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.
I am going to this school next year and so far i am hearing a lot of good thing about it and i cant wait!
I'm going to this school (6th Grade) and so far i have heard from my friends that its a great school, its fun, and that the teachers are very nice.
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.
i go to this school and its awesome. i love the teachers and the curriculum its up and above on the state standards and supervising staff is great and friendly.
I go to this school and I'm going to 7th grade and I love this school its soo much fun and the teachers and staff are so nice
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!
I am very dissapointed that this school will not have a Choral Music Program in the 2005-06 school year.
Great school for kids. My daughter loves this school and couldn't imagine any other middle school could have better teachers! This school is a wonder!
