    If you're a substitute subbers beware! If the class is out of control you will end up calling the security. That's how bad the class is without their teacher! But at least the staff was supportive!

    This school is a joke. The teacher bully the kids and put them down by calling them names like slacker and the principle turns his head when he is told by the student what the teacher did. Parents be advised don't send you kids here

    I am a high school senior now and attended workman both of my jr high years. my time there was good because i had good friends and got along well with the teachers there are many ways of making your years there some good ones i wasnt part of the 'wild kids' but i still had a great time there. overall it's about the experience and the people you meet )

    I am an 8th grade student at workman junior high and my experience there hasnt been at all to good. Most of the teachers there tell to little or too much . what i mean by that is They expect you to do something with little information and they expect you to know a lot with a huge amount of information at one time.As for the students there its another story. You have to act wild to get attention if you want it but if you dont get attention you will be framed as weak or a punk. When i was a seventh grader there it wasnt a very good year. I had to shorten this because i was going to tell what i experienced one day but ive exceeded the limit and its my bed time >=/

    My son atended Workman JH for 1 semester and the things he was telling me was enough for me to take him out the school. The teachers was ok but the students was way to wild

    It has now been 2 years since our daughter finished her very positive middle school experience at Workman Jr. High. Workman is a diverse environment and a completely foreign scenario from the elementary school in a small town in a different state where our daughter attended previously. We found her experience to be unbelievably positive with faculty and staff who supported her endeavors unconditionally and encouraged her academic/athletic success. The caliber of her teachers/coaches (especially Coach Carruthers and band director 'Mr. M-B') were outstanding. Now that our family has relocated out of Texas we can only pray for similar outstanding educational opportunities for our daughter as she finishes her high school career as well as her 2 elementary-aged younger brothers. We would recommend this school without qualification to anyone.

    Workman is a school with teachers dedicated to seeing the success of the students. Parent involvement is low but that can be remedied. The teachers are a family and work together to try and help every student.

    The teachers do a good job teaching but don't communicate with parents enough. I tend to find out things at the last minute or after the fact. I like the principal and vice principal. The kids are a little wild but no worse than any other junior high. Overall it's a good school.

    i feel that workman junior high is a wonderful school i can really appreciate the way the adminstration staff has really supported me an effort to keep my son on the right track because if i ever need answers all i have to do is e-mail or call and they are willing to help solve the problem because i had and incident back in the first semester with my son and his performance in 2 of his major classes and the teachers as well as the principal all came together to help and my son accomplish the goal to bring his grades up. overall workman is an outstanding school and i would recommend anyone to attend it they want a really education.
