The school was pretty great, and I understand some of the students were protesting the dress code which is actually not that bad. They also give less homework then other schools and if you pay attention in class you can get it done in less then an hour. My child did not experience bullying as a student at WMS as she was a Safe School Ambassador. The bullying issue has decreased somewhat and the teachers are against bullying. I thought the principal was okay yet he wasn't at the school a lot. I liked how most teachers were Common Core based before there was Common Core. Overall it was a great school.

This school gives too much homework and overreacts to everything! The principle is also creepy and annoying and so are the staff DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL!

The teachers are BULLIES. My daughter is constantly put down and bullied by her math and science teacher. When my daughter goes to her teacher during tutorial and asks for one on one help the teacher tells her it's her fault and she should have paid more attention in class. Also when my daughter receives a bad grade on a test the teacher will sarcastically tell her "steller job". The teacher needs to realize SHE is the problem, not my daughter who is actually trying. When the principal was contacted he blamed my daughter not the teacher and her bad teaching skills. Thank god she is graduating soon.

Dealing with the district's administrative staff is a nightmare. The administrative secretary has been pugnacious, unprofessional and rude and has blocked our attempts to complain to the superintendent about her behavior. Between this and friends' families leaving for bullying and supervision issues, we're going with another school.

Unfortunately, the administration does not handle any feedback from parents whether it be bullying, bad teachers or poor curriculum choices. Multiple children involved in bullying and "packs" here, but school counselors only tell the bullied they need to stay away from bullies. Principal seems very nice and caringd. PE classes are too full, many injuries occur, quite a few very serious.

The bullying at this school is out of control. After even having to get law enforcement involved, had to remove my child from the school while the bullies remained.

My daughter attended Oak Grove K through 5. In 4th grade she was placed in a 3/4 mixed class. I had several meetings with the principle to attempt to get her moved because she is a child that needs guidance. My wishes were repeatedly ignored and, in my opinion, she was thrown under the bus. Her star scores dropped dramatically and she was totally unprepared for 5th grade. She all but flunked 5th grade even though I hired a tutor to try and get her caught up. Her report cards up to 5th grade were excellent. We changed districts as a result.

My daughter has had a tough time this year dealing with 6th grade girl issues. Although I'm not sure if it is bullying or not, I don't think the principal and teachers are taking it seriously enough. In fact he principal has not even responded to my email. The curriculum, ont the other hand, has been outstanding.

This school does not deal with bullies. My math class was so out of control my teacher could not teach. Look at how far math has dropped. The school does not care how much bullying goes on. Parents are having their kids dropped in math classes in other schools. Willowside needs a new program for bullies.

Caring teachers, small school setting, innovative programs, great support for struggling kids.

Oak Grove has gone through some growing pains with their remodel and their change over to a charter school however they worked really hard at making this transition work for the students. In a time where schools are making cuts this school offers many electives and offers a green house/nursery where the children are exposed to various live science projects. The school sports a gym, library, computer lab, science lab, kitchen and a weight room. The school does lack in the special education department but the children they do take on they seems to be committed to caring for. The positives far outweigh the negatives. No school can be all things to all children. Shop around that is the one thing living in Sonoma County has to offer...choices.

I agree with the previous post. While the school is rated well it is not a good placement if your child needs any special education help. The school does it's best to screen out any special education kids however things due change with the demands of middle school. The switch to a public school to a charter appears to have helped the school expand but the resources are limited for kids who don't fit the normal middle school experience.

Not a good school if your child is a special education student.

I have had two sons attend Willowside and have been very pleased with their educational progress. Willowside staff are flexible, caring and all around excellent teachers. The students are also very motivated and caring. Most parents are involved and helpful. Of course, there are exceptions in all areas, as anywhere, but this school is the best and our family could not be more pleased with Willowside.

I started my kids at this school a few years ago because I had heard that it met the needs of the individuals, not the masses and I have a 'creative' learner. Not only did this school disappoint me in this arena but some of the teachers seemed unwilling to keep me informed as to my childrens progress until they were doing badly. I am frankly disappointed that they aren't more 'awards' motivated.

Willowside is an excellent middle school. The students are excited to be there, the staff is outstanding and the leadership is top notch. Students are placed according to their needs, and teachers try to differentiate the curriculum to match the students. The office staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Willowside is a comfortable, safe place where kids can grow academically and socially.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
