Walter C. Young Middle School Reviews

Walter C. Young middle school is fairly average. I would’ve given it a 3.5 out of 5 stars, if I had the option, but stuck with the 3. The pros: Fair administration, mostly good teachers (heavy emphasis on mostly, not all), and some (emphasis on some) students are tolerable and good. However, the two cons about this school is one, the environment of the school, mentally because there is a large lack of encouragement to perform well academically amongst the students, and physically (bathrooms are really dirty, lunches are bad, etc. ), and the lack of encouragement from the administration to push students to do better academically. All in all, Walter C. Young was more or less a somewhat enjoyable experience. Not the best, but certainly not the worst.

I attended Walter C. Young Middle school for my 6th-8th grade education. Walter isn’t an above average middle school, aside from a handful of exemplary teachers and staff, everything just meets the bare minimum. I did, however, learn that no matter what is presented to you, you still need to work hard and accomplish everything and anything you want in life.
Walter C Young was actually pretty nice. I played sports throughout my three years that I attended Walter C. The teachers set high standards for their students and teach them in order to reach and eventually surpass those standards of the district.
