I go to this school. We're a small town with no budget. That doesn't mean we're a bad school

well I have to say that my years at hwms have been those that I will remember forever. the principal, staff, and student were all wonderful people. last year when I was in the 8th grade, hwms started a PBIS program and I believe it worked very well. the overall behavior improved dramatically. I had the honor to attend a PBIS meeting with two of my fellow students and 4 of my teachers. We have made so many improvements this year and I am very proud of all the work the everyone put in this year, and I think that our school is only going to get better thanks to the efforts of Mr. Clayton Lewis!!

I was a student at Henry Wilson and my son was too, with two more to follow. I never had a problem setting up meetings with the teachers, I never had problems getting my son help with his math or spelling. I have been in that school during school hours and never have I seen kids running amuck or being out of control. Yes there are times when there was a lot of yelling, but that would be kids enjoying what they're learning and actually getting into the lesson. I do however think they are a bit strick on some things, but if you think about it all who could blame them.

My child attends HWMS and I have to say, I'm not impressed. We recently moved here this year from a small community school where eveyone was involved. I have absolutely no feed back from my sons teacher (with many notes and attempts to have meetings with her)!! My son is struggling, and with the school failing academically, I have to shell out money to weekend tutoring. My husband and I are very much involved in the education of our children, but with no communication with the teacher, we are having a difficult time. We are hoping to move again before our daughter has to endure the same struggles as my son when she reaches HWMS.

I am a student at this school and think that hwms is a wonderful school. Of course you do have you students that misbehave but for me school is a wonderful place. The teachers for the 7th grade, which I am in, are so much fun to be around and make learning fun. 8th grade teachers I have heard are also very nice Mr. Scogan (8th grade math) coach's the soccer team and Ms. Capen (8th grade literature) is always attendind basketabll games. This is what I have to say about my school.

This school seems to be getting better all the time. For such a low budget, things seem to be quite comparable to others in the county. The principal communicates well with the children and they enjoy his personality.

this school really needs to get better teachers half of them are crazy and are only teachers here because of the low budget to pay them with. the kids are aloud to run free and have no class because the teachers can not control them.
