I attended this school from 2010-2013, so I was in the same grade when my fellow students were caught with drugs and I was here for the threat that was issued onto the school by a past student. Despite us being on the news for these things, we were an average school for the rest of the school year. I truly miss WCMS because you gain so much knowledge and experience that will be treasured. Faculties are great, some teachers who greatly impacted your life will still root for you despite your flaws, and the curriculum is by far fun to learn. I hope you see that WCMS is an amazing middle school like I did.
