Welcome to Walter T. Bergen Middle School! 

The mission of the Bloomingdale School District is to work in partnership with students, families and the community to ensure that each student acquires skills and core values necessary to achieve personal success and to enrich the community. 

As we welcome our new 5th grade students to WTB, our goal is to ensure a smooth transition from elementary learning to the more challenging aspects of early adolescence and middle school expectations. Middle level students experience unique physical, psychological, social, intellectual, moral, and ethical development from ages 11 to 14. Our teachers understand these challenges and will play an important role in their social and academic development. 

To our newly promoted 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students, WTB is a school which embraces a child-centered and nurturing educational environment that is designed to address the needs of the emerging adolescent. I urge you to get involved in a school activity and help shape your school community. 

For our parents and community members please know that the staff supports an environment of safety and security for all our students. Please consider getting involved with our school PTA and should you have any questions about your child’s academic or social progress, please reach out to their teachers or our school counselor. 

As principal of WTBMS I look forward to serving the district and school community. Please contact me during the school year should you require assistance.
