WBMS Positivity Breeds Success!


Picture of a bear head

When I think about what brings a smile to my face, the first things that come to mind are all the organizations we have at Western Branch Middle School. … What separates Western Branch Middle from the pack is all the clubs that our teachers volunteer to sponsor so that our students can feel connected to Western Branch Middle School. With more than 45 clubs here, it’s not uncommon during the week to find 10, 12, 15 organizations here after school. It’s a very active school, and that’s what we love about Western Branch Middle; it always brings a smile to my face to see kids heavily involved with our activities.
(Kambar Khoshaba, Principal)

Remember to be kind and always remember that you are loved.
(Avery Eure, Student)

I love the principals. I love the teachers. I love the staff. They are very supportive. They’re helpful. I love the fact that they reach out to you. They make sure that you know what’s going on concerning your children. Even more so, I love the fact that my son feels safe and he loves being here.
This is a tremendous school.
(WBMS, Parent)

“ As a former student and now a teacher at WBMS, I continue to be amazed at the resilience and creativity of our WBMS family of students, parents, staff, and administrators. Although we could not physically be together for the last few months, we were able to stay connected and showcase our Bruin spirit through videos, virtual events, spirit weeks, and social media. I will always be proud to be a Bruin!.
(Amy Daniel, 8th Gr. History Teacher)

Remember that every rainbow follows a storm; so, always stay positive even when times get hard.
