Mission and Vision


Vision:  Waimea Middle School – A Place of Infinite Possibilities

Mission:  “Waimea Middle School empowers all students with the skills, values, and cultural understanding to successfully navigate high school and beyond.”

Our beliefs about teaching and learning at WMPCCS:

Student success is a responsibility shared by all stakeholders: students, families, teachers and staff, administrators and the community.

  • All students are unique and deserve a rigorous, creative and nurturing school environment that encourages them to realize their individual goals and aspirations as they move through the formative middle school years.
  • Students benefit from learning opportunities that are culturally relevant and encourage appreciation and respect for diversity.
  • It is the school’s shared responsibility to develop students’ critical thinking skills necessary for success in the 21st century. 
  • Quality curriculum and instruction, as well as ongoing assessment, are critical elements for student success.
