I personally know three families who have had to take their child out of The Atlanta Charter Middle School because they were being bullied, touched inappropriately or generally left to feel uncomfortable in an environment that is often controlled by a fairly rough element of students. The principal ...  Read more

If you like your child listening to X-rated rap lyrics played by the HEALTH teacher, a Chairman Mao poster hanging in the a humanities teacher's classroom and a general, wide open, hard left indoctrination of the students by at least 90% of the teachers then you will love the Atlanta Charter Middle School.

Ive been going to this school for a year and the school isnt all that. The students have no self control and they have attitudes with the teachers. The teachers show no respect to the students and if someone has a problem the teachers look at them like they're stupid. They need to work on they're behavior ...  Read more

My son is in the 6th grade. We are continually impressed with his teachers, his PEC support, the principal. We really appreciate the small class size, and the individual attention my son gets.

This school has so much potential; however, based on what my child tells me and my own in-class observations, it is run ineffectively. Students show absolutely no self-control and some are violent, other parents fault the teachers for their children's unwillingness to learn, students who do try are ...  Read more

I have been going to this school two years now and, at first, I loved it. The teachers were great, the homework was steady and eable to keep up with, and there weren's many behavior problems. My second year, however, made me hate it. Most of the teachers have good intentions, but the work is too much ...  Read more

I'm going to be honest. I hate going to school. They say that they're constructivist and do hands on learning but I come home with a stack of worksheets as thick as a book! That's not the only problem. There is a lot of teasing and behavior issues that the teacher and principal really don't do much about.I ...  Read more
