Walter Reed Middle School Reviews
Walter Reed is an awesome school and there are many opportunities there and many awesome electives. I am going to the eighth grade and i am excited. For some of you who hate walter reed middle school are blind. They don't know awesome when they see it. There are multiple electives to pick from. Art, Mythology, Music, Leadership and so on and so forth. Now For the first half of 6th grade i went to Millikan Middle school. Now thats a bad school. So many drugs bad use of cuss words and it's not cool. The principal does nothing about so does the vice principal. Now Donna Tobin the principal of walter reed is an awesome role model for making you successful in life. I am also happy that school is starting early this year. Adrenaline is rising up. Boiling over like a pot of moist rice. Simile. I got awesome grades the whole two years i was there. Bring your child to walter reed middle school. It's a good choice. XD Oh and another thing your child is retarded if you think the administration is useless. If your child was bright in the first place none of this would have happened.
I cannot say anything about safety of this school, but administration is useless. Maybe IHP program is good, but the rest of the school just a place where you cannot learn. My son has been assigned to the Math class that he had been taken a year earlier and it is now has been a week since we try to move him to the right place. People just send you from one room to another. Counselor told me last me: you are the parent, you have to resolve this issue yourself. Wonderful! All good resources in school are for IHP. Nobody cares about other kids. My daughter was in Millikan School before and in Soces. We have never been treated with such disrespect there as we have been here in Walter Reed. At the times when there are so many counselors don't have jobs, this school keeps the worst.
The only thing they care is about selling candies to earn some money for school. Why do they need extra money if they cannot even spend what they have the right way?
My daughters completed the honors program. There are some truly incredible teachers, but there were two that I wish someone had the power to let go. Your child can have absolutely no music skills and graduate knowing how to play an instrument very well. Always felt safe on the campus. You get what you put into it.
My son is in the IHP program and loves it. The good parts about Walter Reed Middle school far outweigh the bad.
My 13-year-old daughter was sexually harassed by a fellow student and when she approached a faculty member regarding the situation she was met with verbal sexual harassment from the faculty member and reprimanded.
Fights break out frequently between students and faculty is typically slow to alleviate the situations. I have gone to pick my daughter up and on at least three occasions I've scene students fighting in front of the school with no adults intervening.
This school is poor about enforcing its dress code and if a school can't enforce a minor rule like that what does that say about the school's attitude towards its other rules.
Walter Reed is not a safe school for children.
