Westside Middle School Ratings & Reviews

Overall I honestly did not like my experience here. Since I started there this school has become way better, but is still not up to public standards. Not a lot of freedom and does not prepare students for the social side of high school. The classes that are offered here are very good, but the school continues to hire staff that students do not like at ALL. Throughout my years here the staff has been the majority problem. Leadership is fine; it's great, but when most of the students do not like a teacher it makes everyone's day worse.

What a disorganized mess this school was! We were new to the area and my child was just starting middle school. All local barrow schools register in one location, so of course, the process took nearly half a day. Several kids at the open house, including my daughter, hadn't been assigned home room teachers. Trying to get questions answered (like how do I find out who my child's teacher is) was nearly impossible, as most teachers and staff seemed clueless, or irritated. This school lacks basic communication and involvement for parents, the times I did reach out to the teachers I was met with borderline rude responses, like I was bothering them with my questions. My daughter got in school suspension 3 weeks into a new school year, she has never so much as had a letter sent home in her previous school and was a stellar student. It's unfortunate that the students have to suffer because their teachers are burnt out, overwhelmed, apathetic, or disorganized. Disorganized, overly disciplinarian, lacking basic extracurriculars and parental involvement. What a terrible experience, I was thrilled to take my daughter out of this school.

I agree with the posts about the staff they could be more pleasant and helpful.I like the dresscode and I think all schools need a dress code. As far as the staff they need to build up the students more than they are and let the parents be involved more and work with the parentsinstead of blocking them out. Thanks, Concerned Parent

Although my daughter is excelling academically, (possibly because she is not challenged..at all) I must say that WMS has the potential to be a great school but first, the administration needs to loosen the reigns (just a bit!), remember that the students are children first and breath some excitement and fresh air back into what is currently a stale and uninviting school. Discipline and regimen are a fantastic CORE standard to run (not rule) your school by however, it does not need define who you are, as a school to both the kids and the people on the outside. Yes, this was my first impression of this school and still is. Ms. Rolader, your school will demonstrate much higher academic achievement and participation (from both parents and students) if you can learn to lighten up enough to have a little fun and make your school a place that the kids WANT to go to everyday. If you can accomplish that feat, then you can consider yourself a true teacher, leader and role model. I will be watching and hope to see a positive transformation soon!

We moved to neighboring Gwinnett County to give our son a good education. West Side was a nightmare! The staff and administration do not care about the well being of the children. The children are not challenged, there is barely any homework given. Parent involvement is not encouraged. The Principal is a horrible leader of this school. West Side needs to get rid of Ms. Rolader. She is very disrespectful in her dealings with both children and parents. I truly feel since this is a low income area, the administrators and teachers feel they can get away with giving students an inferior education and treating parents with disrespect. Moving out of this district was the best decision we ever made for our child. He is now being challenged and being encouraged by his teachers.
