WMS is a great school, my daughter is going into the 8th grade and she is also in the top level..She learns a lot from school. The teachers there are wonderful and very caring. My daughter will be well prepared when she will be going into high school..My oldest daughter went to WMS too and she also loved it, she is a special needs kid, that is a plus for WMS to take care of all her needs. It is the best school around love it.

I myself am a student at WMS and i am going in to 7th grade. My first year at Washington was great! I learned alot from all my teachers, and they also made it fun to learn. Also, a special thanks to Mr.Rinaldi, a science teacher from cluster 7 and all the teachers of Washington. I was so scared on my first day of middle school, but all the students and teachers made it ok.

My older son likes Washington better than Edison because they have great Instrumental Music class. He got excellent grades in several subjects. When he went to Edison when it was opened, he wasn't happy with it. Washington have marching band, and concert. Edison don't. Washington Cafe is not as good as Edison. My daughter only likes Edison's cafe, and her classmates. Now my younger son is in 6th grade at Washington.
