According to Great Schools: "A great school has...Excellent teachers Strong principal/school leadership Challenging academic programs Anniston City Schools lacks all of these attributes.


Posted July 5, 2009

Being a governmnet official, i understand policy and funding bootlenecks,present at each step. Anniston Middle school has a responsive leadership and willing mentors and teachers and cooperative and friendly staff.Parent involvement is an issue,which obviously has nothing to do with the strength of school.My kids had a wonderful time there.Family broughtup and quality time of parents with their children will help them progress and to use available resources.

Anniston Middle School is a great place to learn something new and, as a student, you can expect to learn new things.

I like Anniston Middle School. Us as parents are going to have to stop blaming the schools and take some of the blame ourselves. Learning doesn't stop at 3pm, we have to teach at home. We have take an interest in our children education or our future will be lost. We will have a lot of children in the world that can't read or count money. Parents take a interest in your child education. Felicia Kirby

I just moved here and I really hated that I had to put my son in the school. He is a very sweet kid and he hates going to school. I wish the school did not have such a bad rep because it has so much potential. I appreciate the teachers that do try to motivated the students.
