It is an awsome school...My son is goin' to it and even though it has 6 periods not including homeroom...It is an excellent school...If you are looking for a school this is the school to go to!
i think that the school is excellent. the teachers are very dedicated to the students well-being. the principle, not the best, but besides that it is wonderful. friendly environment. west miami is like a family and i am proud be apart of it.
The school is as good as any other school can be. I believe it is a combination of the students and teachers/administration that makes or breaks a school. I do believe that the School Board needs to make spanish classes for non-spanish speaking students available to students who are not of spanish orgin. I think we are catering to only one culture, and that is not fair.
The school is very good when it comes to the teachers. They're all experienced and easy to get along with. The school is very clean as well. The administration is pretty bad on the other hand. The principal likes to shove FCAT down the students' throats and even the teachers don't like it.
My oldest daughter just finished her last year in West Miami, and I think the school was getting worse every year. Most of everybody I spoke to agreed with me. The school should start to consider the staff that it has ,it's principal and vice-principal should reconsider wanting to help the school, or just leave and so maybe the school could have a better chance !!!!!!!!!
The school is actually a really good school, atmosphere is friendly, school is clean and the teachers have a great way of teaching. kids wear school team shirts and uniform.
I think west miami is an amazing school. It gives every child a way to express who they are. The teaching may not be soo great, but at least kids can control themselves. I think its a great school for kids to be who ever they want to be.
this school is spacious for the kids and has many classrooms. the students can get along great with other students and teachers
I believe that West Miami Middle School should be more concerned about students well-being, physically and emotionally and also get a better grip on their teaching methods. I believe that ALL students should have at least 30 minutes of outdoor physical education instead of the so-called 'spill-out'. Discipline? Also, they say other children should respect each other. So why do kids kick, trip, use bad language and get away with it? What about the classes? The good teachers are gone, and the unexperienced teachers don't know what they are doing. No wonder the school didn't do well on the FCAT as a whole in 2006-2007.
The tone and atmosphere at a school is set at the top. The dedication of a good principal trickles down. Where there is little or no leadership from the top, teachers despair and this trickles down to the students. Hopefully, a new principal at West Miami will motivate and inspire the staff which will in turn trickle down to the students. For too long teachers have felt unappreciated and students have felt they were just a number for the FCAT. We look forward to a new day at West Miami.
West Miami has many fine teachers. conditions rapidly deteriorated and a substancial number of veteran teachers retired or tranferred. New blood is necessary in any school, but West Miami lost too many of the strongest teachers in a short time. I hope conditions will improve with the new principal so students and teachers will once again look forward to a day in the classroom.
All that West Miami Cares about is the uniform and the attendence. -Julien Tuya-
West Miami is one of the worst school's that you could send your child to. The school only care about uniforms and about their attendance so that they could recieve more money.
This is one of the worst schools you could send your child to. I had to send my child there because of boundary reasons and the overall staff don't meet their job criteria.
This school is alright. The teachers are very fun with the students. I enjoyed going to this school , exept there is not much involvment with the students much & the safety is not the best.
The quality of academic programs at West Miami is excellent, might not be perfect but the teachers are great and the environment for the kids are perfect.You barely hear bad news around this school. They have a great dance and band program. Also, art is tought as an elective as well as techonolgy, wood shop etc.
This school is fair. The teachers are responsive and care about the students. However, I do not feel the level of education is as high as it aught to be.
i think this school has interesting background and that the principal shows excellent leadership. but i do believe that the school should get more bilingual teachers and should add a beginning not intermediate spanish program.
My child is in this school and the only thing the staff and teachers seem to care about is uniform.
West Miami Middle's teacher quality is extremely poor. Everyday, my child tells me that he has substitutes that teach in Spanish and sometimes refuse to speak English. I was shocked when my son told me that this incident happened in a Language Arts class!
