  • The reviews in this forum have convinced me that I definitely do not want my children to attend WCMS. Have they totally eliminated English and grammar from the curriculum?

  • I go to this school it is my 3rd yr here I will be leaving to go to high school. Over the years I have attended this school has changed ALOT for better and for worse!The better sides of the story we now have uniforms and people have stoped worrying about what each other are wearing and have noticed it dosn't matter who wears what!Also the Math and reading scores have gone up so MUCH over the years!Now for the worst we still are not learning how to spell most of us can't spell!!But overall this school is GREAT!!Thanks to the new principal!I give this school a B to a A-!

  • Looking at some of these postings, the school really needs to spend more time on spelling.
