Arbutus Middle School Reviews
LOVE AMS!!! The school seemed so big back in 2008 when my daughter entered as a 6th grader coming from Halethorpe Elementary. BUT, she learned it wasn't THAT big. The teachers that we have come in contact with over the past 3 yrs have been wonderful. Tough, but wonderful. They prepare you for high school. I also like the fact that AMS offers many xtra -curricular activities. As my daughter prepares to graduate, with perfect attendance and straight A's all 3 yrs, she looks back on her years with a smile.
Arbutus gets a bad rap based on the small amount of delinquents that attend the school. No matter where your child goes to school there will always be some type of delinquents in the school. My son has attended Arbutus since 6th grade and has maintained his honor roll status despite the disruptions made by others in his class. I just tell him to stay out of the fray and he'll be fine - stick with others that want to do well in school and you'll do well :)
