Welcome to West Middle School, home of the amazing Wildcats!
I am Mónica García, proud Principal of WMS.
At West Middle School, our Core Values of COMMUNITY, ACHIEVEMENT, RESPECT, and EQUITY drive our work.
Community: Creating opportunities to connect, so that each student develops a sense of belonging within our WMS community.
Achievement: Elevating individual and collective assets while practicing a growth mindset to support continual learning and growth, so that each student reaches their full potential.
Respect: Developing an environment where everyone is welcome, so that together we leverage our differences to make a better West and a better world.

Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Mónica García
I am a native Coloradoan. I spent most of my childhood playing sports and the clarinet. I attended college in state and met my husband coaching high school basketball. We have been married for more than 30 years and have three wonderful sons, who have each found and followed their own unique calling. While they were growing up, my favorite thing to do was watch them play football, basketball, and baseball. We spent nearly every weekend on the field, the court, or the diamond, and I loved it! Besides sports and school, my other love is animals, especially dogs. Before coming to West Middle School, I was an Assistant Principal at Horizon Middle School and Brush Middle school for seven years. Before becoming an administrator, I taught high school and middle school Spanish, Language Arts, and ELL for twelve years. I absolutely love the energy in middle school and the fantastic students and families here at West!
