This school is absolutely amazing!!!! They have so many options, clubs and places to be. You are never bored and you always feel included. The teachers and guidance counselors are wonderful and very smart. Students can even gain responsibility by helping out with plays or starting clubs, and they can gain confidence through everyday classes, and musicals and concerts. This is a great school!
Everybody works together to create a strong environment that allows people to be themselves. I love being apart of the WMS school community!
I just started 6th grade at this school. I expected it to be a much bigger change to go from one teacher all day to a different teacher each period. They took all the stress out of it. I felt very welcome and the teachers were great. This is the first year I have felt school is fun!
This is a fantastic school. I just moved here this year and I have tons of friends and the teachers are amazing. The sprts programs are well organized and fun. I recommend this to anyone looking for a school in MA.
My child has had a fantastic first year at this school. The 'houses' are an excellent way to indoctrinate/introduce these 11 and 12 year olds to middle school. It is a big adjustment to move from the SAME teacher all day, to different ones each period. I cannot begin to show appreciation for the terrific staff.
A good school with a good record but has begun to fall. Far too much renovation and lack of a strong math curriculum is a major problem. I personally feel there is little ecouragement work hard. creati
I have a son in 8th grade who's spent three years at WMS. Excellent teachers in all subjects, outstanding principal in John D'Auria. Wonderful series of parent workshops on Weds. mornings throughout the year. Lots of opportunities for kids to try different, new clubs and interests. High-intensity town - WMS is terrific last stop before 'it starts to count.'
WMS is a good school for the students who can take the stress. There is a lot of stress I have been having and an increadible amount of reports and homework early in the year.
I think the school is fairly good. I problem I have is that the school won't honor children who do really well. For example they got rid of the Honors Pin because some parents complained. Whatever parents except the fact that your kid is not an amazingly brilliant child. After saying that, they can honor athletics. This year there was a bogus marithod day. They got these nice medals. Nice job being equal. You suceeded.not... Anyway, I think that the school is fine, if not a little obnoxious, but they really need to be fair. It's actually pretty anoying but I'm leaving this district for private school next year so whateverrrrrrrr...
It's a really inclusive school. It feels like a second home to the student, no matter how big it is. The faculty does everything they can to not only make the student feel safe and at a comfortable learning level, but they also prepare them well for the future.
