my son graduated last year to west ashley middle school and now in 9th grade at west ashley high school and has been getting A's in geometry class and teacher want him to move to 10th grade level . Thank s to Miss Lebrun for being a hard teacher . " way to go WAMS "
WAMS gets better each year and is known for turning kids around who are heading in the wrong direction. The staff truly cares about the students and will go over and beyond to see the kids succeed!
west ashley is the bomb diggity. i went there for my 8th grade year and the whole school is awesome. i wish i could of gone there for another year
This is not a five star school and I disagree with the posting July 15, 2008. I do agree Mrs. Coker has tried. I say don't just look around, sit in a few of the classes! Parents, please get involved.... This school needs help.
WAMS is making a huge turn-around with the new leadership and excellent staff. It is a pleasure to work at West Ashley Middle.
This school has done a great turn around in the years that I have known it. I'll try to be brief but accurate. Security for the campus has improved so much that all teachers and most students say they feel very safe. The principal (Mrs. Coker) has created many clubs so the students would have a sense of belonging. The school has tried to get the parents to interact with the school and I have seen more parents on campus this year than for the past 5. I say stop by and look around the campus and see for yourself..
I have been a student at West Ashley Middle School for a year going on two. Kids misbehave and they do spend a lot of time on it such as the disciplining. Teachers and the faculty care about the grades. The first nine weeks only about 4 of my peers including myself got the honor roll. But the last nine weeks it was probably 10 or so. They give us time so we can pull our grades up. some teachers even give up their Saturdays. WAMS is a good school.
Im a student at west ahsley middle, the school really needs a good pick me up. The school worries more about behavior than acedemics. The school has verry bad behavior. We have no parent involvement once so ever. This school needs to buckle down on acedemics. Students do not receive help when needed. Over all west ashley middle needs a big improvment.
West Ashley Middle School is not quite the satisfactory school that I had hoped to attend! The honors program or SAIL programs are fairly good! Most of the teachers are very experienced in dealing with any problem students. As a former WAIS student...I would like to say that neither the middle or the intermediate schools are bad! They get too many bad reviews and they are mostly from people who were there first! The only problem that I have, as a student, is that the principal is very unsatisfactory for the students. The school is a good enough school for me and I think that others should check it out for themselves!
I think wams is an alright school. I'm a student there and somethings i really don't like. For example the new principal will never let students have freedom. She only cares about boring stuff and not extra curricular activities that shold be cared about more than sports teams. There are some things that i like such as band and kids who participate in things. There are too many kids at wams who don't there to learn. Wams also needs more money to buy things.
I am a student at wams. I believe it is a great school. The teachers are wonderful and push us to do our best. Sure, the studesnts have their disagreements and make trouble, but besides that it is the best school ever.
I think West Ashley Middle is a great school, but the busing of students from other schools will have a negative on a great CCSD school. A very strong academic program.
