    This is my second year at WMMS and I have hated this year with a fiery passion. As for the students the only bullying I have seen is name calling exclusion and a rare fight. Luckily my friends are kind honest and humorous in a way that doesn't hurt anyone's feelings. The teachers are another story. I only like two of my teachers and that is for a good reason. My science teacher is my favorite and that is because she always has diverse methods of teaching. Plus she knows how to keep students on task in a firm but kind way. My second favorite teacher is my math teacher. He is very passionate about what he does and includes humor and games in our learning. All of my other teachers are flat out mean unmotivated they don't teach us anything or try to cram too much into one lesson. Also most teachers only allow you to go to the bathroom three times per quarter. I think teachers should let reliable students like myself use the bathroom whenever it is needed. Also I have anxiety disorders and the frustration that the teachers build up in me have induced several panic attacks this year. If you want a subpar education and constant stress and frustration go to WMMS! --Student

    I went to this school for my 6th grade year and it was pretty good a little bullying but it went away. The teachers were good they gave us bathroom breaks in classes but it felt like I wasn't being challenged. -Student

    This is our first year at WMMS and we are very pleased. Our 6th grader enjoyed a very easy transition from elementary school to middle school - facilitated by a team of teachers that were positive nurturing happy and focused on supporting their students to succeed. Teachers/admin are generally pretty good about sending email info out to parents and respond quickly to questions. The school is due for renovation and that will be awesome for the staff and students when it happens - they have been patiently waiting! It's what goes on inside that counts though... I think this school is a great community that is bringing some new and innovative things to the classroom - we have seen a decent amount of "reflection" and inquiry based learning - very IB type things - SUPERB. This is NOT a magnet school but they are teaching in interesting and dynamic ways because it is good for KIDS!!! Our student is challenged and growing. Strong core volunteer group and active PTA. Keep up the great work WMMS - people are noticing and are very grateful for your effort!

    My daughter went there one year and hated it totally. Teachers were rude. She was on the basketball team and the coach was always shouting making the team sweat and as punishment they had to run 20 laps. Don't go to this school. The teachers RAPPED RULERS ON THEIR DESKS. DON'T EVEN THINK OF GOING TO THIS SCHOOL.

    I am a veteran teacher in my 18th year of teaching and my 11th year at West Millbrook. I started there with an excellent principal but when she retired after my 5th year there the school went into a downward spiral. Teachers were still working hard and cared deeply about the success of the students but the new administration was unsupportive and at times even adversarial. To our great fortune Dr. Muttillo was hired to return West Millbrook to its former glory! He has been our prinicipal for nearly 3 years now and has done a spectacular job of addressing the issues he inherited from the previous adminstration low test scores high teacher turn-over increased student misbehavior and discipline inconsistencies. Each one of these areas has shown marked improvement! I for one have never been happier at this school and I consider it the best one I have ever worked at! I have wonderful caring hardworking colleagues great administrators supportive and involved parents and great students! What more could I want in a school?

    After reading some of these reviews my husband and I were nervous about sending our child to 6th grade here - but he LOVED it and so did we! Dr. Mutillo does a fantastic job of keeping the students and teachers motivated and on task. I was concerned about behavior issues and fights and while they certainly have their share at WMMS my child never felt threatened or worried about going to school each day. In fact he couldn't wait to go! Academically it wasn't as challenging as some of the area private schools but the life lessons he learned and the diversity he experienced will serve him well in the long run! Some of the substitute teachers were a bit "dicey" and should have their positions re-evaluated but the core full-time teachers were awesome! WMMS isn't perfect but we were certainly pleased!

    I love West Millbrook!!! My son is finishing his third year at West Millbrook. He and I have both been so happy with his experience there. He feels very safe and happy at West. He feels very ready for high school and is being placed in all honors classes for 9th grade. Dr. Mutillo is wonderful. I see him EVERYWHERE! I even saw him across the stree the other day checking on kids who were walking that way. The whole feel of the school has changed for the better from the minute he walked in the door. The teachers seem much happier there is more school spirit and a happier feel throughout. Very very happy with West Millbrook!

    Dr Muttillo has done a wonderful job of turning W. Millbrook Middle into a school that I am proud to have my child attend. As a principal he has done a wonderful job motivating parents staff and students to succeed. W. Millbrook is a different school then it was in prior years when it was struggling so badly. Our family experience has been nothing but positive. So all I can say is a heart felt thank you to the teachers and staff for all you ve done to help my child thrive.

    I went to West Millbrook for 2 years and they were the worst 2 years of my schooling by far. Teachers were inadequate except for a few students weren't diverse at all. I was given no challenge and can pretty firmly say I didn't learn 1/8 of what I learned at one year at Ligon once I transfered. If I were a parent I would try to get your child into a magnet school or something because West Millbrook was the worst thing for me and If your child is academically gifted they will not be pleased with the atmosphere.

    The new principal took over this school in 7/2008. He is high energy and is a changemaker. It will take time to turn this around but he is the man for the job. Students and teachers say they have seen a huge improvement in communication and committment. Discipline issues are being tackled head on and the environment is beginning to see change. This school is on the right track.

    I am a new teacher to West Millbrook and have found it to be very positive. There were administrative issues in previous years however they currently run a very tight ship. I've enjoyed working within such a professional environment. Teachers are passionate and committed and the students are great. There is always room for improvement and everyone here seems committed to working towards that goal.

    I am a student in this school and it is wonderful. All the students and the teachers are always very helpful.

    I'm a parent of a sixth grader at WMMS and this school is riddled with disciplinary issues. The consequences for misbehavior vary by student not situation and this is troubling. My daughter who is a year ahead is well liked but is far from being challenged intellectually. There is no assistance for gifted children and no art is present either. I'm presently seeking another school for her where she will actually learn something.

    8th grade in the 2006-07 school year is over crowded with severe behavior disruptions in many of the classes. Teachers are told to handle all behavior problems within the team and they receive little administrative support. I've been a parent with children at West Millbrook for six years and I'm glad that this is my child's last year attending this school!

    I think West Millbrook is a great school for learning. The students are ver dedicated and so are the teachers. The teachers are very helpful. Parent Involvement is very high. Music art sports and other extracurricular activities are always available to students. I am very pleased with West Millbrook.
