Wakefield Middle School Reviews
I am pleasantly disappointed in this school and have yet to see the challenge and the caring spirit of staff. I have a child in 6th grade and I am completely disappointed. There is no accountability and I have yet to see teachers go the extra mile to seek mastery of the content. Although teachers provide work, it's more busy work i.e extra credit, this reeks of low level rigor and is supported by adminstration because it still happens. Busy work does not mean challenging and certainly when writing is the focus since 4th grade fill in the blanks and vocabulary are not okay.
Teachers are very accessible and willing to go the extra mile for struggling students. The classes are well taught and students are being appropriately challenged.
When we moved here in January 2010, I was worried about our first move - ever. We were welcomed by Mrs. Anderson. Warm, friendly and reassuring. She is a great ambassador for Wakefield Middle School and Wake Co. Schools in general. The teachers and school have been great so far. 4 stars only because we have been here such a short time and do not know what to compare this school to in Wake County.
That the teachers are very prejudice , they tend to only care about the white kids grades and how they learn . They give up on black kids and think that most of the time there is nothing to them the white teachers look down on them and I think that everyone should be treated equally. Teachers are not taking time out to help a student one on one because of the large amount of students they have to teach , so I would prefer my child to be homeschooled because i know that I will take my time to teach my child.
