    My two oldest children go to this school. The staff and administration do not care about your children they are just a number to them. They DO NOTHING TO STOP BULLYING. The Child that does the bulling doesn't get in trouble at all. The front office staff have no communication skills it is very very stressful trying to talk to them over the phone. They have been very rude to me and I'm just asking simple questions. Our youngest will NOT go to this school I can not handle going through this school again. I gave two stars because there are some teachers up there that have been good to my kids while they were in their class.

    Our students are wonderful! Parents are awesome. The staff is educated and knowledgeable. Administration is helpful and sincere. If and when you experience an issue that concerns you whether you are student or parent it is immediately addressed!! Kids are loved at this school!

    Staff and Administration is greatly lacking in responisbilty and professionalism. Parents are treated like road kill while their children are tormented and bullied. This school is lacking in education due to the environment created by administrations lack in experience and abilities to create a safe environment for teachers and students. Parents are not suppose to care what happens to their children on school grounds.

    School does nothing to stop bullying. Children come home bruised and battered and the child doing the bullying is not punished or disciplined. Parents are told they are not a part of what happens to their child once they arrive at school.Some of the Teachers are the only great thing about this school.

    I really like the way my daughter's concerns regarding bullying is handled. She feels that she always has an administrator that will hear her concerns and serve as problems solvers before situations socially escalate. I have been very pleased with how the girl gossiping has not been a major issue at WMS.

    I think the school has exceptional teachers and administrators. My concerns are always addressed in a timely fashion and it is evident that student needs come first. I am so pleased at what I see as a parent volunteer on a daily basis.

    My son was push through the system in Elementary school. He failed 2 of his TAKS test and put in summer school. The first 2 semesters of middle school he failed. Watauga Middle has help a lot. My son is now passing all of his classes now. The Trailblazer teachers are the best. They have brought up my sons self esteem up so much. He holds his head up high and is proud of his grades.
