Open Quote Students now have access to iPads to use at home for homework and research purposes. The staff and admin turn around has helped this school greatly. Close Quote

Open Quote There have been many changes in the administration and staffing at WMS in the last few years. The changes have brought consistent expectations for academics and behavior. As a result, Whitewater Middle has implemented many new initiatives that are improving the school culture and inviting the community to become actively involved in the school. Close Quote

Open Quote I was willing to give this school a chance. I really was. My child started hearing rumors about the fights at this school when he was in elementary school. That was terribly worrisome and I chalked it up to just kid rumors.

Within several weeks of school starting, we quickly realized that not only do the 6th graders have no recess but they have no gym time or outside time of ANY kind. Lunch periods were taken away at least once a week via walking the kids back and forth over and over and over again. The rumors of discipline problems are true however the methods of the teachers seem to add to it instead of modeling better behavior. I do NOT send my child to school to get screamed at along with the rest of his class. I mean come on.... seriously?

There are NO textbooks. All classes seem to be based on how well your child can take notes. No wonder their school performance scores are so below par for the state AND the district!

Do yourself and your family a favor - do whatever you can to send your child somewhere else. I have a TD / gifted student. I will be pulling him out. This school is a MISTAKE and a disaster. What a shame! 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.
