The best of the best of the best... No other school compares in student success, test scores, teacher training and commitment,and parental involvement.

Reviewed on

It's THE best middle school in the District and probably the whole Miami-Dade County. There is dedication from the staff, from the custodians all the way up to the administrators. Focus is success and the expectations are high because students are challenged to perform at their best. I would not have my child attend any other middle school in the country! Ammons is truly THE best!

Some of the teachers didn"t meet the needs of my struggling son.  I think it's because they felt every student should be above average in everything.  My son did well but his FCAT scores did go down, and there was no remediation done prior. His grades did not reflect his 2011 scores at all.
