History

Western Middle School is a school servicing students in grades 6-8 within the Bay City Public School District in Bay City, Michigan. It is located at 500 W. Midland, Auburn , MI. Western Middle School shares a complex with Western High School. Western Middle School’s mascot is a Warrior and the representing colors are brown and gold. The fight song is Curhee, which is the same as Western High School.

Due to enrollment numbers, Western Middle School was constructed in the 1978-79 school year. The school operated on a split schedule during the first year of operation and then transitioned into a daily schedule the following school year.  As enrollment increased, a bond was passed by the supportive community to fund a much needed addition, which was erected in 2005-2006. This addition added classrooms as well as science labs to the Western Complex. Western Middle School shares a media center, gymnasium, pool, auditorium and cafeteria as well as outdoor facilities with Western High School.
