About WMS



Principal's Welcome:


Hello Husky Nation!


I am Dr. Brad Bowling, Principal of Westside Middle School, and I wanted to take a brief moment to welcome you to the Westside Middle School website. Westside Middle School is Boldly Committed to Student Success. Our mission statement is, “A JOYFUL learning community empowering STUDENTS to reach their full potential as high-achieving students and responsible citizens.”  As you may have noticed, two words are capitalized in the aforementioned statement. At WMS, we emphasize the importance of a JOYFUL learning environment. While we take our education seriously, we want Westside to be a place where students, teachers, and support staff are engaged, and where school is a fun and exciting place to be.  We are also student-focused, and have committed ourselves to caring for, teaching, and supporting students as our number one priority.


WMS strives to be the “World’s Greatest” each and everyday, and thus, this has become our motto for the 2015-2016 school year.  As the renowned educator Rita Pierson once said, “You say it long enough, it starts to be a part of you.”  Westside Middle School is committed to four main tenets of school improvement: Quality Instruction, Family and Community Engagement, Professional Engagement, and Student Support Services. We hope you will join us in striving to provide a world-class education for the students of our community.


We appreciate your interest in Westside Middle School. Please don’t hesitate to contact the school at 770.307.2972 or email brad.bowling@barrow.k12.ga.us should you want more information.







Assistant Principal

Mr. Trey Neupert


Welcome to the World’s Greatest Middle School! My name is Trey Neupert and I have had the pleasure of being the Assistant Principal at Westside Middle School for the past four years. This is my fifteenth year in education, with ten of those years in the science classroom: six years teaching science at Cedar Shoals High School and four at Russell Middle School here in Barrow County. I am proud and honored to represent the World’s Greatest each day and I love what I do.  There is more to education than test scores and we do everything we can to empower our students to reach their full potential as high-achieving students and responsible citizens. We believe in joyful learning at Westside Middle and take every opportunity to BOLDLY step outside of our comfort zones to find new and innovative ways to educate our students. I look forward to meeting and greeting our new families this year to our school. Thank you for visiting our website and don’t hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns. You can reach me through email (floyd.neupert@barrow.k12.ga.us) or by calling the school at 770.307.2972.
