    West is a phenomenal school. I pay tuition for my daughter to go here and I am very impressed with the education she is getting. The teachers are fantastic and really care and want the kids to succeed. The only problem we have had is with some bullying. As is always the case in middle school kids are cruel and there will always be parents who do not teach their kids how to act. But I am not sending my daughter to socialize I'm sending her to school to learn and that she is doing well. The teachers and administration listen and step in when needed. Overall the last three years have been a great experience and I know my daughter is prepared to move on to highschool this fall.

    West Middle School is nothing to write home about. Early in the school year the 6th graders are classified. This is like picking winners and losers. Essentially they cull out the students that most of the teachers don't want to fool with. They go into one group and the winners mostly determined by your address go into another group. It isn't racial segregation it economic. It reminds one of a the caste systems of the old world. If daddy is rat catcher then little Jimmy can be too. This town needs service employees to stock all the shelves and wait table and this educational system is there to make sure they have plenty. The winning kids that get into the good group will go to college and leave Tullahoma to never return as there is nothing here for them. If you enroll in a child into West Middle School make sure your house is worth $200 000 because the teachers will check the address you put down in order to make their choices.

    The new school building is very nice. My son loves his 6th grade teachers. There is a good variety of activities. All in all It's a good school to attend. Administration is o.k. not very personable but they do their work.

    My daughter has attended West Middle School for two years now and what a wonderful experience. Great teachers My daughter likes them! The principal is new but no complaints yet. The students from his past school loved him so that speaks well. New building is excellent. I would like more time outside each day for students to relax and adsorb vitamin D. Also more time for physical activity is always needed. The recent removal of one of the coaches is upsetting. He gave her a love for history that I appreciate. I hope this issue is resolved to his favor soon. The school policy of only allowed five excused absences a year is a joke. Great school West Middle School I made sure that where we live would be in that West Middle Schools area.
