Hallway behavior, bad. Classroom behavior, worse. Students run roughshod over the staff with few repercussions from the principal. Why would students stop bullying and acting out if there are no consequences?
I was very excited for my son to start at Woodbury Middle School this year. I had read and heard so many great things about the school. My son had learning disabilities and I had heard that WMS did a great job with special ed. students. The year started out great and I will say that academically my son has had his best year yet. My son ended up getting into a little bit of trouble while letting himself be coerced by another student. When I contacted the school about his punishment the school principle didn't want to hear anything I had to say. She wouldn't decided it was better that we "agree to disagree", and frankly I don't want to agree to disagree when it comes to my child's education. After that conversation I had tried to reach the superintendent twice with no response as well as send an email to my son's case worker at school. Nobody could get back in touch with me and when I expressed my concern again at conferences I was told I should call again! Hello! How many times do I have to call again? I do not believe that WMS or it's staff really cared about my child as a student there. If they had someone would have gotten in touch with me.
The earlier reviews don't tell about the way kids bully the teachers or the way the kids act. I have a hard time studying here.
Woodbury Junior is now Woodbury Middle School with grades 6-8. I cannot say enough good things about this school. Principal Kari Lopez is fabulous. She has a completely open door policy with staff, students, and parents, and she is totally student centered, always making decisions based on what is best for them. She has assembled a wonderful team of teachers. They are both great teachers in the classroom and hold their students to high standards in many areas of their lives both in and out of the classroom. Woodbury Middle's PTO is a strong vibrant organization very welcoming of new parents. They are focused on continuously working to build the community of Woodbury Middle. The student community is strong. School sponsored events sometimes draw half the student body. And student test scores are strong and growing. It's a great school!
I was never good at making friends or any of my classes at other schools, but my first year in 7th grade at WJH I learned so much I never thought possible! Not just academically but I learned more about myself and I made so many friends. It didn t matter how much money my family had or what I wore or what music I listened to everyone liked me for me! Recently I transferred to Lake Jr. High its nice but it doesn t have that feeling that makes it home.
This is a great school! Wonderful education, teachers and principal who manages and takes action when problems occur. My child had a wonderful 1st year at Woodbury Jr. High!
