When the staff lies and makes excuses, it encourages the same behavior from the students.

Watson is TERRIBLE!! Teachers can pick up students personal objects and throw them across the room and nothing gets done about it, students get threats from other students saying they are going to kill them and the staff takes their time in taking care of the issue, other parents use the bus lanes to drop off kids all the time nothing is said to them, but, you get talk to about not using it. The assistant principal responds with about the teacher throwing personal belongings with " well she never acted like that with my kids." does not take common sense to see of course she would not treat your kids like that, your her boss. This school is just Terrible!

No complaints at all from my kids. In fact they loved it so much here, they would like to come back!! The teachers are great, caring and attentive to student needs. My kids always had positive comments about their math and social studies teachers, they actually had FUN while learning! Teachers and administrative staff are always open to meeting with parents and legal guardians.

Depends on the subject taught and teacher structure of classroom. Some teachers have years of experience and know what works for some students and what doesn't. Their passion for teaching and working with a diverse population is apparent, while others don't.

Watson Junior High is an AMAZING school. Parent or gaurdian of a student take a chance and bring them to Watson. Teachers make the classes fun and some students might say ''I hate school'' or ''This is boring''. I am a student and the staff is very nice and caring. Electives are very fun and there is so much to choose from. Come to Watson and you will see yourself.
