Wooster is a school that helps children and makes them smarter then they ever thought they could be. the teachers really care and try there best to support and help their students to the best that they can be. Wooster only has the best teachers in the business, and Wooster makes sure no matter what every adult makes sure every child is safe, because they know they would want the same for their children. I like that we have steps to teach the kids to calm down, and teach them right from wrong, like step one is sit, step two is stand, step three is read the rules, step four is in school suspension, and step five is out of school suspension.

My sister went to Wooster and loved it. She claimed it was the best few years of her life. I, on the other hand, am currently in eighth grade at Wooster and I'm begging my mom to send me off to private school. All of my teachers either don't teach, are way too strict and mean, or assign way too many tests and homework assignments. I am absolutely miserable. I know I am in the honors program but sometimes I have so much homework I stay up past midnight and never have time to do anything else besides studying. In addition to the teachers, I do not think the student body as a whole shows respect for the school. I do not like to walk down the hallways and see fist fights and hear people shout swear words. I know there is nothing we can do about that, but it really makes me feel uncomfortable. I can't wait to go to high school.

I love wooster middle school. Although we have make your day it's ok. If your child was doing the right thing she or he wouldn't have to worry out getting steps or not making their day. I do reccomend this school because its in a nice location and your child can stayvout of trouble here.

I Love Going To Wooster But some Of The Teachers Are A Little Discouraging Though, But Some Go Out Of Their Way To Help Us Achieve New Heights Related To Academics. The Step/Make Your Day Program Is Not As Bad As They Make It Out To Be, Yet, It Does Take Off SOME Classtime. I Would Rate This 4 Out Of 5 Stars. (: 7th Grade, Cougar.

In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
