    I went to this school for half of sixth grade and half of seventh grade. I liked many aspects of it including the teachers and the elective choices. The thing I really loved was the microwaves and hot water in the lunchroom which many other schools don't have. I'm giving WRMS four stars however because when I went here the library was horrible (in my opinion). There was almost no fiction more than 75% of all the books being nonfiction. It was somewhat difficult to find good books to read considering the limited selection.

    I attend this school and it most definitely a great place to go to if you live in the San Ramon Valley District

    My son attended school here the 2nd and 3rd year after it opened. He was in 6th grade and had full support for his special needs. However the support he needed was taken away the following year and in addition the school lost its strong supportive vice principal and guidance counselor. I was informed that due to his good grades the previous year he no longer needed his 504 plan to accommodate his special needs. Without this support his grades drastically slipped and his self esteem plummeted. We transferred him to Venture the following year. He has received full accommodations and support which has allowed him to become a self confident and and independent academically successful student. I hope the school has improved in this area and would loved to read comments from parents who have children with special needs attending WRMS. My ratings reflect my sons 7th grade year..

    This is an awesome school. My daughter is white and she graduated this year. We are grateful for the student body diversity the caliber of teachers PTSA/parent involvement rich set of electives administration facilities and extra-curricular activities including community service. This school offers some of the best high school/college prep in the bay area. It is simply an outstanding school.

    This a great school. And I disagree with "our race is white and unfortunately there are almost no white students in Windemere". This school has 20% white students. We are Asian. But my daughter has friends from different races. They all play together with no problem. Does this parent mean only when white is majority he/she will be happy? With this kind of attitude how could his/her kids be happy in school? This is Bay Area unfortunately there are lots of Asian Black here. We all love here and we all love the school and all the students in the school.

    I have two kids in the school and I can't be happier with their experience. Beside strong academic performances it is also safe and has a lot of extracurriculum activities. It has excellent music bands of all levels. If you want your kids challenged and aiming high it is a perfect choice whichever your race is. My kids have friends from various cultural backgrounds. They all seem pretty happy. Of course it is not a perfect world. Petty theft for example happens just like anywhere else.

    An exceptional middle school where the kids are challenged and feel safe on campus. The teachers and staff care about the overall well-being of each student. WRMS is an excellent middle school!

    This school has great education but my kid doesn't fit well...our race is white and unfortunately there are almost no white students in Windemere. Most students are Indian and Asian. So if you are white you are a total minority here. I think diversity is great as long as you don't feel a minority...

    WRMS is an awesome school. Look at the diversity of its student population !. Stellar academics lots of extra-curricular activities & sports . Advanced math classes are offered to those who want to be challenged. My eighth grader loves her school & teachers. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who may have a middle-school aged kid. My daughter has never complained about any bullying nor has witnesssed any fights at school.She has always felt quite safe at school and its excellent learning environment.

    Fantastic school! Has the highest API score of any middle school in the district. The school recently was recognized as a California distinguished school one of only 260 out of over 2400 elementary middle and high schools in the State. The the faculty is great and the Principal Mr. Bolin is dynamic and resourceful. Overall a wonderful place to have your kid go to middle school

    I love this school! It's the best school ever! The staff is great and the students are too! )

    This is a good school overall but recent events have me worried. There are kids who have been going around bullying and the administrators refuse to deal with it. It almost seems they are afraid to deal with the bullies. This does not bode well for later on when the group hits the high school.

    Qualified and definitely proficient teachers. My son loves his 8th grade year here. The school itself is new and hence very very clean. The education provided is superior. Very high output (via test results).

    Honestly the school is diverse. It has many types of ethnicities but not a lot of those types. A majority of the school is asian caucasian and other. Some of the teachers are amazing but you don't walk around the campus and hear constant praising for them. But overall its a good school. Its clean =)

    Overall this school is doing OK for a start-up school. It has the best use of website and email to communite with parents - (Schoolloop is great!). The school leadership and teacher quality can use some improvement however. It seems some teachers are young and inexperience about dealing with students. When confronted they seem to be defensive about it. They don't give enough attention to details of each case and just give 'lip service' answers to get through. The academic quality can improve as welll - it seems lack of standard from techer to teacher.

    Overall this school has been great. However there is certainly a communication gap among student teachers and principal. Some of the teachers do not have the skills to deal with such a diverse population. However other teachers are excellent and could not relate better. I think in a couple of years this will be a school that has set itself apart from the rest.
