Mr. Koppes and Mrs. Koppes are great caring teachers and principle. They are the best thing about this school. Ms. Cox however is horrible. Last years 2012/2013 7th grade math teacher was awful. After 20 years of being the science teacher they put her as a math teacher. She would have to leave the classroom and go and ask a 8th grader how to do the math. My child has lost a whole year of math because of her. She should be ashamed of herself and step down from her job. On the other hand I just dont see anyone caring about it. I hear she is getting moved to 6th grade math this year. One more generation of kids that dont know what they are doing. All of the other teachers I come in contact with have been wonderful. Mr Grady is an excellent coach. However the band teacher should not be coaching any sport. Keep all of the Koppes and get rid of Cox.

As one of the few members of the parent club I find some of these remarks interesting. Are there good and bad teachers? Sure. Is it very difficult to get parents involved? Yes. Even so, the school consistently earns a similar school score from the state higher than most middle schools in the county (this can be found at www.cde.gov). The school has some very dedicated teachers who practically live on campus like Ms. Evans and Mr. Koppes, one of those libeled by the parent decrying and misspelling nepotism below. FYI, the reason he coaches so much is because no one else will. VOLUNTEER! I am sure he'd be very happy to do much less coaching. He also volunteers to be on the School Site Council each year. Our community struggles with the poverty trap and the school offers parenting and work skills classes to support the community. Overall, this school works very hard to meet the needs of all students. It offers tons of math and reading intervention programs and has an award winning band program rivaling any in northern California.

Evans= best Algebra teacher EVER and she makes math almost fun. She's hilarious and does surprising things. One time she did a summersault in class. It was epic. My teachers helped and encouraged me while I was writing my grad speech :) I was to AMS for all of middle school. When you're a 6th grader the WEB leaders work hard to help plan activities and make sure you have a great time. By the time I was an 8th grader I was a WEB leader too and it was fun. The people reviewing this school as "unclean school, fatty foods, etc." are crazy. Dave is not only the best janitor EVER but he's also a great basketball coach. He is always cleaning and making jokes. Everyday at lunch he would ask my friends and I, "Can I take your tray ladies?" and he did. I've never heard him complain. The Chefs make ok food(it's school food so it's not going to be the "best food ever." Hey Jack, it's not bad for less than $1! -reduced-)and you're required to get something from the salad bar. There's no reason why we would be getting overweight from eating school lunches. As for the dress code complaints blame the kids' parents. THEY should be their kids' fashion police. We DO have dress codes. YOU LIARS!

this is the most amazing school ever. ms. evans (8th grade math/science teacher) is the coolest teacher youll ever meet.

Anderson Middle School is a horribal School.#1 Nepitisum #2 Favortisum #3 BAD! coaching #4 No Dresscode #5 Mood swinging teachers. All the school spirt has been drained from this school. But I guess thats how it goes when a school becomes a family ran bussiness that is being ran in to the dirt!. in my opinion you need to hire some one who will do there JOB! and clean that place up and restore school pride and spirt.. it is sad when mommy hires her son to coach everthing. little girls are allowed to run around half naked and no one does a thing about it and the principal states that she is not the fashion police well if she is not the fashion police then i would like to know who is because the should be fired!!!!! That school is a mess the only good thing AMS has is a awsome band program...

I think certain perfect 6th grade teachers are horrible !! I think that the school lunches are disgusting and thats why are children over weight . The principle should be fired !!

The teachers and administrators are caring and work very hard to see that your student is successful. They offer advanced classes, band, electives, leadership, GEAR UP, and intervention classes. AMS also offers Project Share and after school program, accepting ALL students. I highly recommend that you call to schedule a visit if you have questions. They are very friendly and quite helpful.

This school has a dedicated staff. We have moved around a lot in the area and at most schools you can't find a teacher on campus when you get off work to talk to. Several of my kids' teachers are always there and available. Also, my boy's reading has improved dramatically since he transfered to this school last year.

I have been a parent involved in AMS for the past 3 years. My kids have had a great and well-rounded experience. The school does need updating, but thankfully the voters passed Measure C. I recommend this school, especially if you are willing to be involved in keeping it a great place.

Needs complete overhaul of administration and some new, young, creative and excited teachers who really 'like' kids.

Being a student at this school i do not like it. the bathrooms are never clean and very unsanitary.The teachers are very favoring.the last thing i can think of is that it is hard to learn at this school because it is almost always loud and its very insecure. through all this there is actually a in my opinion one good thing about this school.It is their band program.I am a part of it and its incredible.through all this the school is falling apart

Wow... what can I say... this school and the district are falling apart. There is no leadership and the school board has no idea what they are doing. It's too bad because this use to be a good school. You might want to think about an alternative school for your child.

We have been very disappointed with this school. Our son has difficulty with reading which transfers over into other subjects. It is difficult to get most of the teachers to return a phone call or email with information about his progress. The school is disorganized and not very clean.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
