    "While academic offerings may look good. Watchout. the teachers are not committed to delivering anything more than the basics. The algebra program for 7th grade is a poorly coordinated program which falls to the High School curriculum. The High School and the Middle School are different school districts. The Middle school has no control over what is taught by High School Teachers in the Middle School building. The High school teachers expect High School performance form 7th graders. The kids in this class are very motivated but struggle to keep up with a High School expectation. This system is not working for the students. The Middle School has no control over the situation. The High School doesn't care. Steer clear of this school it is not what it appears."

    "The school has an elite attitude from just inside the front door to the teachers lounge. There is no electronic grade book like K-12 Planet.com where parents can see grades on all homework, quizes and tests. When you email teachers not all emails get through or work properly. When there are issues about missing work or late assignments teachers don't want to send an email to help correct the behavior - 'Check in once every few weeks' is the answer. I guess in a 9 week grading period they don't want to be bothered too often. When parents ask for teachers meetings it takes weeks to schedule. Proactive communication from teachers is non existant."

    "Lots of opportunities for the kid who is looking for them. Shy kids may find themselves overwhelmed."

    "I am currently a student at WJHS, and I feel that our school could be a lot better. Some of the teachers that I had in seventh grade were great, but this year, in eighth grade, I am in team AA and this means I only have two teachers as opposed to 5. I strongly dislike both of them. One picks favorites and ignores the students that she dislikes, and the other doesn't know anything about the 3 subjects she teaches! Everyone is constantly correcting her and in Social Studies, she has to look simple things up all the time! Furthermore, I believe that WJHS spends way too much money on computers -- we get new ones each year! We could be using our money for better purposes. Finally, our school thinks that everyone bullies and teases each other all the time. In my 1 1/2 years at this school, I have never witnessed any bullying or teasing. (Sometimes I hear friends teasing each other jokingly, and a teacher yelling at them, and the students look at each other thinking, 'what is that teacher's problem?' WHJS coul improve!"
