My experience with WMAES has been one that of a very challenging one. WMAES is a very hard school, especially in high school, as they require you to take challenging classes to graduate. Most the teachers are good at explaining the things taught, others not so much. Overall however, the teachers do a good job. The only thing I would like to see change is the amount of explaining the teachers give. The school does not do well with giving students time off, however. Students seem very overworked.

I've been at this school for almost 10 years now, so it could just be that I'm used to it, I've experienced a lot of bad things, like bullying, and just the average day to day school life. The school is monotonous, every day gets to be exactly the same, you hear the same stories over and over from different people. To top it off most new people don't stay so I've been with the same kids since I started here in second grade, overall the teachers are great but I just wish there were exciting things going on
WMAES is a great school that offers such a wonderful change of pace for kids who are used to "typical" schools. The attitude seems more laid back and the teachers, for the most part, are well versed in how to integrate kids who are "different" into the mainstream classrooms.
