    "I have always thought very highly of this school. I have always recommended it to anyone who will lend an ear, and I still will, except for one teacher/subject. Stay away from Drama class unless you are a parent or have a parent who will constantly kiss up to the teacher. My child has been in this program for three years, and this year was bullied by the teacher and by the teacher's crew of preferred students to the point where was pretty much forced to drop out of the yearly show. Speaking of the show, one would think that this teacher would have considered giving the graduating class a fond memory of the program after they have invested countless hours within the three years they participated in it, but that seems to not be a concern or even a thought for this teacher. Most graduating students were left out of the show, where most were given very little participation on or off stage. However, if you happened to be one of her preferred students, then you would somehow (regardless of talent) get a part in it. Very disappointed with the lack of professionalism and ethical behavior of this teacher."

    "I'm currently a student in the 8th grade at Ammons, and I can honestly tell you that it is a great school. Most of the teachers there really care about you, and how to prepare you best for high school. While there are some teachers that seem to give you too much work, they have your best interests in mind, and while it might seem tedious at the time, I promise you that it is worth it. It not only prepares you for the rigorous magnet programs in high school, but also helps you mature as a person. Before coming to this school, I often procrastinated and neglected my responsibilities, but after a year here, I soon realized that I had to be more mature with how I handled y responsibilities. Not to mention, Ms.Perlman is a great counselor, and she's bound to help your kids with any problems they might experience here. The workload here can sometimes be intense, especially if you're taking Biology/Geometry but it's all to prepare you for the dreaded EOCs. The teachers here really do know what they're doing, and while I thought my workload for Algebra & Civics was too much at the time, I realized after taking the EOC that they didn't give us anything we didn't need. Go eagles! :)"

    "Ammons was recommended to us by several people and our daughter is currently in 8th grade. We have not been disapponted in the least. The work load is very reasonable. Students at Ammons know what the expectations are. They work hard but they have sports And many activities to recognize And praise their efforts. Ms. Costa is the best principal we have ever come across. The teachers are fantastic and work great together. The only negative side we find is the actual infrastructure of the school. They deserve an actual building instead of a bunch of portables."

    "My daughter who is now a Sophmore graduated from Ammons and I can say that it was a wonderful school. Teachers are really committed and dedicate their time to make sure the kids are on point and ready for whichever high school they decide to attend. I would say having my daughter attend this school was a great decision and would recommend this school to anyone who is seeking for a higher level of education for their son or daughter."
