West Ridge Middle School Reviews

Great school! The sports programs are perfect for athletic children! There are many clubs and after school activities offered! WRMS provides lots of opportunities for students to advance to higher classes. In fact, it’s more than likely a student will be in a pre-ap class than grade level class. Also, lockers are provided to every student! It’s a great learning environment for all students! The band, orchestra, and choir programs are very well run and the students easily master their voice/instrument in only a few months due to the amazing teachers and many resources provided!

This is much better than Hill Country Middle School! Great students and awesome teachers. Food can improve even though food in schools are bland and terrible normally
West Ridge Middle School provides good fundementals for students as they continue to high school. The extra curricular activities (clubs) are not extremely prevent at this school. Most teachers are very organized engaging but some lack the enthusiasm to provide a great education experience. Overall, the school is very friendly and sets their students up for success in high school.
