    Wcms has helped my child with disabilities learn to read. He was at a 3rd grade level when we got here and he is now in 8th grade reading at a 6th grade level. I know most of the teachers have been awesome with him. I only have one science teacher who has not been willing to accept his disabilities and help him learn for her class. Other then that I have to say I love Mr.Streeter Mr.Miller and Ms.Rory Thank you for all your help the last 3 years.

    Anyone who is making a fuss about this school is ever an over protective parent or a whiny student. Some of my best times where at this school and while some fights broke out bullying is very rare. I did well though there is at least one bad teacher. But there is also amazing teachers (Hi Mr.Cleghorn!). So in conclusion I believe this school is amazing but nothing's perfect. -Christopher Cavin former student

    I think this is a wonderful school my child love it here and have been very successful.

    Worst school my children have ever attended. Rude teachers that breed negativity and a principal who is far more unhelpful then he is helpful. My children no longer attend school there. Parents look into your options before choosing this school. If I could send my kids to another public school in the area I would but that's not a option yet. Until then I will homeschool them where I can teach them the right way. Oh and common core it's just making our kids stupid!!!

    As with anything read everything with a grain of salt. Even this review. There will be a level of bias no matter where the review is coming from. What that said WCMS is an incredible school with great leadership. The teachers are all higher level teachers with highly qualified status in their content areas. They expect the most from their students each day. Work is meaningful (especially when homework is given). Some concerns may be the result of constant transition from program to program but that is going to occur in every school that is doing their best to accommodate their students. With different programs and models coming into fruition WCMS attempts to stay ahead of the game and do a great job in doing so. All in all WCMS is a positive school that does what is best for children. If you have concerns relating to that there are much better avenues to address them than a review board online.

    I don't think any one want's to hear what i have to say about this sorry excuse for a school. The ones who like this school needs an education about it. I am pulling my child out as soon as possible

    My child loves this school. She has had a lot of problems at her others school in the past at Rossview Middle with racism and stuff but here at WCMS they treat them all equally.

    The coyotes rule no doubts about it. If only this school was open when I was a child.

    I am not a parent nor am I a staff memeber of this school but pity these parents that send their children to school when the disciplining should have started at home. If you know there is a problem with it at school you need to make sure it is not your child. instead of blamingtheteachers. These children threaten the teachers and then you expect the teachers to feel safe and of course"it's not my child...i know...whatever! you are right the teachers and principals have NO support. Then the ones that expect the teachers to help their children learn everything. You don't want your child to have homework because you say it has nothing to do with what the child is learning well it gets them prepared for quetions about what they will work on the next day or two but the real reason is that you as a parent does not want to spend time working with your own children to help the m succeed. Because when they don't..oh it's the teacher's fault but if they do oh look how we helped our child pass school..when you did nothing but complain and give the teachers a hard time.

    As a parent of two children who have attended this school I am greatly disappointed in the leadership it offers. I believe that the teachers mean well and try hard to make a difference but there is very little meaningful disipline or structure and the children know it. This is the case both within the classroom and the bussing system. According to my children and their peer's the teachers attempt to be "friends" with the kids' rather than to be adults. Even children know that this doesn't work nor does it create harmony in a class setting. Rowdiness chaos and bullying seem to be the natural order of things in most of the daily activities and teacher's have no other recourse than to look away because they simply cannot get a handle on it and they have little to no support from the principal/vice principal staff.

    This is one of the worst schools my child has ever attended. Don't let its "new-ness" fool you it's NOT a terrific school. The children are out of control it is staffed with "wet behind the ears" teacher's who don't know what they're doing and power tripping office staff who enjoy nothing better than to tell you that you don't know how to be a parent even though their own children aren't even in the 3rd grade yet. They're insulting rude and crass and they have no respect for the students or the parents. If you can go to another school research a better one to go to and go there- you'll be glad you did!

    I went to West Creek for sixth grade before my family moved and I can honestly say that school is the reason I'm now homeschooled. My teachers were pretty good....except my history teacher who had no idea what he was doing and gave out a record number of behavior notifications for reasons such as sneezing coughing tripping.... The school leadership changed halfway through the school year and everything went crazy. Fights started breaking out all the time and half the seventh grade ended up in alternative school. The ISS room was so full as to be overflowling and we had constant issues with boy-girl relationships in the halls. I was removed from the gifted program becuase there wasn't enough space therefore I made straight A's all year. I never studied for a test and I never took any textbook home except for science and math. Therefore West Creek rates with 1

    my child has been going to this WCMS for two years now and I can't wait until he is OUT of it!! We were excited at first due to the fact that it was a new school but Oh were we ever disappointed. If you have a child with a special need as mine does it will be a nightmare. Most of the teachers my child has had didn't want to learn or understand the disability in order to facilitate a productive learning environment and help my child with learning difficulties. They are however very quick to discipline for behaviors that are caused by my child's disability and claim that it isn't. However if they had read all the documentation and informational material I provided for them they would have agreed. Next year they will have a new principle and I am hoping this will improve things and that he/she will hold the teachers more accountable. We shall see...

    West Creek Middle is a pretty good school compared to kenwood & new prov. not sure about northeast thoughh. The teachers can be a little strict but overall they try their best. As far as discipline we sure have plenty of that. Sometimes it's understandable like when students try to get into fights and stuff but little things like gum & hugging is just plain rediculous. As a student who has been there all 3 years the school has been open i can honestly say there is still room to improve. Students would like to have a little fun to but like at previous 8th grade meetings we've had we'd sure as hekk like to be successful (

    Honestly I went to west creek middle when it first opened. I didnt like how the school was still being 'built' while school was in session but I did like it. It was open and clean and alot better than north east middle. I am returning this year as a sophomore at west creek high. The teachers at WCMS were okay they were not like any of my teachers at NEMS. However the students think they run the school and that is how alot of bullying happened at NEMS and WCMS. Hopefully WCHS is better.

  • (6 years ago)

    The school is not very good academically and really didn't have anything for the 8th grade students to do. I hope it changes this year. If I had to do it all over again my child would have never attended this school.
