I was a student once upon a time. That was four years ago as I am now graduating high school. I would like to say that some of the teachers really impacted my life in a positive way. So greatly that I shall never forget. As of the students and schooling environment to this day I can't speak of.
This school is horrible. There's constant bullying, trouble makers, & kids skipping classes, getting detention, & suspension. It's a terrible place for education. My daughter got into a fight with one girl that the other girl started, so they suspended my daughter instead, who was the victim, which wasn't fair. The teachers are awful too. & the kids are careless, constantly running in the halls & pushing people & bumping into them, & knocking there stuff over without even saying sorry or helping pick it up. WORST SCHOOL EVER. If u want a good education for ur kids, I don't suggest u go here!
wallace is the most ghettos school in waterbury ct. alot of girls are pregnant and ppl smoke weed in the bathroom and teachers dont know
I love this school. my daughter was accepted into the Accelerated Program for 6 th grade and she loved it. Unfortunately, due to circumstances, we had to move and are now in Norwich. But, I just got some great news that is allowing me to come back to Waterbury and i am looking for a place in the Wallace School District. i will not get a place unless she gets to go there, so i am looking only in the East End. She was in Yeshion House and they are a great bunch of teachers, very personable and seem to know each child so well.
Good school with great staff that care for students. Mr. Jack Yeshion is a great house principal.
I am a current student at the school and I think it is a decent but not great school. it has some work that needs to be done. For example some classrooms have been split in half with a divider just to make another classroom. So instead of one normal sized room there are two smaller rooms. However the teachers and support staff are great at the job, especially the principals. They should keep up the good work. Overall Wallace is an all right school.
I love it there my child also loves it there and he is in 7th grade and really lon=ves it there also the teachers are so nice and genorous
I must say that this school has offered my children a wonderful learning experience. As with all schools, you get what you put into it. Students who come to school to fool around and get into trouble will get just that, while students who come to behave and learn will get a good education. The principal, Dr. Padua, is top notch. He has the best interest of the children in his mind at all times and pushes the staff to teach to the best of their ability.
Michael F. Wallace middle School in Waterbury CT. is the most wonderful school. Sometimes the teachers are harsh but they do it for the children at that school.I went to that school in 2000 it was awsome. Now and then I come vist W.M.S. Wallace middle School and it seems awsome to me. Good field trips like Holiday Hill which the 6th graders at that school are going this year and will have a great time. The Wonderful principal Luis A. Padua is awsome good discipline courage to the children. And also the kids get to have lots of fun there. Thats the important part of W.M.S. Wallace middle School. Also it is clean and te lunch is pretty good ands healthy. And kids get to have fun in excersise, the gym teacher takes them outside they run play any sport.
I went to this school a few years ago. I must say it was the worst experience of my life. I was constantly bullied and the staff did NOTHING about it. There were Extracurricular activites, but made the schedule seem rather tense. SOME of the teachers were rather rude in their attempt to cause some sort of 'welcoming' into the school. I got out alive and lucky, somebody might not in the future.
