Welcome to the website of the Wantagh Middle School.  Our school is focused on providing a rich learning experience for students in grades six through eight. 
We take great pride in our academic program which offers a rigorous curriculum, opportunities for honors placement, and new technological experiences used as instructional tools in the classroom.  On this website you will find our curriculum guide, and links to our teacher’s websites.
In addition to our outstanding academic program we also offer a very strong extracurricular program.  As you explore this website you will find links to over twenty different clubs that your child can join.  In addition, we offer many sports teams and events that your child can participate in. 
Our Advisory Program offers a unique opportunity for students to work on character development.  One time each month students are led in a discussion about a multitude of topics to enhance their social and emotional well being.  More information about these topics can be found by following the About Wantagh MS link above and selecting the Advisory Program page.

Open lines of communication between home and school are very important during this crucial time in a child’s development.  We offer two very informative newsletters on our website that discuss many issues associated with middle school students, you can find them on this page. I hope that you find the information on this website very useful, as always thank you for your help and support on behalf of our children.

Yours truly,

Dawn Matrochano
