I'm a current 8th grade student at AMMS, and let me just warn you... The 8th grade teachers are absolutely HORRIBLE! They don't know how to teach at all; instead, they just sidetrack into their personal life stories, which no one wants to hear because we want to learn :P Please save your child from this school.
My son is in 7th grade at AMMS - he couldn't be happier. He says that the teachers are inspiring, fun, and care about the students. There are many, many after school activities to chose from - check the website for details.
Autrey Mill is a truly wonderful Middle School. These years are such a difficult time for most young people and the staff at AMMS continues to rise to the occasion. The counselors dealt with a mild bullying issue with my son last year quickly and efficiently. Academically the coursework is challenging and students are encouraged to be independent and long range thinkers. I have had wonderful contact with teachers as needed. Jimmy Zoll, the principal, is a very caring person who tries to know all of his students and is very hands on. He is truly one of the better principals I have known in Fulton Co. The building is state of the art and well maintained. Kudos to AMMS!
My child has (mild) special needs, and this school has been great for us. Of course, I had acquired independent testing and medical documentation, so there was no debating the needs. The counselors have been very helpful and the teachers very understanding. The staff has overall been very caring. Kids will be kids; some are nice and some are mean, but I truly believe that in most schools, the social situation would be far worse. I have heard about some teachers taking measures to prevent bullying; they can't stop all of it, but I think it helps. I'm happy that I moved here to benefit from this school.
I am in High School this is honestly the best middle school in the state of Georgia. My name is Jake I play on the local high school football team and on the lacrosse team. Autrey Mill has everything anyone would want from a school, extracurricular activities, like tennis or track, to clubs run by teachers in the school. All the teachers at Autrey Mill provide an environment that is easy to learn in. The only problem with Autrey Mill is the science department, but the department is still descent compared to most schools. I am an A, B student and Autrey Mill made me what I am today. I give this school five stars.
As a parent of a child who was not bullied, but was caught in the middle between the buliles and the bullied, I can say the school does not deal with this problrm in a satisfactory manner. Academics: The Language Arts and Science curriculum were very poor and the teachers marginal, even at the "TAG' Level. The best dept is Social Studies. Math was just okay. They took incredible amounts of time away from academics to 'prep' for the CRCT. Even brought in CRCT coaches - and guess what - their scores are going down. The vast majority of the parents have at least college degrees (if not post grad) and Johns Creek is the richest neighborhood in GA. so this school should rock. Instead it just barely gets by. Really disappointed
I am a sixth Grader Most of my teachers are mean and hate me but there is no bullying well for me, I cant say that for everyone though.
Some of these comments are really mean. I am a sixth grader in this school, and this is the best school I have ever been to. They have amazing teachers and staff and the facility is so cool. This school is only 7 years old and it is really fun. There is no bullying at all. BEST SCHOOL EVER!
i love this school. I am a 6th grader and I love almost all of my teachers they are great!!!
Love this school!!!!! I am a student going on to 7th grade and there is no bullying! The counseling department is great at handling these types of situations which none of which has to me or my friends. The teachers are extremely nice and i bet the parents who say that this is a bad school doesn't evn go to AMMS. I have never been excited to go to school before. This school changes everything.
AMMS has exceeded our experiences at top Atlanta private schools as well as public schools in the Midwest. Caring teachers, challenging curriculum and exceptional facilities. One of the best middle schools in Georgia and the Southeast.
This school is a joke! There is a lot of bullying here. The administration doesn't know how to deal with this problem. The kids here don't know respect or compassion of others.
this school is the worst school ive ever seen, all the peoplethere treated me with total disrespecet. i would not recomend this school to anyone. everyone there is a bully
Great facilty, great teachers, great parent involment and great admiinstrators,.....what a great example for all schools......
This is a great school. The Principal has great leadership and the teachers are very responsive to parent's concern. It is a very organized school.
I don't feel like the curriculum is rigorous enough to prepare the students for high school. The teachers pamper these upper class kids and are scared to step on toes. Teachers don't really help with the typical middle school student problems. We weren't close to any of the teachers like we were at Haynes Bridge.
My son did not enjoy this school at all. There were frequent bullying problems, and the teachers would not respond to e-mails, phone calls, etc. He also gets around 3 hours of homework each night and on the weekends. This has affected his schedule for sports. We are going to a different school.
Great academic atmosphere. Wonderful principle who loves this age and makes a very nurturing atmosphere. This school is one of the best in the area. I'ts only 3 years old and they won the academic bowl for the state. They have a lot to offer for the kids with all the clubs and sports. I have had other children in private schools and love that because it felt like being in a big family. That is what this school atmosphere is like.
