    I'm disappointed that our community school has such a low rating. Being a first time parent in the Middle School I have been happy thus far with the curriculum and teacher involvement. My student has some challenges and the faculty have been accommodating in implementing strategies to help him succeed. I think that if a parent were not involved or not as inquisitive in their child's education or in ensuring things are done and information is communicated- that a child could easily not get what they need and fall through the cracks. That would be a shame. I hope to see more success as a school with more parent involvement as that's the only way students will fully succeed.

    I cannot even begin to explain my disgust in webster middle school!! They are completely incompitent they try to paint a picture that my child is bad when its them who cant handle anything less than a perfect little robot! When you fight the system and call them out on their faults they turn things around and blame parents! I am now forced to take drastic measures against them as they are unwilling to place my child elsewhere like i have been fighting for!

    Webster middle school has the worst teachers I have ever dealt with. This school claims to care for children being bullied. When in reality most of the bullying is done by there own!! YES!! That`s right some of the teachers are just as bad- if not worse at bullying. If a teacher dosnt like a student. That teacher can make it very hard for anyone else to like them either.. Imagine your child crying almost every day because they dont want to go to school. Now imagine the reason is because there being bullied but not by students. BY TEACHERS! Every day I get a phone call from the school telling me my child did this my child did that. Most of the calls have to do with little petty things that could and should be dealt with during school hours. (talking in class run. in hallway got up from there seat without permission) just to name a few. Last week my child came home badly bruised by another child. Where was the phone call then! Also last week my child threw a SEVERE tantrum fit about going to school right infront of principal asnt. principal & 2 teachers they just stood there watching Not one of them came over to help assist or help in any way. Shame on them!!

    I feel Webster really needs to work on improving the level of education our children are receiving. In the fall of 2004 I expressed my concerns abouth the six grade math curriculum and was Webster following the DOE's framework for sixth graders since they would be taking the sixth grade MCAs test this year. I questioned this because my child 1. did not have a math book 2. was working from math worksheets which covered just basic mathematics. After expressing my concerning to the Principal I did notice my son had a blue math folder that seem to be covering some of the topics listing on the DOE Sixth Grade Math Frameworks. My child struggles in reading and writting and I do not feel he does not receive enough support in these areas. I am worry about him maintaining his grades in the seventh grade. Webster does not offer enough extracurricular activities.

    I wasn't too thrilled with the quality of education my son received at AJS. At AJS he was bullied without help from teachers/officials did not get the extra help that he needed in special education nor did the teachers try very hard to work with me to resolve things. My son also brought home some horror stories about a teacher dumping an entire desk and forcing a student to clean it as well as frequent screaming and belittling. I do not know if that's true but it's what my son told me. Now that he is at Bartlett Jr./Sr. High things have greatly improved. I'm thankful he's out of AJS and in a good learning environment now.

    well i think the education could be impoved and like my son has brought something home where u have to rite an essey and if it gets picked then the school will receieve a bundle wqith lap tops and electronic technology that could improve education and make it more fun.Like if we win this it will be better because like some kids dont want to studie or what ever like it will make their educatation more fun and it will be better cause like kids dont want to always just like studie out of a book and if u have like a electronic gadget it will be more fun and it will improve their grades for sure so thats it on the essey. but like the school has a really bad condition and i was just by the new schooland it was really enourmes.Well the new principal is okay but the.
