West Wilson Middle is a wonderful school with very caring administration and teachers! There are so many activities and opportunities for students to be involved in. As a parent, I am pleased with the communication from the teachers and school!

The school is more concerned with the dress code and other policies then the kids. The only time a parent is contacted is when it is in regards to your child not wearing a belt. My daughter was in choir and she had a "mini" concert one night, when we arrived we were told it was 4.00 to get in. What kind of a school charges parents to see their children sing in choir. The dances for the children also cost 4.00 per child to attend. I think that the board of education needs to be replaced with people that actually care about the children.
