Washington No. 1 Middle School 3

Teachers at WMS are great. Dedicated, hardworking.. you can tell they became teachers because they love it. If it wasn't for the great teachers, I would have taken my daughter out the first week. Principal and administration could be much much better. Many of the children have out of control behaviors (fighting, bullying, stealing, inappropriate clothing). Not much is done at all. Great teachers, carefree principal & administration and children with a clear lack of guidance both at home and at school.

Dedicated faculty and staff who genuinely care about each student. Teachers generously give of themselves academically, emotionally, and financially to support the students.

Mediocre academics, good discipline, few resources. Principal trying to turn around troubled school with major ESL challenges and transient student body.

This year is my last year at this school. So far it has not been the best. We had to adjust to a new principal with new rules. They include not being able to carry our backpacks for 7 periods a day aside from lunch and dismissal. We have to carry 3 heavy textbooks and 3 subject notebooks and folders, workbooks, pencil cases just for the morning. I believe this is unfair and we were not presented any reason for this.
