The atmosphere is cold, institutional, and impersonal. Children are not treated as individuals with unique needs and perspectives. I do not feel that my child is safe there.

I have had an awful experience when enrolling my son from a school district in another state. The atmosphere is very impersonal and inflexible. The level of the classes is far behind what he has had in the past. They denied him the opportunity to take Ancient Civilization which he has not had and wanted to take and instead placed him in American History for the third time (he is a bright A student and is bored stiff). Look at their website at the calendar. Nothing on there. Parents will not be informed when clubs meet or when athletic tryouts are to be held. If test scores are favorable it is a reflection of raw talent of students with professor and grad student parents (Asbury), NOT because of the school! Very impersonal institution! Avoid if possible.

I have been at wjms for 2 years and now have to switch to east. I am very upset about having to switch because wjms has the best teachers i have ever had in my life and the classes are great. They are very safe and you have fun but still learn what you have to learn.

We are fairly pleased with WJMS. The overall environment is excellent. The biggest concern is communication between leadership, teachers and parents. Test scores are not increasing due to NCLB and writing standards, yet it seems there are not enough assistants to help, although that may be a district wide problem. The teachers seem to be under a lot of strain currently with so many meetings that one wonders if that is getting in the way of instruction and planning. We see no real difference in accelerated instruction and regular instruction from friends of our child that are in regular ed classrooms. Our child enjoys school and likes the teachers although there are alot of teacher absences. We as parents have not gotten a realistic description of how the school plans to change this year to keep from going to tier 4, concerning, but better choice than EJMS by far.
