This school has been awful for my child! The new state standards have sucked the last wisps of joy from the learning experience and the teachers are more concerned with hazing the children in preparation for the real world than imparting any real knowledge or learning. When my child was unable to pay attention through hours of dull lectures, instead of finding ways to make classes more palatable, we were told that this is how it is in the real world and he just has to learn to deal with it. There were no accommodations made for any kind of attention deficit problems or for gifted children who were bored with the extremely limited curriculum. My child was constantly failing classes but getting awards for academic achievement based on his state test scores! I resent that these teachers received higher ratings based on his high scores when they were clearly failing him in the classroom. I finally transferred my child mid-year to a nearby private school and the WCSD is refusing to amend the bus routes to accommodate him until the next school year. I tried many times to contact the BOE and never received any answer. Do your child a favor and put him/her in a different school!

i am a seventh grader at WMS. it is a really good school. the sixth grade teachers are really good at welcoming the sixth graders to the middle school. it is a big transition from elementary school to middle school!!!!! this school is a little big and can be confusing at first, but once you know your way around, you will never forget it. i am in band and i love it!! the band teachers are sooooo nice and they really want you to be interested in playing an instrument! WMS is a really awesome school!!!!!

Washingtonville Schools are absolutely wonderful. The teachers are so kind and sweet. My child is doing great in school and they always are so helpful! The art and music programs are great. The chorus concert is always so superb! They really have good academics in Washingtonville. They teach them very well and it truly is a wonderful district.

Nothing but good things to say about this school and its entire staff. The only problem is with the building itself. It is old and overcrowded, but that issue is being dealt with now.
