This school is great. They are making changes coming this 2014-2015 school year. These changes will make this school way better then what it already was. Most teachers are great and push you and they get you to understand what they are teaching.

Bad teachers and administrators. The students are not the problem. The teachers give the students barely any teaching on the material and then they give the students tons of worksheets to do. At the end of the year a teacher would rush to teach material before the CRCT. In my opinion the only good years are the 6th and 8th grade. The 7th grade teachers will make your child's school year the worst school year they've ever had.

This is a great school. The teachers & Administration are wonderful. They are very attentive to my child. I'm pleased in all areas but... I think the school needs more books and supplies for the kids. My son was assigned homework with no textbook to refer to on a few occasions. Also, he told me that his pencil lead was very dull and he asked the teacher if he could borrow his and the teacher told him no. I remember when I was in school, a pencil sharpener was a basic necessity supplied by the school. Other than that everything else is fine.

We moved to the area intentionally in 1999 and have watched our sons all attend Austin Elementary and Middle school and are committed to keeping the academic tradition strong. We need additional community support to push our school over the top. Academically you won't get anybetter in 20 miles for a prodimently minority school unless it is a theme or magnet program.

Although there are some good teachers, this school is manly mediocre. The school is broke, students are often just stuffed in P.E since they have to close down all other connections. My son attended this school for two years, but we later moved and he is now going to Rex Mill Middle school, boy have we seen the difference!

I feel the school is more worried about how they score in different things than they do the kids.

This will be my 4th child to have attended this school. Although the test scores show this to be a wonderful school it is lacking in many other areas. Because it does not have a high school asociated with it (ex: Stockbridge High, Woodland High, etc) very little emphasis is placed on the athletic programs. They are poorly handled and poorly planned. Theonly exceptions are that we do have some wonderful coaches but they can only do what they are allowed to do by the school. Also, If there is ever a problem with a teacher you might as well not waste your breathe going to the administration because you will be the bad guy. There are teachers that are blatantly racist and bias to certain students and never held accountable. Good test grades are very important but the welfare and self esteem of a child is equally important.

This is a GREAT school. I may not be happy with everything, but one thing I can say is that my children are getting a good education and the school provides a safe, controlled environment for them to do it in..no unnecessary distractions or unruly students. The test scores speak for themselves..take a look at the top schools in other counties and do your own comparision. Unfortunately, my children are leaving soon but...Keep up the GREAT work Austin Road Middle!

No school has all the answers or will please every person but this school isn't the top performing school in the county for nothing. Is there areas of improvement, yes, but it involves all, parents, students, and teachers to ensure this school remains at the top. Respect has to come from across all lines. Strong involved parents are the key to ensure the students continued progress as well as support for the faculty and staff.

This school is not very concerned about students. I dislike the school because they are very careless and they do not teach students well dispite they were rated the number 1 school in Atlanta Magazine.

There are many things I would like to say and none of them are good. The teachers are very disrespectful and if they are here to teach students then they might want to start doing that. I highly disliked my teachers and most of the students' behaviors are despicable.

I have been in the Austin Rd district since its inception and can not tell you how the school has changed for the worse. The teachers and the administration are not the least bit concerned about the kids. No one is held accountable for the rude and nasty attitudes that we have encountered. I feel sorry for students that have to interact with some of the teachers there, we are looking into private school!

I'm very pleased with the academic rigor of this school. Many parents complain, but the school is always one of the top performing schools in the county year after year. That speaks volumes about the teachers and leadership.

I am not very pleased with Austin Road's teachers. The administration didn't seem very concerned.

I am totally dissatified with this school!! I am sorry I moved within the school's boundaries. I don't feel as if the teachers showed a genuine concern for my child . There were numerous occasions where my son came home and struggled with homework because the teachers failed to thoroughly present the material. In addition, the teachers on his team were mean, spiteful and rude.

I am dissatisfied with the academia. The majority of classes have an extreme number of worksheets passed out in class and for homework. If your child cannot teach himself/herself the material passed out, he/she could be doomed. Grades rely on worksheets completed and tests on the worksheets. Students fill them out in class and take more home for homework, often having little understanding of what went on in class, because there is not much teaching. Teachers are covering a lot of material to say they have been over it and are not doing much, such as teaching, to make sure their students master the material. There are other parents who feel the same way. Their children come home confused about the work they have done or are supposed to do and little do they know, it is because they weren't taught the lessons, they were just presented with the them.

The only people giving good reviews here are sixth graders and teachers being paid to work at ARMS. Come on, there is no diversity, it is 90% black and 10% other people being driven out. The kids are spoiled, rich, rotten and racist. The sports programs lack everything because the administration handicaps anything that is not academic. The academics are great -- if you can stand the environment. My kids are begging to leave.

This school is a wonderful school and it is the best scool in Hery County . Did you know that Austin Road Middle School has the best CRCT scores in Henry County . They also are great in athletics. And I know they are strict but they wont't do the things people might say they do. And I know because I am a student there.

My daughter survived this school. I see from the comments that nothing has changed. It's a horrible place to be. Either consider private school, homeschool, or move to a different county. Henry County Schools are terrible!

I think this school is wonderful it really helps to diversify students. The bad thing about this school is the attitudes that come with som of the teachers. I don't think they mean to be rude but they just are. The six grade teachers are good.

In all of my years as a an educator, I have never encountered a more professional and considerate staff, well-mannered, educated, and disciplined students as well as such strong leadership, driven towards increasing student success beyond a standardized test score.

My kids will never set foot in this school again. Should you choose this school, always put everything in writing, complains, requests, etc. Everything in writing! Accountability is for students only and never for the teacher or principal. Leadership in this school is at its all time low.
