I voted for the tax increase for DD2 schools for improvements that would be made to schools needing updated facilitys. Alston is long overdue for improvements to its facilities. One that should be a serious concern being the unlocked doors for anyone to enter during school hours having access to the hallways. To my knowledge the doors at the back of the school are the concern. After discussing my concertn with the principal, he explained there was nothing he could do to lock doors.

We are Military and move a lot. My son has only attended one year here and that is the eight grade. I can't say one bad thing for this school. My son left a highly rated school and did not do so good, but he came here and the atmosphere excelled his grades and his confidence.I am leaving Summerville with great thanks to all the teachers and staff at Alston. This is a Great School!

Principal Sam Clark has put Alston first every day of his career, he loves the teachers and the children. My daughter loves Alston, and has many friends there. A school is only as good as the people in it and who support it, and here in Summerville we have a lot of supportive parents and teachers who want the best for their students.

This school is as good as Rollings but you dont try out. You can do many things here. The teachers work really hard and are nice. We have band, chorus, dance, guitar, writing, keyboard, art, spanish, piano, orchestra-strings, academic classes. if you have the chance, send your child here, you will be happy and relax

I go to Alston. It is pretty good. I think it would be really cool if we had someway to tell what we think is wrong with the school so that it can improve even more. Like maybe a suggestion box or something.

My daughter is attending Alston this year after attending another DD2 middle school last year. What a difference! She loves it! The principal is AMAZING and so is the arts program! We are moving this summer and are having a hard time finding schools that can meet the standards of Alston. If your child has the chance to attend Alston, consider yourself blessed!
