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 didnt like it that much being a student there for 2 years. The teachers were ok but it didnt feel like home during my 8th grade year as much as it did my 7th.
Why pay money for private school? WSMS is the best middle school in Shelby County. My son is far more prepared for high school than any of his friends in private school.
This school is beautiful, the teachers are great, and I feel very safe! I definately think more people should look at WSMS
I love the school! I am an 8th grader in the optional program. It feels like one big family! Really good music program.
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...
I love WSMS! Im in the 7th Grade and there is soo much to do! I am in the Concert Band and its soo much fun. My favorite teacher, Mr. B.Jones, teaches Pre-Algebra great! All of the teachers do! This school is way better than my last school where people made fun of you and stuff. No body does that this year! --A.B
I'm a 8th grader at WSMS! I think it is a wonderful school! My teachers are Mrs.Morton,Ms.Porterfield,Ms.Neely,and Mr.Jackson! I am also a Basketball player and in choir at WSMS!We have alot of parents supporting our school!
I go WSMS and its the best. I am in the 7th grade. My teacher Mr.Willard is everyone's favorite. Mrs.Law is very helpful for math and I have so many other great teachers. I hope I end the year with great success.
I am an 8th grader at WSMS and I really am enjoying my experience at this wonderful school. Mrs. Clapsadle is the most amazing science teacher in the world and all of the teachers are outstanding in their area of teaching.
i recently moved from WSMS to some school in arizona. white station middle is the best school i've been to. i would like to thank my teacher mr shaw for everything he's done for me.
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 is a very good school.the librarian,Mrs,Emily Squires ,is very helpful to students and parents.the teachers really care about their students.
White Station Middle is the best school for me. The faculty and staff are wonderful. I had a wonderful math teacher, Mr. A. Shaw, and a marvelous english teacher, Ms. J. Scott. Thank you WSMS!
White Station is a wonderful school with challenging teachers and a fabulous performing arts program.
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.
I think this is one of the best schools. All the teachers make sure students ge there on time, The principals handle discipline correctly. I think this is a safe school. I think all parents should enroll there students here.
