Western Mennonite School
Equipping students for a life of faith & learning

A Place To Be

A place where you can believe is special. It’s a quiet space with internal exploration, and lights up with energy in the sharing of discoveries: in chapel services, organized activities, and can even be found in the classroom at Western Mennonite School. With the merging of faith and learning, young people on the WMS campus seem open to the natural care given by a nurturing community of students, faculty, staff, parents, grandparents, alumni, and outside supporters. There is an atmosphere of togetherness that is engaging, where students can freely express their views, grow from their efforts in relationships, and blossom in pursuit of their God-given gifts and passions. Western Mennonite is best defined by the community its Mennonite heritage fosters, and is a unique place where its students can move close to Christ by simply being themselves.

At Western Mennonite you can be a part of a Christ-centered community dedicated to the spiritual nurture of its students. We will invite you to consider the weekly challenges from our chapels, small groups, and Bible classes, and ask you to contribute your views in the classroom. Encouraging faculty and staff will mentor and disciple you in your relationship with Christ. And while we focus on Christ being the center of our lives, Western Mennonite is a global community that respects the views of all people.

“Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

Proverbs 22:6

While at WMS, students in each grade can experience enriching activities and opportunities with friends and classmates from around the world. We believe you have been uniquely created and are valued. That’s why we offer so many avenues for you to get involved. It is hard to describe the accepting community at WMS without experiencing it, but what we can tell you is that you can belong here by simply and exquisitely being you. It’s not about the extracurricular activities, although they are fun–it’s about growing into yourself alongside friends.

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers
live together in unity!”

Psalm 133:1

Callixte (seen above) graduated from WMS in 2012. He achieved a 3.455 GPA and received honors for the hard work he put into his academic efforts. What you wouldn’t know from talking to Callixte is that he strongly desires to return to his home country of Rwanda and help by becoming a doctor and serving his community. Callixte chose a positive life outcome despite the genocide aftermath he experienced before coming to WMS. At WMS we like to release students to pursue their God-given gifts and passions. Within the lines of safe and wise exploration, we prayerfully hope to see individuals in pursuit of God’s direction. A courageous follower, Callixe has now attended Yakima Valley Community College and making a choice to create his future alongside Christ.

“…I have come that they might have life,
and have it to the fullest.”

John 10:10b
