    I have spent nearly half the school year at this school and I have hated it with a fiery passion...The Teachers do NOT help they expect us to know EXACTLY what to do and I have barely learnt a thing...

  • (4 years ago)

    The teacher some do the best they can with what they are given. The student are kids. If the teachers and administraters are not reaching them then they are FAILING these kids. The parents are definately not involved in their kids education. No wonder they are not interested in learning. We have a long way to go.

    The administration is wonderful. They are trying their best to improve student grades and discipline. The problem is the student population they have to deal with - the best teachers cannot control the students when the classes are bigger than they should be. The students are given all the materials homework and lessons to succeed but once they leave the school they no longer care. As a teacher at the school I never had homework turned in no matter how many calls I made home to parents. The majority (not all) of parents at the school simply do not care enough for their children's school work to help them improve. The teachers and administration are doing the best job they can with what resources they are given.

    I think the school is over the top on protection. Ive personally been there and its like big brother is watching you. The teachers are lacking with discipline though. Except for Mr. Ladner and Mr. Kennedy. The principal is to caught up in how the studentslook and how the school looks to see the reality of the grades and the failing lunch system and the condition of the school.

    If the leadership was the best at this school it would have received a better grade than a D. Leadership at this school lacks consistent discipline procedures. I agree that it is too focused on other things instead of ways to help our students learn. The faculty does have high expectations for the students but lacks the backing of the administration.

    I am not happy with his school at all. Too focused on other things and not focused on helping our students learn!!!

    I believe that the leadership at Warrington Middle School is the best in the district. Ms. Nixon stays on top of things to ensure her teachers are well informed and trained on new procedures before they become mandated. She loves to have fun but is all business when she needs to be. All the faculty have high expectations for the students. Parent involvement is very much encouraged but I believe that due to the homelife that many of these kids have there is a great lack of continuity between home and school. I do agree the lunches are disgusting and I believe they have a lot to do with the fact that the students' behavior deteriorates after lunch.

    warrington middle school is a great place to learn new things and make new friends but the lunches are disgusting!!they could do a very better job.My child complains everyday so i have to make lunch but the learning and friends part is a 'A'

    My daughter enjoys being at this school. I have only had 2 teachers give my daughter any problems. Those issues resolved on their own. I think the principal and office staff are courteous and supportive of parent involvement. I also think that the teachers here have worked with my child to bring up her scores. Overall she has had good grades and likes going to school.

    I believe Jeb Bush does very little to help better Florida schools. This school has not made it's AYP in the three years we've been stationed here and I believe it's been longer than that since it has. It has received a D as far as grading goes. I don't want to blame the staff - I think that lack of resources plays a major role in this situation. I emailed Mr. Bush quite a long time ago with my concerns about the school and haven't received a reply yet. (Don't intend to) My son does enjoy being in the school band the principal is a very lovely woman most of the teachers are easy to like but things could be better if they only had more resources.
