School Reviews

  • Recommended November 22, 2010 - I am a student of ALC middle and do not agree with any foul reviews of our school. I admire the students, teachers, and staff of this school. We have plenty of music, art, and sports extracurricular activities such as strings, band, football and basketball teams, Young Men and Young Ladies club, volleyball, Junior Beta club,and probably more. Also, we have a display case filled with academic and athletic awards. We also have many parents that attend all school events. SO, if you ask me ALCMS is a great school. But, that's just me. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended April 15, 2008 - I think that A.L. Corbett Middle School is overall a good place to learn. Every school has things they can work on and Corbett is taking action and is striving to be the best school it can to provide a more positive and easier to deal with learning environment. There are rarely disipline problems so safety is guranteed at this school. The teachers are warm and friendly and understand the students needs and try to do anything they can to help them acheive their goals. I think A.L. Corbett Middle School is a great public school that any child would find a great place to learn. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended January 11, 2007 - I think that A.L. Corbett Middle School is a wonderful learning environment. The faculty and staff input positive encouragement to the students which helps boost their confidence and inproves their PACT scores. Although these students have not appeared to be the brightest of all they have the potential to be the leaders of tomorrow. - Posted by Student/Alumni
