Cannot understand the attendance office staff, Need ENGLISH speaking clerks please. I don't speak spanish nor do I understand the very heavy accent, all the words running together making it very hard to communicate.

I think this school is great. They have great staff and great teachers. They have a wonderful drill team that sponsors the school very well. the girls on that team are very respectful and they honor there school and themselves. This a wonderful place and wouldn't have my kids go anywhere else. Keep it up SMW doing a great job.

I tried to enroll my son in this school and one of the staff named Mr. Ross was very RUDE and didn't want to hear me out. Not happy with that.

I graduated smw in 2013 and i loved every minute of middle school. I didnt like some of my teachers personally, but as far as teaching goes there great. Ive never heard of bullying there but there is a some disrespectful children there. Other than that great school.

Stephen M. White Middle School is an outstanding school because of the community it services and the strength of it's extra-curricular programing to ensure that students are not just strong academic performers, but have a strong sense of citizenship and civic leadership as active members of their community. I am a Family Physician volunteering at my alma mater to help the students envision their dreams and build the skills and fortitude to realize them. Clarence C. Monteclaro, MD

A large number of kids at this school kids are very rude and loud. At the end of the school day , they just come of the gate so fast and just walk right in front of your car. The school even had to have securuity. They use bad lanuage in front of adults and other small kids. I can't seem to understand why the kids dress so disrespectiful. Most of the kids seem to be lost in another world and they seem to be trying to fit in with everyone else. Instead of trying to get a good education. If you have a child going to this school or will attend this school please pay close attentionto them. I do understand not all of the kids are this way. i am sure they have some good kids

We live in Torrance and i was a little annoyed that this was the ONLY middle school in the area that my 6th grader could go to. But since ALL of his friends are going here too, I guess it's okay. Let's see how the first year turns out.

I'm an 8th grade honors student at White M.S. and i've been there all 3 years. this can be a really great school for any student as long as they stay focused on their school work and take the opportunities avaliable there...so, over-all it's a pretty good school!

I can say White MS is an-'OK' school. There aren't much co-curricular activities, lack of discipline among students is very very noticeable, there are also problems about lunch lines, the pacing of lessons is slow and the grading system has a way too wide range in the sense that every grade is ten points away from the other - A's instead of A+ A's and A-'s - which doesn't make every single point worth it for students who strive hard.

My son has been a student of Stephen White since the 6th grade, and will be graduating this coming June. I am very impressed with the curriculum and teacher involvement, and it has been a wonderful foundation for his move into High School. The teachers are all great and show that they really are concerned about the students. His grades have tremendously improved from elementary school, and I hope that the good rappore my son has developed with the teachers will continue throughout his high school years.

As a former student of Stephen M. White Middle School, I think that overall it was a very good school. It provided a lot of positive reinforcements to intice the students to do their best. I think that is important to one's educational career.

My daughter's first year at the school was wonderful. She really enjoys her teacher, students and counselor. She was in the after school math tutoring which helped a lot. Whenever I was on campus, I saw no trash, students in class and very quiet school. I will be be back next year. I like the fact the library opens early for students that are willing to study before school. I hope they keep the after school tutoring program.

Stephen White was a great school. I had alot of experience and opportunities with their Astronomy Program which was built by a great teacher/mentor/father figure, Mr. Johnson, who was sadly terminated along with the program. With that program, I was able to enhance my knowledge and was able to learn better study habits which helped along the way through high school up to now, in college. Also with the program, I was able to experience things that i never thought imaganiable, such as to see a real space shuttle launch at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral; to learn advance knowledge of physics in the 8th grade, just in all to experience something that someone in the 8th grade usually wouldn't be able to. I'm sad to see that the program was not able to extend for other students to experience. And I have even greater sadness to see a great teacher go.
