This school has some good teachers, and some not so good. As with any school, parents have to be involved in their child's academic and social lives. This school does have lots of cliques, and bullying is present, but not necessarily prevalent. However, there are some groups that prey on the timid. Communication with your child and with your child's teachers on a regular basis is always recommended. Let the teacher's know you are invested in your child's education. If you do not have an open line of communication with them, talk to the administration.

The worst experience of my childs and my life. Do not recommend this school. If your child is there on a special transfer or you just moved into the neighborhood. You will not fit in. In fact, your child will have a huge Red Target on his back by students and staff. I had to get my child out of there before she fell any further into a depression. BEWARE!

This will be our last year at Wilbur. Both of my children have attended this school and I have really no complaints. No school is perfect but this one has been great! My children maintained good grades, scored well on tests and enjoyed the extra curricular activities. Staff is highly involved with the students. Most of them communicate well with parents. They do not tolerate bullying and abide by the D/F list policy on after school activities. I would recommend this school.

I was once in this so called school. I can't believe how awful the teachers are. Some teachers know how to learn and have fun but in my grade(which was 7th) there was only one. Besides the teachers the kids are horrible. The kids don't ever do there work and when they do they complain about it and want to watch a movie instead. They bring out there phones in class and take pictures, even when they banned pictures from being taken at the school, also the teachers don't do anything about it! Not even bullying. The school could care less if you were dealing with bullies or issues. All they want is your money. And that's it. I'm glad I moved away from that school. I'm glad I'm away from Kansas. I would NOT recommend this school.

The state tests say it all. From grade 6 to grade 8 they scores continue to decline. There are far too many students to teachers and I'm not at all impressed with this school. They randomly select student schedules putting kids with C's and D's in Honors classes and then don't bother to help them with tutors or getting any extra help. I'm sorry but if I had it to do all over again would have never put my kids here.

As a parent, I am impressed with Wilbur. Most of the teachers are caring and make the child's learning a top priority.

I am an 8th grade student at Wilbur. I believe that the students know themselves, their parents, their peers, their teachers, and their administrators better than anyone else because they see all of them everyday.I think that Wilbur is an excellent school with great values, great kids, and great teachers. We definetly have our flaws, but they are outweighed by the great people, great values, and amazing experiences here at Wilbur Middle School. My mother, my brother, and my sister all attended Wilbur and I plan on sending my children to Wilbur.

I have had 2 children in Wilbur and both have had excellent experiences. I have another coming up next year and he can't wait to go. We had a problem one or two times with bullying but they were dealt with in a quick mannner. I am a member of the PTA for 3 years and have volunteered for many events including the book fair. The parent assist is a great way to keep on track with your kids grades and it was just implemented in the past year and a half.

The administration at this school failed numerous times to provide a safe learning environment for my children. The principle neglected to follow a zero tolerance for violence and bullies. I can only hope the emotional damage and scars from this school will fade. I would never recommend this school to anyone.

I am very disappointed in the administration of this school. They are too focused on identifying faults in the students rather than educating them. While I encourage self-expression and individualism in my children, the school discourages and punishes these traits as being 'disruptive to the learning environment.' They single out students who do not fit in with the majority and force them to coalesce. The policies of this school do not reflect my values as a parent at all, and I will not be sending my children here any longer.

The principal of this school is very strict, and can not relate to students. The administration does not help students to enjoy school. Many teachers have left the school due to the poor administration. Wilbur Middle School is not a school I will send my kids to anymore.
