My daughter has went to this school for 3 years and is Vice President of honors society and plays all the sports for athletics. There are some teachers at this school who are less attentive to the students than others but as a whole this is a really great school. The athletics department could use some improvement. I think it is all about the individual student in mean of succeeding and doing well at this school.

I attended this school 3 years and have hated it from the beginning. My parents have hated the school as well but kept me there because all the other middle schools were around 10 times as bad. Not all of the teachers are horrible, but a lot of them are. Few teachers actually care if the student passes or not. The 'ex' principal (they're now getting a new one) as well as her assistant principals never cared about the students, and where always enforcing new rules, taking away our freedom. Of course, as a student, it would seem natural for me to say that, but when you can't do just about anything I think I have the right to say that. I do have to say though, even without freedom I would have liked to of had, they did give wonderful curriculum.

My son graduated from AMMS this year and I thought this was a great school. We came from a state that was far ahead of Texas in academics and they did all they could to make sure my son got the education he needed by putting him in pre-ap classes and encouraging him to get into TAG. All of the teachers and coaches were always there for my son and always pushing him to do better. I believe my son is well prepared for high school, actually over prepared for the high school in his district - I would highly recommend this school!

My son graduated from AMMS this past Spring. The teachers and staff were more interested in following the schools prison like rules than actually teaching. My son and I were very disappointed with the academics of this school and feel that the level of education received did not adequately prepare the students for high school.

Horrible school!!! 2 out of all my son's teachers would return calls or emails. Principal has a dismissive attitude when parents ask for help to find out if your child has missing work and you can't get the teachers to respond.

My son graduated from AMMS last year, the teachers and staff are very caring, and in my experience, extremely accessible.

Oh this just doesnt make me feel good. We are moving to Hood this summer and I am not sure if this is the school my daughter will go to but she has social deficits and is a bully magnet. The thing is, I have been around many schools and can tell you that getting parents together to take a stand is far better than sending your child somewhere else. I don't stand for that type of unprofessional behavior and a school staff that doesn't put the child's safety and happiness first. I also have worked in school systems in the DOD for five years now and know how things work. I won't stand for it, so don't any of you!

I am glad to see that others would agree with me about the staff at this school. I am sad however that this is the case. Most of my students teachers this year are pretty good. I do realize that there are several teachers and other staff there that just don't care (mostly the administrative staff.) I am a parent and am going to go to the board about several issues and so would encourage parents to continue voicing their complaints. Together maybe we can make a difference. We as parents should not have to feel bad about sending our children to school to get an education. My experience with this school has been awful. Starting at the front desk with the rudest, most unprofessional secretary I have ever come in contact with ,all the way to the principle to sets her owns rules and changes them as she see's fit.

I'm not fond of this school at all. They don't encourage parent involvement. And as for students who are victims of bully--forget about it--bullies have more rights than the victims. My son is looking at going to an alternative school because he expressed anger and frustration in a note towards a bully. When I confronted the school about this they asked my son wright a statement, the school has it reported that this student (the person my son threaten to retaliate towards) as a bully and told my husband and I that they will keep an eye on this bully but they are not. He still continues to harrass my son when he sees him in the hallway. But the shcool doesn't care. So he will be enrolling in a different school next year.

I don't think that you could have a better middle school!

The academic programs are not geared towards 'cooperative learning'. I feel based upon my own personal observations, that alot of the teachers at this school are not conducting a comprehensive task analysis when doing their lesson plans. There is no parent/teacher/student involvement. Parents are only involve when their is an issue/concern with your child. I always have to initate a communication with the Administrative staff and teachers to get feedback on my childs' performance. A lot of the teachers display a 'I do not have time to help your child pass this class because I have 100 other students I need to help. One child lost is not important to me.' This is the attitude that I see from the Adminstrative staff, teachers, and the leadership team.

I do not think they allow parent involvement at this school much unless you 'know someone'. Terrible leadership!

I agree,parent involvement is almost not allowed at this school. I believe it is the leadership of this school that makes it a bad school. If you can send your kids somewhere else, do it.

I too, would like to know what amms the other children are attending. I have 2 years experience with this school...It stinks! the teachers at amms, or the ones i've met, are only in it for the money. They don't care what happens to the student, they just send them into the hall to sit, or to the office to sit so they don't have to deal with them...Pretty sad, i think. The principle is terrible at this school. She thinks she is above all others and if there is much intelligence there, she doesn't show it. They don't try to get to the bottom of problems, as teachers and the principle has said, 'we don't have time to listen to each students problems, we have too many students'. Then in my opinion, get teachers and a principle that has time for students.
