    I went here and I liked it and hated it. The curriculum was too easy for me the social atmosphere was bad I didnt like that drugs were common talk around the school. The school was clean and all nice school just not that hard mentally easy to get good grades. I liked it but Catholic School is incredibly better.

    I have two children attending WMS and they both have had excellent educational experiences there. I've been very happy with all of the programs offered... plenty of activities for the kids to try and teachers and staff are very supportive and encouraging.

    Ok let's see the bullying in this school is a disaster and the principal does not have enough bullying knowledge.
