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.
