    Wedgewood middle school is amazing. The staff is wonderful and they motivate the students to work very hard. I heard stories about it and was affraid but I guess that is that situation with most middle schools. I have never been to a school quite like it. We also recently moved into a brand new building!

    I attended Wedgewood Middle School and it was a fantastic experience. Middle school can be a tough time for kids but it was my favorite time because I loved my school so much. The teachers were inspirational and worked hard to make sure their students had an enriching education. Wedgewood is a public school and a lot of the students there - like I was - are poor. This money would help the school support the needs of these disadvantaged students and allow the school to continue to provide great education as well as enriching activities like the ski trips classical music performances educational speakers and great elective courses that made my time there so wonderful.

    Wedgewood is an excellent school with a great staff and student body. I would recommend students who live in the westside of Columbus.

    I am very pleased with Wedgewood. We moved from San Diego last year and my daughter had to adjust to a new environment as well as a new school and I must say the principle Mr Hoffman made a very good impression on me. I could tell that he cared about the school the teachers and the students. Keep up the good work!!

    This is my daughters first year in attendance at Wedgewood. I am pleased with every aspect the teachers are there to teach and the environment is an educational one. The principle is wonderful I can't say enough about him. When I visit the school I alway see the Principle out in the school population this is a great way to keep order in a school environment. My daughter has yet complained in fact she loves it!

    This school is fantastic. The principal there is very dedicated to his job and works very hard for the good of the students. The teachers are very talented and push students to do their best. The music program is amazing. You will not find one single note of 'Mary Had A Little Lamb' played at any of the performances. Violent incidents are few and far between and handled quickly and accurately. The cafeteria food isn't bad and every grade is offered one recess time every day. This school is strong not only in academics or music but in athletics as well. The teams strive to do good better best all the time. If athletics are not your thing you should try some of the other activities. Writing debate mock trial... there's everything for everyone! Parent involvement is good. I would definitely recommend this school for you and your child(ren).

    I love Wedgewood middle school! I wasn't sure how I would feel my first year but the teachers make you feel so special. There are so many teachers that i like and look forward to spending the next 3 years with..The princible and vice princible are great. They handle the problems that you have and don't just say well just stay away from that person like in Elementary School..I never have gotten all A's until i went to wedgewood. I think one of the resons is because the teachers are so open and show us interesting ways to learn!
