About Us

Mission Statement

At Wantagh Middle School, we believe that all students need to feel

cared for, valued, and loved before they are available to learn. Our

number one goal as educators is to ensure that our students feel a sense

of belonging and self- worth. A positive social-emotional environment

will increase our academic performance. During our students’ most

influential years, our staff is committed to meeting students at their

individual level, providing them with a sense of self-worth,

collaboratively developing a true love for learning, and igniting a

passion inside of students.
