Western Mennonite School Ratings & Reviews

December 12, 2017 Submitted by a parent
Points we consider important when discussing the education of our children. Spiritual, Intellectual, and finally Social. Under the watchful eye of Al Stefan, the administration and all who interact with our children this environment is conducive to the growth and well being of all 3 of our children who attend. What a community and what a school!

We are thrilled to have been able to have our kids attend Western Mennonite. They have thrived academically, spiritually, socially, and athletically. Does it have all the resources and class offerings of a public school? Nope, but I hear all the time from parents of new students coming from public school how much they absolutely love the community that we call Western. Thank you to all the teachers and staff, parents, students, and larger community that makes Western such a great place to learn and grow.

I have two students who attended grades 6-12 at WMS. I appreciate the family-like God honoring atmosphere. The Mennonite roots are evident, but being Christ-like is the focus, as it should be. Only a very small percentage of kids come from Mennonite backgrounds. To the comment about basketball players being treated differently, as the parent of student athletes, I would say that they are, if anything, held to a higher standard than other students. They are expected to portray a God-honoring image always--even off campus and outside of school functions. To the comment about limited class options, I would say that is a fair assessment--but as a business-person I would say it is very unrealistic to expect a 250 student school to have the same course offerings as the 2000+ student public school down the road. To the comment about a head of school being an auctioneer--well, I think anyone who reads these reviews must consider who is writing. That staff member was hired because of his love for Jesus, love for the school, outgoing personality connections, and business know-how. Another staff was in charge of course offerings and content--the academic part of school. Private schools don't have the same funding as public ones and therefore someone has to be in charge of seeing that not only do the monthly bills get paid, but seeking out donors willing to help cover tuition for the high percentage of students who receive scholarships and for special projects such as buildings, buses and other upgrades that are outside of the normal monthly expenditures. Everyone decides where you want to spend your money. If you choose Western you are investing in the spiritual as well as the academic and social aspects of your student, and I can't imagine you would be disappointed.

Western has impacte my life in ways no one can imagine. Teachers and staff who care and who love the Lord and show it in their lives. Western is my family. All the negative thing happening and being said are unreasonable. Often times people talk without knowing the full truth

I removed my student from Western Mennonite because of changes in administration and faculty. Longtime teachers have been fired and replaced with first year teachers. The highly qualified head administrator has been replaced by a semi-professional fund raiser. It is not the same school that earned the five-star reviews. My child is doing very well in the public school and I am vey thankful that we were able to experience WMS when it was a good Christian school in more than name only.
