Principal's Message


Stephen M. Fowler, M. Ed.
West Branch Middle School
Phone:  330-938-4300



Welcome to West Branch Middle School! We are a veteran staff serving students in grades 5-8 in a beautiful new building located in Goshen Township, Mahoning County. Students receive instruction in Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Math, Music, Art, and Physical Education.

Reading and math are our major priorities so we learn by incorporating them into everything we do. Students are building academic, social, emotional, artistic, athletic, and creative skills they will use throughout their life during these middle years of formal education. None of this is possible without strong family relationships and the support of our community. We take pride in our active PTO and encourage new families to join us.


The vision for Ohio's children is all students start ready for kindergarten, actively engage in learning and graduate ready for college and careers, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, limited English proficiency, disability, gift or talent.  West Branch Local School District is working toward that end, as well as toward ensuring equitable access to high-quality instruction for all student groups. In short, we want to help our students grow intellectually, athletically, and in their character.


On behalf of the faculty and staff, I want to say thank you to our parents and community for entrusting us with your children. It is an honor to serve the West Branch community and we look forward to the 2018/19 school year.


Please stop by at any time to see the great things happening at WBMS.
