix.

School Safety at Wells
To all of our Wells families,
Our students' safety is our number one priority at Wells Middle School. Wells has many policies, procedures, and protocols in place to ensure a safe and secure learning environment for all of our students. We strongly encourage all of our students to continue with the policy of, "See something? Say something!". Our students have been diligent with this already, and the best way to maintain safety is to continue with this practice. We look forward to collaborating with all of you now and in the future to support the success and safety of every Wells Phoenix.
