i think amory high school does a great job. most of the teachers are very qualified and despite the comments of another parent, most of the teachers do well in helping to mold our children. the academics at the school are above par for most schools in the area and the sports programs are always very competitive, with football, baseball, soccer, basketball, softball, tennis, swim team, band, and golf always vying for region or state championships.

I have two in this school and I don't believe they get challenged enough. Many of the teachers try to act like they are teenagers again and befriend the students rather than lead them in a mature fashion. It has been a disappointment.

I think this school is very good. It offers a variety of AP programs. It offers wonderful teachers.

The MWAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Mississippi. The goal is for all students to score at or above 2 on the test.
