Unfortunately, in our society the three Rs are not the most important issue in our schools. The teachers are not the most important part of our children's education. The first and most important item in our schools must be security and safety of our children. Principal Robert Hatcher, Officer Jose Cuellar, and the rest of the school staff perform an excellent job in keeping our children safe and secure. I thank you one and all for the job they have done while my child has spent 3 great years at the school.

After spending 3 years in Western PInes, I had a terrible experience. With clear backpacks and strict uniforms, we never had any freedoms. The assistant principal gives detentions for no reason. They waste weeks focusing on the FCAT. Trust me, don't go here...

WPMS is still using portables, which, if you are late from one part of the school to a portable on the other side on a day with severe thunderstorms, and a flooded path, you get detention. They supposedly focus on bullying, yet it happens everyday. If a bullied kid says something back to the bully, he/she gets detention. Only thing taught here is hypocrisy and how to take the FCAT, though this seems to be par for all of Florida. If you really need to teach a kid how to pass a test, teach them the knowledge to do more than just pass a standardized test, but how to succeed in life.

Both my kids go to this school. I think it is a great school. The principal is very committed. The kids are getting an great education. I like the use of edline. It is a tight knit community and most of the kids are well behaved. Sometimes the teachers are too busy to pay attention to the kids and they are very strict with the homework policy.

Western Pines is a good school if you want your child to get a good education, but they aren't too many electives . If you have an artistic child you might want to send them to a different school because my school doesn't even provide an art class. But there are great teachers at the school. and next school year we will be having uniforms so depending on your opinion it could be good or bad. but i would prefer to go to oceola creek middle school because i hear they offer a lot more electives.
