    I don't know if this page even gets viewed but here goes Weaver Middle School is much like every other school in Macon/Bibb County it is poorly operated. Too much focus on dress code than education. Houston County schools are right down the road and have no dress code (common sense should be enough to determine what a child wears) they have a much higher graduation rate and their schools are equivalent to most private schools. Macon needs to separate those children that want to learn and further their education from those that are there simply to keep their parents from going to jail. My son goes to Weaver and I pray for his safety and that he will hopefully be able to learn something regardless of the 'thugs' there. Stop trying to teach Mandarin Chinese in Macon a complete waste of time and money yet teach proper English and maybe some will go home and teach their parents how to talk as well. Macon has become a very scary and unsafe place to live and raise a family and sadly after spending all of my life here I am now counting down the months until we move to Warner Robins. Safety a decent education and a thriving city is all of what Macon lacks.

    As long as you stay in contact with your child's teachers the administration letting them know you are concerned & involved it's not a bad place. You've definitely got to educate your children about gangs/drugs/sex... it's major in [schools] but if you stay in comminucation with your child it'll be fine.

    I have had my daughter in tis school for a year and I am scared to let her go to school. I wish I could say any other of the middle school in middle GA were worth the tax payers money but it is not and I am not a very happy parent right this min.

    Wever as bad as people think it is.T hey just take teir time with teaching to make sure everyone understands what their doing and sometime they might do move too slow but they catch up.AS hard as they try most people only see the bad of them not the good of what they are doing.

    My children have been attending other middle schools in Macon and Weaver is above and beyond the other two middle schools my children attended. They are actually teaching at Weaver and my children are becoming better prepared for high school. The other schools were focusing too much on other things other than just academics. I am very pleased with what is happening at Weaver!
