I have had 4 children attend WPMS and overall it is not a bad school. As with any school, there have been a few teachers who speak to kids in a manner they shouldn't. I think the kids are pretty typical, not that many fights, school is usually pretty clean (can't speak on the restrooms since I don't recall ever being in them, but I have seen plenty of selfies taken in them and it appears to be above par. Their sports programs for boys and girls are great (volleyball, soccer, basketball, baseball, softball), band, choir, orchestra available. Some of the issues I have would be more with the district (ALEKS requirements in addition to normal math homework, and lack of in school time to complete since not all students have access to computers/internet). Love Mr. Jones (8th grade admin). Test scores may not be that great but I believe this is once again a district issue more so than the school.
