The technology and opportunities at this school through the magnet program are wonderful! My husband went to Attucks and we chose Attucks for our children.
My school is Attucks Middle, one of the best Magnet school Broward County has. My children enjoy being at school and the report card shows how well the teachers invest in my children education. Teachers and staff at Attucks do care.
Attucks Middle is located next to the railroad trucks... it is not the famous expensive neighborhood but it is the hard working family community. Attucks Middle proved high educational achievement by its Eagles - and proud to be a part of Attucks Middle family, thanks to strong educational foundation built in the school.
This is an awesome school!. The students are great, so are the staff and the many wonderful parents who truly support this great learning institution. Way to go Attucks!!!
Attucks Middle is a great middle school. It is a safe and wonderful place for teaching and learning.
Except for my high level classes, this school's behavior is out of control. The teachers for the high school and advanced classes and the classes themselves are wonderful. However, once out of these classes, it is a dangerous school. Despite what other kids and parents have said, I have been there for 3 years. Attucks is dangerous (except in certain classes.) Stay away. It was not this bad last two years but has gotten seriously worse. Besides that, I believe I have recieved a good education here.
This year in 2013, we have a new principal, Mr. Evans. He's still getting the layout of the land, but is certainly making advancements in and around the school. He is putting forth his best efforts to keep Attucks middle school safe and secure and comfortable learning environment for all of the students. This is my last year at the school and I'm proud to say that I have enjoyed being a eagle. Just like every other middle school in the county, though, you're going to get out what you put in to your education. The advanced teachers and high school teachers in the school are well educated and have positive attitudes about the school every day when you walk in. They thrive to incorporate the available technology resources that we have into their lesson plans and curriculums, which is an added bonus that you won't find any where else in the county on a middle school level. The last and most important thing I have to say about the school is how great the administrators are. They form bonds with the children during the three year looping cycle and couldn't have a better organized school system. Don't miss out on the opportunity to send your child to this phenomenal school! -MKAZ
This my last year at Attucks and it's the best school! I am in a Honor Class(Math) and Advanced Placement classes and am enrolled in 3 High School Classes. There is a new principal, Mr. Evans, he is okay. At first, I thought he was slow, and they made a mistake of letting go of Ms. Hall (former principal) but he is still trying to get the routine of being principal. Administration is great with helping them. They do hallway sweeps and have a great security staff. There are many extracurricular activities, which include, National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) , First Priority, Math Club (Mathletes), Attucks Broadcasting Club (ABC), Sports (Track/Soccer/ Basketball), Cheerleading, Dance Club/Team, FFEA (Florida Future Educators of America), Student Council/Government. And, of course, a rigorous curriculum, making schoolwork challenging. I'm sad to leave this school but i'm proud to say I'm an EAGLE!!!
At this school year, we trust Attucks Middle school teachers and staff to give the best gifts to our children the gift of teaching this community, of helping them grow and succeed; the gift of inspiring a love of learning. And in my opinion, the best gift a teacher can give, is the gift of enthusiasm.
Last week I went to Open House at this school. My daughter is in the 8th grade and has advanced placement classes and is gifted. I immediately pulled her out of the school despite the fact she loved her new teachers. In fact, I thought they were excellent, as well. However, having met the new principal, I shudder to think this person is in charge of a school. A strange and slow man who seemed to know nothing about the school two other of children attended with a wonderful principal named Ms. Hall. However, there is something extremely distressing about this Mr. Evans who seems to be unaware of so many things and, personally, not too smart. One assistant, Mrs. Tate, who I trusted from before, tried to explain away Evans' newness to no avail. Personally, Mrs. Tate should be the principal. Something is wrong in this school with this principal. Some of the long-term teachers remain, but would not say anything about the principal. I know and trust these teachers, but they seem unhappy this new principal is there. Good-bye Attucks.
Poor communication, lack of genuine interest in education for some instructors. 2011. some teachers have left the school with out any notice to the parents. It is very difficult to contact the instructors. School use a phone mail to communicate any event. When following about grades, you MUST register online to see by yourself your child progress. Grades every day, and parents and report is unclear The report doesn't show an accurate information. When you ask to your child why is the reason of a low or missed grade they say...the teacher has no posted my grades yet..Teachers do not provide feedback to the student about their progress, kids need to be responsible by themselves to check online if they are missing or to see what grades they have earned. It's very uncertain how well my child will progress or learn in the school. It seems the teacher just are busy putting grades -too busy teaching- the kids..Instructor send letters to the parents to "inform" about their rules in classroom or about their "background/experience" and education -partners in education- but when you try to reach them by e-mail, letters or by phone, rarely are available for you! I am very concerned!
Attucks is a great school! im a 6th grader this year and the moment i saw attucks i knew it was the right school for me. All the kids there are nice to me and support me in trouble times. The teachers help me with my homework and my problems and the spirit days there let you express your true colors! if your looking for a school choose attucks cause you will have the time of your life.

I was worried about my son going to Attucks until I found out that mrs shaw was the princible there..mrs shaw used to be the counseler at Bair middle and always looked after her students 3 of which happened to be mine..I know that she cares a great deal about each and every one of her students, and anyone one who has anything bad to say about Attucks obviously has not had their child attend this great school!! I'm just sad to say that my son is going to high school next year cause I would love for him to stay in Attucks for the remaining 4 years of high school..so mrs shaw if your reading this I would love if you went to work at hills for the next 4years...love ya always and keep up the great work!!!love the ortiz family
wow , attucks middle school s so fun (: , i love it and its principal .
oh my got attucks, attucks, attucks! best ever middle school. dont listen to the people who say attucks is a bad school because principal shaw is the BEST principal! i went to the open house yesterday and they have a great magnet program; it lets you cycle through all of the 3 magnets,(journalism, tv broadcast, and graphic computer design)for 9 weeks each and for the last of the 4 9 week stretches you get to pick which magnet you want to go back to a 2nd time. they have great sports, basket ball, flag football, soccer, and swimming, the teachers are very fun but set on learning, and for homework(6th grade)you take home a laptop and basically make up a slideshow and show it in front of the class. go to attucks i got to experience it at the open house!!!
My kids were assigned to Attucks Middle but I moved them out. Most of the teachers were wonderful. The current (2008/9) principal is not. Many of the great teachers left and only a few of them remain. Something isn't right here anymore and I suspect it's the principal. Stay away until it's safe. Great magnet program, though. They even have high school math and foreign language classes. Still, stay away until this principal leaves.
Horrible school, but great magnet program. Don't attend unless you have to.
I love this school! Even though I teach at a great middle school, I have allowed my child to continue at Attucks. The leadership and passion of the administration is inspiring.
