Wheat ridge middle is a good middle school to go to, I think the way they could improve is how they treat the students. How ever I do like that they don't have hardly any bullying, also they limit the amount of time the students are on their iPads. They work one on one, there are so many teachers there to help, if your student is failing, it's because he/she wasn't getting the work or something, and didn't ask for help. I believe that at this point it's your child's fault for failing, also if there are problems on the teachers side I apologise.

My niece went to this school and was in special ed. This school was a joke. They never sent homework home even after I asked for it. They took her on field trips without permission and then expected me to pay. My niece actually came out of that scool knowing less then when she went in and now has to be in a special program other then special ed. I would not recommend this school to ANYONE! They should close it down and fire the staff. If I could give a negative star rating I would. I wouldn't send my dog to this school. The teachers are there to get paid not teach. Oh and be careful cause they are call social services happy to.

The students swear and cuss at teachers. They don't receive any consequences. The kids don't have any respect for the staff. The staff are overworked and underpaid. They arent' aware of anything that goes on in the school until they are told, they no longer have a job.

When I attended this school from 2006-2008 I had a great time. The teachers are just awsome and they care alot about the students, students also have alot of options which is great. I was in the AVID program and it actually helped me alot in high school. The sports and after school clubs are awsome, the principal B.J Pell is the greatest. Its weiered for me to say this but I think I enjoyed my time at Wheat Ridge more than I'm enjoying high school right now. Its just a great school, its a great place to be, anyone going to middle school around the area should definetly go to Wheat Ridge Middle.

This school is awesome. I have found that the teachers at this school are very good in teaching the children in an excellent manner. Also you cannot just 'coast through these two grades' you have to work and make the grade to pass. If your not making good grades the teachers will have a meeting with you and figure out a way to get the problem solved. The principal is also very cooperative with the parents in solving problems with the children and parents.

Not a 'great' school...not a 'horrible' school. Kids can coast through these two grades really easily here, and there are little demands placed on students. Found the teachers to be, in general, fairly non-communicative.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
