My son just finished 7th grade at WSMS. We could not have been more pleased with the teachers, fellow students, and administration. This is a wonderful school.

Our daughter is completing sixth grade in the Optional Program (advanced) and we could not be happier. She is also in CLUE (Creative Learning in a Unique Environment) class. The pace is fast, but many of the teachers are caring and available for tutoring during lunch and after school if the children need extra instruction or clarification. They email the parents and students all the upcoming assignments a week ahead of time, so it's easy to get a head start on homework if there is a conflict with an extra curricular activity. Parents are highly involved with the school. Great diversity at this school. In addition to the optional program for advanced students (must test in to be accepted), there is also a traditional program and a "district plus" program for those students living in district who did not test into optional but desire somewhat more of a challenging workload. I have been very impressed with the dedication of most of the teachers. My daughter is thriving at this school.

I am a 7th grade student at WSMS, and I love the school!! There are many activities/sports to get involved in, and the students are really nice. As a student, I know that the work is hard. This is only because the teachers want to teach the students everything they need to know.

This is my first year at wsms I am very unhappy with the results that I received from a HIP teacher this year. For those of you that don't know hip is hearing impaired. This teacher went as far well to far .She embarrassed my child in class saying he smelled so bad that it made her throw up. My son did not want to return to this school but it is the only one in the school district. Personally I think she should be barred from teaching. To this day she has yet to apologize to me and my son. if she would go this far with a disabled child who know how far she will go.I thank god that my child is able to communicate to me other wise you will never Know. PEOPLE PLEASE IF YOU HAVE A HIP CHILD I ENCOURAGE YOU TO TALK TO YOUR CHILD DAILY TO KEEP THEM SAFE!!!!

Im sorry, but I am amazed by so many of the comments made on this board that claim to be from students at this school. Just by reading them, I can tell they are written by middle school students, but by adults, maybe teachers or administrators who work at this school. These comments are written in the style and tone of an adult not a young teenager. Its a shame these writers can not let the school stand on its own merits, let the truth out there. Every school can not be 100% perfect, the students can not be watched 100% of the time and there will be students who will fly under the radar and avoid getting caught after bad behavior. There will be bad apples and they will know how to hide their bullying activities and have cohorts who will stick up for them, as they deny they did not do something...

I am a seventh grader at WSMS. I am in the optional program, and I believe that WSMS is an AMAZING SCHOOL. All of the teachers are outstanding, everything is ALWAYS organized, and the students are all very friendly and nice. There are rarely any fights, Mr. Page, an OUTSTANDING principle, makes sure of that. They have many clubs you can join. Some people say in here that the kids are all very snobby and so-and-so, but I am here to assure that very rarely do you meet kids who talk about how rich and such they are. I, for instance, am NOT like that, and I have a lot of friends that aren't, too. Another thing. WSMS doesn't have "cliques". Of course, they have the populars, and the weird kids, as all middle schools do, but everyone is very friendly and open. It will be VERY hard to NOT make a friend here, everyone is so kind. You would LOVE this school, just like I do!

I am a student at WSMS.I love and hate it.The teacher are amazing,but it seems like some of the teachers do not care ore try hard enough for the safety. For example,I was bullied at lunch and hit in the face. There was a bruise on my jawline. I showed the assistant principal and explained to him what happened,but the other student got a slap on the wrist.I get bullied a lot and I tell the teachers,but nothing happens. other than that WSMS has a go educational program,but not a good student family.

0 We had to yank our son out after the first quarter. He was bullied constantly and had all his supplies stolen and even had his lunch money stolen. They also took and broke his glasses. When I tried to get information on their so called parent connect system NO one would help me. Son also stated that in one of his classes the kids would fight and scream the whole time and he could not even hear what the teacher was saying! Very out of control and no obedience.

I'm a parent of a 6th grader at WSMS, and I have to say, at one month into middle school, my family and I are very pleased with what we've seen from the school. The principal Mr. Page is outstanding, and very supportive of the teachers. I am very happy with the challenge she is facing, and look forward to learning more with her. They recently made the decision to merge Memphis City Schools with Shelby County schools. i am not happy with that for two reasons: Shelby County scores are based on a smaller segment than MCS, so they look better even when schools are not really better, and the more wealthy neighborhoods also seem to be the most prejudiced neighborhoods. I don't want my daughter attending school with snobbish kids. Diveristy is necessary to success. She's great where she is. WSMS has outstanding teachers, and parental involvement.

I am a seventh grader at WSMS and I have to say: This is an amazing school. I have found great lifelong friends here. I love Spartans! It's far from your stereotypical middle school. Any, if at all, bullying issues are quickly taken care of and most kids at school are not in cliques, just groups of people who are friends because they like each other. Warning, though: the curriculum is really challenging and you'll learn a lot here, but it's hard work.

When you first walk in .it s as if you can almost feel the difference .the teachers are all great and seem to have the children s best interest at heart Expectation and goals are set high; I think this alone makes a vast difference in the behavior of the Students and may be seen in every aspect of the school, from the individual teachers who offer after school tutoring, to the efficient staff members, down to the parent participation.

I'm a student at WSMS and I love it! I'm in the 'traditional' program and it's only a name. I could be in the optional program, because my scores are very high, but I do not want to be considered as a snob or RUDE!!! WSM is a place where anyone can learn! The teachers love their students and wants everyone to succeed. If the optional teachers would learn a little RESPECT, people would have nothing but good things to say about the school in these reviews!

