This schoool I think is not schoool approite his schoool to myself being a student is very.......... I think that students here need more learnnig activites instead of reading out of a textbook The teachers here are very........... and this schooo could use improvmens. But the apps are amazing! Band choir ( choir rocks!) art, journalsiim it rocks! But eerything else/.........
the principal at this school is a great influence to the students and the teachers as well.
The principal is bad, and i believe that the teachers are pure lackluster.
I am going into the 8th grade at HMS. I love it here. I have made many friends and have learned many great things. This school has taught me many lessons which I will live by. Thank you Teachers and Staff for giving me a good middle school experience!
My son, attends HMS and has been a student since the 6th grade. I have seen the maturity and the growth that HMS has assisted in rearing when my husband and I are away working. The staff and the school will always have a place in our hearts! Thanks, HMS!! Thank you teachers for TEACHING..NOT BABYSITTING!! AWL
I just wanted to say how pleased I am with Hueytown Middle School! This school has showed great improvement in the last 2 years. The hard work that has been done to secure our childrens future is finally begining to show! I love the teachers, staff and the overall good attitude of all the children. I did not rate this a 5 star school because of low parental involvement!!!
I am very pleased what the new staff at HMS has done. It is about time they have a principal and staff who help keep our kids in line. Kids today need to learn discipline and respect. HMS is doing a good job of that.
The school is better than is was when I was in 6th and 7th, mostly thanks Mr.Mcarty and Co. I'm taking honors Algebra one this year. I think that the school could do with more extracurricular activities, and that means more tachers and parents willing to take time from their lives to let their kids do things. And when I say extracurricular, I mean Academic stuff, we have plenty of sports, but there's not much for the clumsy among us to do.
My son has been in pittman middle school for 2 years now (6th and 7th grade). The elective and honors classes are good. My son has been in math honors and science honors for the past 2 years. These subjects are gradually getting harder and more advanced. By the time high school comes around, he will be in math ap calcu/trig and science ap chemistry. This will be essential to his college life and later on in his career. I am glad that pittman (it really all begins in hueytown elementary, a wonderful school) offers these classes. But the main prop that i have to give to pms is to the new principal and vice principal this 04/05 year. They are strict but it is needed for middle schools. I commend mr. Mccarty (principal) and his staff for the education & disipline at pms. Good job!
My child has been in honors classes grades 7 & 8. She has had to work, but not as hard as might be expected for honors. I'm glad honors classes are offered. She is happier with the new administration for the most part. At 14, most adults seem 'ignorant.' Band and Scholars Bowl have been good for extra curricular activity. I would be more involved as a parent, but work far from the school. One or both of us parents attend SB meets, band concerts, and other special events and try to help where/when we can. While PMS is not the best it could be, it is adequate. The administration appears to be striving to be better, which is great.
I think this school is okay. One problem they are to hard, Pittman is not a bad school, but they are to hard and children complain about getting in trouble to much because I had a daughter who was on the A honer roll and was getting Dentetions every morning. The new admistristion is strict and I think Pittman needs to look further out to find good, not so uptight Vice principles. I personally think it is alright school, but the Male vice principle is very strict and needs to Go!
Pittman always has been a wonderful school. We have tried for many years to have more parental involvement but were unsuccessful. For some reason a few more parents have become wiser and realized that 'it takes a village.' Pittman has always had caring, professional teachers, they just were not recognized as they should have been.
What a wonderful school this is this year. What a difference a year makes with a new administration in place. Our kids are in a safe well disciplined school this year, which means education is being emphasized. It has had an overhaul in so many ways. We have a beautiful new state of the art lunchroom and new ceiling tiles and paint. The attitude of the staff is upbeat and they seem happy to be there. I am so glad I have 2 children in this school. Thank you Jefferson County School Board for making the changes that made all of this possible. Randy McCarty and Brett Kirkham are doing an excellent job.
Pittman is an older school. It has been repainted some but could use some other cosmetic help. My child has been at Pittman for 2and 1/2 years now and has never had a problem. She has had good teachers overall and a great experience.
Pittman has been neglected for many years, as a concerned parent I hope to see many positive changes through the PAC and C.A.R.E. committees that have been formed by concerned parents, citizens, Pittmans Administrators and Teachers. Our children deserve the best and if you walk through and around Pittman you can see that our children are not in the best situation.
