My child has been sad to see favorite teachers leave this school, because teacher pay is so low in NC. The school has computers but doesn't have enough money for textbooks. This is especially difficult when it comes to math. NC schools have almost the lowest per student and teacher pay in the country, and this school does as well as it can under circumstances.

Not very affective with bullying..we have peace out purple out once a month but its not enough. half the kids see it as an opportunity to wear their favorite color. theres cliques, and cheerleaders and football players act as if they are higher than others. bullying on buses, laughing at students when they dont know the answer, its hard to find a place where you feel safe. drama,rumours, im glad im applying to Central Academy of Technology and Arts (Union County Career Center), and amazing school that prepares you for college and beyond, its an amazing high school and id much rather go there than to go to Weddington High School, which i can only imagine is full of even more drama.

MWS has been my daughters middle school for 3 years, 6th and 7th grade were fine, Her teachers were engaged, my daughter enjoyed her education and excelled. But 8th grade took a turn from bad to really awfull. One teacher assigned too much homework, forgot to teach and my daughter needed help. I attempted to get help. I email the teacher, 5, 7 days would pass befor I would get a response. Her responses were short, abrupt and annoyed. I have always supported the staff and the tough job they have. But their attitude toward me was rude, How dare I ask a question, how dare I, the parent, get involved in my childs education. They hung up on me, the resorted to calling me names saying I was acting like a child, and being difficult. They refused to answer my questions. The staff and specifically the administration have forgotten that I am the customer. I choose to bring my child to them for education and they have no right to treat me with disrespect, talk down to me or ignore me. The staff and the principal need to realize that they may be paid by the county but I am their costomer and I will be heard even if you hang up the phone on me.

I can't say enough good things about Weddington Middle School. Both of my children attended private elementary school so I was sensitive to their transition into a much larger, public middle school. The exceptional leadership, extremely capable and accomplished teaching staff and the positive, supportive student environment provides the foundation for Weddington Middle, one of this state's most accompished public schools. I would recommend Weddington to any family interested in offering their child a middle school experience that will lay the groundwork for success in high school and beyond.

I am now in high school at CATA (central academy of technology and arts ) but I went to weddington for middle school. Let me tell you that all 3 years for me were my own personal hell. I was constantly bullied until sometimes I went home crying. I am forever scared by the tourture of weddington I still go to counsoling today and its been almost 6 or 7 months since I left. My only friend. Is still there and she says people still talk about me. If your a good parent and you take your time to read this DO NOT SEND YOUR KID TO WEDDINGTON MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!!!!!

My son is in 8th grade and came from a private school in the north. Since he walked in the door in 6th grade, I am constantly impressed with the dedication and committment of the faculty. The principal is extremely focused on the well being and development of all the students. We are thrilled with the enviroment and feel the welcoming and appreciative attitude towards the parents help make the school experience extremely positive. This school is a bright spot in our transplant to NC, and highly reccommend to anyone.

I am new at WMS and I just started 7th grade. I came from Charlotte Preparatory School and I hope to be reunited with that school next semester. At the tour that I took of the school, it seamed nice, and above average public school, nothing to to special. So I was excited to go to my first day of school there, but now, I wish that I never switched schools. There are alot of clicks and other problems like that. I used to be a cheerleader but at this school the cheerleaders are so mean and I never want to be one... There are these girls that just have something agenst me for no apparent reason they are very annoying. So off the subject of social lifes and on to the subject of academics. The academics at weddington are very weak, but this is coming from a girl who went to a prep school so the academics there were outstanding. They are teaching me everything that I learned 2-3 years ago. I am so unhappy in weddington its crazy, spare your child the pain and either send them to charlotte prep, a private school, or a different union county school. Good luck and I wish you the bestin finding a school for you/your child

This school is doing an excellent job with a very large student population of 3 grades 6-8th (1400 kids) all going through 3 very challenging years of life. Next school year should see a reduction in population due to the new Cuthbertson school and coming from a 450 student middle school I am amazed at the job they do to keep this school so highly rated.

