Principal's Message

Welcome to Whitefish Middle School!

It is a privilege to serve as the Principal of Whitefish Middle School, a school with a well-deserved reputation for high expectations, academic excellence, and a positive, safe environment in which to learn and grow. We strive to inspire in students a lifelong love of learning and a desire for continual self-development.

Whitefish Middle School is home of Project PRIDE: Personal Responsibility Is a Daily Expectation. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to grow up in a school and community that supports them in making healthy decisions.

The middle school years are an exciting transitional period between elementary and high school experiences. Middle schools are grounded on the concept of recognizing and addressing the diverse characteristics and needs of our young people. Middle school years provide opportunities to explore many different interests while expanding skills and discovering personal strengths.

Our dedicated, caring staff is committed to promoting a positive school and community climate for all students' academic, social, emotional, and behavioral growth. We look forward to partnering with families in continuing to shape a safe, challenging, and nurturing school that is full of life, energy, and productivity.

We encourage questions or concerns that arise throughout the school year, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, our office staff or me personally. I hope that each student will have an enjoyable, rewarding, and positive experience at Whitefish Middle School.


Mr. Josh Branstetter
