Principal's Message

Welcome to Wade Carpenter Middle School in Nogales, Arizona. We've earned a reputation for excellent teachers, a supportive community, and academic excellence. We serve sixth through eighth grades. We represent the growing Nogales Unified School District.

We take great pride in our dynamic school and in our vibrant community. We hope you enjoy our website. If we can help in any way, please call or stop by our school office.

A message from the Principal.

We completed Quarter One, enjoyed our Fall Break, and came back to an exciting and enthusiastic Parent/Teacher Conferences on October 24.  We want to thank all of the parents that attended these very important meetings.  Our teachers stated that they had more parents in attendance this year than in previous years.  Thank you parents.
Our Letter Grade was made public by the Arizona Department of Education on Friday, November 1.  We have a score of 60.05, which is a letter grade of a D.  We missed a letter grade of a C by .06 of a point (six-hundredths of a point).  We need to work hard to improve our letter grade for next year.  We have already started with some adjustments this year.  Our ELA and Math Teachers gave all of our students Interim Assessments the last week of September and the last week of October.  This was done to prepare our students for the Galileo Tests in ELA, Math, and Science that our students are taking this week.  
In addition to the focus on our Interim Assessments and Galileo Tests, the Math Department has started a new online program called Imagine Math.  The rest of NUSD is using this program and we started Imagine Math in October.  We are confident this program will help our students be more prepared for the Galileo Tests and the Arizona Merit Two Test in April.  We have also increased our focus on the English Language Learner Program this year.  This Thursday, November 7, will be our first ELL Parent Night.  All of the ELA Teachers passed out invitations to our ELL Students to attend this important event.  We are focusing on improved academic vocabulary to help our ELL students be better prepared for the AZELLA, Galileo, and Arizona Merit Two Exams.
We will get better and improve our Letter Grade for next year.  This is our goal and we will achieve this goal together-students, parents, teachers, and staff.  Thank you for your support and let's all move forward.
