Westside middle is a horrible school. It teaches through intemidation and the teachers swear at the students and tells them if they can swear we can to. I have witnessed the cop there run up into one of the girl students and start yelling at her.

Very unorganized, not helpful, not informative, Curriculum is so out of date. Cannot meet the educational needs of students who are more advanced. The advanced classes are below average of the Seymour and Shelton School districts. This is not a school you want to send your children to if you can avoid ...  Read more

I am an alumna of westside middle school and despite what some of the reviews say west side does enforce rules. You cant really judge the school because one student decided to go berzerk one day.
