GMS is a great school. Access to challenging curriculum and fine arts. The principal is strict and keeps the kids in line, something many of their parents can't or won't do. I feel my child is safe, in an optimal learning environment, and will be well prepared for high school.
My son entered Gadsden Middle (GMS) as a 6th grader. GMS really does a good job of transitioning six grade students from elementary to middle school. Six graders have their own hall and are separated from the 7th and 8th for 95% of their school day. Seventh grade has been a different ball game. This year my son hardly ever has homework. 7th grade math and science are a joke, which probably contributed to why 40% of the Gadsden City class of 2008 did not graduate and the school s low SAT scores. GMS is ironically considered the best middle school in Gadsden. This misconception is really sad. There are many good kids here who deserve a quality education. We are actually moving out of Gadsden this summer, so our children can receive a better overall quality of education.
Gadsden Middle School is a wonderful school to attend. It is by far the absolute best school in the Gadsden City School System. The test scores are higher, the teachers are better, and the atmosphere is calm. If you are looking for a school for your chid go and check out Gadsden Middle. I'm sure that you will find that it is a fantastic school!
The school is strict which I find positive in todays world. My daughter loves this school. She transferred this year. Has not had any problems at all. Very glad I chose Gadsden Middle/Disque over Sardis!!!!!!
