Last year I attended ARD, and I feel the students were not given as much opporotunity as other middle schools in surrounding areas have revceived. Our music program was a small optional chorus which met in the midst of classes which members were excused from, and responsible for making up missed work. Our foreign language program was manditory, as opposed to being chosen over another english course. Our PE was part of a 22 day long rotation along with art, computer, french, and study, so our students would only get 22 days of exercise. Other problems, such as the mobile classrooms have been said in previous reviews, but nonetheless I still feel I should re-state their existence. The staff, to me, are just fine, but the curriculm in my opinion is flawed.

ARD is an incredible school. We many not be the richest or have the fanciest hall ways but we have something that most school's these days do not. We have the spirt and guidance to help us want to succeed. We have the ability to reach for our dreams without getting discouraged on the way. Most importantly we have a community of people who each and every day work together to make every day worth while. Any person would be lucky to go to ARD.

Im a seventh grader that goes to Armand R. Dupont Middle School. I realize our school isnt the greatest. But it is good enough to give us the education we deserve. Not all the teachers are the nicest but I think a lot of us enjoy waking up every day to go to school and hang out with our friends and come to school to learn something new. Our school is not as bad as everyone thinks. We dont need fancy bathrooms or halls to get an education. We have all we need to get an education. And if we dont then we work as hard as we can to get it. Armand R. Dupont is a great School.

Shame on me for not doing my 'homework' about the schools in Allenstown. I was quite shocked to learn that there is NO music instruction, some classes have NEVER been allowed to borrow books from the school library, and the 5th grade students do not eat until 1 pm. Also, the mobile classroom utilized by two of the 5th grade classes has been without heat on several occasions. There are no bathroom facilities for the students in the mobile classes (other than in the main building) , in spite of the fact that materials and labor were donated for restroom hookups.

My 11 year old son has a learning disability which entitled him to an IEP. These teachers have no understanding or skills to help these kids. We have been the voice for my son for the past two years and are determined to not let these teachers fail him. My best advice to parents for this school is to make sure you know your childs rights for No Child Left Behind because you are going to need it!
