Awful at best. Move before your child is zoned to this school. Coming from barbara bush elementary this is not the place for you.

Terrible middle school. Barbara Bush is an excellent elementary school so I had high hopes for West Briar. Was sorely disappointed. Students are awful, teachers are terrorized by them, because of the teacher/administrator turnover is VERY high. Do not send your kids here.

I had hoped that GT pre-AP classes would be challenging for my student, but they really only do the standard curriculum, with extra projects. In class, they do STAAR worksheets, and WEEKLY district assessment tests. One of the teachers even told the class that "Sometimes you have to do things you don't like. For example, I never wanted to be a teacher." The deans are friendly, and are happy to meet with parents; however, not much changes. I'm not sure if it is the deans, or the administration responsible for this lack of action. On the upside, the theater and dance programs are excellent. But the best thing I can say about this school is that it's close to my house. If my child isn't accepted into the magnet programs or charter school I applied for, I will likely homeschool rather than send her back here. WBMS is not really suitable for GT kids.

I have had three children attend WBMS.They were in Pre-Ap classes.They were very well taught and prepared for Pre-Ap and AP in High school.My oldest is a senior in college and has maintained being on the deans list from her first semester on.It all starts with being well prepared at the end of each school year for the next and WBMS does this very well.We had one very mild experience with a bully ,contacted the school and it was resolved quickly..
