I'm currently an 8th grade student here and I absolutely hate this school. Most of my teachers get off topic often and will even get angry with students for asking questions. A lot of students here act absolutely terrible in the hallways and there is nothing done about it by teachers who or supposedly ''watching'' us. If all students in the class fail a test, the teacher will blame it on them for not studying when the teacher should have been doing a better job at teaching.

I was also a student at Woodrow Wilson and I loved it. All the teachers I had really cared about their students. Leadership is strong. There are bullies in every school no matter where you go.

I was a student here in the 80's. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. We drove by a few months and we noticed a mail truck that had a protection cage on it indicating to me that nothing's changed. I was threatened for my lunch money among others things and I remember several 8th graders proud to be heavy with child. This teachers were at a complete loss to stop bullies and the constant talking in class and disruptions made learning impossible. The French teacher was down right mean. I imagine she was frustrated by the misbehaved students. I was not surprised to see the 2 rating here.

Woodrow Wilson Middle School is a great middle school. Staff and administration are the best in the city. Kids First!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
