Very positive environment. Children are encouraged to lift one another up.
My school has been very supportive with student activities and challenges. I have found administration very approachable.
West Jackson Middle has seen vast improvement over the past few years and is now truly a 10 out of 10 school. I brag about this school to other parents quite frequently.
No one has rated WJMS in over 3 years so a lot has changed including the principal. My student is starting the 7th grade there in a few days. He had a wonderful 6th grade year at WJMS. The team of teachers he had came together and had one website. On this website parents could "subscribe" and get e-mail updates on what was going on in the classroom. My son is the typical middle school kid and would come home and say he didn't have anything to study for. I would inform him that I had checked the team website (I had also received an e-mail when it was posted) and that he had a test Thursday on the Earth, Moon and Stars. I also would inform him that the study guide he "left in his locker" was uploaded on the website and that he needed to print it and study it! His grades were great this year b/c I was able to e-mail the teachers any issues and stay on him about studying. I dreaded middle school b/c I worried about possible communication issues but found WJMS to be FANTASTIC with communication. Also, as a side note the band program is one of the BEST in the state! We moved here 4 years ago from up North so we have been in very different schools and are very thankful for WJMS!
