Communication between parent and teacher is horrible. There is no parent involvement. Your child is on his own. So unless your child is a genius by nature he will struggle in this school. The resource person does very little to help. And when my child has any questions some of his teachers respond very brief and are sarcastic. I have been putting an effort in trying to help my son excel in some of his classes, but the teachers do not cooperate in giving me the information that I need to help him. So I have to guess most of the time what needs to be done. It has been very stressful for him and for myself.

WCA was a great school for my daughter! She went 7th-8th grade, as they had just opened. She had the benefit of smaller class sizes and real hands-on learning. Amazing opportunity for her!!

This is an amazing school that preforms over the top test scores and has the most amazing teaching staff!!! This middle school has hands on activities. EX: they have a sixth grade archeology class that has a dig site for the student to dig up things. They also have a total API of 921. This school is rated the 12 best out of 15 of the best schools in California and knowing that there are millions and millions of schools out their that's pretty good, no more than good, excellent!! please if you are in riverside county and your child has good grades please please please consider this school.

Thank you for your time. -Western Center student

This truly is the best middle school in Riverside Counnty. With an API score of 922 it is one of the top scoring schools in Southern California. Our daughter has enjoyed her first year and although we had our reservations because of the non-tradiotnnal curriculum, our concerns have vanished after seeing all the different extra curricular activities the school offers to the students. The teachers, administrative staff, and location are the best we have ever seen. I hope they grow to allow more students and extend to a high school in the near future. This school is not for everyone. It requires a significant amount of parent involvement, assignments are challenging, and the student must become very discilplined in order to succeed. However, the hard work does pay off!
