I love this school, and Iv'e had a great 7th grade year so far! We have great principals that actually care about what the students think. At Western Harnett Middle School they even have a Career Fair. They have a varied of clubs to choose from such as Gospel choir, Photography, Dance and a lot more than what is talked about on this website. as for sports at this school girls can try out for Football as well. It has drama but what school doesn't ? But the people that said that there is a lot of bullying, there Isn't as a matter of fact if you bully your impudently expelled. That is also done if your fighting but you will go to Star Academe for an amount of time.

I go to this school and there is so much bullying and drama and its so horrible never send your kids here please. The teachers and staff members are inconsiderate and rude to students. While im am getting an adequate education going to school everyday is a chore because of this. The school itself is old and there is writing and gum on the walls everywhere. Plus the buses are older too and i have to wake up very early because my bus comes at 6:15. I would love switch schools but i sadly can't. Be warned about this school. Its truly terrible

My daughter had a great year in 6th grade. The teachers and the Staff were wonderful. I hope 7th will be the same.

I went to this school from 6-8th grade. I am now a junior at Western Harnett High School and this was a pretty good school. This school's gym needs to be fixed up, but other than that, it's a pretty good school. Some of the teachers were strict, but only cause they had to.

I think this school stinks. The kids are running the school not the administration. The school is not welcoming and there is not teacher enthusiam at all. It is obvious that the administration doesn't work well together. The kids can get away with anything.

The school is pretty awesome. Im in the 8th grade and i do agree we need more help with tutoring at the school because my cousin is struggling in math and he can only get help from me.

My daughter goes to WHMS....we are new this year to the school district. When we first got here we were concerned with the transition. The teachers and the administrators were quick at helping us feel welcomed!!! I have yet to see any negative to this point. The band director Mr. Collins is awesome and shows much interest in teaching great skills to the students.

I am aware that this school has had many changes for the 2007-2008 school year. However, I do not feel that it excuses the negetive effects that it has had on the environment, teachers, and most importantly the students.

The principal @ WHMS is rarely avalible to meet with parents and dimisses their concerns. I feel the school and the childern would be better served if the school was looked into. The fact that there are students who have been @ the school for three years and do not even know what the principal looks like should say something.
