Westchester Middle School
Grades 6-9 for the 2021-2022 school year
The Westchester Middle School educates students in grades 6–9 in West Harrison, NY. Students build warm and trusting relationships with their teachers in a structured environment where expectations are clear, and care for each student is paramount. In addition to the neatly organized classrooms, students enjoy a large gymnasium, an auditorium, a cafeteria, two art rooms, five science laboratories, a library, a computer lab, and playing fields for recess, intramurals, and competitive sports. We enjoy hosting visitors and showing them our building and our program.
While we enjoy hosting visitors and showing them our building and our program, currently, we are only able to direct you to the virtual tour or encourage you to register for an info session and download an application.
We hope to host prospective families in the future when it is safe to do so.
