Our son is thriving at Angevine, and we are consistently impressed by the school's staff. Everyone - from the administrators, teachers, counselors and support staff - seems genuinely engaged with students and their individual academic and social success. This is HUGE for middle school! They have set up systems for students to feel part of the community, but able to "do their own thing," and to teach responsibility/accountability along the way. Our son decided to take one of the before-school classes, and even though this means getting up earlier, he can't wait to get there every day. He's finally challenged at the right level and excited about the things he's learning both in and outside the classroom (yes, that means he's doing his homework without complaint!). The diversity and welcoming feeling from the students themselves is also remarkable - lots of smiles, kindness and respect is evident from the way they speak to and treat one another. I am so grateful that Angevine is our 'neighborhood school' or I might not have chosen it based on ratings. It is a gem!

Angevine is the best kept secret in Boulder Valley School District! This is my 4 th with kids at Angevine. It is an amazing school. Principal Mike Medina has really turned this school around! My children are in the Talented and Gifted Program and are more than challenged. Their CSAP growth scores indicate what a great education they are getting at Angevine. In addition, my kids love it! They feel safe and love all the before and after school clubs available. The school has diversity, which is what the real world is about!

My daughter told me just today that she loves angevine and is so happy to go there. She described the kids as 'happier and more normal' because they are 'not snobby or hung up on status and all the stuff they own.' She has made many good and solid friendships with kids from all types of background. She tells me that she is comfortable there and feels liked and supported by her teachers. She's on the honor roll and is in a few gift & talented classes and she is continually challenged. We are very pleased with the school, the administration, the teachers and familes who attend there.

Angevine Middle School is everything a neighborhood school should be. The teachers and staff are dedicated, creative, and committed to making sure that all students succeed. There are ample opportunities for students to explore interests in extracurricular as well as academic activities (including engineering). Angevine builds a nurturing educational environment that extends beyond the classroom to strengthen our community as a whole, which is the kind of lesson that will last a lifetime. We are fortunate to have Angevine Middle School as our neighborhood school.

I have 2 students that have or are currently attending Angevine Middle School. I'm continually amazed how creative the teachers are and how they create an incredible learning environment. They are also very responsive when I have questions or concerns. The same goes for the administration. AMS is a great school!

Angevine is a wonderful school. It has a made a tremendous turn around thanks to new principal, Mike Medina. The school is a completely safe environment where children can focus on learning. The teachers use real world examples and hands on learning. Angevine has a large and very successful TAG program. It also offers the pre-engineering program that feeds into our local high school's program. By following the pre-engineering model, kids can earn credits towards college classes at CU Boulder. The arts and music are also well represented with a band, orchestra, and jazz band.

I love Angevine. We have great teachers and it is a fun place to be. The teachers are involved and push us to be all that we can.

The principle is amazing, and extremely helpful. The teachers are run down by having to teach all the grades, not just one. The extracurricular activities are limited, with different chances for boys than girls. This school would disappear if it weren't for the parent involvement. There is little discipline, if any.

Angevine is wonderful. It is an unusual school blending cultures, educational levels, gifted, and special ed (or resource) kids beautifully. Though the school is large, it has a great layout that prevents it from being overwhelming. The teachers all work very hard and generally are clued in. Sometimes they need reminding by parents. The principal is on top of things, knows what's going on and is very proactive. My kid who is a resource kid has blossomed at Angevine. They have bent over backwards to accomodate his needs while also giving him direction and not pampering him. He has a huge range of services provided to him from a 'quiet' lunch to using a computer for class instead of handwriting. All to faciliate his learning process. He does not feel he is wierd or different at all. He has made many friends and is happy and learning.!

Teachers at Angevine are hard-working and dedicated, but are given inexplicable teaching assignments. For instance, instead of having one teacher specialize in 7th grade life science, another in 6th grade physical science, and another in 8th grade earth science, each science teacher is supposed to teach all three subjects. This means less thought and preparation can go into each lesson. Morale among teachers is sinking as the principal restructures the school in increasingly strange ways. However, there is a nice mix of kids here, and the teachers who remain care a lot about the kids.

I have been very pleasantly surprised by this school. My child has made a great adjustment to Middle School, looks forward to his day and has some wonderful teachers. We have had a great experience with the staff and admin.

This school has a total lack of discipline and I believe one of the worst schools in the area. It's unfortunate because the potential is there but the administration doesn't get it.
