Wonderful school- have seen a lot of growth in all my children. They also had terrific caring teachers at the Smallwood Drive Elementary level. Kindergarten through fifth grade was extremely positive with great team support from teachers and administrators!
Bullying at Amherst has been mishandled for too long. Amherst Schools need the most effective bullying prevention programs.
If your child is bright, forget about any accelerated learning. The gifted and talented teacher was laid off because the school budget can no longer afford it. My child is in 6th grade, so it's his first year at the middle school. His academic performance has plunged without this program. Also, there is too much bullying going on at this school. I will send my child elsewhere next year. Very disappointing !
My son, who is now a freshman in HS, has attended Amherst Middle school and we both loved it! The assistant principle showed great leadership qualities as well as so many staff members. The band teachers and sport coaches were so enthusiatic about developing the students abilities. What a wonderful experience. I mean - most schools has its ups and its downs but I am glad to say that Amherst Middle had more ups!
as a student at this school i think it is excelent the teachers aregreat and they have so many oppritunities open for you at this school!
