Canal Winchester Middle School is committed to our district mission statement of Empowering All Students for Success and fosters a learning environment of evidence-based instructional practices to promote each student’s wellbeing and academic success.  CWMS will continue to introduce students to the Portrait of a Graduate during the 2021-2022 school year. The Portrait of a Graduate describes the skills, attributes, and character traits we believe our students need for life beyond graduation. Our goal is to develop the whole child: Academically, Mentally, Socially, and Behaviorally. 

Please review the link below to read more about Portrait of a Graduate competencies.


During the school year, please make sure you check your student’s grades in PowerSchool Parent weekly and most importantly, talk to your child about their school experience.  We also encourage you to call with any questions and complete surveys when they are sent out throughout the school year.  Your feedback is valuable and helps us meet the needs of our CWMS families.  I truly believe a partnership between school and home encourages each child to achieve more and strive for success in their current and future goals.  

  Our CWMS team appreciates you entrusting your students to us for their middle school experience.  We are thankful to be a part of every student’s path to success!  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or your students’ teachers if you have any questions.
