Horrible. I would not recommend anyone go to this school. They do nothing about bullying, and in fact the principal and his wife are the biggest bullies in the system.

Obviously this is a late response but I know for a fact that all student athletes HAVE to have passing grades to participate. The same goes for choir, band, and other events. They are allowed to attend practice but no participating in games/contests/competitions. It's the same policy at all MN public schools and probably in a lot of other areas. Maybe you've heard of other schools somehow getting around that and fudging grades but WEM isn't one of them.

The School is good if your child wants to be involved with sports! They do tend to focus more on sports than academics! They could also put more funds into the music, and art programs they have! There is lots of parent involvment which is a big help to the school district, with lots of parents help through classroom task, anything they can do to help! That is a big Plus for the school district. I also believe when it comes to academic programs,students should not be allowed to play sports,and or do any extracurricular activities unless there grades are passing, and there work is turned in. I think the school district would see a higher percentage of kids grades accelerate, while teaching them they have to work hard for what thay really want! The school district could go to being one of the best around if there was some drastic changes!
