About Middle School West

History of Middle School West

The construction of Middle School West was completed in 1965. At that time, it was called Stygler Road Junior High. The school colors were maroon and gold and the mascot was the Trojans. The school and site were developed and built with the thought that it might become the second high school in Gahanna if the community continued to grow.

In 1975, the school was changed from a junior high to a middle school and was renamed.

In 2023, a security vestibule was added to Middle School West. This improvement increased safety and now allows office staff a second opportunity to vet all visitors before they enter the hallways.
