I would rate my time at this school a three out of ten because the academic parts of this school isnt bad, it is the students that give this school a bad reputation school will also rarely provide help for bulling.
As a parent I must say that I am very dissappointed with WMS ..Our daughter went there and was constantly bullied. Well here we are four years later and our son goes though the same thing, everyday there is some sort of problems and he is being punished for protecting himself.It is very upsetting to have to go through this and we will as well be pulling our son out of this school..Last year he went to the county spelling bee as well as was ont he Presidential Honor roll. Now in the 7th grade everything has gone down hill. We spend more time having to worry about our sons safety then anything,.how can you concentrate on school when you deal with mean kids all the time..I have had my fill and will not allow it anymore...He even had the bus driver making racial slurs to him..So he never rode the bus again. I would rather have him on home studies. The teachers don't have time to teach that is what we are told and the principal and his staff don't get it...
I am so pleased with Washington Middle School. The Staff is what makes the school. My daughter started very close to the end of year, but the whole school INCLUDING students made her feel so comfortable she fit right in. The teachers are all very interested in the students well being from personal to academics. My daughter loves this middle school. I also like the dress code. I also notice even though its a high student volume THE STAFF has an excellent hold of keeping students flowing and getting them to class. I VERY PLEASED with this school. One other thing its the parent involvement that helps this school run well. Washington Middle School is a great school for your middle school aged student to get started for High School.
