Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at West Wind Computer Science Magnet School (WWCSMS) - Home of the Wildcats!

    It is a pleasure to have your children attend West Wind Computer Science Magnet School. Let's work together to make this a great year. Your child is the most important part of your life, and our life. Our goal is to produce high achieving, culturally aware, respectful and responsible members of our society that are ready for College and Career Success. Our rigorous, standards-based curriculum addresses academic fundamentals, technology, critical thinking, and issues of diversity. Our teaching practices are both reflective and responsive by providing a multi-tiered system of supports to meet the needs of our students. 


    WWCSMS is dedicated to preparing students to be critical and innovative thinkers,

    demonstrating perseverance as they problem solve and learn the skills needed to be successful in today's rapidly changing and evolving technical world. We are preparing students for their futures - a pathway from elementary through college has been created in computer science - starting at West Wind Computer Science Magnet School! Our students are taught coding skills from TK-5th grade. We will have a computer scientist on campus every Thursday and Friday, along with a district teacher on special assignment, to work with students and teachers. Students will showcase “Epic Builds” three times this year using Scratch, Lego robotics and MineCraft. The community will be invited to come to these showcases! We will also continue to have our after school drone club and ozobot club and teachers will continue creating Google Classrooms.


    Help us support your children:

    - Make sure your child is on time to school every day. Children must be present

      to learn.

    - Encourage your child to read every day.

    - Meet the teacher and communicate often.

    - Monitor video games and internet use. Social media is not advised for children

      under age 13. Your child will get enough screen time at school.

    - Talk to your child every day about what they learned at school - ask specific

      questions for deeper answers.


    We have many ways parents/guardians can help: join the School Site Council, attend ELAC meetings, join us for Lunch on the Lawn, volunteer in the classrooms, help during school events, provide donations, join our Parenting Partners group, join our Parent organization. Call the school to find out more information.


    We are committed to providing the highest quality education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. Thank you in advance for your help and support. Together we make a difference in the lives of our children.
