I have a 5th grader at WHMS. This is his first year in the school system at GroveHill. We were very pleased at the hospitality at WHMS when we enrolled,which made us feel alot more comortable about changing schools.I think that has made his transition alot easier.ThanksWHMS!

Having moved to Grove Hill from the Midwest, I'm a little disappointed in the fact that there are no scheduled Parent-Teacher conferences around report card time. I think the addition of this would make a good school great! The teachers are great, from the bit of time I've spent with them...but they could probably spend a little more time explaining things when they see there are kids that just don't get what they're teaching.

Wilson Hall Middle is a very nice school. We attend lots of fun activities and do things that are very important in later life.although my past three years at the middle school have gone by very fast, I will always remember the falculty and the school. As a current student and supporter of Wilson Hall I rate it as a five.

This school is very nice. my two kids go there they really love it. it has all sorts of clubs and a lot of acedimic things. the students learn a whole lot of new things and the teachers are wonderful. a few of the clubs they have are drama, SGA, Beta, and science. they also have cheerleading and footall as well. The students that go there are always nice and will do any thing you ask them to do.my daughter is going into the 7th grade and is always in the academic program every year she strives to make # 1. She says,' I love trying my best and getting to do things for my hard work.' The school is not very big but that doesn't matter. Because the students are so nice and the principle is outstanding. the parents as well as myself are a big help tp the school.
