Schools

Each of our 13 school buildings, like the approximately 9,000 children who attend them, has a unique personality. However, we work hard to truly be a community of schools. “That’s one of the things that I’ve been very proud of, that there’s cohesiveness and community within our school district,” WDMCS parent Threase Harms recently shared.

From all sixth-grade band students in the district coming together to perform, to all secondary teachers gathering to participate collectively in professional development, we know that by coming together we are stronger.
