    Amelia Middle School is a great place! As with any school there are always dissatisfied parents teachers and students. When it comes to respect and discipline if parents taught that at home it wouldn't be much of an issue in schools. Respect is a two way street - to get it you must give it! Having a better attitude would help! As for information schools send information home in plenty of time for parents to know what is going on. Perhaps the child is not bringing the information home and giving it to the parent in a timely manner. Yes teachers are spending instructional time teaching the VA State SOLs and there is not much time left for "fun" stuff but that is what the STATE says teachers are to do...go figure!!! I am sure that there will always be someone who is dissatisfied with some school but if you got more involved in your school by joining the PTA volunteering read the report card before you sign it show up for conferences and (here's one for you) talk honestly with your child do not be as accepting of everything they say. Teachers have over 100 students which means at least 200 parents to communicate with. Talk to the teacher.

    I am very dissappointed in our teachers lack of respect for the students...many of them have immature attitudes themselves...rolling eyes..smacking lips...it's no wnder why students don't respect them. They have no communication at all with parents. I never get papers home on time or here of events that are going on until the week of or it's too late. but thats what you get when you live in a town that refuses to keep up...times are changing and our schools need to as well.WAKE UP AMELIA!!!!!

    The SOL scores are the most important to the schools in this area. Very little attention is paid to actually educating the children or to discipline issues.

    The faculty works very hard to achieve the goals set by the State. The Central Office Staff and the Principal do not care if the chldren learnthe subject. All they care about is a passing score on the State Standardized Tests (SOL)
