Honestly I go to this school, I have for the past 2 years. SOME of the teachers are good, some are not so much. Some of the teachers only give us 1 paper for the ENTIRE class period. Other teachers are strict, so when were confused about it were scared to ask. Honestly this isn't the best school. The kids (a lot of them) don't act their age. They act like 25 year olds at a party. Not only do teachers need to get more involved but also the parents should to.

this is the worst school I have ever had to put my children in to.

WCMS is truly the 'Pride of the Shenandoah Valley'. At WCMS the teachers care and are supportive of all students. Yes, there have been problems with test scores, but that is working its way out as teachers and administration are coming together for the good of the students. WCMS teachers and administration are fixed on the mission of preparing students for high school, high test results, and putting WCMS on the map of great schools--an award winning school! And every year it keeps getting better and better!

Great teachers. Students are receiving a quality education. The only people who don't like it are the one's with problem children. It's part of the 'it's everyone else's fault' society.

WCMs is awesome. The teachers are cool, and the education is PURRfect. The building is only old because its been around for so long. That shouldnt even matter anyways. WCMS is and always will be the best school Ive been to.

Yes, the building is old, but that's taxes, not teachers. The leadership is very good and most of the teachers are serious about the mission. It is a safe school with NO drug problem. The staff does care and it shows!!!

I'm in 7th grade and I think Warren County Middle School is a wonderful school. Most Teachers are willing to help the children when we are in trouble. I'm in Honors Classes, In Journalism classes, and I've was in several clubs. Its the parents that don't get involved. My teachers on the Puma team have asked many times before for parents to get involved with our school. We send newsletters home every month so there is no way they don't know what we are doing. Warren County Middle School is a hardworking school with teachers who are PURR-FECT!

I am so dissapointed with this school, the teachers, and the counselor my daughter had really seemed to just not care. Talked to the counselor twice, she only recommended talking to the teachers. I couldn't even get the teacher's to call much less email me back. Only one teacher on the Bengal team actually had any interaction with me, Mrs. Smedley. She is the only one who even faithfully used schoolnotes.com which was the only way I could keep track of hwk assingments because project sheets are non-exsistant. The Principal tries but obviously cannot control his own school.

I am a seventh grade student at WCMS and I could not be happier at another school than I am at Warren County. I've been going to Warren County Public Schools since kindergarden. I am a cheerleader, an honor student, and been student of the month four times. I am inrolled in a journalism class, and on the school newspaper. So if you say something to me about how our school and how it is 'so poor,' I will stand up against you. I couldn't love my school any more than I do now.

This poor school is in need of some TLC. The walls are falling down around the imcompetent teachers and administration. The discipline policy is nonexistant - anything goes in this school - and it shows with poor attitudes of the teachers and students. Stay away from this entire county schools system. Be prepared to home school, or private school your children if you want them to succeed in the real world.
