West Elementary

Morgan West Elementary

 9675 West State Route 37

Malta, OH 43758


Amanda Pierce - Principal

Morgan West Elementary located just outside Portersville Ohio, is tucked in between vast cornfields and woodlands. West Elementary houses over three hundred students ranging from preschool to sixth grade.  Our students come to us from Malta, Deavertown, and Homer Union areas.

At West we value all areas of the educational process in order to advance student development.  We have monthly celebrations to praise our students for making positive choices in the classroom.  During these assemblies we encourage students to be W.I.S.E Westies.  We want them to present Willpower, Integrity, Sportsmanship, and Effort inside and outside of the classroom.

Currently at West, every student has access to a Chromebook, IPAD, or laptop for daily instruction.  Teachers are pairing their daily instruction with interactive computer programs that encourage engagement and foster learning.

The staff uses the Class Dojo system to promote positive behavior choices.  This tool is used to communicate more effectively with parents about how their child is behaving and what they are learning. 

This year we have also implemented a student council.  Seven elected students from our 5th and 6th grade classes are working together with the teaching staff and the principal to develop leadership skills to help our students share their ideas.  They will have the opportunity to participate in morning announcements, welcome new students, and create new activities to promote school spirit. 

We expect this to be a great school year and always welcome input from families to help make West an even better place to learn!
