Challenging curriculum, extensive exploratory options, and extracurricular clubs and sports at Macatawa Bay Middle School provide a comprehensive experience for students. A modified daily schedule for 6th grade along with separate 6th grade hallways allow for a more stable transition year for new middle school students. Additionally, our advisory, or “Academy” period for all grades is set aside each day for students to focus on social, emotional, and other skill-building lessons to help them navigate middle school and prepare for their transition to high school. Teachers at Macatawa Bay Middle School focus on relationships to support students transitioning through their adolescent years.
Our school is proud of the following:
1:1 Student to Chromebook Ratio
5 STEM Exploratory Classes available grades 6-8
7 Up to 7 HS Credit Bearing Courses by the end of 8th grade

Mrs. Graham is a firm believer in the power of education and is committed to creating opportunities and access for all West Ottawa students, including her three children that learn each day at West Ottawa buildings.
Macatawa Bay has been a wonderful place for my three children to learn. Each built incredible relationships with teachers, felt safe, and grew as learners. While all three were very different students, each was well prepared to make the transition to high school. I love how the teachers genuinely care about their students, not just as learners, but as a whole person.Carrie Johnson
Macatawa Bay has proven to me it has a child-focused intent. Macatawa Bay has accomplished this by offering a variety of classes to meet my son's academic needs and a staff that genuinely care about him being successful everyday both academically and socially. My son is successful because of West Ottawa's focus on relationships and academic rigor.Nancy Reynolds, parent
