The principal seems only interested in doing the minimum. Olympia school district identified many highly capable students but the principal doesn't want to implement a single program to help these students to excel. All he concerns is to keep everyone ordinary. School districts announced programs before the new school year but when the school year start in fall 2015, all the promises were gone and not a single word to explain it! Terrible!
some teachers are good, others are not. When I came to the parents meeting, math teach told me that "your son is doing great!" then nothing more to tell me. Sounds good? but I want to know how he learns, how to improve? My son is a big reader, but language art teacher struggle to tell me why he doesn't get good performance and grade in class.
Two kids currently attending (have since 2012) - no issues. Strong academic environment. Kids do not report bullying. Clean facilities. Teachers teach....but kids will do as well as their parents invest in them. We are in the military and have lived all over the country and world - this is a good school. If looking to move to Olympia, this is were I'd start.
The bullying rate is so low and if a student or teacher witnesses it we immiediately take action to stop it. The teachers really make an effort to get to know a student and make class fun. Students are really kind and helpful. Washington Middle School is, in my opinion, one of the best schools in Washington and I would recomend it to anyone.
WMS is a great school. Its education thrives and the school also helps the environment because it's a green school! WMS provides after school activities and is well known throughout the area. It has been accepted by well known universities in its music education. Also it has nice teachers that may help you at any cost. If you don't know what to do then just ask a teacher. If you're going to think this would be a nice school, then this is probably the best one for you or your child.
