I really loves this school until they turned it into a military academy. I wish I could go back. I loved being an 8th grader. Now I am on my way to being a freshman at Roosevelt high school. And I really just miss Ames so much even though I live really close to it, I am still going to miss being in it, and for me, it was the best middle school that someone could ever go to. All the friends I made and all the cool stuff we all did together. I never really wanted to leave Ames. But I had to, in order to get a better education in life. I still will remember Ames, and all the fun I had in it. The worst day that I had from Ames was the last day of 8th grade. I knew I was going to miss all my friends because they all are going to different high schools. But I will try to remember Ames for the rest of my life. Go lions!

I absolutely loved my experience as an 8th grader. I am now a sophomore, but this school has changed A LOT. I wish it was still as great as before. I wish I could go back, it was so much fun!

I do have to give credit to Ames. It prepared me with the tools necessary to succeed in high school. The only aspect of the school that I can ridicule would have to be the math department. In my opinion, it was geometry based. Because of that, I had a slight step back in freshmen algebra. But now, I am taking AP Calculus. There are many rumors that Ames's students turn out bad or they aren't up to par with other CPS counterparts. That is not true. I am a living example. Keep doing what you're doing Ames middle school! Team 5!

Ames is the best school ever!!!!! i am a graduated student from ames i was there both 7th and 8th grade and they were the best two years of my life the teachers are awsome they are persons who realy use to care about their students.To bad some of the best teachers are gone,like, Mr. bullie he was the best math teacher and Mr. Bernthal he was just great.By the way the blue house class of 2009 was the best ever ames was lucky to have the blue house students in their school. Overall ames rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

I believe this is a pretty good school, they have good security and have great teachers. Mr, Paycheck is a good understanding person. He helps out the kids and listen when they have a problem. A big sister!

I agree with theparent before my posting.My also suffered from deppression when he went to school there and no one cared. I am glad a new principal has taken over and I am glad my son is out of that school.

Well my child goes to this school. And she has never had a problem. The students help her with her work and if she needs extra help on the homework that they assign she goes up earlier in the mornings and get's help on what she needs. Over all this is a great school. Better than most that she's been in.
