10 Parent Reviews for Weir Middle School

The problem with Weir Middle is not the teachers it's the parents. A child's first and most important teacher is the parent. Discipline and structure need to be in the home. Most of the children do not respect authority. It is estimated that 20% of a teacher's class time is used to handle ...  Read more

Weir Middle School ranks very high in the state of West Virginia as far as academics. The A/R program is wonderful. The program works if the student works the program.

I am currently an 8th grade student at Weir Middle. I had some up's and down's thorughout my middle school carreer. I think the teaching methods are excellent. The only problem really is that they are a little too strict and discipline a little too much. I have many fond memoires of Weir Middle School.

As a parent I feel that Weir Middle school is stand offish. If I could afford to send my children, I would send them anywhere but there. They are more concerned with points and test scores than the actual child. Try getting help from a secretary, they look at you like you are crazy as if to say why ...  Read more

I think that the reminder program isn't a very good idea. Kids that are bad don't care how many they get. If you want to get the point through to them write them up. I also think that the AR program isn't a very good idea. Kids should choose to read and not be forced to read. This information is coming ...  Read more
