I want to understand why the kids in 7th and 8th grades do extra credit by doing these "projects." So cutting and pasting paper and gluing things together is an adequate French or History project??? Is this Art class? When I was younger in 5th grade, my extra credit was to review a pertinent article in an encyclopedia or book and write a one page summary. I do not understand how these worthless Art projects are going to assist my children to prepare for college. I also want to know why so many retake exams? So if you get a 30%, then you can retake the same exam? Flunk the kids. They will learn to study next time.

This school is horrible. My child is not learning and has some bad teachers this year. The worst one is his 7th grade math teacher. Her teaching skills are sub par and my child does not understand any of the information she gives. My child has told me that they have been left in the classroom alone and the class is full of chaos--kids throwing paper, yelling, screaming, and little to no learning. I have complained but nothing has been done. I do not understand why a teacher like this is allowed to continue to mess up children.

I've been a teacher at this school for 6 years and have enjoyed it very much. The student body is very diverse here and that's one of the best things I like. Students from foreign cultures, and their parents, value education and treat teachers with respect and reverence in some cases, if you can believe that. We have a fabulous reading initiative program going on here that is top-notch and our fine arts programs are thriving like no other. I would gladly send my kids to this school and as a matter of fact, I have. No one school is perfect and no school is a perfect fit for everyone. My advice to you about this school and any other is, do your homework. Research the area, visit the school, attend a PTO meeting, volunteer a couple of hours to get a feel for it all, and make an informed choice. Good luck and GO WILDCATS!

The bigest issue of this school is students misbehavior and bullying. Most of the students disrespect teachers in terms of disobedience and rudeness. However, the school administration is unable to manage students bihavior issues to promote safe and effective teaching and learning. Some students remain in iss during the all school year while teachers spend more class time dealing with students misbehavior rather than to teach students.

I am an 8th grade Wunderlich student, and this school has MAJOR problems. They will give you a detention for having your shirt untucked- once. Some of my teachers don't even really care about what we're learning or the fact that I had a panic attack in class and she said to "get over it, it's not a big deal." The assistant principals encourage you to tell them about your issues, but then they'll do absolutely nothing about it, and put you in the wrong. Misogyny, depression, and bullying are the biggest issues in our school. Academics? We're a laughingstock! Not to mention also that the school places the athletics over everything else, since they never want for money like the Fine Arts groups. If you can afford or manage to send your child somewhere else, DO SO, unless you want your child to have silent lunch every week, no time to be a kid, and the overall sense of failure that this school implants into the minds of the students. This school will make you feel worthless. So please, please, don't send your kids here.

I can guarantee the parents who complain about their child being reprimanded for "insignificant things", that if your child is in and out of ISS on a regular basis - we at the school need more support in correcting their actions. The students at this school are wonderful (most of them), the staff works hard (most of them) and the parents are very supportive (most of them). I only wish that we could provide more time, more money and more resources to the betterment of these children.

I think the teachers are awesome but the administrators are way to strict. My son gets ISS almost every other week from stuff like talking too much or picking up a marker off the floor. He got ISS for using an unauthorized restroom?! Isnt he missing valuable lessons by sitting in ISS all day? I can understand if he is doing something to harm him or someone else but how strict is too strict? We cant wait for school to be over and move on to high school!

As a parent we need to reflect on ourselves. As parents we need to understand that school is a place for education and learning. Teachers and administrators rely heavily on parents to do our parts and teach the basics to our children which is RESPECT for the individual. Our children are a reflection of us the parents. We only get what we put in as parents therefore it does not matter what school your child goes to or learns from. It is what we as parents learn to expect what we accept from our children. Yes, the school is strict but fair. But in the real world we have laws, rules, policies and procedures that we must follow as adults. So why do we expect any different from our children. What message are we sending our children? Wunderlich needs more parent involvement then you can truly see the value in what any school has to offer. Our children are there to learn and if your child can not do so then maybe it time for you to find a school that is suitable for your child and what you will accept from what you expect from your child.

First of all, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But if you really want to know what Wunderlich or any school is like .. you need to spend some time there. Yes, the administration is tough... as a parent... I love it. How are my kids doing? Both (7th and 8th grade this year) have had great experiences at this school. The academics are just as tough as any school in the district, they can do sports or lots of extracurricular clubs etc. Ironically, we are pretty much a minority at this school as it has a small Anglo population ... and many of our friends or neighbors get extremely nervous about the school but once their kids attend the school ... have a real change of heart. I like that they don't put up with 'helicopter' parents and have a zero-tolerence for BS.

