School Reviews

a. poor b. very available most of the of time, although not that many things to choose from c. cant recall anyone getting any kind of award for athletics d.very poor and dirty e. only time a parent was there honestly was if a child got suspended or parent teacher confrences I would never recommend this school. There is ALWAYS after school fights in some place they call the 6th alley, and there are very very few teachers that actually teach something instead of telling you the answer. I was a former student, was there last year (2005-2006) and the new princepal is horrible. She would take drinks people bought out of there hands and through them away. I know your child would complain about here. Just save the time and not take your child here. A girl was raped in the bathroom last year. One more thing I would like to point out is the princepal was accused of stealing last year (not sure if they ever proved it though, and it was by an adult at some other place), oh ya and the teachers would also admit out loud that they did'nt like the princepal. Students would also sell drugs to other childrens parents and sometimes the janitor. Thats where im going to stop, I think this will have enough reason to not take your child to "WMS" (as we used to call it).
