Teachers are dedicated professionals. Front office staff is well organized, knowledgeable but a bit stiff. The principal is new and lacks the leadership of her predecessor. Cafeteria lacks salad bar and healthier options. Students are diversified and good learners. There is a good sense of order and great parent involvement. This is over all a good school.

This school is a blue ribbon school. I do not know what these poor comments but i do hope these parents have a change of opinion!

I teach at a local elementary school. I have two children at WBMS. One is in tag and the other is not. They get their homework completed, and are not discipline problems in the classroom. They both receive above average academic instruction from the teachers. I think school is what you and your children put into it. We support the teachers, and our children are both happy and love school. I would not want to have our children attend any other middle school!!

This is an amazing school. It has won the Blue Ribbon Award, which is the highest honor a school can receive. The principal is amazing, she won the national principal of the year award. The princpal is very involved and loves to talk and interact with students. She is never grumpy, always smiling. It is very sad that she is retiring. She will very much be missed. I wouldn't want to go to any other school.

Great school, excellent teachers, and my child is not in TAG. However, there does seem to be a lot of bullying that is going on in the school hallways. I hope it is being addressed, but the kids don'e seem to think it is.

My daughter goes to Webb Bridge and she says she has a blast. The staff is dedicated, trust-worthy, and hard working. This school is simply amazing. I wouldn't want my child going anywhere else.

I agree with STRONG discipline. NO question about it. IMHO, it's the number one reason the schools are out of control everywhere. To talk back to my teacher, let alone anything more, was simply incomprehensible. However, WBMS is not perfect. Far, far from it. It's a very 'politically correct' environment where certain situations are tolerated. If your kid is a TAG student, I applaud you and of course, your child. If you child, however, is a special ed kid, be prepared to battle with Fulton County and the school(s) in general for any help that you may need. It will not generally be offered. After all, they do have to move the masses through no matter the cost. Bullying is somewhat routine in schools and if your child has to endure it, get on it QUICKLY and start to document the problem. I had several children that endured it their entire tenure.

Overall Webb Bridge is a great school, one of the top in the state. I am a parent at this school and teach at a different school. My child loves most of her teachers. The only issue I have with Webb Bridge is the principal. What has been stated on the reviews is true. As a parent I wish she would leave, as a teacher I would not work for her. TAG is open to each student based on test scores and classroom grades for each subject--not the same as at the elementary level. I would like to see teachers be more on top of hurtful student behavior that comes along in middle school.

In response to some of the people who have said that Webb Bridge is an awful school and that their children do not deserve detentions, or that the teachers are horrible, or that the TAG students are the only ones that matter, I have some news. I am a TAG student, and I love Webb Bridge. Most of my teachers are good at what they do and experienced. If you don't think your child is getting the attention he/she deserves and that he/she is struggling because if it, your child needs to work harder. Maybe it's their fault, not the teachers'. The reason the discipline seems so 'strict' is because there are some children who need discipline. Detentions are given out to teach lessons, and if children could turn homework in on time and follow instructions, they would not receive them. Maybe it's the students that are bad, not the school.

My kids are in Webb Bridge now and I wish I had the opportunity to read these reviews prior to moving into this school district from Michigan. I agree 100% that this school is only out to nuture the TAG students and does not recognize kids who have the equivalent potential or maybe even greater strenghts than the so called 'TAG' students . The fairness or the lack thereof of the whole TAG selection process is questionable. The Principal is downright rude and actually insulted us in a face to face meeting in the presence of others . It does appear to me that kids are picked and then 'worked on ' to be then labeled as gifted--- yes you guessed right TAG!! Discipline is another sore point at Webb Bridge, both in the school campus and on the buses. The teachers largely do not seem to believe in constructive criticism of students.

I had 2 daughters attend Webb Bridge. We have since moved out of state, and would give anything to be back at Webb Bridge. My daughters received a far superior education at Webb Bridge as compared to other schools - we have moved frequently. Too many schools are concerned with scores. They concentrate on bringing underacheiving students up to grade level. In the meantime, the better students are bored. Not only was the curriculum challenging and excellent preparation for high school, but the school also offered wondeful extra-curricular opportunities.

I would have to agree with the negative reviews on here. There seems to be a pattern here and where there's smoke there is fire. I blame the problems with the principle because she sets to tone for the school. It shows in the teachers attittudes and compared to alpharetta high this school is a big disappointment.

