My son attended this school for a very short period of time. I transferred him because he was an AG student that wasn't being challenged academically. The principal is there to collect a paycheck. She has her favorites for sure. The secretary/receptionist is rude and the teachers with the exception of a few are under qualified. They are more interested in punishing children than teaching. My daughter will NOT attend this school even if it means paying for private middle school education.

Argh! I hate this school! The Secretary is rude! The principal is clueless. And the teachers should seek other options. This is my second year with them and I am getting more and more frustrated. I am seeking other options. Mychilds education is to important to leave it in Wendell Middle Schools hands...

I left Wendell in 12'. Now that I'm in high school I finally realize that Wendell is horrible in preparing students for high school. You can turn in work at anytime and most of all the teachers grade on a curve. The administration doesn't punish the kids hard enough, which means the petty things they do in middle school are huge offenses in High School. Its's a rude awakening when these kids get to high school. Wendell basically sets them up for failure in 9th grade, which is the most important year in high school. I really feel bad for these kids.

Classes offer lots of technology like SMARTboards in every classroom. My child has used a flip camera and other gadgets for learning and he loves it! Discipline can be inconsistent from what I have heard, but my child is happy there. They are starting to do more fun things this year like parent night, club acitivites and pep rallies. They still have to work on more things like this.

This school has gotten some major updates since 2009. We've moved into a new, huge building, with a lot of room. Unfortunately, it's still underfunded. There's 1 textbook for every 3 kids, roughly. It's a great school, but the teachers don't get many opportunities to do much- in fact, the 8th grade is FINALLY getting to go on their first field trip. Nice school, but dealing with funding issues. (Yes, they have lockers, person from 2009.)

I love this school the children are challenged and get along very well. When you have a girl the challenges of other girls getting along is a huge deal..

The only thing good about this school are the teachers. They do try and are caring. There is a really rough bunch of kids that go to this school. I am dealing with my child constantly being bullied there and it is never ending. The teachers try to get a handle on the bad ones but it seems that the majority of the kids that are there are bullies. No lockers no text books, no clubs, no extras for the kids.
