I am currently an 8th grade student at West Scranton Intermediate, and though my time there is coming to an end, I have to say, I will not miss it. The Principle and Vice Principle have no clue as to what really goes on at West Intermediate. Many students are bullied. Many teachers bully students. I'm in the Phi House part of the school, and the teachers are the worst I have ever had as a student. Most of them are difficult to work with and overall aren't good at what they do. I'm having a very difficult time this year with the teachers. They judge students and ridicule them. They very quick to act and do not take time to assess a situation. I've been very disappointed with my time at West Intermediate, I would recommend not sending your child there, to a parent. They will struggle with both teachers and students. It will be a difficult three years and I'm glad mine is coming to an end.

The teachers, staff and PTA are terrific. Academically speaking, the children are well prepared for High School and beyond. But the most impressive use of our childrens young minds is the fact that the school teaches them to cook, sew, woodworking, computers, other languages, fitness, swimming and so many other important skills that all children should have acess to.

My views may be a bit premature do to me only being a 6th grader, however, from what i have seen from my short time there, this is a really good school. The teachers respect you(well most of them) they aren't screamers or yellers,they offer classes for several people who may not be up to the task of the regular classrooms(or kids that may be to advanced.)If you live in, or near a place where your child can get to this school, i would recommend it, except if you can go to some extrondirnarily good private school, i say go for it

The principal at this school is extremely difficult to work with. She has rules that are outside the norm for the area and forces parents to put their children in unsafe situations. The teachers are close minded and unwilling to move with the times. Their teaching methods are outdated and boring.
