E.W. Thurston Middle School Reviews

Academically, it was pretty good. We got full exposure to different arts classes every year -- a rotation of art, drama, culinary education, and tech (which got discontinued recently) -- a great faculty, and high quality education. Socially, it stank a bit. There is little to no diversity in the Westwood public schools, and it shows. Kids would make fun of my heritage and my holidays, claim the Holocaust never happened, and say "jokes" and other comments that made it hard to get up in the morning sometimes. Westwood is currently trying to tackle this issue head on, but I know that a lot of it is going to go under the radar and probably won't be noticed or addressed for at least another few years. If you go or are going to go to Thurston, keep an eye out and stick up for the kids who get hurt by this type of behavior. It makes a world of a difference.

Absolute best Middle School around. Great technology, programs and astounding teachers. Way better than Westwood High School, according to all of my kids!
Convenient location with excellent teachers and administrators who are driven to succeed and excel. They set reasonable, yet stretch goals for themselves and their students. Parents work hard and are committed to the kids.
