  • Can't imagine a better middle school!!!Parent 05/21/2015
    I could not be more pleased with this school. The teachers and administration do an incredible job. We were in CLUE both Mrs. Varriano and Mrs. Brenneman took the time to know my son and challenged him appropriately. The skills he learned in their classes and expectations set will have a positive impact forever. Mr. Page reminds the students of their worth and challenges them to be the best person they can be daily. I could go on and on- but instead will say if you are considering this school- please call and schedule a tour.
  • Consistent Excellence Parent 05/07/2015
    White Station Middle School continues to provide an excellent learning and social environment for students. My family has had a presence at the school since 2008 when the 1st of 3 sons attended; we'll be there until 2017. Over the years the school has been consistent in excelling in national rankings challenging students academically and providing all the other activities that help make school fun: from great friendships to sports to school dances. It well prepared our oldest son who takes a slew of AP courses at White Station High School. Our family highly recommends this school.
