    WWJR is well run well maintained SAFE (no gangs) and a great environment. Highly recommend.

    Apparently this school did not receive the new guidelines setforth by TISD on the new bullying guidelines. They are not helping and it is continuing constantly. This is far more than the occassional comment. This is obvious bullying in which the administration has not controlled. This is causing emotional and physical distress and an atmosphere non-condusive to learning. Trying to find another school now!

    this school has a very serious problem with harrassment & teasing & bullying. the staff constantly "looks the other way" ALL students should be educated on teen acne. my child is suffering a lot of emotional pain because she has acne & is made fun of on a daily basis. the principal & staff seem to be extremely uncaring & oblivious to this terrible problem. And our kids are paying a very high emotional price for their negligence.

    My son just recently graduated and completed 8th grade successfully the school has a Good Academic program Band is excellent. But the Bullying part is present should be diverse and the kids should be more controlled and campaign to Stop Bullying!!! Race issue in this school too.

    Willow Wood Junior High has a bullying and harrassment problem that is in my opinion not being addressed adequately by school officials. The band program is spectacular. At least one history teacher lets her political preferences influence how she delivers American History. The school administration should also work harder to create more possibilities for face-to-face interactions with the teachers.

    I agree this school is horrible. Bullying is endless. Teachers don't help and in some ways start the bullying. Am going to home school till we can move to another school district.

    This school is AMAZING! I am a student here and I always feel welcome. The students are average but the teachers are great and they expect the most from EVERYONE! If you are thinking of an area Tomball is THE Best place to move.

    Good school with great opportunities for advanced students including high school courses. Administration is fantastic. I had more communication (all positive) with this principal than any other school in the district.
