West Alexander has been a disappoinment to our family since my son first started attending. This is his 3rd year at the school. When his mother and I made it manditory for him to attend open houses at the beginning of the year and at report card time to show his teachers that our family care we were surprised to see that only 1 of 4 core teachers bothered to attend these events themselves. My son receives almost no homework and I don't feel that this school has done anything to prepare him for high school or college. Don't take my word, research the % of students in this county that graduate college compared to other area school systems. Another area of major concern is the lack of seperation of church and state, this seems to be a very backwards county and school system who repeatedly allow their religious believes to be forced upon the students. With less than 2 months of school before high school begins my son just brought home a flyer from the school asking for permission for him to miss 3 school days in order to attend christian crusade at the local baptist church. Do your research people, stay away from this county and stay away from West Alexander Middle School.

My child had a good experience here until the 8th grade. In the 8th the kids are broken into teams. There was the good team and the bad team. Unfortunately, there was really poor teacher. When the parents complained, we were told that they had never had complaints. That there was no history. At the end of the year about half of the kids failed end of grade testing. Another school employee also told me that these problems had been going on for years. I do not blame the teacher. I blame the school administration who did not protect the children.
