    "I've been going to this school since 6th grade, and although it's gone downhill over the last few years I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The school offers a wide variety of arts classes, the only problem is often times you can't take the classes you sign up for because they conflict with academics or they aren't offered during certain periods so you are stuck taking classes that are not helping you pursue your interests. I've also had quite a few friends not be able to take honors classes they belong in simply because they are "full", which is not only unfair but damaging to the student's record. The administration can be inattentive to the concerns of students, but most of the teachers are encouraging, helpful, and want you to succeed in everything you do. Overall my experiences here have been good. If you're interested in the arts, WAMS is the place to be."

    "My experience of this beautiful school was the best. I was able to grow into the person i am today to this school. I became a great musician of the school playing saxophone and worked hard for it. This school connects around the communities and and the arts i would for people to join in this magnificent school."

    "I recently graduated (not this year, but in years prior!) During my time at this school, I experienced very little bullying experiences, the teachers were wonderful to me, and I was treated incredibly well by staff! As much as I loved the staff, I do believe that the school must work on a better reviewing process. The higher-ups should keep their eyes on the teachers, as I have seen teachers bullying their students and not having to face any repercussions. It's no wonder so much has gone down in the past couple of years. Otherwise, I do think that 90% of the staff cares for their students and the WAMS family!"

    "It's an okay school but it's not a real Arts school. Doesn't have good academics either. You don't have any time to focus on Arts and you won't receive a great education either."
