    My school is soo great i can only think of 2 teachers i dislike-Mrs. Sharron and Mrs. Heinrecs. But other wise that were great! Every morning we have a police stand up by the crosswalk. If its below 10 degrees or raining we have to stand inside and wait for the bell to ring. There is also a teacher at the main and at the side door every morning. All 5-8th grades may pick their seat in line. At recess (all grades have recess) if you dont have late work you may go outside. (If you are out the full recess it is 10-30 mins) I am a 6th grade student at WDMS.

    This is by far the worst school district that my daughter has ever attended. I can only think of two teachers that are good teachers. On career day when asked what they wanted to do when they grew up (7th graders) one responded a wood worker and another a fashion designer and the counselor told them they needed to pick a more "realistic" career. If the children come to school early (buses do not run in the school vicinity) the children are forced to stand outside regardless of the weather. There is a local policeman that is supposed to be out front but he sits in his car. We are currently looking at moving based solely on this school district. We will find somewhere more like Colorado where they care about the children more than their retirement.
