Great school, amazing principle, great teachers and staff. Always there for you if you need anything.
I love my school. John Wallace is the best middle school ever. I love how the teachers and staff are always nice and help when I need the help. The principal is always nice and when he walks by me he always says hi. I like how my school has a lot of materials and we get to do a lot of fun projects.
i loveee this school! all the teachers are nice and the students are nie, and everyone just really gets each other. We have fun every day. %th grade was the BOMB, 6th grade was AMAZING, 7th grade was...eh. not my fav. and 8th grade is the best so far because everyone looks up to us and we have all the cool teachers like Mama Miller (yes we call her mama) who takes us out to eat or shopping, and Mr. Klatt, and Mrs. Armstrong and Mr. Salonia! Ohhh my gosh i can't even think about leaving the shcool or im going to start crying! ugh! i'm going to high school in 9 months! i really don't want to leavE! ever!
this is an awesome school. I just graduated from JWMS today, and i know im giong to miss it! The teachers are great, caring, and they know how to have fun! i may not be a parent but as a student i can say that this school, teachers, and memories will be with me all my life. i cant think of a better school to go to.
My 5th child entered John Wallace this year and is doing great even with his learning disabilities. The staff is very careing and understanding of his needs. The principal is outstanding and the staff is just wonderful. At my recent conference I could see in their faces how much they really liked my son and it made me feel good and safe to know he was in this school. There are so many field trips and fun things to do there. His 5th grade teacher kept the whole class after school for a pizza party and movie before their dance at the Talent Show. I still can't believe that! What dedication! I highly recommend the Newington School System.
Ummm... I am not a parent or anything but i go to this school. I love it hear and feel extremlly safe. They have tons of cool feild trips and manuy activities your child can get into. I know it is Winter vaca but I can't wait to go back. We have really nice teachers and a very cool principal. As a 7th grader we go on a trip called the Williamsburg trip where we go on a trip away from our parents for 5 days and go to these cool places like Gettisburg and Washington DC. We stay at hotels but if you wish not to send your child on this trip then they have day trips here in CT where they go to places to. It is supposedly really fun and my 8th grade and high school friends say they really enjoyed it. It really is a great school!
This school is the best school that I have ever gone to. All of the teachers are great, and I could tell that they really care about the students as people, and try there bests to help us succeed. These teachers are strict, but not too strict. They are just tough enough to keep us going on the right paths. I would not want to go to any other Middle School. I love JWMS!
I think that this school is very good with my daughter! They have a lot to offer to kids.they have spcial reading group for kids, I have been very please with this school. good luck! thank you very much
I would just want to say that this school has a lot to offer. It has a great music program and every kid dreams of being in showchoir in 8th grade which sings and dances to popular songs...the bands, other choirs, and orchestras are good too...the teachers are good and are veterans who have taught for years...great school.
This is my first year here,but it's great! They have exellent chefs. Awesome teachers. And great speical activites. Art, Music P.E. and Media are great too! I'm a sports lover so P.E. is the best.The teachers for P.E (or Gym) are exellent! I have Mr. Markie. He does fun drills with us. For art I have Mr. Gellwiler. I had in Chaffee. He knows alot about art! For music I have Mr. Begin. He great! He's funny, fun and nice at the same time. Mrs. Fanshenchelli is my Libray teacher. She's nice and a great reader. Mrs. Darter is my CPU teacher. She can type. Wow! My omeroom teacher, Miss Agana. She probably is my favorite teacher. She's really nice. She's also a great teacher. She makes everything fun. She has the best books to read for us. She's athletic so she sometimes plays with us at recess. Great School.
Hey! umm... Im not a parent or nothing but im a student of john wallace middle school and i would just like to tell you that this school is really very safe and you dont need to worry about your kids getting bulleyed or anything because we dont really have any problems with bulleying and a couple of kids that do have a special program to help them. I think the teachers are really nice and they're the best teachers anyone could ever have. They teach you lots of stuff and its all in a fun way not like 'you have to memorize this or you get a detention!' i love this school. Im in 8th grade right now and i don't feel like going to high school because this school is just awesome! there are lots of really cool and educational feild trips too. Thats all. Sania ahmad! =)
Hi. I'm not a parent, but I do attend John Wallace Middle School right now. This school is wonderful! If you are worried about your 5th grader being mixed in with the older kids you're in luck because the 5th graders have their own separate wing from the older children. Wallace also has many activities to keep your children going. We have tons of different clubs and we have 4 different bands, 2 different orchestras, and 6 different choirs. Our school is also very very very very safe. Just this summer they installed security cameras at the front doors and TV's in the office. We also keep all the doors locked outside the school. The teachers at John Wallace Middle School are the best you'll ever get. I don't know one teacher that's mean here. Current Student, Natalie Battistone
