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.
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!!!
