This school is absolutely awful. I attended 6th-8th grade at West Jeff and hated it. The students are rude (of course this is a generalization) but the administration is the WORST. Instead of taking time to tackle the problems that really matter, they will yell at your student for going inside on a day ...  Read more

Apathetic. A fair bit of burnout and treading water at this facility. Teaching the Tcap is the most vigorous application of skill seen so far. I understand because that is now the measure for funding and salaries, and you get that for which there is incentive.Students are tested on the test as preparation ...  Read more

If it were possible to give a school ZERO stars, I would. This school claims they are anti bullying etc., however the bullying that occurs is not only between students, but also occurs when teachers bully students. The principal lets the teachers do anything they want, and there are no consequences when ...  Read more

As a middle school teacher myself, I am appalled at what happens at West Jefferson Middle School! The teaching staff, and I mean solely the core teachers, were very full of their own importance while maintaining an apathetic attitude. Granted, my son was not a scholar, but he was NEVER a discipline issue. ...  Read more

This is a great school particularly because of the great academics and nice and caring teachers. They give you lots of help when you need it. This school is overall the best.
