Well I have had the pleasure of 3 different schools systems and I can't really say this one is that much different. They are ahead in technology but... It really depends on the parents and expectations. I think the school has a low opinion of parents and lack high expectations. The language the my kids are constantly hearing starting from the morning trip to, to the trip home. But that's where I blame the parents you want a better school than have higher expectations for yourselves and the school. Maybe things would change but until you have standards of your own down expect the school to. After all the apple falls from the tree that created it.... hummm

Lamar Barnes is sadly one of the most unprofessional administrators I have encountered. He is more interested in hearing himself whine about how many students and parents he has to interact with and the daily demands of his job rather than listening to the parent and engaging in the matter at hand. He is rude and condescending. There are a few great teachers and staff members at this school, how they manage to stay under the administrator's self-centered leadership and complete lack of vision is a testament to their dedication to the students. Yet, there are some instructors who seem to "get away" with behaviors which are inappropriate such as texting during open house and making parents wait until the teacher is done e-socializing, or texting during parent-teacher conferences. His leadership explains why these other unprofessional behaviors are ongoing in this school. I imagine this must be a highly dysfunctional work environment. Schools are about education, the learning process, and the students - when you are more concerned with yourself than your staff and students, it is time to embark upon another profession. WMS would be a better place with some professional leadership.

If they had a negative than I would click on that! This is the worst school my child has ever been in and I plan on moving just to get him a better school!! He is being picked and harassed by other kids and comes home crying. You call the school and they could give a crap less! There is ZERO communication as others have stated! I have called and wrote numerous notes and no response EVER! PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR KIDS TO GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! This school is a joke and that's extremely sad!

Two of my children attended Woodland MS and overall the school has a lot of offer. The band program is one of the best around, clubs and sports for everyone. Both were in the gifted program and were not challenged due to the disruption from the students in the classrooms (including the 'gifted' ones). We moved out of county due to work, and what a difference behavior makes as to what can be done in the classroom. Its the ill-behaved students (a direct reflection on their upbringing by parents) that is the probelm at this school, not the teachers or staff. The principal is wonderful and cuts the apron strings, making the kids be responsible for themselves, preparing them for HS and college. Again, its some of the students that are attending here that are making it hard for the teachers and students to teach and learn.

My son has been at WMSE for 3 years. I have never had a problem with the teaching staff returning calls, or discussing my sons progress with me. I think in middle school the students are being prepared for high school by having to take responsibility instead of relying on the parents so much. I have students from other middle schools say that WMSE is too strict. I think that makes for a better, more mature highschooler. That is how I think school should be

I have had 4 of my kids in this school. The good teaching teams out weigh any short falls the overall program may have. Kids in general are given the benifit of the doubt and met equally at the table for any issues that my surface education wise or otherwise.

I have to agree with the comments of other partents. Teacher don't care if our children learn or not. They are not willing to put out the extra effort on students that need more help. It's either swim or sink, not their problem. iParent is not kept up to date. If there is a problem the parents are not contacted, it's up to us to request a meeting. Once again, the teacher doesn't seemed to be interested if the student is catching on or not. No child left behind, what a joke.

My son has been a student at woodland middle for 2 years. He is an a student and is in the a.P. Classes (where available). I suppose my biggest beef with wmse is teacher response. We as parents are told endlessly that we must do our jobs in raising our children and that the teachers will do their part to help educate them. Great... I'm on board with that. However, when i call and leave a detailed message for a teacher, or write a note requesting a phone call, i expect to get a phone call. Not a message spoken to my child to 'tell your mother'. That does not fly in the business world and should not fly with the faculty of our schools. You have a parent who is interested in their kid... Are you?

I,for the most part,have am very pleased with what goes on at WMSE. I have had great experiences when dealing with both the staff & upper managment at WMSE. My daughter is in the Gateway Program, makes straight A's and is a star athlete at the school. I realize it is my job as a responsible parent to keep up with my child, and those parents who don't take those few minutes to check homework or even ask their children questions are usually the first to complain when they fall behind. I do however agree that our children should each have their own set of books to keep in lockers and bring home if needed, but this is not WMSE fault, it's the system! Just ask around, you'll see how many other schools have no text books as well! Instead of complaining we should be asking: 'How can I help?!'

This school is lacking so much. Teachers who don't care & don't want to be there. Gifted students are left to teach themselves in the back of the class. There is NO and I mean NO communications between parents & staff. Parents are never given the opportunity to get involved. I've signed up for anything & everything at the beginning of each school year. I've never been contacted. My sons teachers have never spoken with me after the first day of school. Teachers do not keep up with iparent. You think your child has an A then 1 day later a teacher will put in 5 grades & he has a C. No child left behind is hurting our schools.

I am totally amazed by the fact that neither my son or daughter have had their own books while attending this school. There is 1 set of books for the classroom only! The teachers do not communicate with the parents, when a student misses work, until mid-term grades or report cards. The online tool i-Parent is never updated to reflect what the student has done till after the fact. As a single parent and father, I am amazed at how the educational system even works today!

In response to several negative comments posted on this website about this school, as a parent, i would like to say that i have had nothing but positive experiences with both faculty and staff. I realize that when i get home from working a full day that it is my responsibility to raise my child and not rely on teachers to do it. The 'principal' (not principle) is a good man with only the students' best interest at heart. I have had one child go through woodland, and i am looking forward to my youngest child being there.

As a parent of a student at Woodland Middle School, for the last 2 years, I can honestly say that there is no wonder that this county's students are so far behind other countries academically. There is no communication between parents and faculty, between teachers and parents, or upper faculty and students. What happened to the teachers who actually cared that the students progress reflected their ability to teach, and actually cared about doing a good job and producing a productive member of society, or at least doing their part in that productive member of society. Parents are expected to work all day to pay the salaries/State and County taxes of these citizens, and then come home and do the job the teacher did not do at school that day. They do not return homework, test papers, and when the students ask for their papers, they're blown off.

As a gifted student at WMSE some fellow gifted students and I feel that we should be challenged. We should not sit in the back of a room and not pay attention and make A's. We should have to work for an A. We feel that we should be put in a seperate classes that offer a more challenging curriculum. I am not a nerd I am also a student athlete.

I think this school is a discrace to this country! Most teachers are disrespectful to students and parents! We deserve the right amount of respect!The coaches are unfair, the teachers are just there, and the princilpe has no leadership at all!

I agree 100% with you about the leadership at this school. After numerous times of wanting to speak with the principle regarding what I thought was important obviously was not as important to the facilty or administrative staff. I found myself more often than not sitting in the office without appointments to 'make' myself heard by the principle. Only to learn that I would be simply blown off and not taken seriously. I also feel that these children should be getting ready for high school but instead are reverting back to elementary school behavior. As a direct result of the childish ways they are treated by the teachers and staff. Re-train these teachers and most of all the upper management. school students. In my opinion the school needs some brushing up on the care and concern of the students, I was so glad when my two children started Woodland High.

This school is lacking Leadership. The principle here is NOT parent friendly. He is very closed minded when you have a problem. The parents try to be involved but are brushed off. You are asked to make an appointment to come to the school, you do not feel comforable popping in and are not allowed to eat in the lunch room with your child if you brought outside food. If the children ask to use the restroom & used their 'restroom pass' earlier, they are put on silent lunch. During 'that time of month', I have had to leave work to bring my daughter a change of clothes twice already. Many of my daughters friends are pulling out of the Gateway program due to the lack of leadership at this school.
