A message from our Principal:

 

Hello, my name is Hillary Greer and I am the very proud Principal of Westdale Middle School.  I first came to Westdale Middle in 2008 and never left.  Over the years, I have served as a Teacher, Dean, Assistant Principal, and now Principal.

 

Westdale Middle School is a special place where students and staff come not only from Baton Rouge, but from many different countries all over the world.  Just a few examples of those countries include France, Spain, Ivory Coast, Honduras, Cuba, Columbia, Ecuador, and the Phillipines. Westdale Middle School hosts a variety of special programs. Westdale is home to a World Language Immersion Magnet Program, a Gifted and Talented Program, a Great Scholars Program, and various programs for Exceptional Students. We embrace the diversity of our programs. We pride ourselves on being one school where people come together to make up our Hawk Nation.

As we begin the 2022-2023, we will continue to explore "what it means to be a global citizen."  The theme will be woven throughout our classes during the year.  As a faculty and staff, we are committed to educating all of our students to be contributing members of a global and diverse society. 

Our Positive Behavior program aligns with our global theme.  Students will be asked to exhibit the qualities of a Westdale Hawk. The values of the HAWKS include H-Honesty, A-Acceptance, W-Worth, K-Kindness, and S-Service. We will include school-wide and classroom level service projects throughout the year.

In closing, I would like to say that  I remain am positive and optimistic about the upcoming school year.  We are implementing new programs and expanding our successful programs to make 2022-2023 a great year at Westdale Middle School.

Best,

Hillary Greer
