J.M. Weatherwax High School Both of my children have graduated from this high school and have earned Master's Degrees. This high school offers more Advanced Placement courses than any other school in the county. It's students achieve higher college placement scores than any other high school in the area. The school has just implemented a one on one technology program where each student is issued an RT Surface tablet. The school is also home to a Skill Center where students from other schools in the county can attend. It has out standing activities as well as an extensive athletic program which students can join. It is an outstanding school.

As a previous employee I can say that everything you will read in these reviews is sad, but true.

I am highly disappointed in the school...my daughter has been enduring bullying and harassment since entering the high school as a freshman. We have been in numerous times to discuss this matter with the appropriate staff. Their response has been that she needs to learn to ignore it and that they cannot follow the harasser around all day. Are you serious? A child can only take so much bullying and harassment before they snap. I am now in the process of filing a complaint because they have allowed a harassing student to return as a student at the school after already 2 expulsions. Our children should have the right to a safe environment to receive an education, this is not the case here. I'm working on having my children withdrawn from the school district to have their education home-based where they will feel safe and be able to concentrate on their education.

Alot of students don't pay attention or put off their work and then when they are failing then the parents want to know why. maybe their kids should go to school of not mess around when theyre there because i have raised my grades and im just the average student and there are many opportunities to raise your grade like the after school program every day except half days and fridays. which the teachers help you and if you need quieter areas they give you that..or help they help youu! its not hard and its not the teachers fault students fail!

I am a parent with a wonderful spouse who is a step parent to my children- we have consistently tried to develop and maintain relationships with my child's teachers but to no avail. It should not be so difficult to get updates from the teachers on how our child is doing and what we can do to help him reach his potential. I almost feel that since I am not the custodial parent that my concerns and attempts to 'reach out' have not been taken seriously. It has been a frustrating experience trying to get consistency on any level. Although I am sure there are many wonderful teachers who have every good intention, we however, have not had much luck. It's very unfortunate and we don't have the same experiences with our other children's teachers who attend other schools.

I have never in all my years dreamed that I would have to see such horrible conditions. This school shows no respect for the students nor the parents. They would just assume to let some children fall without help and encourgement! The staff- all though not all are the same. I found very few staff here that were about the students and learning instead of detentions and unfair treatment. The is a great divided line between the care for the students and what just make this school look good!

This school is not the best. The principals and higher authority are not welcoming and seem to care more about the appearance of the school, rather than the children themselves. Leaving many behind in understanding and safety. Although the higher staff may be less than satisfactory, the teachers themselves are wonderful and try their best with what they're given. Special thanks to Ms. Portmann. She's a wonderful and understanding teacher.

Mrs. Scharder is the best teacher at the school. She cares about all of her students achieving something in life. She is awesome. This school really cares about its students.
