My son attended this school and started to get into trouble all the time. I was disciplining him for months until I realized, he was being suspended for talking in class and other minor classroom infractions. I tried to reason with the principle aflter he had been suspended from school at least 3 times for minor infractions, but he would hear none of it. PARENTS BEWARE if your kid falls to the dislikes of the principle or teachers there is no getting back into there good graces. I took my son out of that school and now his grades are up and he hasn't been in trouble once at the new school. THIS SCHOOL HAS A BULLY PROBLEM AND IT IS NOT WITH THE KIDS! ITS WITH THE PRINCIPLE AND TEACHERS! How was my son expected to get good grades when he was being suspended for talking in class or tapping his foot to the beat in music classs! Yes thats right he was suspended for tapping his foot to the beat in music class! I plan to take this to the super attendent because the principle would not listen, but I hope you will!!

Two stars is about all I can give at this point. I hope my son has a more prosperous year in 7th grade. Hopefully he will have a more mind stimulating experience and get into trouble less....

This school is old and cannot handle the growth of the community. The teaching staff is exeptional, but everything else could use and upgrade and expansion.

Waterford Middle School needs some major improvements in many areas. I have experienced first hand the poor leadership and communication skills that are attributted with this institution.

Last year was my child's first year at Waterford Middle School and I was not happy with the way they do report cards. They only have one parent / teacher conference and mail all the others w/out any conference. They say to contact the teacher for any questions but it is very hard getting them to call back. I hope this year is better.