I am an Optional student at White Station Middle School (WSMS). Compared to most Memphis City Schools, WSMS is the best choice. The school has wonderful TCAP scores, and great reviews. Most of the students seem to love it. So why not send your child there? WSMS has a difficult Optional program to enter. The administrators only look at the English and Math sections of TCAP when making their decision. Children who excel in science or social studies are completely over looked. If you do manage to enroll your child into the Optional program, beware: your child may become a discriminative snob. Not discriminating against race or religion, but against those in the Traditional program. Upon entering the Optional program, even the nicest of people begin to become haughty. If you overlook the fact that the administration ignores some students who shine and students who discriminate against those in not as prestigious programs, White Station Middle School is a good school.

I recently moved from WSMS to a school in Pennsylvania called Stroudsburg Junior High School. The school I go to now isn't bad but you'll never meet such great friends like the ones you'll make in this school.The new bulding is great but like all schools it has problems too. I was in Optional and had some friends in traditional and they sometimes don't get treated fairly among friends and teachers, but it's just some of the snobby people in optional who do that.Most of them aren't like that. We can fix that though. If you ever move you'll really miss this school and the friends you make!

I think that the snobbery expressed in the two previous posts is a perfect example of what makes this such a BAD school with a focus on cliques, rivalry, snobbery, and fostering a false sense of superiority among Optional students, rather than focusing on learning. The tone in these two previous posts says it all: this is a school for students who want to live under the delusion that they are somehow better than other students because of which program they are in. The faculty should really do something to bring these students together, rather than fostering the apartheid mentality as they do.

I started going to White Station Middle in the seventh grade and am currently in the eighth grade. I love my school sooo much because no matter who you are, you are bound to find some of the best friends you will ever have in your lifetime. Just the same, the teachers are very pushy and help you prepare for whatever it is that you want to do in life. My friends and I have competitions to see who will get a better grade! In fact, we actually consider being called a nerd a compliment. Private schools- sure- better name and all but the reason that our scores are not as good as theirs is because of the Traditional section. The Optional Section is really what you are going for. Once you get there, it will take a lot to stop you from whatever you want to do.

I love this school. I'm an optional 8th grader, and all my teachers this year and last year really enjoy their jobs. If the traditional kids cared at ALL, this school would be so much better. I think the new building has really helped rid of all the 'gangster' conduct. It's hard to be a 'gangster' in the nicest looking school in Memphis. I am moving on to the high school, and I am hoping they will build such a nice school there for that reason alone.

WSMS is a very good school and is an excellent learning enviroment. My Daughter love it. It's actually a complement for the students to call each other a nerd lol. My Daughter would actually compete with her friends to see who would get the highest grade on an assignment. Learning was actually fun for her there. What more would you want?

I am a new parent at WSMS this year with a sixth grader. I have found WSMS to be a wonderful school, from the Principal, Principal Assistants, Teachers, and Students. This is a wonderful school to have your child attend. Communication is the biggest thing I like, you are always up to date with what is going on and when. We give the school a 5 star as it is one of the best in Memphis...

WSMS has an excellent academic program. It's very clear that the entire faculty and administrative staff are committed to cultivating an environment that encourages the kids to achieve excellence. In addition, the school's symphonic band program is wonderful and provides a supportive, fun learning environment that has also produced some very talented musical ensembles. The level of parental involvement at WSMS is outstanding, as indicated by the other reviews here.

White Station Middle Schools is in my opinion the best school that my child has been in. She recently completed the 8th grade. I have another daughter starting there this fall. The teachers and faculty of the school are very demanding of the students, but that is because they truly care for the kids. Teachers and staff are awesome! Mr. Michael William (the choir instructor) has been the most valuable person in my daughter s life! She really blossomed under his guidance in so many ways (not just vocally). He loves all the kids he works with and it is so evident! He is a one of a kind teacher and White Station is benefiting from it!

We are not officially part of the W.S. parent group, as yet, but are hoping to be one soon, this fall, with a daughter in 7th grade. We must commend the school for its assistance in our relocation to Tennessee, by guiding us in a clear manner on how to get admitted into the school's optional program. Kudos to Mrs. Blassinggame, the optional school co-ordinator, who has guided us from day 1 of our decision to get admittance here. She clearly outlined what paperwork was needed and suggested we get our daughter privately evaluated again for math if we were keen on enriched academics. Later, when we visited Memphis last week, she worked closely with us, told us what apartments the school bus caters to, suggested we call the transpo dept to get a wider view of the bus route and patiently answered all our queries on the school activities. Her clarity and southern hospitality has us overwhelmed,we eagerly await to join the team.

White Station Middle is probably one of the best experiences my child has ever had in his educational experience. The administration is very stern, but they care about the kids - and the kids know it. My son was in the standard program and learned a lot. He was not treated differently just because he was not in the Optional Program. All the teachers were good - one in particular. The choir teacher, Mr. Williams, was by far the highlight of his two years there. This man is a teacher that every parent would want for their child. His love and devotion for the kids is evident in all he did for them. He always put them first, never himself. They sounded better than many high school choirs I have heard. White Station Middle ... thank you!
