    This school needs to learn how to treat students and control the ones that are out of control. My kids are begging to move out of this town after only 6 weeks total in this school. The teachers and staff do nothing to protect either of my ESE children against bulling. They have changed my kids kids schedule 7 times in the first 4 weeks of school which is NOT a good thing for an ADHD child. They need to train their teacher to handle the children better. i also agree that the uniforms are stupid. This school is in a lower income town and a lot of parents can't afford to put out money for a whole new set of clothing for school. I mean i have 3 kids in middle school do you know how expensive that is? Plus I had to spend a lot of money on their backpacks because the 7th and 8th graders can't even get locker because they don't have enough for everyone. Real safe there letting kids tote backpacks all over school.

    I feel as though this school is a joke! It has no idea on how to treat "special needs" students & continues to prove it over & over! They refuse to follow IEPs & do whatever they want! They continue to harass students to the point that they don't even want to go to school! ALL children are entitled to an 'education' & should be alowed to proceed at their own pace & not be forced to do what they don't want to do in a classroom setting. "Special Needs" students are exactly that - SPECIAL! & they need to be treated as sucn - not as inferrior beings!

    Wildwood Middle High School is an outstanding school. I have never worked in a setting that is so much like a family. We have a great student body that works together to make every day fun. Our teachers and staff strive for academic excellence while making school a fun place to be. Anybody who really knows what is happening at this school will be excited and supportive. I challenge anyone who hears anything negative about WMHS to find out the truth for yourself I am confident you will find this to be a great school.

    Wildwood Middle High School is an outstanding learning enviorment for students. the staff is there to assist you no matter what the situation is. The unifors arent that great but they are there for a good reason. The principal is an outstanding man. he is soo fun and goofy but that can change in a quick second if you push him to far. Wildwood Middle High is the best school in the world to me.

    I love working at this school! The administration is involved and supportive the faculty is dedicated and the students are extremely respectful and interested in learnring!

  • (5 years ago)

    This school is completely political. The teachers do not care about the students just their paychecks. Some of the teachers act as though they are still in high school themselves. The principal needs to have more structure on his teachers. I am embarrassed to be a part of this community and wished that I had the means of leaving the area.

    Great school but hate the uniforms and regular clothes are better because u already have regular clothes and it just cost more to buy uniforms! and I would like to wear regular clothes but rules about it too! like shirt tucked in with belt and no saggy pants! But other than that its a great school!

    The teaching staff at this school is very dedicated to helping the students and work together as a team to achieve learning goals. The Administration is very supportive and show strong solid leadership. Parent involvement is low and could be greatly improved upon. Safety and discipline is a priority and is enforced fairly by the administration.

    This school is a joke the princapal is a joke its like a poor disfunctional family that puts on a good face for the public.there is way too much drama and politics for being a public school. they do NOT care about the kids olly the numbers and the $$$$$.

  • (5 years ago)

    the school is great great teachers and no strict rules that much and we don't care how you look. we are fabuloso!!!!!

  • (5 years ago)

    I have been going to this school for about four years now and the funding is horrible. I have no opportunity for success and most of the kids here have no manners what so ever. it is not a privilege to go here and no one is treated fairly. I could only wish to be in that great villages charter school down the road! i would not recommend this school.

    Excellent school Mr. Hampton is a very involved principal. He knows his students and interacts well with them.

  • (6 years ago)

    i think this is a great school i am attending the school now as a 9th grader. the only thing that me and fellow classmates have is that we are set appart from all of the rest of the school until 6th period and we dont like it .

  • (6 years ago)

    This is a great school. The only problem I see is that not enough parents give enough of their time to help in all areas. School is not a daycare. It takes all of us to make it work. Don't complain if you are not involved day to day.

  • (7 years ago)

    I love working at this school. I think we have one of the best staffs around and the kids are pretty great too.

  • (7 years ago)

    I think the school should have more community involvement. Such as a community clean up day or a day to raise funds for the school to help out with many more extracurricular activities to get more students excited about coming to school and getting the work done knowing that they are going to get rewarded for it in the long run.

    In my opinion this school [is] not fair in their dealings with children. All I can say is I wish there was another school I could send my children to.
