  • I am in my last year at WJM and I realized ALOT of things that could be fixed
    1: We have to ride on a bus and drive all the way through town just to eat than drive all the way back.
    2: I had a teacher that favored other students and only the ones that did ALL her work all she had to do was give home work than they would do the rest. She also gave those students special perks (like useing her computer, A's ETC). It was a completeley diffrent story for the other kids she would shoot them down for excample a few days me and my friend were sitting in for recess so we could read and she said and I quote"You arent going to finish that book Br** I would understan if it was another student but not you. You will never finish that book." and now my friend wont even pick up a book!! Tell me that is not mean.
    3: We do not have Music we diden't have art OR P.E. till 3 years ago.
    There is alot more but thoes are they ones on the top of my mind.

  • My time at WJM was more than exceptional. Unlike other schools, at WJM there is a great link between the teachers and the students. There is hardly any bullying in the classroom or at break. Everybody was everyone's friend. Because of this good vibe we could all concentrate on our work and keep drama out of our lives. I would have to say the 2 years i spent there didn't just make me a better student but also a better person.
