Principal's Message

  • Mark Henderson Principal Walter C Young MSWalter C. Young Family,

    We are beyond excited for the 2023-2024 school year and look forward to welcoming all our returning and incoming Knights.


    2022-2023 was a highly successful year for Walter C. Young. It was the inaugural year for our Knights of Cambridge program, which we are expanding for this year. While we still await our school grade, our students performed very well on last year's state assessments. Walter C. Young placed in the top 8 out of 36 traditional middle schools in every reported category. This included 100% proficiency in Geometry and Biology, and 99.9% proficiency in Algebra. We are confident we will continue to build on last year’s success.


    Please browse our website to find out about the three signature offerings at Walter C. Young. Our Knights of Cambridge program challenges students with above grade level material with a global perspective. KnextGen Knights is a three-year program focusing on computer programming, website construction and game design. And, our Falcon Flyers program, a partnership with Flanagan High School, affords 8th grade students an opportunity to take high school classes on the Flanagan campus while completing their middle school requirements.


    Lastly, please be on the lookout for Knights Knews, which is a weekly communication I put out every Friday at 6:00 PM during the school year starts. I give updates on what's happening at WCY, important reminders, and vital information.


    We look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with the best possible education!

    Expect to Excel - Refuse to Relent
