I like this school the teachers don''t give too much homework but enough to retain the knowledge of your study and they give you much more freedom than in elementary school.

Amms is a good school because there are teachers there that care and are trying to teach. The administration needs an attitutde adjustment. The principal needs to attend anger management classes for herself. She is is so bitter about something that she takes it out on her staff. The teachers are a wonderful group of people that love the students and are working overtime to keep everything together to satisfy a mean as a snake principal. Please, for the sake of the students and the teachers, please remove Barbara Lee. She needs to be working as a prison guard, not a principal.

Do not I repeat not send your child to this school!!!!! I'm going there right now, hate it sooo much!!!!! The staff does not treat you with any respect the kids are rude. There have been fights lately with knifes and just other fights where kids have been knocked lost teeth or hair or have broken bones!!!! The lunch is terrible you can get probably one or two things without paying extra because they charge so much!!!!! Mrs. Barbara Lee and Mr. Brooks do NOT know how to run a school. In music art and technology you learn the same stuff if you have that class the next year and you do not learn something harder each year. And in career technology art music and computers you sit there the whole class and have talk time the teachers call it. In P.E. you SIT there the whole time on the bleachers ad you can move around and eat an talk and you don't ever dress put I'm not kiddig NO joke!!!! Four times in P.E. they've sold us candy soda and junk food!!!! Well do not send your child there I hate it so much I'm NOT kidding!!! P.S. Almost all of those kids chew gum walk around the halls with nothing in their hands no binder pencilpaper or anything and they have their cellphone in their pocket just ready to text away and they all make por poor grades andthey dos anything so it's really just all zeros!!!! It's a wonder the shool makes kind of good grades!!!!! Don't send your child here or go here unless you want your kids to hate you the resf of your life!!!! Most kids are leaving the school.... once again I am soooo NOT kidding!!!!!! DON'T !!!!!!