I am a student at WMS and I cannot say that it is a great school. As previously mentioned, it sticks to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study intensively and leaves no room for students to pursue self-paced curriculums. I believe that this school leaves a lot to be desired and would not recommend sending your child there. In fact, I am looking into private schools as a better alternative to WMS.

My son graduated from wms last year. The english dept. Leaves a lot to be desired!!! He is not prepaired for high school honor classes as they demand a lot of writing skills! Many subjects give essay tests which WMS did not instruct or consentrate on writing skills or how to outline before writing. I feel like I am teaching what should have been taught in 6th grade. This was a big problem which I brought up to the school every year that he attended. They desperately need to institute a new curriculum incorporating reading and writing. All subjects should include short answer questions and short essay's on their tests. Parents...Be pro-active!!!!!

I am an eighth grade student at WMS, and cannot say that I am very proud to be one. the education sticks, for the most part, to the curriculum. in short: we spend half the year learning how to fill out a test form. In addition, the communication between teachers and students is not acceptable. Physical activity is at the minimum of what is required. The PTSO is now holding a campaign to feed starving horses. The money that they endlessly pry from parents should be put to a more... relevant cause. Teachers only seldom stray from what is required for students to learn, hence repetitive and uneducational lessons.

I just moved here from New Jersey this year for seventh grade. I absolutley hate the idea of how teachers are more focused on if you have your shirt tucked in, instead of education. I never had any lunch detentions in my old school, but here I have had over 5 for tardies and dress code. Here is an example: I was sitting in my seat and one side of my shirt was not tucked in, I was then punished for that. I understand that if a student stands up and notices a child does not have their shirt tucked in, it is okay to ask them to tuck it in, but teachers look to get you in trouble. I was late various times by about 15 seconds because we are coming from the locker room. The locker room is absolutely insane and there are too many kids.

As a parent of a transfer student and longtime NC resident, I was shocked at how rudely my child and I were treated by the front office upon simply trying to enroll. That should have been my clue to 'run.' The school seems to focus totally on tiny infractions, while missing the big picture of educating and imbuing a sense of passion for learning. In addition the athletic program at the school, in my opinion, is completely political. If your child has not grown up in the area, it is virtually impossible to gain a spot on one of the sports teams. My middle schooler went from playing pick-up games at an ACC college and holding all-star trophies at a well-known baseball program to being left out by Weddington. In summary, my child's experience at Weddington was poor and fell far short of my expectations.

I am on my fourth child to go through this school. I have not had a bad experience with any of them, but certainly not a good one. Discipline is in my opinion a strength of the school, but teaching expertise/talent is a definite weakness. I get a strong sense that many of the teachers are coasting until retirement. All of my children are good students. Objectively, they probably aren't very self motivated, and could be better students - but, they all have been bored. The 6th grade teaachers are great.

administration is extremely kind and accommodating and fortunately that mood continues throughout the school. Administration's goal appears to be maintain an excellent curriculum and well behaved environment If your child needs to be nurtured perhaps you should do more at home! a love of learning among students. Curriculums are challenging to say the least as the teachers there truly care for all students in all grades. There ARE school plays, a very good band,and a lot of clubs including many!

Principal 'does what is necessary'- ie. lunch detention for chewing gum, in school suspension for dress code violations (having your shirt untucked, having a logo on your polo). The administration is focused on the wrong thing. Students are not treated with respect, nor are parents. Suggestions or involvement by parents is not encouraged.Adacemics- good, because most students are relocated from other places. Very large 'gifted' population. Blue ribbon, school of distinct honor- in NC.Extracurricular activities mostly run by booster club-who constantly butts heads with school administrator- 'the one' who rules all at this school. Just mention WMS and you will hear her name. Try to schdedule a school visit- the 'feeling' you get from the front office is pervasive throughout the school.Parents who are followers are welcome. Discipline is the main focus at this largely undiverse, middle class suburban school.