This school is a big disappointment. We have found the principal to be cold and arrogant. Administration is more interested in how fast they can execute a fire drill then the quality of the learning environment. Maybe If your child is a TAG student ,or has a behavioral problem this school would be a good place. Our child that tries hard, is average to good academically, and is a bit shy. Over the past three years we have had to employ tutors and had to in the evening to fill in educational gaps.

My daughter is in 6th grade. Webb Bridge did a poor job of transtioning the kids from elementary school to middle school. All they did was scare them with the rules. They were not nurturing. I think the problem is administration more than the teachers.

Webb Bridge seems to struggle with the growth in North Fulton County. Counselors and assistant principals are new and are not clear with communication or resolving conflict with learning and teacher performance. The last several years both of our children have seen the results of leadership positions being filled by warm bodies versus talent.

We moved here from Virginia last August and my son started 6th grade at Webb Bridge. He is very unhappy at the school. Discipline seems to be an issue. Either over or under disciplining. The principal and school in general seem to cater to TAG and getting awards. The majority of the teachers don't seem to really care about the child as an individual. It is an ok school but if my older son had not wanted to attend Alpharetta High School ( which is great) I would not have chosen to live in the Webb Bridge catchment area.

I have a daughter that attended Webb Bridge and is now a sophmore at Alpharetta High School. She did very well in Webb Bridge and was well prepared for high school. I had absolutely no problems at Webb Bridge whatsoever. I have a son there in the 7th grade and he is doing extremely well, very successful and I believe he will also be very well prepared for AHS. I have been extremely happy with Webb Bridge and my children were/are well adapated students there.

My son just started at this school and I'm already concerned! It seems, to me ,that the teachers are more concerned with petty issues and exerting their power over the student than what's important:Teaching. My son, who has never had Dentention, received it at this school for not having a book cover! Wasn't Detention meant as a disciplinary action?

I can't speak to the 'non-tag' classes, but the kids in tag (about 20% of the students) get an extraordinary education equal or better than that offered at the top private schools in Atlanta. We took our daughter out of one of those 'elite' schools and had to have her tutored for two years to catch up to the highest level offered at Webb Bridge. A very special school for highly motivated kids.

If you child is not in the TAG program, forget it. The balance of students have large classes and little opportunity for individual assistance. The principal is, in my estimation, unconcerned with your personal complaints and ideas. It's too bad. The children from this area are especially bright and agressive learners. Children from each learning group should have equal attention and opportunity.

I have to agree with one of the other review's that Webb Bridge does teach to test scores. They also have so much to get in and if the kids don't get it, sorry they move on. I do like help sessions they offer before or after school. The TAG children do have have a lower class size. The children that have problems or on grade level classes should have the lower class size. I think the on grade level math curriculum needs to be changed especially in 6th grade. There is too big of a gap between 5th and 6th grade math. Maybe the 5th grade math should be a little harder so the gap is not so large. The homework at times is crazy. One night the homework is 3-4 hours and the next night none. I would rate the school as a middle of the road school nationwide.

Webb Bridge Strives too much for having a school of excellence and therefore forgets about its students! It seems like teachers and staff have too much fun punishing them then teaching them. I have not met one student that liked that school. And the staff not only gives hard times to the students but also to the parents. They have never done anything to help my child, she struggles and they say try harder. The dress code is unbelievable. I mean dont be so hard on them they are teens let them do whate they want. And the principal is just about the worst principal i have ever seen and trust me I have dealt with many. All she cares about is how she looks not the students not the school just her. And the assitant principals are just as bad. The only good one is Mr.Frasier. He cares.

Webb Bridge is a good school but I have had extremely bad and inexperienced teachers for math in the last 2 years! These teachers I felt were in competetion and never taught the class well-they spent too much time trying to get ahead then explaining the lessons. Of course the best teacher I ever had was Mrs. Garvey for science in 7th and 8th grade! She was a fabulous teacher who taught very well!

Webb Bridge Middle School is primarily focused on SAT scores and students who are in TAG programs. These children are in classes with fewer students. This school should allow non-TAG students a greater learning environment. Teachers [are not] available for extra help except the required 1 day per week. The math program could be improved. Teachers compete with each other to keep their classes at or ahead of the other math classes. These teachers do not spend enough time teaching the subject, but have demands to move forward to other areas and to test students when they do not know the subject. Substitute teachers do not teach the subject in the teacher absence.
