Welcome to Whitko Middle School
We Are The Wildcats
Located in Whitley County, off State Road 5 and HWY 30 you'll find Whitko Middle School in Larwill, IN. WMS is an extraordinary educational environment and serves as the melting pot for Whitko's two elementary schools, Pierceton and South Whitley. Families enjoy a dedicated and caring staff, enthusiastic students, and supportive parents who make Whitko Middle School a wonderful place for children to learn and grow!
"Whitko Middle School is a Community of Caring Learners where students and staff work hard to get smart!" - Principal Eugene M. Sweeney, Ph.D.
Intentionally built for sixth through eighth graders, WMS serves approximately 350 students daily with classrooms and facilities which offer contemporary learning environments enriched by the latest technology. Students experience life beyond the four walls of the classroom as teachers utilize strategies that empower students to take ownership of their own actions and learning. Additionally, WMS values collaboration with local businesses and educational programs like Junior Achievement.
Families who make the daily commute through Larwill find a centrally located school on the route to and from Warsaw, Fort Wayne, Huntington and North Webster. Not to mention, it's a great place to experience local cuisine or even fill up your gas tank! Whitko Middle School is the second stage of a child's journey following elementary education, and prepares students to become young adults ready to engage at the High School level.
See it, Hear it, Stop it!
We take bullying seriously at our school. As a result, we take proactive steps to help our students identify bullying, report it, and help put an end to it. Every student is important and every student deserves to feel safe while in our school.
