I have been so satisfied with my son's education at Whitefish Bay Middle School. With their emphasis on the "whole child," they push for high achievement with all their students. I have easy and instant access to my son's homework and grading through their website and the teachers are always responsive to my inquiries. My son has told me he feels very safe when he's at school, and I can see every kid is valued there. And his education is well-rounded and satisfying to him, and I believe it will prepare him well for college and beyond.

This is a wonderful school. Excellent-- we are really grateful for the academic background it gave our child. I'd like to see the arts grow so that they and balance the sometimes high-pressure academics. If Whitefish Bay has a deficit, it is in the arts. These are needed to allow students to fully develop expressive and flexible thinking skills.

Whitefish Bay School District achieved the highest ACT scores in the state last year. 26.6 for a public school is beyond outstanding. The path a student takes to achieve this score is by going through WFB Middle school. The best score are achieved by the BEST schools. WFB is THE VERY BEST!

Whitefish Bay Middle School is a great place to learn! The teachers and students are very energized, and ready for the day. We have a great Student Council, and a fantastic advisor. The teachers act like they want to be there, and make it fun. The principal is very fun, and knows most of the students. STAR is a great way to start the day. Games, and talking about how we are is important. Physical Education is something kids want to do, because the teachers know what they are doing. Like I said, all the teachers are positive. The education we are getting here is top notch. Can't get any better. Teachers respect us, and know we can always do better. They do push us, but it's good for us. WFBMS is a great place!

We are so pleased with the Middle School. Students are treated respectfully and are given a great deal of responsibility. The teachers go out of their way to make the 6th graders feel comfortable and they are fun! The secretary is super friendly (and helpful) and the Principal is outgoing in a very friendly way. She seems to want the kids to succeed, learn and have fun. The atmosphere is very different than it was at Cumberland Elementary. I have a feeling it's going to be a great experience for my child! Last weekend she was bummed that she didn't have school for three days, so they must be doing a lot of things right!

This is what a school should be! The principal has outstanding leadership skills and that then reflects on the teachers and staff. Every adult has a smile on their face, is nice, kind and goes out of their way to make you comfortable. You never get an attitude from the office staff with your requests or questions. Like night and day from Cumberland. The district should use this school as a model for the rest of the district.

It is a great school; nice teachers, good quality, and all that jazz. But there is one little problem. The classes are painfully boring. Teachers don't manage class time well, but we learn a lot anyways. I would still recommend it.

When I think of Whitefish Bay Middle School, I think of opportunity and learning. They are almost always equipped with new technology, and the staff make sure that the students are never left behind! Most of the teachers here at Whitefish Bay end up staying for all of their career and many of them have master degrees! Also, WFBMS offers many opportunities for the students to get involved in sports and social activities. There are two dances and two/three socials per year and you can participate in as many as 5 sports per year! Whitefish Bay Middle School is definetly an awesome school!
