Welcome To World Language Middle School
The District’s new World Language Middle School is open! Sandra Santos leads the administrative team at the new immersion middle school. The program will provide a rigorous bilingual language immersion continuum for the District’s two immersion schools – Ecole Kenwood French Immersion and Columbus Spanish Immersion Academy, along with students from Columbus Global Academy, and on to grades 9-12 at Columbus North International School.
“I am excited to connect with students, families, and community partners to build a robust and engaging academic experience that promotes grade-level academic achievement, bilingualism, and bi-literacy in relevant and real-world ways,” said Santos.
She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, Physical Education, and Health Education and a Masters of Education from Wright State University. She is fluent in Spanish and is an experienced language translator. She was also formerly an assistant principal at Mifflin High School.
World Language Middle School has earned the Safe Routes to School Program award! Our students and staff participated in surveys to keep our students safe to and from school. Congratulations Leopards!

Dropoff is in the back parking lot, which can be accessed from Sharon Ave (yellow in the map below). Upon exiting the car, students should take the sidewalk around to the front of the building (green dots in the map below), and enter through the main doors.
Pickup will also be in the back parking lot, at 2:30 pm. Cars should form a line, and wait for their kids to come out. There will be a staffperson there to help organize the students.
Welcome back to school! A note for families: WLMS does not have Latchkey.

The past two years have been more difficult than we could have imagined, but we have proven that we are up to the challenge. It has taken the Power of One community joining together to set our students up for success.
The Columbus Board of Education responds to Governor Mike DeWine signing the controversial HB99 into law. "The Columbus Board of Education will not change current District policy and will continue to prohibit the carrying of weapons on all District property by any Columbus City Schools staff, students, and members of the public. Our decision is driven by the needs of our students, staff, and community."
