Welcome to West Jeff Middle!

Welcome to West Jefferson Middle School, home of the Colts! We serve students in sixth through eighth grades from Conifer and surrounding areas. Students come up to our school from Elk Creek, Marshdale, Parmalee (by choice), and West Jefferson elementary schools and matriculate to Conifer High School.

If you are interested in seeing the major curriculum units of study for core classes in the 2017-2018 school year by grade, we have those and course descriptions of our electives on the Curriculum page of our site.