Weddington Middle is an excellent school. It is overcrowded. The student population has exceeded 1700 students for the past 2 years. However, the teachers and administration work hard to ensure the school runs smoothly. While the principal may not be popular with all parents, she does what is necessary to run such a large school and to produce outstanding test results. Teachers communicate regularly with parents using email and personal web pages. Great school!

I am an eigth grade student at WMS, and I couldn't be happier. The students and staff are always there to help. If you didn't know WMS is rated the second highest public school in the state. Uniforms and discipline help with this. If we didn't have uniforms not only could students get distracted by how they look but they could be distracted by how other students look. If we didn't have as strict of rules as we do students would be wild.WMS has it's rules to keep the students and property safe not to offend of anger anyone. I'm in theese classes everyday, so if your a parent who has a child who's gotten in trouble, then I think you deserve to know that the teachers give the students at least one warning before sending to the office. Parents make up the uniform and rules it's called the School Board.

Decent school, but certainly not great. Principal focuses more on discipline and enforcement of dress code than on education. Overcrowding is a big issue. Opening of Marvin Ridge middle school should help, but planned opening date of mid-year could be in doubt. Teachers are generally good, a few are outstanding, but a few have been poor/mediocre. Give credit to high student test scores more to population demographic than to school administration.

Our daughter has been at WMS for two years and couldn't be happier. The teachers are awesome and create a very positive learning environment. We considered a top Charlotte private school and with high recommendations from a long term teacher from that private school to go to WMS - we did. One of the best decisions we've made. Also, it is the middle of summer break and our daughter is counting the days till school starts. We thank the teachers, staff, and parents for creating a wonderful place for my child to grow.

I agree with the other parents. The administration tends to be rude to parents. Good luck trying to talk with the Principal! I have found that she is less the open to treating each child and their needs individually. These are still very young children that need to know the staff is caring and helpful. Uniforms are great, but the kids are afraid of getting in trouble for any variation. Instead, the staff should be focused on the children as people and their best interests. Uniforms should not be high priority for discipline! Good behavior should be first priority! Also, I wish the school was less crowded!

The administration runs this school like a military academy. They are rude to parents. They look for the children to do the wrong thing. The booster club provides the much needed sports and extra curricular activites, and this group of parents is strong and kind to the parents and children. Unfortunately, they have to walk on pins and needles just to use the facilites. The office staff is constantly upset with parents who dare make the mistake of asking about a sport. The focus is on catching the children doing as many little wrong things as possible, and throwing the book at them. An example is writing up children for a itsy bit of a shirt tail that comes out of the top of the pants. This is a big ordeal here, and teachers are on guard as the children get off the bus, looking for minor infractions. It is abuse of power!

It is interesting to note that the reviews of the WMS teachers and the parents of children who are having a positive experience at WMS tend to overlook the fact that some students and parents are not sharing the same experience. It would be nice if the parents, students, and staff could unite under strong leadership and make that experience possible for every student.

My WMS student is in her 2nd year at WMS. And though I know every child and school experience is it's own unique case, I urge readers who are looking at WMS to realize, most people are quick to point out problems, and slow to point out Good points and positives. I'm am pleased to tell you we have enjoyed and expect to continue to, our WMS experience. My now, 7th grader has blossomed in so many ways. She has had teachers guide and encourage her. She has made wonderful friends that will be for life. Yes, strict, yes dress code, yes a stern hand. We are not free without boudaries, and middle school ages are the most apt to test any boundaries. There could be more room for creative teaching. Over croweded yes, but I think the students are enjoying that too!

I am pleased with the school. The only complaints I have are some teachers giving too much homework and dress code policy should be enforced for all, even cheerleaders! With overcrowding a school must enforce discipline. As far as some of the complaints from parents on staff not be friendly, I have been in the office and overheard how some parents have been very rude to the staff.

