10/29/2012parentWood middle school is a great place to meet people, there are many opportunities to make friends and many group projects that don't put all the weight on one person and a variety of classes that students may pick to meet people with the same interests. The education in advanced classes is a little rocky but the teachers usually do have scheduled times where students can come get help if needed. The 6th grade science teacher Mrs.Juras is amazing, she's firm but fair and does so many interesting projects with the kids that make them want to go to class. All in all for the people who rate this school as 1 star are probably 6th grade parents. I want to tell them that the first year is crazy and the kids need more organizing tips but after that it calms down and is an amazing place to learn.
6/2/2012parentIf you care about learning and academic progress for your child, this school will be a huge disappointment. Based on the descriptions for the ratings, I don't even want to give the school one star. This school needs a complete revamp. There is no focus on learning/teaching. In Reading, 8th graders listen to an audio book and then the teacher posts a Summary on the screen for them to read on your own. There are minimal class discussions. In Science, they make foldable vocabulary terms and then do a Chapter Review. The actual chapters are never assigned or reviewed in class. Attendance is very low; on half days, many kids skip school altogether. Math homework is very rarely collected. Most teachers do the bare minimum and kids sit around in class. There is very little accountability required by the teachers. There is an issue with theft within the school as well. Gifted students are not challenged, and children who struggle will not receive the support they need. The Art and Spanish teachers are excellent. Overall, I do not recommend this school. It is much lower in quality than the other schools within the district.
5/7/2012parentThe educators here need to go back to schOol and learn how to COMMUNICATE TO PARENTS IN A TIMELY MANNER and HOW TO PREPARE KIDS TO BE INDEPENDANT LEARNERS. some teachers are great but they have to follow the convoluted plan of the principal...which does not work. Parents do not know anything is missing or needs their further attention until after a semester's grades have been given! The technology they use to post grades online is not effective and the teachers tell me it's hard to use. Some of them doesn't even post updates online.
4/18/2012parentI can't even give this school 1/2 star! Teachers do not communicate with students or parents they use the excuse "check your childs progress online for missing assignment/test scores" that might be a great tool if the teachers actually entered info. & not have weeks go bye until they decide to do their job. Principal & staff act as if they are middle schoolers themselves spending more time creating drama than dealing with real issues.
2/14/2012otherI hated this school. I was so far behind in the coursework, and I was not given any opportunities for tutoring or outside helping via the school. This school gives no opportunity for student growth, and spends too much time trying to stamp out teenage phases rather than directing them. Worst mistake of my life.
2/17/2010parentToo much emphasis on homework, without proper help for the students. Too much focus on criminalizing typical adolescent behavior. Not enough positive redirection to other activities. Boys must move more to learn!
2/18/2009studenti go to this school it is a wonderful school, the students are very generous
5/19/2008parentGreat environment and sense of community spirit. Philosophy emphasizes the golden rule.
4/4/2006parentTalented kids are 'left behind' basic academics are good but not challenging/interesting enough for the gifted kids. Nice school but not above average.
9/4/2004parentScience teaching is good. Well equipped with computers/IT related materials. Possible to track assignments etc. over the internet. More talented students are not sufficiently challenged, perhaps in an attempt to ensure that 'no child is left behind'.
