WMS is just a depressing place. NO one really cares. Teachers always seem to be just going thru the motions vs actually enjoying their jobs...and that is it...they seem to look at being there as a job not a career. Little communication other than robo calls. parents are an untapped resource. Lots of parents have lots to offer, but are not utilized. oh and very, very clique-ie....kids, parents and staff!!!

Haven't seen anything great! Seen lots mediocre! Seen too much bad!!! From top down, NOT IMPRESSED! Emails are more often than not ignored for lengthy periods and even ignored totally! Teachers yell at and intimadate students! If there is a morality clause in Haywood Co it is not enforced!

Not impressed. New(ish) principal of questionable morals & almost militant in approach. Bad teachers are never disciplined or removed.

This school is the worst my chidren have ever attended. The staff and administraton do not answer calls or emails and they do not communicate with the parents in a timely way. They seem more focused on moving kids along than actually providing an education. I have never considred prviate school until now, but Waynesville Middle has made me re-think school voucher programs.

I am glad my son is taking the Advanced PE class. The teacher has motivated him and his friends to exercise, move about, and take pride in themselves. At first I thought he was kidding when he said he had homework in PE. He really did. Now we exercise together as a family. It's great!

Yippee!!!! Waynesville is a great school and they added Air Conditioning for the new school year. My son loves it there. Teachers and principal are always available for meetings, )even if you pop in unannounced)

The teachers really do care! The way the Teams are setup seem to work well. Every interest a child or teen has is offered either in school as extracurricular activities. Classes are well organized and rounded. My child learns so much, and is getting prepared well for high school and just life in general.