I have had ond child go through all 3 years and another in the 7th grade. The school is definitely overcrowded and the principal is not the world's greatest cheerleader. However, the teachers are very good and have always taken an interest in my children. The administration is fairly rigid, but I feel they have to be. If they were not, every mother would be in there wanting to use their influence to get special treatment for their child. It is a diiferent world than the elementary school next door. Parents have to understand that more personal responsibility is expected from their child in middle school vs. elementary. I have found that if you are calm, reasonable, and respectful in discussing problems with the teachers that they will work with you. I feel they have a safe environment. Overall, I have been pleased

In another state our child mastered pre-Algebra as a standard 6th grade class. After a number of heated, yet reasoned discussions with the Administration, we were able to place our student in Algebra at WMS (7th grade student; 8th grade class; passed with an A). Now as an 8th grader, his options are limited (on-line computer geometry curiculum with limited teacher oversight). We have been willing to work with the administration. Unfortunately, it is block (one semester) and the only option we have been given for the 2nd semester is an unknown 7th grade class. I agree with both views on this site. WMS is a safe and disciplined school (A+). Unfortunately, the principal and administration have no vision or creativity with regard to education; are they not accountable for education also? Time to focus on 'positive' problems and issues (education). The professional WMS teachers and promising WMS students deserve better!

I have had two children in Weddington Middle School. It has been the most nightmarish experience I've ever had. The administration is rude and unprofessional. Many of the teachers are leaving. I followed all the 'rules.' It landed my children in a vindictive game where they were targets for the administration to attempt to punish the parents for requesting accountability. The problems are much deeper than the school administration. There is apathy at the county level as well. Think twice before enrolling your children in Weddington Middle School.

WMS is such an awesome school. Crowded? Yes. So there's no room for anyone planning to move into the area. No vacancy! When you have over 1,000 students, rules have to be enforced. Thank goodness the administration runs a tight ship. I am so thankful for an administation that puts up with zero tolerance. The PTSA had an opened house meeting at the beginning of the year, and also held an opened meeting a few weeks ago. Get involved with the PTSA. The members that represent WMS board are brilliant. Sadly, many are intimidated. Don't hesitate to join them next year. They welcome all with opened arms.

I am the father of four children in the Union County school system. My children are in three schools due to their ages. I am happy to say that our experience has been superb in two of the schools. However, Weddington Middle School is a different story. This administration would not survive in the business world. The parents and students are the 'clients', and the communication skill on the part of the administration is substandard. I would like to state for the record that WMS has great children, parents, and most teachers. The issues at hand involve the administration and the inability to follow the laws and policies that are in place. I am glad for any parent who has not experienced the wrath of the administration at WMS. For those of us who have seen this first hand, it is inexcusable, and appalling. Thank you for your time and attention.

The 2 years our child has attended WMS can only be characterized as deeply disappointing. Just to set the record straight, our child is an honor student/excellent attendance/zero disciplinary/dress issues. There is only a very small minority of parents who have positive comments about the school. The principal is untrustworthy. It makes me very sad to say that about an authority figure. Most of the problems stem from a lack of timely honest communication, which can only be produced when the voice behind it has courage(to experiment and to admit when mistakes have been made), competence, & leadership/organizational skills. The WMS website is a joke. Teachers' creativity/ voices have been stifled. There's just a handful of extracurricular activities. WMS is not producing well-rounded/academically sound students, despite the EOG scores(which provide zero diagnostic information and are for accountability purposes only). 'Weddington Middle School/Good Union County Schools' = oxymoron.

Our oldest child started at WMS 2 years ago. We had no idea what to expect from middle school and there was absolutely no one to help us! The staff was intimadating! They now have a friendly face at the front desk. We need more communication! The administration does not have the children's best interest at heart! It is time for a new and caring administration! And one that supports all teachers and gets rid of the ones that humiliate children!

This is my first year as a teacher and I'm so glad that I chose WMS. The administration has been very supportive. The other teachers have helped me every step of the way. The PTSA and other parents are very involved, caring, and supportive. I think having a uniform really helps with the discipline. The kids on the whole are great. The worst problem I've dealt with is teenager attitude- they are middle schoolers after all! I've not had to worry about violence, weapons, or drugs in my room. I feel very safe working late at the school. We are a bit crowded but work around it pretty well I think.

