Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

WMS has an ineffective protocol for communicating school incidences without persistent involvement of parents. If fights break out where police are called in to break it up, unless there is a weapon, no communication goes home. We rely on the students and parental community. One of the teachers consistently inputs grades in 4-6 weeks late (6 grades input 1 week before marking period ended). Inappropriate personal stories shared by some teachers in class with students. The professionalism of several teachers is lower than educational/county/administrative standards would demand. Highly disappointed in my student's experience at this school - first and last (thank goodness) year there.

I have been at Wildwood since 2011 and it has changed a lot over the years. Since 2012, school has been a terrible experience. There are fights at least once a week, graffiti everywhere, horrible teachers and administration, and they make the good kids suffer what the bad kids do. There are also rules that very little students listen to and we almost never do anything fun. If I would give advice to parents that are thinking about transferring their kids here, my recommendation is: No. Some of the teachers do not get any teaching done, and on the Westest students do poorly on it.

Not real impressed. Apparently many of the teachers(at least in 7th grade) yell at students or to get control of the class. Fights are common in the halls...usually out of control by the time adults arrive. I agree with the reviewer that said it is known amoung educators as the worst school in the county. Hopefully next year will show improvement...first 2 weeks of school schedules were so messed up that students spent hours in 1 or 2 classes.

My son is in 7th grade! I have had nothing but problems with this school and bullying!! He has had is cell phone stolen and I had to play detective and get it back...they were useless! I went to the police about the incident and they said and I quote "Wildwood is the worse school in Jefferson county for bullying and we NEVER find anything out until the parents come to us." When I spoke w/the head principle about my concerns her response was " I look at it as the glass being half empty or half full" meaning half the kids were good and the other half not so much! REALLY!!! My son is suspended for 5 days for defending himself against a bully who has an accomplice who has been taking his pencils, yes he has told thr teacher....her response after telling her for two days "let me know if he does it again, I will write him up" After discussing this w/the assistant principal she said "I don't think taking a pencil from someone is bullying" This school is a joke....I am not the only parent who feels this way! Do yourself a favor and take your child to Harpers Ferry!! Just for the record under theWVDOE...bullying is stealinf or hiding the belongings of the affected student.....a pencil!!

Students are challenged to do their best! Most of the teachers here are approachable, and effective in motivating creativity in and outside the classroom. Communication between home and school proves beneficial for my student. Overall, the atmosphere at Wildwood Middle School is very inviting and professional.

The teachers are kind and care greatly about the students' needs. Many people participate in painting the walls of the school of different cultures, which is an excellent way to teach about other countries and to welcome all kinds of people. The PTO is very strong and does a great job, as well.
