The New School is wonderful, although the students are horrible to one another, no joke. Guidance programs and extra curriculars are great, teachers are amazing, overall a great place to get an education.

The academic program in the Weare Middle School is great. They touch all sides of learning, from the facts to the arts, including home economics, art class, PE, and music. There is plenty of extra curricular, including CASA (center for after school activities), sports, music lessons, yearbook, and an EXCELLENT school newspaper program, one of the best I have ever seen at a middle school level. I don't know much about the level of parent involvement, but we all know that the new school will be a great addition to this already wonderful school.

I'm a WMS student, and I think that although the buildings are horrific, the teachers and programs they offer us more than make up for the condition of the buildings.

Having resided in Weare for 5 years, I can attest to only elem and middle schools. I believe thay are very good schools. Excellent academics, teacher & parent involvement and the ambience that comes with a small rural setting. I would rate the schools overall 8 out of 10. With the building of the new middle school, that could go up to nine. My kids have done very well and the sex education part is teaching abstinence, which is fantastic in this day and age. having foster kids, we have discovered they have an excellent special needs curriculum. The program has impressed social workers, CASA, parents and guardian ad litems.

Lets just say I am a student here in Weare, and last time i brought a cousin in to visithe made funky faces.It has a great education. so lets say the french room gets kicked out of there room be cause of some kind of wierd mold they move in to the library.that means less time for the studys.the cafetieria,EEW gross.there is pudding on the cieling!roast beef day lets just say wasnt good.the senior citizens might be against the new school project that is BAD. we need to hold programs and bake sales and other things to rain=se enough money. I looked at the plans it looks awesome! so in conclusion we NEED a new school!