I have had children attend WMS for the last 5 years, we have had no problems. Our issues have been resolved professionally and quickly. We follow rules; those who do not are the one's who tend to have issues. The school is over crowded and in order to prevent chaos, there must be rules. Parents need to focus on the real issue of school crowding rather than what their children can wear. There are a few too many moms in that school who need to get their own life and stop harassing the administration. 5 years no problems, perhaps because we can follow rules and so can our children. The only people I know who have had problems are those who break the rules. Prevent overcrowding and the administration can ease up.

Weddington Middle School has a negative atmosphere that is dictated by a negative administration. There is nowhere to take valid complaints. Parents and students are constantly begging for positive changes to occur, and this administration will slam the door on anyone who asks to be heard. Examples of this are the following: No Open PTSA meetings this year No student directory Rare updates on the school website Extreme punishments for slight offenses Ignoring major complaints from parents and students We have rules and laws in place to protect us from these type of problems, unfortunately, the rights of administrators supercede these laws.

I too have been associated with Weddington Middle since 2001. I've watch a slow and steady decline in both student and faculty morale over the last 4 years. The emphasis at WMS is fund raising and appearance, not to be confused with academics and equity for students and teachers. Parents need to look into this reality. Secondly, about one third of the students have classes in trailers and if you think there are 15 students per teacher, think again. We take the total number of students and divide it by the staff. Most teachers have between 25-30 students per class. Don't just read the advertisement 'Weddington Schools'. Dig deeper. Look at the teacher turn-over rate. If this is Oz, why do they leave?

I have a son at the middle school and it has not been a good experience at all. We just moved here less than a year ago and compared to where we were, I can't believe how a school could be allowed to continue the way it's been going. My son likens the atmosphere of the school to military boot camp--I could understand this if we had chosen to go to boot camp but this is a public school and kids should be treated with respect and given a wonderful environment to learn in. My son just goes and can't wait for the day to be over. How sad is that? There are locker issues, time between classes is too limited, buses are late, dress code is crazy, and the one's running the school are not nurturing growth in our kids. Something needs to be done--now! Help!

I have found that Weddington Middle School has many good teachers. The majority are great! However, I do believe that the school is behind the times in communication. The school website should have links to each staff members' email address for ease of parent-teacher communication. Also, most schools have weekly homework information from each teacher or team and updated event calendars. Research supports the need for effective parent-teacher communication. Also, each child needs to be treated as an individual and genuine concern for each child's personal success seems to be lacking as a priority with the admnistration. I think the school is so large that a child is just another face in the crowd. An integration program needs to be in place to help new students and families smoothly transition into the WMS community.

Parents have no voice in this school. Students, parents, and teachers are treated with such lack of respect from the school administration. It is mind boggling. Attempts to resolve these and many other issues have fallen on deaf ears. The website previously spoken about is shut down, but parents are continuing to look for a venue to be heard. There are many good teachers in this school, and a great number of awesome children and parents. There has not been one open PTSA meeting all year long. There is no open communication at this school.

There isn't enough room for me to tell you all of the great things about my school.

Weddington Middle School has been a School of Excellence since it was founded in 1998. The teachers and administrators have the students' best interests at heart. The parents are very involved in many aspects of the school. The students are among the best in the state. The PTSA is active in supporting the school and its students. My daughter loves the school!

Weddington Middle School is plagued with administrative problems, and is a non parent friendly environment. I would urge anyone considering a move to this area to view the public website founded by a concerned parent. The information is eyeopening and disturbing. The public website is: groups.aol.com/nextstepswms

The administration shuns parent involvment. Additionally, the administration spends too much time disciplining kids about school uniforms than real issues. Many violent things have happened with little or no recourse on the administration's part. Additionally, extracurricular activities are almost non-existent due to the principals own personal views on sports. She has even alienated coaches who have volunteered.

Weddington Middle school is way to strict on certain policies and they treat parents like they are kids in the school. Have no respect for the kids and tend not to listen if the kids have to tell a story about what happend. If u ask me I would say that this school is tottally ridiculous.
