Amherst Middle School Ratings & Reviews

I am a parent of 2 children that have attended. Quite frankly, the leadership, starting with the principal, needs an overhaul. The principal is not professional and appears to be coasting at this point in his career. This school has the "Nationally Recognized Excellence" sign over the entrance but that was something from 10+ years ago. In discussions with friends of neighboring towns, our school system doesn't seem to be keeping up with the academic demands of today. Homework, particularly in some of the grades is a joke. Kids are lacking fundamental skills in grammar and math. It's easy for kids to get left behind unless parents stand up and say something. Bullying is still there no matter how many signs they place on the walls. With that all said, there are teachers there that are wonderful, kind and will spend extra time with the kids. I've seen growth in my children, but then they might get a teacher or 2 that sets them back. The 6th grade was especially bad for both children. As parents we made sure to stay on top of the work and look for other opportunities to make up the education gap. The frustrating part, is there is soooo much more potential there. New leadership would go a long way!

This school should not be a 9. The teachers don't care about the students and their academic programs are behind. Don't let the flashy "Nationally recognized school of excellence" fool you! their math program is behind and their reteaching things from their 5th graders to their 8th graders! It's the math that gets me going: they're teaching 6th grade items to the 8th graders! Even the advance class is pitiful! I recently moved to the school from another state where i took an advanced course more advanced than their "advance" class, yet they place me in the common core (don't trust common core btw its the stupid's stupid class) to learn what i learned two years ago. After I moved up the teacher didn't count my test "Because I'm new to the class and don't know what I'm doing", I've gotten only A's on my testes in her class. DON'T GO!! A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!!

Most of the teachers at this school absolutely disgust me. All they are focused on is their pay checks and doing the minimum that is required of them. The majority will only stay until 2:30 (half hour after schools ends), the minimum required by their contract, and will leave the students who need help after school even if they have not gotten all their questions answered. It is amazing how little they care for the students. I do not understand how this school could possibly gotten a 9 out of 10 ranking for schools. I believe it is more realistically (from my own experiences and from talking with others of their experiences more like a 5 out of 10. This is not as bad as some public schools but parents and new-comers to the area, do not be disillusioned by this faulty rating. You are much better going the private route!

Amherst Middle School is a school on the rise. Over the last three years, the school system has installed a new superintendent and has a new board, consisting of parents with children. The changes range from a new, rigorous math curriculum that is outstanding. I also have a young child in the elementary school who is already learning algebraic concepts. Amazing! There is also a compressed math curriculum for gifted students. From having attended board meetings, the school is working on adding a STEM curriculum and a world language program as early as kindergarten. Some other areas where we've seen improvements are in sprucing up the building, getting rid of tired teachers and making a better transition between the elementary schools and the high school. If you're looking to buy a home in southern New Hampshire, this is a school system you'll be very happy with.

A huge disappointment. teachers struggle to manage classroom behavior. Smarter children are not able to advance in the curriculum. Behavior on the buses is out of control. Lack of leadership.
