WMSG is on the right track being a faith based school that tries to focus on character building but fail to have all of the needed components. The teachers may appear to care but most are very young and inexperienced with little to no supervision. School culture is not near its best. There are some documented challenges but the administration is in denial and refuse to examine paperwork, policies, and procedures to make improvements and provide appropriate oversight. Accountability is not practiced but the community should not be surprised because it has been all over the news how authority has been abused and administration stands by and allows it to continue. Let's become supporters to help make our school better.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
