"Walter Reed Middle School has seen great transition over the past several years. Providing quality education to students through memorable, meaningful experiences deepens their levels of wisdom, and makes learning fun. We are creating a variety of instructive opportunities throughout the specialized learning communities at Reed. We have a dedicated teaching and administrative staff and continue to develop our parent and community volunteer base. Each year a new team of volunteer leaders, channeling efforts from the elementary schools into the middle school, help our student proficiency grow in State testing numbers. We are proud of the community we serve and fortified by the support of our friends and neighbors. We look forward to a great year ahead unified for our children's education and developing community."
"We are parents of a child enrolled in the IHP program, which was launched in 1971. According to Time Magazine, IHP is perhaps the most successful junior-high curriculum in the U.S. "The Reed prescription has been almost deceptively simple: three excellent teachers, bright kids, parental backing and tough-minded adherence to some of the eternal verities of learning." As parents and volunteers, we found that the reputation is well deserved. The administrators are top-notch, and the teachers are great. Everyone pitches in to help each other, including the wider Walter Reed community and the other small learning communities. We are very satisfied with the education that our child receives."
"Walter Reed Middle School is a part of the Los Angeles Unified School District in the North Hollywood/Studio City/Valley Village area. It is a title1 school. The school offers a variety of programs: the Individual Honors Program, the school for Advanced Studies, the Humanities Academy, the Technology Academy, the Environmental Academy, the Culinary Academy, Bilingual programs, and Cadet program. The students come from diverse backgrounds. Fifty percent of the school is Hispanic. Walter Reed offers many opportunities for enrichment. There is an amazing music program. They also have clubs such as Spelling Bee, Math Counts, Robotics, Cooking Camp, and Model United Nations. The teachers are dedicated to helping students succeed. They often stay after school to help students with homework."
"I am a single mother of two children attending Walter Reed middle school. my daughter has had a wonderful experience at this school, however my son has not. As a mother of two, my experience at this school has been a pretty good one.I do not believe that Walter Reed is to blame for the atrocious behavior of some students. you have to understand that schools have their hands tied because they're always getting sued. if you want to stop bullying then you need to address the problem personally.My son has been a victim of bullying but I am one of those no BS kind of parents. I do not bother the school with complaints of bullying, if you want to stop bullying you need to be able to take off the gloves.When my son has been bullied I let the parents know that there darling little angels are really demons monsters! I believe most parents are unaware of their children's awful behavior. Overall Walter Reed has been very good to me :-) We as parents need to address issues by talking to one another. Personally Walter Reed overall has provided a good education and decent place for my kid's to attend school."
"I couldn't have asked for a better middle school experience. At Reed I haven't only been gifted with a high class education but also with a community that excepts and believes in me. What I really like about Walter Reed is the fact that we're in seclusive environments "the academies" that become really close and tight knit. At the same time though, we experience a more general population which really prepares us for what the world outside of middle school, high school, college will be like. While we, like any other school, have quirks I can say that the time I've had at Reed has been throughly enjoyable."
