Built in 1986 Brooks Wester Middle School campus was formerly Mansfield High School - South.
In 2002, Mansfield High School moved to its new building on Broad Street, and Brooks Wester Middle School opened its doors at the current location.
As you can imagine, much renovation occurred during the 2002 summer before Wester could open its doors as a brand new middle school.
Wester is the third oldest middle school in Mansfield. Rogene Worley and T.A. Howard opened years before Wester, and Danny Jones opened its doors in 2004. James Coble followed and Linda Jobe is the newest Mansfield middle school.
Mr. Brooks Wester was an active supporter of the community. The portrait you see above hangs in the front office of the school.
