Our child has grown into a responsible student here. They have learned to study on their own and I feel they are being prepared for real-life skills and are learning to be successful in High School and beyond already!
This school is great, and it even has programs for the special needs and a Montessori program if you want your child to be in that! It has a great amount of diversity, and no 2 kids are alike!
Westport Middle School is a very nice school. My son& daughter love it here. They love the lunches & lunch lady Ms.Terri.
This school is actually not terrible the education is on an appropriate level, its just some of the students make it bad. keep rude comments to yourself because this school is no bad.
This school is a terrible school. If your child has any type of special needs or behavioral disorders you should forget this school. My son went to this school and the teachers did not do anything to help further my child's education. They did not deal with his problems they would send him to another class room or allowed him to draw all during class. And when it came time for graduation although my son had failing grades they passed him just to get him out of their hair. The teachers are not fulfilling their responsibilities. I would never recomend this school to anyone. Any school would be better than this.
