    My child didn't learn anything in these school. The teachers don't care about the students.They combined classes and makes it hard on the students to learn. I feel like its not a safe enveriment for are children to learn

    This is the best small school. Teachers are very motivated and easy to communicate with. i always see all the teachers on the playground throughout the day talking to each student. My child came from a school that had labled him as a disapline problem and had him with the counsler most of the time. This school has never had any problems with our child and he has never been in counseling. this is his 2 year at WJM. I love the teachres the atmosphere and the summer program.
