I went to this school for all of whole middle school. It is not racially diverse to say the least and a large majority of the students are racist towards white people. The teachers are tired and put no effort into their job. Bullying was a small issue at points.Would not recommend.
Im not impressed with this school. The teachers are wonderful but I think that they are not respected by the students. When I enrolled my students here, my husband and I clearly heard kids cursing as they roamed the halls, saying disrespectful things to adults and being rude. When my children started here it seemed like something goes on everyday. My kids were bullied for coming from an academy and it got to the point where I contacted the school board. I think this school needs to instill some moral values in its students because its apparent that majority of the students arent getting it at home. This will be the 1st and last year my children attend here. They are not use to hearing the things that a lot of these students say out of their mouths. Its pure choas and it makes it hard for the teachers to be effective. I have observed teachers frustration because there is only so much they can do or say. Girls pick fights with mydaughter constantly and to the point they send vulgar messages to her email and facebook account. My son was slammed to the floor just yesterday because he is "soft" to them and will not fight back. He is trying to get an education, not fight daily
I am impressed with this school. It is small and the teachers are very communicative with me. I regularly receive emails and calls about my son's work (both when he's doing great and when he needs extra support). They all seem to have an attitude of what can we do together to support his learning (except one teacher). The principal and vice principal for his grade are very helpful, realistic, understanding and great communicators. There's a great diversity of achievement levels but my son is not slipping through the cracks academically. He seems challenged even though he's gifted. The reason I've given it 4 stars and not 5: there are a lot of places on campus that allow the kids to be hidden from view/unmonitored. And, as I mentioned, there is one teacher (out of 7 that my son has had this year) I've encountered who should not be in the classroom. He is inconsistent, doesn't do what he says he will (frustrating my son to pieces), will not answer questions in class, makes negative comments about the kids behavior and knows less about his subject than my son does.
the only way to get rid of the trash is no tolerance one warning 2 time your out thats where my child is being educated and the school has class students that respect each other
I believe that Aycock is a school in progress. Parents /Teacher/ and Students have a great deal of Lion's pride. My child is enjoying her education journey at Aycock Middle School. The PTA is doing a marvelous job.... their are various activites and clubs for the students to join... The DrumLine and Dance Team Rock!!! Go Lion's!
aycock is a great school but the fights kids get in are ridiculous. some kids cuss and threaten people but over all the school is great. from a loyal stundent
With all schools they have their challenges. It will take money dedication from teachers and staff forthis school to continueto grow.
i think aycock is a wonderful school my child went there in her 6 th grade year. at first she didnt like it but now she wants to go back but I don't know the school she's at right now is very good and quiet but other then that aycock is wonderful and some parents might not think so but i do its not the school that's bad its the children there. the school is very good and good education
Aycock is a good school over all but the teachers disrespect the student more than the studends and thats not fair! The activities are wonderful but the teacher need 2 chiil
Aycock is absolutely the worst school I've ever been in. The discipline is awful. Fights happen regularly and no one can seem to do anything about it. I would not be surprised if there is a gang influence in this school. I will never allow my child to attend this school again - for fear of his life.
I thought this school had a lot of caring administrators, but as the year continued, it appeared that it was all about them making a appearance of caring and it was definitely not about the kids, however, some really great and caring teachers.
This school is horrid. The students are out of control and there is no administrative support.
It is obvious that the adminstrative team wants to build a school of excellence. Each day they are actively invovled in working with students to help them succeed. I am glad my son has been given a chance at Aycock.
I really dont like the way the teachers at aycock treat their student. The teachers are vey disrespctful.
I am impressed w/Mrs Foley. I think she is trying to instill discipline and order in the school. My son is in 6th grade and has wonderful teachers on his team. The guidance counselor has been helpful and the new PTA newsletter has been informative. Communication could still be better, but it's my understanding that middle school is much different than elementary school in that regard. The school counts on the children too much to relay info home. My son's first semester report card was very good and he enjoys going to school there in the Science & Technology Magnet Program.
