wms is a good school. You can get a good education, if you try. Me coming from a very strict family that demanded straight A's I did very good in school. The teachers will challenge you only if you want it. If you don't they won't waste their time on you. I think everyone's favorite part is the trips like in 6th grade Camp Timberlee, 7th grade Springfield and 8th grade Washington D.C. Band has overnight trips for two years and one year is just a one day. And chamber and chorus and show choir also go on trips with and without the band like to Yorktown mall for charoling and the zoo. This year for chamber we went to a Chicago Wolves hockey game and sang at the beginning at our seats which were front row and on the jumbotron! Our family and friends could come and it was amazing. Also this year wms is allowing phones in class that you can use only with the teachers permission. We also have amazing dances that the student council plans that we elect at the end of the year and it is always successful. We have spirit weeks where we have things like pajama day and sports day or crazy hat or socks day. We also have twin day which is my personal favorite. You can also join sports when you're in 7th grade but anyone can join band, chorus, chamber, show choir, jazz band, intramurals, art club and yearbook. There are sports for both genders like volleyball, softball, basketball, and girls cheer and dance. For academic purposes you can be in mathletes and junior honor society which I have been in for my 3 years. I am also in volleyball, chamber, chorus, jazz band, band, cheer, mathletes and national junior honor society. Many kids are very welcoming and it will be so emotional to say goodbye in June.
