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 want to wish you a Happy New Year and we are excited and ready for success in 2020.  I would like to share with you some updates as we start the new year.
First and foremost we want to take this opportunity to introduce the newest member of the Wade Carpenter Middle School Family.  Ms. Balviane Peralta is our new 8 Grade Science Teacher.  Her first day was January 6 and we are very excited to have her with us.  Mr. Thomas and the rest of the Science Department has been working with her and helping her with the transition.   She completed her bachelor's degree from Grand Canyon University and is a former Wade Carpenter student.  
We also want to share with you that our students who took the Mid-Year Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA) in December did very well.  A good number of our students did well and this helps us with our overall school letter grade.  We are working hard with our English Language Learners to receive the three additional points that can count towards our letter grade.  The End of the Year AZELLA will take place in February and we are focused on a strong performance again.
The next Early Release will be on January 15 at 1:30 p.m. in the Library.  We will present to the staff more strategies from our Capturing Kids Hearts Program to continue working on the relationships between our students and staff, and we will also present to the staff more writing strategies from the Office of English Language Acquisition Services(OELAS) Conference attended by members of the ELA Department and Administration.
We will continue with our Instructional Focus Training on Writing from Dr. Keith Young later this month.  On January 22, the Instructional Leadership Teams from Wade Carpenter and A.J. Mitchell will meet for the third time this year to discuss instructional strategies to help improve the reading and writing of our students.  Dr. Young will also provide instructional and administrative coaching for your WCMS Administrative Team.  This is going to be a great year!
