    Wiley was a disappointment. It has ineffective leadership and the overall communication from the school is poor.

    The staff works hard to accommodate the many needs of the students matching instruction to students' ability levels trying to push them a bit farther than they are used to. Our dress code allows choices and helps to minimize distractions from learning. Our STEAM theme is new and cutting edge and includes all of our students not just our gifted ones. We help students learn how to learn.

    This is a terrible school. I have never seen such ignorant kids. Most teachers are mediocre and rarely ever committed to see kids strive in school because they know the students dont care anyway. Most of the kids dont know simple math geography etc. all they care about is being cool and making sure others acknowledge their stupidity. I've reported multiple incidents about being threatened assaulted etc. And all they ever do is simply tell the agressor "Don't do that it is bad." etc.. I want to do good in school and I have. But I constantly get bullied for it by people who are dumber than me. I have also had stuff stolen from me. There isn't even a gifted program because no kids there are smart enough to be considered gifted! It's pathetic disgusting really. These children will never be anything because they will most likely be this way for the rest of the time they're in school (most of them will drop out of high school). While the administrators and teachers aren't committed to helping these kids it's still mostly their fault that this school is trash. I plan on going to Paisley for 8th grade and I hope it's better than this "school".

    Wiley Middle School was a nightmare for my son and I was always stressed out due to some drama concerning the teachers who were allowed to bully and be abusive to the students. My son was labeled a "troublemaker" for simple acts of talking and lost the right to go to the bathroom for talking in the hallways where there is a "zero" volume tolerance. Front office staff is rude and concerns were ignored. The counseling staff is useless as they have no control over the teachers who are the main problem at this school. In the end the main principal seemed to disappear and was not involved at all. He would appear to listen in the beginning and act concerned but he never acted to change anything and I see now he was ignoring our concerns by talking a good talk. Just as bad in another way is Jefferson Middle School where my son just recently transferred to. It is rated #1 but doesn't compare at all to the school my son attended in Virginia. At Jefferson the kids on the AG team are rude and spoiled and have treated my son terribly.

    This is a awful school. If you are rich and support the school in some matter you will not have anything to worry about. This the most unfair some of the most unprofessional employees I have ever seen. This school need the state school officials to investigate and shut it down.

    Fantastic and rare opportunity to have total integration of STEAM (science technology engineering arts math) in a problem based learning environment. These kids are learning to think and be real problem solvers team players communicators and innovators . I have never seen more committed staff and leadership anywhere.

    I am a student here and I just moved from Va and this is not a very good school.This school is like a prison or a millitary school.I am NOT joking.Unless you want your kid to be disiplined to the extreme or to not have freedom dont send them here.In my elementary school in Virginia I had more freedom that this middle school.They stress a concept called zero volume.The kids are not even allowed to whisper in the hallway thus making them want to talk in class.There is a pointless dress code also.This school is very strict and frustrating.Is that what you want for your child? If your child does not like his school then that can lead to not having any motivation.I have never seen a school as bad as this and iwould not recomend it.

    I would NEVER recommend any child to attend this school thank goodness my chlld is smart and can figure out most his work by himself. It has been a nightmare for us. At least two of the 8th grade teaches just don't seem to have any patience. Of course he also has some good teachers. It's just nota middle school I coud recommend and feel good about it.

    Wiley middle is not the best school in the world. The teachers there don't really teach. Think twice before you send your child there because there are better schools out there.

    I have sent three kids through Wiley. Outstanding school faculty and leadership. Much improved from years ago.

    Wiley once a fine neighborhood school has been struggling in recent years. The Principal has responded to these challenges by the useless introduction of a uniform. If your ship starts to sink slap a fresh coat of paint on it! Is this what we call leadership?

  • (5 years ago)

    Hardly the climate of cooperation we were lead to expect. Academics for the most part are mediocre. Disregard for parental concerns and unresponsive administrators add up to a very frustrating and unpleasant experience. The principal seems to be running his own show here and if you're not part of The Club he's just not interested in what you have to say. Though a number of the teachers are terrific and we are well established here we intend to relocate. Our daughter deserves a more progressive enlightened learning environment. Wiley is just a waste of her time. I strongly suggest investigating this school thoroughly before considering placement. The PR is very misleading. There's a lot they don't tell you about Wiley School.

    What a gift we have at Wiley Middle...From Mr Weiss to the outstanding teachers! Best kept secret in town. We may not have the magnet $ but still offer the same quality education as any other middle school. Even better is the real tradition and pride that goes with W-S tradition!

    Wiley is the best! It is way better thank the other schools especially Jefferson!
