Principal's Message

Parents, students, staff and community members,


Welcome to West Muskingum High School for the 2019-2020 school year!  I am excited and honored to serve as principal and look forward to working with the students, community and staff to ensure that West Muskingum High School is a place that empowers students to succeed.  Students will develop their individual talents, critical thinking, and technology skills by being actively engaged in the learning process.  Continuous commitment to improvement ensures that our students are well-rounded, self-directed, lifelong learners.


Advanced Placement as well as CCP courses are available for college credit.  An optional digital program allows students to complete coursework at their own pace.  The Global Scholars Diploma option, in partnership with the Columbus Council on World Affairs, allows students to demonstrate global competency in chosen areas of interest.  West Muskingum also offers an award-winning Agriculture Education program, robust visual and performing arts programs, and opportunities for students to participate in a variety of clubs as varied as Ski Club, Fishing Club and Archery, plus service opportunities in Key Club.


We offer 15 Varsity level sports as members of the Muskingum Valley League and the Ohio High School Athletic Association.


At WMHS our dedicated faculty and staff takes great pride in our efforts to provide meaningful educational experiences that demonstrate a commitment to the whole child.  Your feedback and input is greatly appreciated and welcome.  If you would like to offer suggestions, ask questions or become involved, please contact us.  Thank you for your support of our school and students.  Please continue to visit our website for updated information and upcoming events.
