I have bel keen at Atlantic middle school for 1 year and I am now going into 7th grade. Atlantic May not be in it's best condition but just beacuse our school is not brand new like central we still have amazing teachers and staff. I personally think Atlantic should be re done but we should keep the AJHS that is on the wall where the gym is, beacuse it shows our AMS pride and how long this school has running

It's a great school! Most parents don't really understand and say that it's a bad school because their kids get bad grades or their kids aren't involved with the activities. i went there for 2 years and both years i made high honor roll for every single term. it was hard, the teachers are really kind and strict at the same time. if you need any help they stay after school to help you. most kids don't take education seriously making their parents think the school is bad.

I have had the prevligue to attend AMS for three years. The teachers we open to giving extra help before or after school. The after school activities were well run and a great place to be aftre school. My previous principal was always strict to keep us children in order but she cared about us and our saftey. They staff were always a pleasure to be around. I LOVE AMS!

I am currently a 7th and 8th grade teacher at Altantic Middle School. I have previously taught at both Broadmeadows and Point Webster. The attitufe of the teachers and administration at this school far exceeds any other I have been exposed to. Additionally, the motto of respect includes all adults and children in the buildfing- respect for others, and respect for self. The Administration, guidance and teachers are without a doubt fully involved in their students success, and if any parent feels otherwise then it is their responsibility to call or email their child's teacher to straighten things out. Personally, I beleive that my students' success if my success, and I welcome all parent calls or letters. Teachers have over 100 children they are responsible for, most parents may have a few, making it more reasonable for parents to call teachers with concerns than the other way around.

I have the misfortune of a child who currently attends Atlantic. The teachers are at best disinterested. The assistant principal Dr. Wolf is scattered, unavailable for parent conferences, and has the affect of one who is frightened of the individual pupils. Overall, this is not a place for learning or prepartion of young minds for the future, but a wharehouse for future felons.

So far this year the school has gone above and beyond the 6th grade academic expectations I have had for my son. I don't see many oportunities for parent involvement just a pto meeting once in a while. And lastly, the extracurricular activities are not posted very clearly as to which activities will be available and when the sign up is.
