    I was reading and there is NO gang problem. And almost every school has at least one fight the whole school year. No one is perfect the tachers are amazing and I have never had a single teacher that would not try to reassure the security of every student. This school is very safe. I would defnitily recommend every child to go to this school. Yes our school has our up and downs we get people that have been transfered because of fights in another school who doesn't every school has there up and downs out staff takes care of every student and they get to know you and they will always try to resasure your saftey. They want every one to reach there highest level they will be able to. They offer honors classes and tons of after school things to do there fine arts programs are amazing!

    All the students here try their best and wish to exceed! They are all friendly from my point of view as a 7th grader from this school. They are all hard workers and not violent. The teachers are productive in teaching and learning from their students on which activities they like best! Problems with other students are rare but drama is at every school out there so I would recommend this school to any student ready to make friends and have fun! Athletics are a fun and easy way to meet new people and stay in shape so this school offers alot of different ones to choose from as in football softball(girls only) track volleyball and lots more! Hope to see you soon! )

    I go to western oaks. But i am changing schools this year. i am going into the 8th grade. My sixth grade year was fantastic. Although neglect was shown on the facultys part. I think that both of the last comments are very one sided. And really rather biased. Obviously the parent only knows what they hear from their student And frankly kids lie. And the teacher only knows it from a teachers perspective. There is middle ground. There is a gang problem. And there are some really good teachers. The administration is lacking and the teachers run a lot of the school. Too many fights happen. They make a big deal out of their 'anti-bully' rules... But are total hypocrites. I was bullied by both teachers and students. Numerous times. All reported. And handled with neglegence. I feel my right to a safe enviroment was exploited.

    I disagree with the last comment written. Western Oaks faculty members do what is best to make sure 'all' students have an equal opportunity to succeed. A lot of the teachers are highly visible and genuinely interested - not pre-occupied - in their students.

    WOW what a nightmare very little supervision and many of the teachers seem to be preoccupied. Western Oaks is definitely a school of tolerance and it shows the inability of a school system to control the other students while protecting the rights of those who are there to get any education. Every child deserves the right to attend a facility that protects them as well as educates them.

    This is one of the best middle schools in the PC district. My son has been attending since 6th he is now in 8th. The teachers he has this year are excellent. He is almost a straight A student he got one B the first 9 weeks. The overall appearance of the school is clean. He is doing great this year and alot of it has to do with his teachers. I give this school an A+.
