I've had my children in this school for few years and have not had an issue until this year. I feel that my children's teachers are very unorganized and do not give there all, they seem to just be there for a paycheck also the principal doesn't seem to have anytime for parents concerns she always in a "meeting." My children have also told me that the teachers don't have time to listen to their concerns. It's very upsetting and I know many parents that feel the same.

My son went to this school and he loved it. The teachers really care about the kids and he was actually sad to leave after 4th grade. WEST IS BEST!

We absolutely love WMI. Both of our boys have gone there from Kindergarten (One is a 4th grader, the other is a 1st grader). We have found the teachers to be extremely dedicated, the administration responsive and supportive, and the overall WMI "Community" to be extremely warm. There is an extremely strong PTA that work in conjunction with the school to deliver great programs for our students. When we first moved to Longwood people warned us about the district being "not so great", but nothing could be further from the truth.

There is a sense of pride and dedication to the West Middle Island School. There are teachers that go above and beyond for the benefit of the children's learning experience. Whether its creating new community projects that embrace the children's creativity, having a fantastic field day experience, or just saying hello in the hallway, the Staff at West really is the BEST!!!

If you want to spend all your time home schooling your child then West Middle Island is the school for you. The level of incompetence amongst the majority of the teachers in this school is unbelievable. Most of the teachers are too busy socializing or playing on the computer to be bothered teaching the students. The principal is completely clueless as to what is going on, and basically turns a blind eye to everything they do or don't do for that matter.

This is my 2nd year w/boys in grades 1 & 4. Wmi has a great cultural arts program. They also offer after-school programs for grades 3-4. The school and pta have great activities planned throughout the year for the parents, children, and community. They instill important values such as trust and honesty in everyday curriculum. All of the teachers i have dealt with are completely accessible to parents whether it be phone calls or through email. The staff and administration at wmi really do make the children their first priority.

The quality of education at West Middle Island is reflected in the success and happiness of my full day Kindergarten child. She is eager each morning to attend school and can't wait for writer's workshop, library, reading, music and gym, etc. The balanced literacy program has also been successful with my daughter. We began reading to her since birth, so she has easily become an emergent reader! Her teacher is well qualified and involves the parents 100% in her activities. The weekly homework letter integrates the lessons taught daily and weekly. The PTO plays a wonderful part in our child's education offering the Fall Festival, free books, The Holiday celebration and school shopping event, as well as more to come this year. The district itself truly is here for the children. We are proud to be in the Longwood School District!

My son just finished 1st grade here and he loves it. He had a seasoned wonderful teacher who was patient and firm at the same time. He was exposed to art, gym, music, and all the teachers were happy and positive. However he had a rough class with two children being suspended and others constantly disrupting the class. The school needs to weed out the kids that should be held back or put in special ed for behavior problems. There are some really rough children even in the elementary schools. Parent involvement varies. Again, my son loves the school! I do like the positive attitude of the teachers and the overall cleanliness and condition of the school.

I have a 3rd grader and a kindergardener in this school, and have had nothing but a positive experience! There is so much to offer, and both my children have achieved more than I could have imagined. I also have a nephew who is graduating from Longwood High School this year, who started out at West Middle Island, and still has almost straight A's. This school is awesome, after all 'West is Best'!
