Wangenheim Middle School is one of the best kept secrets in the San Diego School District. We are academically rigorous with an extensive program of elective and extracurricular opportunities. Our outstanding teachers are content experts who employ the latest in educational technology to engage students and build their 21st century skills. In addition to the traditional four core subjects, math, science, social studies, and English, our students select from a range of elective classes. These include video production, band, choir, orchestra, art, Spanish, drama, wood and metal shop, yearbook, career explorations, and student leadership. The strength of Wangenheim’s elective offerings is a point of Wildcat pride and an essential component in our students’ middle school experience.
The middle school years are an important time of growth, discovery and exploration. Our highly successful P.A.W.S. (Positive Action for Wildcat Success) program fosters the character traits (responsibility, respect for others, positive attitude, and pride in their work) students need for lifelong success. Through our diligence and focus on the Wildcat Way we maintain a safe campus where students are able to challenge themselves and become stronger as a result of their successes.
Wangenheim Middle School enjoys a strong partnership with our parents and community businesses. With this support, we not only provide our students with an excellent academic education, but also ensure our students’ social and emotional development is maximized.
We hope you will choose to have your student become a Wildcat and discover the best that San Diego Unified has to offer.
