    This school system is terrible! Their grading scale is 7 points and my child's science teacher shows the class inappropriate pictures. (Mrs.Saunders) Do not send your child here. Worst school system ever! I thing WGMS needs a ton of updating and to fix their heating /air conditioning system. My child Often complains about the rooms being to hot or to cold.

    My wife and I relocated to Northern Virginia from Central Virginia in Dec 2008. Our previous school district had great leadership, innovative teachers, and diverse student activities. My wife and I were concerned about the school rating but willing to give the school the benefit of the doubt. Since the beginning my middle school daughter has been bullied and teased by her school mates. We have had numerous conversations with counselors concerning the way the students communicate. In Jan 2011, my wife and I met with the principal to discuss our views. It was the most unprofessional conversation I have had in my adult life. The principal was more than 45 minutes late for an appointment that his office booked. He was defensive, inmature, and rude. He insisted that his school was great because they got high scores on the state tests and recommended that we removed our daughter from his school. My wife and I were disappointed with his actions and will remove our daughter from the Fredericksburg School District for her high school years. I have nothing but accolades for the staff of Walker Grant Middle School but not the principal.

    I was worried when we were relocating from AZ to the area. The schools are rated so poorly. We found the perfect house, it was within walking distance of this school, but I mean, a 3 out of 10? To compound the issue, my son has Asperger's and I was worried that with a rating so low, he wouldn't get the care and help he needed. I ended up getting the house and just figured if the school was terrible, I could always homeschool. This is seriously one of the best schools my child has ever attended.They have an autism coordinator, and the teachers are just awesome and try really hard to reach the kids and make learning fun. My son is doing well in his classes and feels challenged without feeling overwhelmed. I highly recommend this school!

    How can you rate a school where the state test results are sooo poor as anything but poor? The truth is, this is a small town school with small time administers and a student base that is difficult at best. If you are part of the good old boy network, your child will come out sparkling. Good luck if you aren't.

    Most of the other schools i have been to are a little different like the grading scale here is like 98 -100% is an a+ an many more this just makes it more challenging which is what the world needs for a change.
