My child recently started 6th grade and I am struck by the level of dedication and the passion of the teachers - passionate about their subjects and the students.. I am also impressed by the administration's commitment to making middle school a positive time - so much emphasis is placed on how students treat each other and the 'soft' side of being part of a school. Also, I love the range of extra curruculars available - from theater to robotics to UN club. So far it has been great.
We transferred our child from private school to this public school because of the well-known advanced curriculum and huge selection of co-curricular activities. We continue to be impressed by the dedication of the guidance staff, the teachers and all administrative support. When a Typical middle school drama occurred, the guidance counselor immediately stepped in and remedied the situation to the satisfaction of all. It is a large school with a small school feel; everyone knows my child, not unlike in private school.
I must say that I am very impressed by the level of dedication of the teachers in ALMS. Not only do they have excellent academic standards, their level of guidance and concern for the students is really impressive. Special shout out to Mr. Wallace and Mr. Konigsberg for their dedication and high level of standard. I hope there will be more teachers like you. I'm so glad my kids go to ALMS.
My daughter, who is currently a junior at the high school, absolutely loved her teachers and the school The course offerings are outstanding and the kids graduate fully prepared for the workload and advanced classes offered in the high school. My son is currently in 7th grade and is having a wonderful experience as well. My only criticism is that the school's website could be more informative regarding extracurriculars, forms, deadlines etc.
It's a good school with many excellent teachers. However, they overload With too much homework- a poor teaching tool. Also the PTA's activities do not reflect student racial Diversity.
I graduated from ALMS last year and I miss it so much! 6-8 grades were the best years of my life. As I was walking through the school for the last time, I was very sad to leave. I know I will have many great memories from ALMS and lifelong friends. Some people have addressed concern over bullying. I too, was bullied. However, I had some amazing friends, and we would always stick up for each other. If you have great friends too, it won't bother you. The tech ed program is great. I had Mr. May in 8th grade, and he was the best ever! I liked most of my teachers. The ones I didn't like were still highly qualified, just tough. Exception: Spanish teachers. Do not take Spanish at ALMS, the teachers are the worst, ever. Take latin or french or italian instead.
this is the best middle school! the teachers are nice! we have fun sport teams! make friends fast!
this school which my son and daughter attend is something that makes them want to get up in the morning.
This school is completely amazing! all the teachers are great and very efficiant, i have never heard any complaints from my student about this fabulous school!

Love the interaction with the teachers and fellow staff. They are very informative and looks out for each kids best interest.
Albert Leonard is a nice school. They take care of you and have alot of security to make sure people are safe and they have a nice and caring staff.
This is a very important school to me. I used to fail, now I'm getting A's
This school definitely has a bullying problem.overall above average academics and some teachers have great communication with parents
My daughter is in 8th grade there and loves this school. She has had some problems with bulling, but the school has been working on that problem. I have visited the school and liked it. The parent involvement is okay, but it could be up a little more. I just went to the spring concert and saw the concert band, and many others, do wonderful in the concert. My daughter has loved being in the band and has a lot of fun. She was also in the Learning Academy and it helped her a lot in math and english. She got her homework done while waiting for the bus. The buses could be better. My daughter hates having to stand on the bus because it is loud and crowed and She usually almost misses her stop. They either need more buses or less kids that take the bus.
The school is a large school and seems to have a lot to offer. There however is some major issues going on in regards to constant bullying in the school among students. It appears that the staff plays death ear until the situation blows up. I think the school should make an effort in teaching sensitivity classes to the students and staff. Peer pressure and bullying is real and can lead to individuals seriously being hurt. I do not believe the school has taken this subject serious thereby doing nothing to prevent incidents from esculating.Parents must do their part at home but lets face it when our children leave home to go to school they are spending a great deal of time without you. They are in the care of the school's staff and at the mercy of sometimes unpleasant situations exhibited by fellow classmates out of control.
