My daughter just graduated from 8th grade and I can tell that its an excellent school. The teachers are incredible, the extra-curricular activites are outstanding. Not to mention the amazing drama program and its dedicated teacher Mrs. Barson. The students work hard but get their rewards for it. The school is in a safe environment and they motivate the students to be envolved in clubs and sports.
I don't know what the parent before is talking about. I have taught at Ammons for 10 years and I can confirm what others students have said. The workload is a bit much, but once you get a handle on it, you're off to a great future. This school is not for slackers, but for kids are truly serious about their school goals and their future. I LOVE AMMONS, THE FACULTY, THE KIDS, AND YES, EVEN THE PARENTS....
From my experience the 6th grade curriculum was very impressive. After that I do not even know what my child is learning in school for the exception of his math studies due to the lack of teacher parent interaction and lack of homework. The curriculum seems to have declined and homework is minimal if any at all. Not a challenging school after 6 grade.
Exceptional school. The administrators, teachers and PTSA actually CARE about the progress of the students, both their academic and personal development.
Because it has a great staff. They involve the parents and make them accountable. Even though the studies are hard & time consuming, still manage to implement lots of activities to make going to school fun. They reward good students, which is most of them. The schools is all portables but that has not stop the teachers, students, staff, & PTA from making this school top rated. Love it.
I'm a current 8th grader at Ammons, and the IB program is great. I never found it to be very difficult and it's very much worth it in the end. It's a pretty small school compared to all the other middle schools out there, so of course socially there is a lot of 'middle school drama' but overall most if not all of the students get into magnet high schools and i can safely say attending Ammons with a HUGE growing experience for me. I do think the school is a bit overrated in a sense but looking back on my 3 years i am proud that i was an eagle.
Hello, I am a parent of a child who went to Ammons. I am thankful that she attended this great middle school. She is now in one of the top rated high schools and will be on her way to an even better college, all due to the great start that she received in the IB program through Ammons. Next year my twin boys will be attending Ammons. I look forward to the many opportunities that Ammons will bring to them as well. Mind you, it is not just about Ammons, the student must perform as well. If the student is motivated alot can be achieved!
Excellent school! Great teachers! This school really prepares your child for a future!
I am currently an eighth grader at Ammons Middle and I am proud to say that I am an eagle. To all of those who are scared of receiving to much work and not having a social life your going to be surprised when I tell you this. the curriculum here is not that hard. we have wonderful teachers who dedicate themselves to the students and teach them everything they need to know. I myself am in the cheerleading squad and i am a straight A student. I promise you that if you choose this school you aren't going to regret it. I am proud to be class of '10. (:

I am currently a 6th grader going to 7th attending ammon. and I really enjoy this school alot..
I'm in 9th grade now...but I will always cherish ammons they teach you a lot about yourself as well. I never would have thought that one place of education could improve me so much, but there the teachers really care about you and make sure you achieve greatness. it's one of the best schools...no one compares. I miss it a lot.
I'm an 8th grader at Ammons, and I just have to say that I love and will miss miss this school very much. Mr. Adler was great, and although he isn't our principal anymore we still have great teachers and other faculty members. They all want you to do your best and do great things. The work load is pretty heavy, but once you're in your last lear like I am, it's very easy and do-able. The sports are great and we do very well and we have a cheerleading team. I myself am in track and on the cheerleading squad. This school is just amazing, I had so many great memories and I will miss it. If you want your child to have fun, be in a good school environment, and get a good education Ammons is for you.
