Can anyone tell me if this School once was a juvenile hall or some sort of Correctional Facility? I've heard it from a couple people now. Just want to know if its true before sending the kids there.

I don't recommend this school unless your child is really a high achiever and self-motivated already. The principal is the biggest problem. She has been there forever and I just don't think she cares anymore. She just makes excuses and never takes responsibility for the issues at the school nor does she make any efforts to so anything differently. The pluses are that the school is safe and don't seem to have drug or violence issues, the negatives are that they are very limited on class options, field trips, extra curricular activities or prep for high school training.

Can't say much about this school. My ex moved out of the dry creek school district and this yr center school denied his transfer. I was so use to dry creek and how they keep the parents so involved and keep the kids on their toes. my son had projects left and right and they guided them to be ready for college. Well I got a letter how I can remove my son from Wilson c Riles and put him in any school in the district cause they had very low test scores. I knew my son education was in trouble this yr. He would come home with head aches cause the kids miss behaved so bad in class and the teachers couldn't handle them. Projects he had one all yr. I moved over in dry creek district so my son doesn't have to go there anymore. Sad my son will miss the friends he meet but doesn't want to.go.back. He went from being a A/B student to B/C/D student cause he couldn't focus. If you can try to get a district to.district transfer and don't put your kid in this school. My.kid is willing to ride his bike for 30/45 to go to a different school instead of staying here which is just a block or so from my ex I.think.that says a lot;(

I have subbed at this school and like any junior high, students of this age can be a handful. The adminstration was supportive for the most part and the prinicipal always remembered my first name. Teachers here care. Irma, campus security, is pleasant but can dish out the tough love when necessary. I don't have my own children, but if asked if I would put my child here, I'd say ... yes.

This is the worst school you could ever send your child. My daughter attends wcr and the teachers do not know how to control a class room. The office staff are rude an disrespectful. The acedemic system is horrbile and they have no real extra help. If I were you i would recommend you DONT send your child here.

WCRMS is the best school I have ever been to.I have been going there for 2 years now and yes that means I am only in 7th grade but to all you parents that say our school is quick to give out detions you need to double check your facts because 98% of the time it's the students fault and no one elses! I have seen a lot of kids that were getting D's and F's get help in class for other students and there teacher. I personally know all the staff there and each and every one of them is very kind and is willing to help the students rather than punish them. So if you think that our school is rude or unkind to other staff and the students you need to get a life and actually check your facts pefor you make a decision!

My step daughter attended this school in 7th grade (elem was k-6). She was enrolled in the AVID program, and learned valuable skills for High School and College. Her teachers were very involved, and easy to get in touch with. When her grades dipped to a C-, the teachers responded immediately and told my daughter exactly what was needed to bring the grades up. She ended with a high B average, many friends, and a confidence in herself not seen in many of today's teens. We were told she would not be able to start on the first day, and when I spoke with the VP, he solved the problem in less than an hour. All the ladies in the office are very helpful, but then again, I show them respect. Perhaps June 2 could try that.

Wilson Riles is one of the most horrible schools a child could ever attend. The front office staff are some of the most miserable women I have ever come across. Some of the teachers are good, but for the most part, they seem overwhelmed.

WCRMS is a fine school, that offers a new facility and ensures the safety of its students. The teaching staff expects the students to be accountable which is great preparation for the soon to be high-schoolers. I was able to contact my child's teachers frequently and they were always very polite and professional. Many of the parents I've heard complain have children whose grades are D's and F's in most of their classes. So I don't think the school should be slandered because of a few children that would rather misbehave, instead of doing what they should be at school... learning. People that complain shouldn't be so quick to point the finger, and instead ask what they can do to help change the situation, instead of blaming the teachers for their lazy parenting, because they are ultimately responsible for their own children

I couldn't agree more with the last review from 4/10/08! If your child is struggling academically, all you will here about are the credentials of each 'outstanding' teacher your child has. After a while this gets real old!Of course you work with your child to improve their skills, but ultimately I do not feel that their goal is to have your child succeed if it means going the extra mile, or doing something out of the norm. I do notice that they also hand out citations like hotcakes!

I think that Wilson C. Riles is an average middle school. The center school district has done a great job implementing a broadcast system to inform when your child isn't in class. However, a big concern when addressing how a kid can be in a class for the whole year and have a D or F and the instructor's response have you seen our Aeries website. The underline tone is that they want your child to be accountable for their actions but, what about the school and the instructor?

I think that WCRMS is a great school. They have really good standards and I like how much they care about the kids safety. So, far the teachers have all been really great.

This school is more about handing out detentions and suspensions than worrying about the students academic achievement. The teachers and the V.P.'s are quick to hand out punishment to the kids having fun and horse playing with each other than watching the kids that are actually fighting, or doing worse things. Let kids be kids, and pay more attention to the real trouble makers. Teachers need to be in contact more with the parents about the students and their grades. Not wait until the student is failing to notify us. Not the greatest school that I have interacted with.

Wilson c riles is a good school but there ways it can be better like more sports after school clubs and more ways for students to earn merit points. They do not really include the parents in any thing so that is a bad quality. I know t is a new school so maybe naext year wil be better but they just cut web out as a elective and it is now a afterv school program.

Lot of academic programs with wonderful teachers. Many after school activities such as oddessy of the mind and mesa. There is a basketball for boys and volleyball for girls. There is a band and choir and drama parents can be campus moniters or lunch helper
