My child has had an incredible experience at WBMS. The teachers have challenged him academically by providing deep, involved lessons that have him excited to learn. The band program has been great! Principal Rebello brought changes to the programming that have really supported all the students. Don't be fooled by the rumors, Easthampton has great schools!

I transferred my daughter from a private Christian school in the 7th grade. She flourished under the direction of her teachers, who were very attentive....and were great at communicating with me. I dealt mostly with the vice principal with the transfer and she made sure to keep in contact and at the end of the 8th grade, told me she hoped I'd made the right decision in transferring.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
