I am a very proud parent of two daughters that attend AWMS and I love it. AWMS is a great school and I would recommend it to every parent. The principal Mr. Heaston is very hands on and is there for the parents and students I guess you can say he is like a father away from home. P.S. Shouts out to the 7th and 8th grade teachers for doing a great job!! Let's not forget the 6th grade teachers for next year.

I have been with AWMS since it opened and I'm glad I've stayed. It has been a pleasant experience since Mr. Heaston has been the principal. I've worked very closely with the school as an active parent and my children have excelled greatly. My other daughter has moved on to Woodale High and because of the knowledge she obtain at AWMS, she has a 4.0 GPA and really enjoys learning. Two thumbs up to the aggressiveness and the willingness of the faculity and staff for all kids at AWMS to learn effectively!

My daughter has attended AWMS for the past two years and although I have ran into a few bumps, I can say that I am overall pleased with this school. The principal, Mr. Heaston is outstanding. He is always on hand to address any concerns from parents and he is very hands on with the students. You can see from his actions that he really love the students and enjoy his job to the fullest. The front office staff, guidance office staff, as well as the assist principals are all good and work really well with the students.

This is my daughter last year at AWM and I honestly love this school she has attended for all grades 6th-8th. The principle is great and the teacher are wonderful in regards to all situation. As a previous parent has stated she will forever remember her middle school years by her being a cheerleader and also a choir member. The extra curricular classes and sport teams they have is great. I have truly enjoyed my daughter attendance at this school.

My daughter graduated from awm last year. She was there for three years.Their academics this year is a little better. Either though she was in the honor class also played sports. But I am glad to see the girls are having a better year this year.Some of teacher are so considerate with the students that a good thing. I think the princple is doing a great job. I think my child will always remember her middle school and her friends that are still there. But awm do need more hall monitors. Awm keep doing a great job. I want to tell all the teacher thank you preparing my daugther for high school and bigger things in life.
