Traverse City West Middle School is a large but very intimate school. It is broken down into three hallways, which are then broken down into smaller teams in each grade. Each team has a core of teachers and then elective teachers/classes. The faculty/staff/administration is all very hands on. This is an excellent school.
West is the best and better then all the rest. East is the least and can't even compete.
The caring atmosphere for our students and staff. We are one big family.
The elementary and Middle School has been a wonderful school experience for both of my children. I am so impressed by the quality of educators working in this district. My children are not the easiest to deal with and I could not be happier with their progress.
This is a very good school for the average to excellent student. ADD/ADHD may 'fall through the cracks' here. The school has a strategy the seems good but it isn't as thorough as it could be.
As a new family to this school district, we did a lot of research prior to moving to this district. We chose this district based on comments on these type of sites as well as testing scores. I have to say I feel we were mislead by the wonderful reviews we read. I'm not saying this school is all that bad, but it is not as good as the ratings made it look. The 9th graders were not treated like high school students with them being housed in the junior high building, although that will change next year. A major concern I have is that the school spends money on buying game tables and other fun stuff for the kids to do during lunch, yet not all classes have enough books for everyone, so no one is allowed to take the books home for those classes.
I am in girls basketball, volleyball and on the track team. I am an honor student and I am a member of the notional honors society. All of which are great school programs. I am also a member of the women's symphonic choir and was a previous member in orchestra. Which travese public schools are known for their music prgrams. From personal experience I enjoy this school and believe it has a great quality for educational and extra circular activities.
