So I gave a donation to the school right? The lady took it and placed it on the counter and said "Someone would get it. Who's next in line". Now I wasn't asking to be praised but this school needs all the money it can get and should be thankful. I asked about a secure way to make donations and she couldn't help me. I tried calling the 8th grade principal, Ms. Panky...... 4 times... But no return call. I have decided not to give. If my son needs supplies for his classes I will make sure of that. But I'm really turned off.

This school is the worst teacher leave every month and that is because they don't have patients and dont treat the students right

This school isn't as bad as people say it is. The teachers at this school actually care about the students grades and their well-being. The teachers dont waste their time trying to get the students to shut up like they do in Mint Hill. There also aren't any fights and i dont see any bullying going on. The students here are very friendly and its a very diverse school.

Pathetic is more like it. The staff says it isn't their job to keep kids form fighting, they just suspend/expel. This is by far the worst example of a school I have ever seen anywhere outside of a film. The staff doesn't care about the kids, they intimidate them, lie to them and bully them as much as the other kids do. This is more like a juvenile reform institution than a school. Parents, do your children a favor, run away screaming if anyone ever tells you that you have to send your baby to this cesspool.

We came to this school in October 2012 every since then my child has been bullied on several occasion. They do not handle bullying issue well. They just sweep it under the rug.They let students threaten other students and do nothing about it and like I said, sweep it under the rug.I don't think that they know that this could cause problems on students as well as for the parents. I feel that the school needs mooooooore training on how to work with students that are bullied. If I had to request this school but, I'm not but as for my children he said give it an F. He said,that the teachers are OK . Parent involvement that's a joke.This school don't even have a active PTA.I have never seen anything like this in my life. I just want someone to really get this school on the right track.

My daughter was an A student until she started attending Albermarle. The teachers seem unconcerned and don't care. I have made attempts to talke to my childs teachers and they seemed unconcerned. My daughter has several classes where she is not allowed to bring home her books. This school needs more dedicated teachers.

This school is very unorganized. In order for a school to run properly the administration has to be on point. The administration waits until the last minute to send out notices on everything. For example, the picture day slips came out a day before the pictures were to be taken, leaving alot of parents having to run out and buy new outfits. I was one of them. They're more concerned about the dress code than being proactive. Some of the teachers are nice but there are some that are questionable.

On the flip side there are some wonderful teachers at ARMS. I am looking to move out of this area just so my child does not have to attend this school again. They are not organized, do not have any kind of field trips and they don't do anything for these kids. This is a major let down from something I had such high hopes for.

My daughter attended Albemarle Road two years ago and was there from 6-8 grades. The major plus about this school is the IB program. Parent involvement was terrible. The students did not abide by the dress code nor was it enforced. Students were disrespectful to the teachers also.

As a parent I will give Albemarle Road a D+.

I must say the negative things said about ARMS had me a little concerned. But, this is my daughter's 2nd year there and she loves it. She has maintained honor roll while there and has what seems to be very caring teachers - there was '1' teacher that was sort of rough on the students, but she is no longer there so my mind is at ease. I am thankful my daughter has had a pleasant experience at ARMS, Ms. Baughknight and Ms. Jackson, just to name a few are the bomb! I love them and wish they could go on to high school with my daughter. Only thing I would adjust is Open House especially and PTA should be a little later in the evening to accommodate working parents...... Overall, I give ARMS an A+!

My son has attended Albemarle Middle for 3 years. I have seen him mature and enjoy school in such a positive way. He loves his school and has much school spirit. The teachers are very concerned and have always communicated any issues concerning my child. You will always have discipline problems no matter what school, but for me to see one child, mature and obtain such a self esteem about himself and his school says to me that Albemarle Road Middle Rocks!

Albemarle Road Middle School is lacking in administration and good teachers. I was a previous teacher at Albemarle Road Middle and left due to those reasons. Students are not disciplined in an effective manner and behavior problems are clearly visible within the school. Instruction comes second to discipling students at Albemarle Road Middle.
