This is a very good school. I don't think the principals are hard enough for this age group. I wish the 7th grade principal wouldn't have left but hey, I'm glad she moved up! I wish we had more principals like her. My son said that they have had five fights this year, last year I know with the old 7th grade principal; they didn't have any fights.

I'm a student at worth middle county school. The school itself is good. Although the principal of 7th grade was very, very rude. She left the middle school and now is at the elementary school. Sports at the middle school are average. Football and Basketball are the two best sports at our school. This is coming from a W.C.M.S baseball player too. I'm not saying our baseball team isn't good, because we are, i'm just saying that the other two sports might be a little better.
