This is an very good school with great teachers. The administration is easy to work with and does what it best for the kids. This school has great test scores and treats every with respect. I have been pleased with my child's education here. Great school!

Allowed my child to go here, but seeking out new school options for his future. Administration is horrible. If you want a great education for your child look elsewhere. The biggest plus they offer is the "extras " they get for being a title 1 school. It would be beneficial for them to focus on the students not a few extra computers. The principal likes to bark about the dress code but doesn't even follow it herself!

Do your research before sending your child here. The principal is on some sort of ego trip and could care less about the children. The teachers are hit or miss. The sports are average. Could be a much better school if they had leadership that worked with parents.

The kids, parents, and teachers at WHMS are awesome! You have to do your part as a parent and get involved. If you have a question, ask the teachers. There is a place for every child to exceed and succeed at WHMS.

This school is goo. I get a good education and they offer many great classes. They even offer High school Credit Classes when you get into 8th grade such as Art, Spanish, Math 1, Physical Science, Language Arts, and Computer Applications. There are not alot of perks at this school but you can get a good education if you actually try rather than not.

This school has just been named the Georgia School of Character for 2009! The students wear uniforms and are ready to learn each day instead of comparing name brands of clothing. They follow rules of character and a character tree is in their main hall. The school is committed to excellence and I feel the best in the area.

I am substitute teaching at the moment and I love West Hall. Everyone on the staff tries to help you. I think that everyone is top notch. The students aren't perfect, but they are by far the best I have encountered.

My son had an excellent experience at this school. The principal is the best that I have encountered in the 10 years my children have been going to school. The dress code is simple and enables the kids to focus on everything else without worrying about what to wear everyday and fitting in. My son was able to learn and grow in a great environment. Kids in this age group need boundaries. If boundaries are not maintained, you end up with chaos. I also noticed that Dr Justus listens to what parents and students say and does what it takes to always improve the quality of education her students receive.

This is a great school! The academics for advanced students is AMAZING! The teachers are terrific! The 8th grade Beta Club goes to DC every year and it's a blast for the students. West Hall is truely an amazing school. I wouldn't ever want to work or attend any other school except this one!

This school focusses way to much on the dress code. My child says she cant even layer her shirts! Most of the teachers focuss way to much on dress code, and not enough on education.

The school overall is good parental involvement,not so great! I would agree there is too much focus on dress code! The principal and teachers do care and try and help when they can.

The acedimics are to easy. They don't chalange the children enough. They are letting to many kids into the advanced classes in high school and cause many of those classes to over populate. They can NEVER keep a band director. They have NO drama department. And the Children who want to be in plays have to go to the high school. They can't be in a play in their school because they have no drama department.

I find that the school spends more time trying to police the kids rather than provide a quality education

I am struggling w/this school. My son is in 8th grade and the teachers are giving my son misinformation-talking down to the students. I had a question about the uniform and I still do not have a definite answer. They cannot go to their lockers after 7th pd so my son has to bring his book home everyday for the last class, and he has only a few min. before 7th pd to get all the books he needs for homework. He brought home 3 books last night and he still forgot one of his books. That is a heavy load for a 13-year-old. I could hardly carry his backpack. Things make little sense there.
