    "No quality technical programs, no advanced math, science and tech classes. Class work at least one year behind other schools. Gifted program is regular grade level for other schools."

    "The quality of the academic program is good. In 6th grade the teachers really pushed the students if they felt as though they were capable of doing the work. The sixth grade outdoor education program (A.K.A. 6th grade camp)was enjoyable for my son, but the selection of camps was poor. But to save a buck and to allow more students to attend at one time, it was chosen. My child is currently in the 7th grade there and has a wonderful group of teachers which I communicate with via e-mail almost weekly on my son's progress. The extracurricular activites are plentiful. It almost seems like a big club rather than a school because of all of the opportunities for the students to do things with the school outside of school hours. Parent involvement is at an all time high, due to the easy access to the teachers vie e-mail."

    "Gettysburg Area Middle School (GAMS) is a great schhool, but would be evan better if six grade students were included more. They don't get to join sports teams of any school kind. They also don't get to enter the samecontest as older grades. They also don't get to use the showers after gym. Students feel nasty, smelly and uncomfortable. This is unfare. Also, students should get to sit with different grades at lunch. This helps students meat new peolple and learn about the school. Some students friends are a grade higher, and they don't get to see them. Students at least should get to sit in different places in their grade section. They need to meat more people. The school should also be decorated better. Don't get me rong though, I love GAMS, but it does have a few faults. What school doent. Keep doing a great job with GAMS."
