This is an awesome school. My child is in 7th grade. We have another MIddle School in Nogales, but I would not take her anywhere else except Wade Carpenter!! The principal, office staff and teachers are very cooperative and whenever we, as parents, need anything they are there! They work together and hard with the students. Keep up the good work, WCMS!!!

Wow this school is amazing! The students are involved in many extracurricular activities like baile florico, sports, cheers and poms, and music classes like cadet band, mariachi, choir, orchestra, and much more! Wade Carpenter was announced performing plus school and defeated Nogales middle school Desert Shadows since it is only a performing school. I recommend this school for its great staff and signs of great discipline. Please also donate school supplies to our school. I am a student in Wade Carpenter and i assure you of the exeeding satisfaction you will have!

The principal of this school talks a good game, but make idle threats that the staff and students know she will not carry through on. The inconsistancies make it difficult to maintain discipline and high standards. The students are shortchanged because of the abundance of long term subs hired to replace qualified certified teachers. Why do the certified staff members leave? Lack of support from the principal. There are good, caring, qualified teachers and non-teaching staff, but their numbers are dwindling.

The Principal at WCMS runs a tight ship. Several of the teachers are excellent- and many are OK others are just not fit for being teachers. After the Staff Turn in 2006 the school has been improving. I would not pick any other school for my child to attend.

Wade Carpenter has a great principal. She has high expectaions for students and staff members at this fine school. There are no differences in curriculum at both middle schools. Dicipline is a high priority for the principal of this school.

They are lacking a good principal and adequate resources. From my experience at this school, the teachers are ther more to babysit than teach.
