My name is Philip West, and I have the privilege of serving as the principal of Green County Middle School. I spent 13 years as a music teacher and band director in Edmonson County, before coming to Green County in 2011 to serve as assistant principal at Green Co High School. I have been principal at GCMS since July 2015.

My beautiful wife Belinda is a speech therapist with Caverna Independent Schools, and we have three boys: Caleb (13), Andrew (10) and Jacob (7).

In my free time I enjoy reading, gadgets, and hanging out with my family.

One of my most important duties at GCMS is to be sure that each of our students and families have a wonderful middle school experience. If you ever have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by phone at the school (270) 932-6615 (ext 2502) or you are welcome to email me at
