Snobs! the principal is by far the worst ever! Some of the teachers are rude if your child needs a little help you can forget it! They are ignored, I am looking to taking my son out of this snobby school.

WCI is a great school. I have 2 children at this school who are both completely different learners. When we needed to make a schedule change they made it a simple process and it was done immediately. The teachers and counselors are very accessible. The ability of the school to work with different types of students and learners is a testament to a great school!

I hate this school. The teachers are horrible, selfish, and rude. The students are bullies. As a parent, I never was notified about ANYTHING going on at the school. The administration never cared about any of my concerns, and I never got any responses from them after emailing them. Bullies never get in trouble because the staff doesn't care .And most of all the parents weren't involved at all. Sending my child here was a big mistake. With the lack of classes, supporting teachers, help, and their horrible teaching techniques my child didn't accomplish to her full potential here, at WCI .

WCI is the best school. The teachers are VERY nice, and principals too especially Kevin Honey. I'm about to finish eighth grade, and from my first day here i loved it.

My daughter is in 6th grade and she is loving this school. She came from a small private school so it was an adjustment to a large public school but so far everything has been great. The school has a lot of extra activities for the kids (sports, band, drama, glee club, etc) and they have a great after school youth center for working parents.

This school is great so far. By that I mean we recently moved to Walnut Creek form San Francisco where my son attended Highland Christin School. At this point my son loves the school, teachers, and staff. The back to school night was very informative and all the teachers have one goal of improving your childs learning. My wife wishes we had moved years ago!

I love WCI, i think it is the best middle school in walnut creek and the teachers are great there they really make learning fun. foothill middle school is not in a friendly enviorment most of my cousins that live in Concord have gone there and said that some 7th graders have been smoking there doing sexual stuff and cussing alot, and besides the Mt. Daiblo school district has lost a lot of teachers and has not raised a lot of money. i really recommend that you should send your children to the Walnut Creek School District (WCSD).

After sending two children through this school I must say I am thoroughly disappointed with the teaching staff on the whole. Voters have approved each and every bond measure to improve the situation, yet teachers seem to be in punishment mode, bemoaning the number of students they've been saddled with each year. I have had teachers ignore emails altogether with no explanation, or in better scenarios, I receive one lined responses that do not answer my most basic questions. Teachers direct parents and students to the website for homework assignments, yet many times there is no relevant info there. Each teacher uses the site differently, so we're expected to adapt to each one's way of doing things. If it takes a village to raise a child, this village has been deserted. As a parent who attempts to be involved and helpful - what more can one do? I should have home schooled.

WCI is a fantastic learning environment. My son's STAR scores are up 20 points over 5th grade in Concord. I moved to WC to get him in WCI and now my daughter is at Walnut Heights, too. Every time I am on campus, the students are helpful and very friendly. The teachers respond quickly by email and are more than wiling to provide progress reports whenever I ask. This is a great way to stay on top of your child's grades and all his teachers have suggested that all parents stay this informed. The parents here do a lot too, me included.

I've worked as a substitute teacher through out Contra Costa County over the past 5 years and Walnut Creek Intermediate is the best. The special education program is superb! This school does an excellent job at reaching diverse learners from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. This is a very balanced school and a fun place to teach.

This school has very poor oversight of children who are non-standard. My experience is that students who need any kind of help are not given it; that instead, they are blamed when they need assistance. I asked for help, and was not given it. As a result, my child suffered.

Walnut Creek Intermediate is a Great School and remains Great even in tough financial times! WCI is excellent at preparing students to enter high school, but even more importantly WCI is wonderful at teaching our kids to be productive and kind citizens focusing on respect and inclusion of all diversity! Go WCI!!!

I concur that while WCI is generallly a very good school, it does not provide sufficient challenge the brightest students and the teaching is aimed at the average student

My daughter just graduated from WCI and she had a wonderful experience there with very few exceptions. Now my youngest will be attending this year and she is already excited about attending the school her sister talked so highly about.

Our son is finishing up his first year at WCI. He enjoys attending the school and we're very happy with the academics and extracurricular activities. Parent involvement is very high and the school has recently completed impressive renovations of its library and other facilities.

Good overall middle school but bright kids do not get challenged enough. Teachers are teaching towards the average kid.

I subbed in this school for a year. I taught in all the grades in a variety of subjects. This school has quality academic programs. The school environment is very safe, positive, friendly, and cooperative. The students are very well behaved and classrooms are well managed. I never had any discipline problems, unlike in other middle schools I have subbed in.

This school year has been a year of transition with new administrative leadership. Students seem to be repsonding positively to the new prinicipal and vice principal. The quality of instruction can vary widely within a department. Some classes rely on lecture and note-taking for instruction while others are more interactive and require more critical thinking. The electives selection is broad and extracurricular activities (mostly sports) are available. As with many schools, there is a small group of incredibly active parents, a larger group of supportive parents, and a percentage of parents who do not participate in school acitivities. Overall, the school provides a 'B' program. I do think that they continually actively try to evaluate their programs and performance to improve the school experience for students.

My both kids attended this school starting with seventh grade. Limited vaiety of math classes was one of the biggest concern. I mean, they do not have Geometry neither Advanced Algebra. The quality of teaching is very uneven. There are some great teachers and, at the same time, some the most uncooprative teachers I ever knew. The ratio is 1:4.

Overral, Walnut Creek Intermediate is a good school. There are many after school sports programs avaliable. Tenis, golf, track,and soccer are all coed. While in volleyball and basketball males and females are on different teams. This school has a big GYM, but it does not have a pool. The level of parent envolvement is probably high, they help the school a lot. There is also an activity called PRIDE in this school. Every Wednesday students' 6th period teachers talk to students about being better citizens. Most teachers are liked by students and have good teaching skills.

Great variety of teachers - many who are quite dedicated. Quality of the academic programs is acceptable - you get what you put in. Not a great variety of extracurricular activities - that my son was interested in at least. While I was not personally involved in the school, I knew many parents who were.
