Open Quote I would not recommend putting your kids in this school. There are so many kids in WMS that they can't keep up with ANY discipline. I have to walk through at least one fight to get to classes every day. Not long ago some one tore the sinks off the wall. The schools discipline plan? Close the bathroom to all students. And speaking of bathrooms, they are all nasty and have inappropriate writing all over them. The education is terrible because there are so many kids in the class. The teachers are good and really do care, but have so many kids that a lot of them just don't have time for you. My teachers have to grade like 400 different papers in one day, and a lot of them stay at school until 7 or 8:00 at night and still have to grade at home. The campus is nasty and falling apart, and if your kid is allergic to bee or hornet stings, find another school because they are EVERYWHERE!!! It is and overall bad school and my parents are moving me to another one. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE!!! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
