The good: Supported Arts, Efficient Staff, Reasonable Policies, Focus on learning. The mediocre: The building and grounds could be maintained better. The Bad: The quality of teachers could be improved, probably with better pay/benefit packages.

I love that the new 6th grade wing of the school was built for easy transition of students to a middle school atmosphere. Breaking the large size student enrollment into mini schools with their own counselors and Vice Principal worked out really well last year. Looking forward to 7th grade now.

My school is the best school. The teachers are very helpful and go above and beyond to make sure that you learn. They give the students just enough freedom to make it feel like you are not in elementary school but they do not allow you to run loose either. The smiles that the students have on their faces when they enter the building say it all.

Let me start by saying if you want your kids to play football there get ready For favoritism. This school has the most I've ever seen. My son is 8th grader who's playing sense 6 years old. The head Coach has told him numerus times get ready to play And then hardly sees the field. Don't let your kid be humiliated by the school.

I came to this school in 6th grade. I had a great year and made great grades. Now i am in 7th grade and i have great teachers. they all are fair, and usely very nice. The only thing that made me give the school a 4 star and not a 5 star, is that i hate the dress code. I will live, but if one thing they could change it would be to a wear almost whatever you want. Besides the dress code, i think this school is great.

WWMS has overall been an okay school.Rica needs to be more for doing homework. Children that are in extracurricular activities have nights were they get home late. And need to get adequate sleep. Not up half the night doing homework.

I have a sixth grader that attends WWMS. This has been a great beginning of the school year for him. I was worried that the transition would be difficult for him. The teachers keep in constant contact with my husband and me. They seem to go over and beyond the call of duty. I have never experienced such positive communication within a school. Administration answers all of our questions and only wants the best for our students. They help motivate the students to do their best and succeed. Thank you WWMS!

This is a school that needs some hands on direction. Even thou my experience has been better than last year, the lack of support, rudeness from the staff, complete disorganization, and poor management are areas of improvement that seem to be ignored by the current principal. It was interesting to see the principal running for major how can he manage our city if he can hardly manage his school? If the school will have more people like Assistant Principal Mr. Akins and less people like Assistant Principal Mr. Bannach we will be able to see some improvement. In the meantime, teachers get burned out, parents get frustrated and our children pay the consequences. Want to change our city?... start making some changes with the school. Where to start? Start talking to your staff and your customers (the parents and children).

West Wilson Middle is a great school. I have two grandsons that attend there and they both love it. The teachers care and are good at what they do. Thank you!

The biggest problem is the paerents lack of involvement. The parents think their children can do no wrong, and the teachers are 'out to get' their little angles. The parents complain that the teachers are only concerned with dress code, if the parents enforced it, the teachers could teach.....

I had 3 boys go to this school. One survived it 3 years of bullying and teasing an effort by the school to stop it. The other 2 could not handle it and went from great students to failing completely. The admin were unpleasant, the principle was a ghost, they spent all their time fussing about dress code, they never returned call, the teaching was abysmal. I can only hope that now that the Principal from Lakeview has taken over he can turn it around. I hated having children at this school.

I have found that this school is certainly one of the better schools with which I have been involved . The teachers really care and go out of their way to help ensure that my child succeeds. I think some parents refuse to accept that as children grow and mature, so should their level of responsibility. I stress this as well to my child. The teachers and administrative staff have only the students best interest at heart. Sometimes this means incorporating ideas and policies that doesn't appeal to everyone. Parents must realize that their children are no longer in safety net of elementary schools. Students must be educated for the real world as well as the 'three R's.'

I sent them a request for records since I was enrolling my son in homeschool (7th grade) and I just received a letter from the Superintendent's office saying that I have one day to show that I requested the records and enrolled him in homeschool or they will take me to Juvenile Court! I even checked with the school a month ago to see if everything was okay and they said oh yes, have a great year! Do not send your child to this school. I took my son out of this school for just about the same reasons as everyone else have expressed and this was just another bad experience I have had and it has made me even more resolved than before to continue to homeschool.

This school is the absolutely worst school I have ever been involved in. My normally high achieving daughter completely withdrew and was unable to function in this school. The teachers are uncaring, the language and behavior of students is out of control. After one year I had to take her out and homeschool her. After a year of homeschooling and very expensive therapy she is finally back to her old self. My son is due to go next year but I will be homeschooling him through the middle grades as well. I won't even subject him to this place.

I would not recommend West Wilson Middle to anyones child. Most of the time you can not get to the principal. And if you do, it is days after you left him several messages. The teachers, they bring personal issues into the class room and discuss with the students. So what exactly are they teaching. As for a foreign language, you would have better luck teaching your child yourself. I have never heard of the amount of complaints from 1 school as I have from this one.

I am truly not happy with the teachers and the office staff. Communication is horrible! And unfortunatly my child seems to get the blame for that. I do not feel as though the teachers truly care about these kids nor does the prinicipal. so where does that leave us? Pretty much at their mercy. my daughter will be out next year, but my son is right behind her in a couple. I can only pray things change by then!

My son recently brought home his report card that included all A's except for one F in a class that he never received anything lower than a B. We were not informed that he was having trouble until we received his report card. I tried to reach the principal, but only found gate-keepers. When he finally returned my call, it was clear that he was preoccupied. His response was 'That's good to hear. I'm glad everything worked out.' He clearly didn't listen to a word I said. How can we as parents hold our children accountable if the teacher neither communicates with parents nor updates the students online homework site? I hold my son completely responsible for his grades. However my son was clearly handicapped when we, as parents didn't know he needed some intervention.

The major problem with not only this school, but the entire county, is that the dress code (which the teachers cannot even interpret correctly) is placed above the education of the students. Major lapses in communication with parents would be the second. The administration is useless, rude, and does not have the best interest of the children's education in mind in most cases. Encouragement of the children and enthusiasm is nonexistent.

The school is a nice school with good teachers, however communication to the parents could be better.

I do not put any trust into the administration. They are rude and do not want to hear about problems or concerns that you may have. The homework is rididculous. This school needs some help.

This school has a bad habit of loosing important documents from your child's school records, repeatedly, and then inconveincing the parents by threatening to not let your child back in school without a new copy of what they lost in the first place. They've done this 2 years in a row with me. They take payments for checks that didn't go thru, then then re-cash the check and cost you 3 times what the original check was for and say 'too bad' about the added expense on you, the parent. The teachers are mean, and unresponsive to your child's needs or questions. There is uncontrolled bullying going on and no one is doing anything about it. The teachers look the other way. And there is no behavior control on the buses. There is very little notification about extracurricular activities until sign-up is already past. I can't wait until my son is done with this.

This is my daughters second year at this school and although the vice principals will do their best not to let you speak to the principal you can get past them and when you do, youll find a very caring concerned man who cares about the students and the school. West Wilson has some issues with teachers and vice principals as does every school, but for the most it is a good school and I feel that my daughter is getting a good education and learning life skills she will need in the future.

My expierence here was an uninterested Principal and at least one vice principal. From what I understand, the one VP you could count to to handle problems is no longer here. The school has addressed some of the problems...time will tell how well. As a former student at this school, and now a parent of a former student with more children on their way to this school, I can only pray the administration will change in the next few years.
