My child has attended WBMS for 2 years. I have found that the school administrators and most teachers are doing a great job. The teachers that I have been associated with have been very helpful. Most teachers are willing to stay late to tutor students who are willing to stay. Some come in early to assist the kids. As far as the PTA goes, they had one several years back but found that it is easier to have parent volunteers to assist in fund raising and working around the school. My husband and I always volunteer to help when they need us. As far as getting to know other parents, get involved with your childs class and get to know the teachers. They will get you involved as much as possible. Beleive me, let the administrators know your available and they will call on you. Keep up the good work.
This has been our first year in the Bibb County School System and at WBMS. I have been disappointed in the lack of a PTA Program for this area and this school. These programs help to raise much needed funds for the school as well as give those who are interested a chance to get to know the other parents and staff and know more of what is going on at the school. I would love to have better communication with the school. I would like to thank the teachers that have stayed after school hours to help my child with any school work she has needed help with. Thank you Mr. Crawford and Mrs. Thompson. Also, I find the emails on class assignments from Mrs. Thompson very helpful. Parent, Dana C. Franklin
i think that wbms is terrable and they need to change princeables again.there is kids that pick on other kids and there has been teachers that has picked on kids to me they need to get teachers that is going to teach and not pick on the kids.
WBMS is horrible. The school is two years behind most in all categories. The students need major discipline and the teachers need to learn how to teach! Someone needs to seriously help this school.
My daughter attends West Blocton Middle School and loves it! She has a great teacher and is learning alot. There has recently been a principal change and we believe it has been very beneficial for the school and students. If there was one thing I could improve it would be to give the gifted students more support and time with their teacher. I believe it is unfair that the whole county has to share one gifted teacher when we put so much into other areas (like sports).
I think WBMS is a great school. The principal and the teachers really care about the students.
I do not like the principal, i feel like academically they have a major problem. I have yet to see a teacher qualified to teach what they are teaching, aside from mr franks, and he left.
We have had several problems with this school. My child was being bullied by a group of boys on a daily basis. This went on for so long my child would come home physically ill. Instead of confronting the boys and taking care of this problem. I was told, by the assist principal, that I should attend classes to help my child adjust to being bullied. Bullies are rewarded by receiving the 'Good Citizenship Award'. THIS IS THE BIBB COUNTY WORKING HARD FOR YOU!
We moved in June 2004 due to our disappointment with the local school system (Jefferson County). Our experience with West Blocton Middle School has been nothing short of terrific. The sixth grade teachers Ms. Tiggs, Ms. Lowe and Ms. Sellers were wonderful; not only did they encourage our son to achieve his potential but they made us feel welcome to be involved in every aspect of his schooling. Because of them and the school's other administrative personnel we wouldn't dream of ever moving. A BIG thanks to everyone at that school for all they do! -- Kristie Jenkins
I think the school does what it nees to do. Just if the kids will mind then it will be a better shcool. I attened it in 8th grade it was fine to me. The teachers take time to ask questions, ansewer them that is what I learned there. Talk to you kids about thier behaver and we might learn something at shcool
I was very disappointed with this school, it seems that the teachers are more interested in discipline rather than teaching, my child did not recieve the attention he needed, the principal does not listen to parents,therefore we took our child out and my child is much happier than ever there.
Leadership is absent from this school system. It is very unorganized and overall student test scores have dropped significantlly from WB Elementary School to WB Middle School. I am very dissappointed.