The school hands out suspensions for just about anything. The faculty is very strict which I believe makes it touch to feel as if you're really at school. I'm glad I don't have to spend any more years at the school as the the school is more worried about scores than the students.

I can't even offer a rating for this school, that's how bad I think it is. I've read all of the postings here and I've had the same issues with my boys that other parents have experienced. The only solution these teachers and principals seem to have is to give suspension, whether in school or out side of school, and while it may make the school officials look good on paper (for taking care of the problem child), that punishment remains on the child's record throughout all of their school days until graduation. That's going over board. Suspension used to be given for truancy, smoking and/or drinking and drugs, but now it's given left and right for stupid things such as talking in class. NO I'M NOT KIDDING! It's time to remove your kids from this school and home school them so they receive the education you expect them to receive.

The students get silent lunch, meaning they can't talk, laugh, or whistle all lunch period. Math TAKS scores are also low.

Speaking from a parent point of view, I feel like the head administrator at this school is more concern with being in control than what is in the best interest of the students at this school. I did not feel welcome at the school. The morale of the faculty and students is low. Something need to change.

I am speaking as a Wunderlich student, and I would like to say that I do not like this school. The cafeteria is always crowded during lunch, the standardized dress is a little too strict, and I think the school cares more about being a recognized school than the students. So, next year I will be looking forward to going to a new school.

I say that Wunderlich is tryng to get the students to get good grades because they had the TAKS tutorial sessions for extra preperation for the TAKS test, and they have Homework Help. The extracurricular activities is good their too. They have athletic teams, and others too. They also try to get the parents involve also. They have letters sent out for events, PTA, and everything.

I speak as a former student. No Wunderlich is not the richest school in our district but it does have very competative extracurricular organizations including one of the best music departments in the district. There are a few teachers that are, share we say, not exactly loved by the student body but, overall, has supportive staff, both academically and with concern to discipline. The student body has a diverse mix of ethnic backgrounds exposing the students to many cultures hands on through friendship. Overall I believe attending this intermediate school help shape who I am today. A former student

Well, my youngest son will be entering this year as a sixth grader and I am trying to be positive. My two older sons attended Wunderlich and the gym locker room could be and was at times a negative and sometimes dangerous place. The coaches know who will be the real 'trouble' kids. I say 'give more power to the coaches.' They have a much better way of taking care of these situations. They know more about these kids than the Administration even wants to know. The coaches truly care. I know first hand. The principles only escalate the bad situations because they do not want to take the time out to deal with these situations in a constructive manner. It's too much effort. They only suspend them and send them to alternative school. That doesn't help a child nor does it look good on the school.

I feel, for the most part, the teachers are caring and devoted to the kids. I have had an overall good experience working with the teachers. I am not particularly happy or pleased with the administrative staff and/or their attitude toward the students. The approach toward discipline and control is sad. Detention, either after school or in-school, seems to be the immediate response and hard-hand tactics are not always the best approach. Also, I will support the other parent review regarding the security in the locker rooms and the hall lockers. The mindset seems to be, 'oh, well, we can't really do much about it'. This seems to also be the approach to the parking lot and pick-up situation. It is a nightmare getting out of the parking lot and there is rarely any assistance handling traffic control.

I really believe they need to improve their teachers ability to learn to help the children. They shouldn't be made fun of in front of other students. Nor should they be shunned away when they raise they hand for help. I don't believe that it's very appropriate to tell the child when she had a problem and needed help to 'oh figure it out yourself' that was what my child was told. (if you don't want to be a teacher or don't have the patience for it then get out and let someone who does. school should be a place of comfort and help and to grow and learn. Where are these so Highly acclaimed teachers that are suposed to be our mentors. I mean really in this day and age we can't even feel comfortable in our own schools.

First of all, the language arts, science and social studies teachers were simply wonderful and really seemed to care and make an effort on their own, notwithstanding what the school might have offered. I do have 2 major concerns: 1) Under the 504 Federal Modification program, this school has done little, if anything, to accommodate or attempt to accommodate my son and his educational needs and goals; and, 2) the total lack of regard, concern and/or attention to locker theft, particularly in the boys' gym locker area, is deplorable. No one seems to care or bother to correct the problem at all.
