I am a student at avms in 7th grade. im so happy with all my teachers but my favorites are the art and 3d art teacher, mrs.zuer and the social studies teacher, mrs.aston. I love going to this school, all my friends go there and there is nothing to complain about. Although I live right near niguel hills, I'm very happy I go to avms. Please come to this school!

My two children attended Aliso Viejo Middle School (AVMS) and had a wonderful learning experience while attending AVMS. The administration and staff are motivated and care about all the students at AVMS. There is wonderful support from the parents and they have an active PTSA program. The students at AVMS are motiviated to reach their goals.

I attend this school. My Social Studies teacher, Mrs. Heavlin-Martinez, or "Mrs. H" as her students cordially call her, is deserving of the title "Top Teacher of Orange County". I say this as her student of two years,(7th and 8th grade) which have been the most entertaining and educational of my time here at AVMS. Mrs. H breathes life and learning into her class by bringing an energetic attitude and warmth into the classroom each day. She shares her kindness every day with the classroom, for she truly cares about the education of her students and their potential. She highlights the potential she sees in each student with her special teaching skills, group conversations, projects, and the opportunity to earn extra credit by reading. I am a better student by having Mrs. H as my teacher.

I was always told that DJams was the school of choice for middle school but am so glad we went with AVMS .my daughter is currently a straight A student she has had great teachers for both her 6th and 7th grade school their science club is top notch and really inspires young girls to challenge themselves to go into science as a career . The Prinipal does an outstanding job communicating to the students and parents. I love this school

We transferred mid-year from a charter school and have been so impressed! This school is top-notch, high caliber of teaching, consistent discipline policies actually enforced fairly, proactive leadership, positive rewards / recognition. My creative child is thriving in the safe, stimulating and calm classroom environments and he wasn't in the creative charter school we've happily left behind. Incredible irony. AVMS is an excellent school. Highly recommend.

So far my child has been happy with this school, his grades are excellent and he had no complainted to me about anything. I do have to say that there is a consern about kids spending too much time by the park. I've heard these kids are trouble maker kids.. where are these kids parents? regarding kids bullying other kids I have only one thing to say: Parents stand up for your kids, don't be afraid..! USD has nothing to do with you not stopping the situation..!!!!! it is your kid for God sakes.!!! talk to the bully's parent....

We expected alot from this National Blue Ribbon school so we should have expected to be a little disappointed. My son hates going to school each day. He is bullied and although we have followed the advice of the administration, the perpetrators have seen no consequences and the bullying continues. I am at the point where I will take another job to finance private school, if this is the best Capistrano USD has to offer in a middle school.

The school is great. We had our tiny bumps here and there but the teacher and staff are great and have been really helpful the entire three years I was there. However if there was one thing i would change its the fact that if you have refferals you cant get into all year classes. I find that it is not a way to build better habits among students with discipline problems but in fact worsens them by cutting them off from a way to vent through their talents weather that be singing, art, or drama. But other than that the school is great and any parent should feel great sending their student there.

This is a great school. Unlike most schools we run the mile every week to stay fit and healthy. We also have great fund raisers and school supplies. There is a great learning enviornment and the food is great!

Our son is a top student at AVMS and we are very happy with the school environment, teaching staff, curriculum, parent activities, broad assortment of special classes and extracurricular activities. From the Capistrano School District to the individual teachers, there is every calculated effort to prepare the students for college and this benefits even those not bound for college. We have excellent communication through emails and websites and frequent opportunities to talk directly with our son's teachers. We think highly of the schools generally in this area but AVMS has earned its Blue Ribbon status.

AVMS is an outstanding school. Any parent should feel comfortable sending their children here. Teachers are wonderful, helpful, and challenge their students. The school provides materials necessary for students to learn. Parent volunteers are on campus at all times. Parents who cannot help out on camps are very involed with staff and know what their children are doing in class, how they are behaving, etc. Overall, a wonderful school!
