Our school has been changing since last year. We have a new Principal that supports the students and teachers. He has gone around campus to clean it himself! He is purchasing technology for all classrooms to have. I know there are bad reports but we are doing great this year! We have smaller class sizes compared to our closest middle school. For our military parents/students we have a transition center to help you transition to a new school. Teachers do care about their students. I'm a proud teacher of AMS! #GoPanthers
The teachers and the staff do not care. I have to constantly notify staff to get an update on my child and they act like I'm bothering them. I also had to buy books for social studies because the school did not have enough books
All schools have their issues. This school is not exempt. However many of the issues could be remedied through parent involvement. Its easy for each entity to point their fingers and blame the other!! However it is through a strong relationship with parents and the school that the child and school will be successful.
Since i have been a part of this schools functions i havent seen any parent involvement. There are many opportunities to volunteer... To be an active part of the childrens educational activities, to just help out but yet no one shows up. Change happens through participation... Its easy to complain and make it everyone elses issue BUT if you arent going to be a part of the solution then you are part of the problem. These teachers and staff are only partly responsible... Parent and students share equal responsibility in the sucess and growth of the child. I understand many people work... But zero involment for nearly 800 students isnt justified.
if you put positive in positive will come out... Until then people will continue to spread around the misconceptions that are a result of no involvement or participation.
My advice is Show up when there are activity days, coffee hours, ptso meetings and functions. Volunteer for book fairs, sports, copy cat club, school clean up and improvement projects, and the many other volunteer projects! Bring your ideas and support!! Working together is the way to make this school great!! The Potential is there!! Get involved and stay involved...
I went to this school fearing it would be hard since I'm military but it's not. This school is very diverse and easy to make any friends. Yes this school isn't the cleanest but, they redid many things and the campus has gotten much better. The teachers are nice and challenge you. I learned a lot and when I needed help with anything, they were always there for you. If you feel that your child could do much better, they have advanced classes for those that can learn faster than others. Over all the school isn't all that bad... It's easy to learn your way around and easy to get help if needed. This school is quick to judge but the two years I attended, my perspective changed.
