I was not thrilled with this school either. My son attended 3 years there and I do not feel like they prepared him academically for High School. I feel as though some of the teachers need to retire and bring in new ones that want to teach and challenge these kids. I feel like the other parent who said ...  Read more

My daughter has attended this school for two years and I am still unimpressed. The homework load is inconsistent and I get the impression that some of the teachers don't want to be bothered with helping a student who is struggling, especially after school.

Also this is one of the only schools in RI that do not have the teacher's update homework and other activities ...  Read more

As a parent of a 6th grader attending this school, I feel that Western Hills Middle School is the safest, most accademically challenging school in the city of Cranston.

I am not trying to be rude but i was not happy with this school what so ever. The teachers bullied their students and my daughter has been sent home crying for no reason. Her friends also agree. The adcademic programs aren't the best. There is a very good art program and music program but just about ...  Read more
