Gettysburg Area Middle School Ratings & Reviews

This school is not great. While the school does lots to promote "be an up stander", they don't really do anything to enforce it. There is lots of bullying that teachers are oblivious to. Most of the teacher are great, but some are difficult with kids and leave much to be desired from an academic standpoint. The gifted students do not receive proper enrichment and unsociable ones are left out. The school is also not under good management, in my opinion. The new vice principal in particular has caused lots of complaints from students and parents. Children only ever really get to see people in their teams (groupings of students who have the same core teachers), so friendships outside of the team dissipate as time passes. This school is not a good choice.

Well for one i go to this school and it is great......... The teachers are willing to help and are the best teachers ive ever know. My former teachers from that school come and vist us in our 7th grade classes and offer to help with anything. Sports are great. And we have an amazing learning environment. Special needs children have their own personal teacher with them at all times, specials, hallway, or classes. And starting at the 2014 school year we will have a brand new school it will be even better. And the teachers take the time to get to know you and they are sooooo much fun. The lunch ladies even joke around with all the kids. And the principles even know all 667 of us. This school is great!!!!!!!!!

Gettysburg Area Middle School aspires to be known as a great learning institution. However, the staff does not seem to support this. Rampant bullying of students, teachers ignoring gifted students who are not sociable, and an overally sense of apathy from the principal's office leave much to be desired from GAMS. The school places a lot of emphasis on the children that they do not want to be 'left behind', and does nothing to promote those who can 'excel beyond'. Meanwhile, average students are left to continue being average, because that does not require any extra effort from the teachers. There are a few teachers in the school that try to create a better learning environment for all children, but their efforts are blunted by the indifference of the majority of their fellow faculty. The wealth of extracurricular activities save this school from a 1-star rating, in my opinion.

I think this school is way to easy in all grades, and is not a good learning expirience. At lunch you have assigned seats, which is terrible. You don't even get to sit with kids from another team. One good thing though is sports, we have mostly good coaches, and that it a good expirience. I just think we should learn more things, all we do is review review review.

Gettysburg Area Middle School, GAMS, has well rounded coverage with Quality academic programs, lots of extracurricular activities and a good level of parent involvement. The music and sports programs are very good, but the art program needs help. Artists with even a shred of talent will feel pretty lonely or even squelched at good 'ole GAMS. But as middle schools go, GAMS is hard to beat in the area of kids not hating school (dare I say even liking their school). My children were glad to have a break from Maryland's pressure cooker school systems. GAMS is practically a healthful retreat compared to anything in Frederick or Montgomery counties, MD--no bullying, backstabbing, nor the cutthroat competition of the ivy league wannabe. So if you want regular middle school for your kids, and not pre-pre-Harvard, then GAMS is great!
