3/5 because the bullying and integrity policy needs to be improved
Posted by a student on 4/25/2018
My daughter was well prepared for high school after her three years at WGMS. Her teachers helped her stay organized with a syllabus ("green sheet") at the beginning of each year to clearly list expectations, grading and homework policies, and the content of the class. The school is really big, but my daughter stayed involved and social with sports, and being a neighborhood school made it that much easier. I appreciated the way the parents stayed involved via the WG Foundation, Performing Arts and Athletics Boosters. Would definitely recommend.

Every teacher my child has had in the last three years has been incredibly dedicated. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend WGMS to other families.

It was a horrible experience. There are many reviews saying "oh it has improved so much" well yes, it used to be a school with a lot of gang and bullying issues so that has improved. It has improved because more neighborhood kids go there. But that has had a negative effect in that the staff is overworked, there are too many students, staff don't communicate, don't have time. It is just like and industrialized factory. Read the negative reviews, I did once we started having serious issues with the school including bullying - the negative reviews are true and so much more common than anyone realizes! Don't expect this school to be like Booksin, Hacienda or Schallenberger. Or to have amazing and caring teachers, like Hammer Montessori. It is like sending your kid into the jungle and lunch time is like a prison yard.
