The WMSS vision is to help each child develop their full potential while becoming creative producers and life-long learners. We will accomplish this through a commitment to excellence and collaboration among parents, staff, students, and the community.

Our mission is to educate today's students using scientific discovery and the implementation of technology to meet the challenges of tomorrow's world.

All BPS schools have a new website provider, Blackboard and a new gradebook provider, Focus.

Introducing Beth Floyd

Beth has been volunteering at WMSS since her arrival in Brevard County three years ago. She has 2 kids, a 5th grader and an 8th grader. She loves to read, garden and travel. She is excited to be working at WMSS and looks forward to getting to know our parents and students!

Parents asked, we answered:

What is the difference between Extended PE & Recess?

150 minutes of Physical Education(PE) is required each week for elementary students. These 150 minutes are a combination of PE with Mr. Siegal and Extended PE with your child’s teacher. Both of these are structured and Standards Based.

Recess is 20 minutes a day of supervised, unstructured free-play for grades K-5.

The teachers at WMSS are so grateful to our friends at Wesley Church for their generous donations to our classrooms! We appreciate the love and support they lend to us throughout the school year!

BPS Vision/Mission

Brevard Public Schools will serve our community and enhance students' lives by delivering the highest quality education in a culture of dedication, collaboration, & learning.
