Westside Middle School Ratings & Reviews

Our child has flourished at Westside Middle School. The middle school breaks the student population into teams, which makes it more intimate. Passionate teachers, a wide range of electives and a strong and steady prinicpal make this a great place. My child will be ready for high school both academically and socially. The EY program has offered him some amazing opportunities.

Two sets of rules. One for rich kids and one for everyone else. Rich kids bully the heck out of everyone and the deans and principal turn a blind eye. Blame the victim even.

From the beginning of the year, the kids are expected to know how to be completely independent when it comes to their schoolwork and notes and time management. From the 3rd day of school, he has had about 4-5 hours of homework each night, for a 7th grader! The school fought with me to get him back on a 504 plan. The plan has already been revised and the teachers are still not following it, counselor is awful, doesn't do anything, principal refuses to talk to me and none of the teachers are responding to email. The elementary system is great!! It all falls apart once you get to the middle school. I'm very disappointed.

Westside is an amazing school district. My parents opted me in and it was the greatest decision we've made. To a previous comment: Things have changed. The gifted program is now a way students can participate in seminars with much extracurricular activities that are also presented in a fun way and everyone I talk to has fun. And students do get punished for mediocre work. It's called failing. The grading system is very tight in order to weed out good grades from bad. Nowadays there is also specialized reading classes, for those who need a little extra help. You can choose between three languages to choose as well. And Spanish needs to be the way it is. The first semester is a well needed review, and the second semester starts on more of the advanced stuff. New students to the district take a special Spanish class to catch them up, if they choose to take the Spanish route. Based on previous comments, I, as a student can surely say things have changed, and Westside Middle School is nearly perfect, despite minor inequivalent errors.
