The teachers are great and they really do care. The administration is great. The class sizes could be smaller (it is what it is). I would love to see some more attention given to reluctant learners and those who need help with executive function. The teachers have great ideas--they really want to help. But applying the ideas is difficult at school (a little easier at home). I know it's hard to monitor so many kids who need help and I know all hands can't be held, but if there was a mini class once a day to force affected kids to go through their lockers, organize every document, and HAVE IT CHECKED--not just get a nod or acknowledgement, I think it would instill better organizational skills. Maybe some community service could be developed around buddying up with better skilled kids. The main requirement, though, has to be that the kids don't feel separated and singled out. Probably the hardest thing to accomplish. We all know it just gets more difficult in subsequent grades. Mastering this skill early would be a key to success every child deserves.

While the teachers and admin are nice, there is an environment of mediocrity at the school. If your child is gifted or above average, there are no services at all. There are no honors or advanced classes and the so called "enrichment" classes are a joke. They're a holding class for those who don't need additional help.

This school like going around the world with out leaving the country. Kids from around the world learn here in a place of peace. The teacher are some of the best because they care about their students really care.

The teachers and administrators at Watertown Middle School bring their love of education into the classroom every day. It is their support and preparation that gives WMS's diverse student population the skills that are essential to make the transition from elementary school to high school.
