When I went to this school the environment was completely unsanitary. The number of quality or even seemingly qualified teachers can be counted on two hands. I was completely unprepared for highschool despite having great grades in their high level classes. I dont have happy memories of Anthony middle school.

terrible school not safe feels like your about to be shot i about to run away its so scary

I hate this school... The Teachers pile homework onto me making it almost impossible to anythings at home. I came from Kenwood a performing arts school. The only good things there are Japanese and G.S.A (Gay Straight Alliance). This website states that there are more Caucasian students then African-american, I beg to differ. THIS SCHOOL IS A PILE OF GARBAGE DO NOT COME HERE!!!!

Anthony Middle School receives an F. In September my son requested a schedule change. Teachers and Administrators have now switched up his schedule four times. No disciplinary actions. No calls from the school to notify us until the third schedule change. He became so frustrated with the situation he walked out of school and they called us. Only then did we learn they couldn't find him a schedule. We settled on a schedule with the administrators. Then two weeks later we received a call to tell us they couldn't accommodate what we agreed on. Two and half months to figure out a schedule change? After many years of supporting Minneapolis Public Schools I am now a proponent for school vouchers and performance based pay for Teachers & Administrators.

We love this school! Our 6th grader has amazing teachers esp. in reading, spanish and humanities. Even his 1st hour advisor makes him feel at home. Health, gym, band - it's hard to leave any of these great teachers out! The curriculum is very engaging. The kids work hard for their quality education. The principal, counselor and social workers truly care and the students know it! Best of all, the school is very diverse. We came from an all-white school with helicopter parents. We are so happy about the change. Kids of all cultures can feel comfortable and valued. This school is a gem.

The kids take pride in their school grounds and in their academic achievement.

We are from Europe with a very gifted child. Coming to the US we were warned about the problems with schools. We placed our child in two schools before Anthony- private and public in Edina. This school is simply great! The teachers are very experienced and rigorous. Having straight A's takes work. It is similar to our European experience. There are problems like everywhere in publicly funded school, but it prepares kids for though and demanding curriculum in HS. In comparison with suburban school drugs are not an issue. (At least you can not smell them in the restrooms...)

This school has almost no extra curricular activites, unless you count knitting. Academics are not rigorous. They have no money for things such as textbooks, even for a foreign language class. It is impossible to schedule meetings with teachers. Conferences are in the lunch room and you stand in line for hours and only receive 5 minutes of a teacher's time. My experience with this school is thankfully, almost over. I can only hope that my son is not too far behind for high school level work.

it is a great school and everyone is nice to me there. I have a lot of friends there!

Anthony is a school that blends diversity and opportunity for academica rigor. My daughter thrived there and my son is enjoying his 2nd year. Teachers range from simply competent to inspirational.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 11, 2008

Anthony is a tough school both academically and socially. The 6th grade team of teachers bury the kids in work and some how if your child makes it, the 7th and 8th grade are much more caring - go figure. A lot of bullying problems.
