My school Arlington middle school one of the best.The school could put more drink in the school like coke or other thing. If the parent let their child drink coke and other thing.I think other people should know that this is the best school for the child to best friends ever.Even get help with their work.

This is my daughter's third year at Arlington Middle. We are very happy with her progress in this school. The teachers and office personnel are wonderful. We are very happy with the school.

My son has gone to AMS since 6th grade - he's in 8th grade now. I find the teachers wonderful! The office personnel have been nothing but completely professional and pleasant to me and my son - but of course, we treat them the same way. My son has learned manners throughout the years, so people treat him reciprocally. Lunches are school lunches. Some great, some not so great. If a child wants to learn, a child will learn wonderful things at this school. If a child doesn't want to learn, and wants to goof off, the teachers can be strict, and there IS discipline! AMS is a great school for people who want to learn, and want to at least TRY.

Its my last year at AMS, and i am very sad to leave it. The band program is amazing. We have the best band director. I love the principals and they are willing to do almost anything to help us out. All of the teachers that i have had are amazing, so i am very sad to leave AMs. As always, go Bobcats!!

The front office staff is rude and unfriendly. My son complains that the lunches are awful and has had sour milk on several occasions.

Disappointed to find out through my child that the office staff is lacking in the interpersonal department and some of the teachers need to take an anger management class.

I have 2 children at Arlington Middle School. As a former teacher, I can say that this school is one of the best I have ever seen! The faculty are fantastic, the principal is dynamic, firm, and compassionate. My son and daughter have flourished. I have convenient access to the teachers' websites and electronic gradebook. I can get consultations with them as needed. It couldn't be easier! Don't waste your college money on private school - this public school is super!

My family has been very happy with the standards this school has set. It is refreshing to see a public school compete with some of the private schools in terms of discipline, education and athletic endeavors.

Arlington Middle offers a quality academic curriculum for the students , I have been pleased with the academic performance of theis school. It doe offer a challenge academically , but with strong involvement has proved to very good for my daughter. The prinicipal does provide a very disciplined environment and is very concerned with controllingthe difficult children. This has advantages, as it is very clear that schools need a great deal of structure , with all of the things showing up in our schools today. While I do not always agree with how things are handled in regard to discipline - I do understand the importance of the structure and control that he administrative team has implemented. My daughter was in 6th grade last year, and I was very impressed with her team of teachers. For the most part their communication with me when I had concerns was outstanding.

My child has been at Arlington Middle for 7th and 8th grade. She has a learning difference. It has not been a good experience. This school is more worried about the kids that excel then the kids that struggle. I am also upset that the principal punishes everyone for a few misbehaved students.

My children have been at Arlington Middle for 2 years, and I have been extremely satisfied with the school, its faculty and administration! I have found the school to be very cooperative in meeting my children's needs, academically, socially, and mentally. I strongly disagree with 'Concerned Parent' in their assessment of this school's approach to teaching our children. They cannot expect ANY school to overlook inappropriate behavior, or tailor each and every child's curriculum to meet their particular level of understanding. Perhaps this person should take some of the responsibility and seek tutoring or extra help for their child. AMS holds a high standard of behavior and education that any caring parent should want for their child. I am proud that my children are students at AMS and look forward to sending my third child there in a few short years!

I also agree with the October, 2005 parent. The school wants all students to excel but some students have a difficult time and need to be approached in learning in a different manner. They should not be forced to all the things that the top students have to do but use alternative ways to get to the point in ways slower students can understand. Not all students can learn to love to read through accelerated reader but could do better through other means.

I agree with the other parent's post that the school is overly concerned with controlling the students versus educating them. However, I have had a pleasant experience with the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Banks, who always listened to my concerns regarding what was happening with my child in the classroom and how she did not automatically defend the teacher's actions, but looked into the situations diplomatically. She also followed up with keeping an eye on my daughter throughout the year and my daughter gained success from this type of partnership with Mrs. Banks.

This school lacks in meeting the needs of all students. the curriculum is exactly the same wether your child is an A student or a D student. A large amount of the teachers get away with teaching the bare minimums. The school is so concerned with controling the disruptive students that they have lost sight of of the fact that some children just want to learn and be taught not controled.
