Westport Middle School is one of the most unique schools in all of Jefferson County! In the last 6 years, Westport has grown by nearly 80% (to over 1300 students!), which has brought on the need to recruit and retain some of the best, brightest, and most dedicated teachers in all of JCPS. Westport is always looking for great teachers to join our staff of professional and passionate teachers. Westport is a school on the rise and with vibrant programs such as our Montessori magnet, our award-winning robotics program, and our electric orchestra program.
