    Welcome to Brittany Woods Middle School!

    While moving up to sixth grade is an exciting time of transition, we realize that it's all new to you. That's why our entire school team is standing by to help you find your way. We can't wait to meet you! On the first day of school, please come ready to make new friends and to set new achievement goals. In turn, our bold promise to you is that over the next three years, we will help you gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence you need to surpass your "first day" of middle school goals. When the time comes, you will be ready to move up to University City High School with new purpose and with a new determination to reach higher and dream BIGGER! The future is yours and it all starts here!
