I agree with the former student, i just got thro with my 9th grade year. Almost all of my friends are in band. And they hardly ever get recognized for the goals they reach, or the scores they get on their competitions. Other than the issue i just stated, i think this school is a good school. The principals handle any situations that the students have. The staff there is wonderful. Ive met quite a few teachers/staff members that are friends with students. And they help them get through all the problems with homework, bullies, etc. In all i think that Weatherford Ninth Grade Center is a nice school compared to others

It would be nice if the WISD in general supported the fine arts/band programs as much as they do the athletic programs. It would also be great to see a higher level of parental involvement. And example is WISD has a marching band of approx 155 students yet at the monthly Band Fan Club meetings we might have 20 parents, and thats including 2 parents from one household, so maybe 9 of the children are represented by parents/guardians.

Well I am a student that has just completed my year at the 9th grade center. One of my many complaints is the unchallenging pre-ap program. The program is designed to challenge the students and be harder than the regular courses. Well I must say that these courses were not difficult at all and I was not challenged by the work or topics covered. Also the parent involvement level was minimum and I do not belive the parents helped much at all. This are some of my complaints for this school.
