Wellington Middle School
1964 - 2019
We are celebrating over 55 years of academic excellence in our community! Wellington Junior High School opened in 1964 after serving as Wellington High School since 1926. A new building was built in 1993 with an addition in 2001, another in 2007 and another in 2011. As of the fall of 2009, we are Wellington Middle School (WMS), grades 6, 7 and 8! A long line of successful students and athletes have come through the doors of our school!
Our primary mission is to educate every student with high quality instruction and learning in every classroom every day.
