    Alba middle school is a joke. My 7th grade child was constantly bullied. Started verbally then pushing continued with threats of being beat up then pine cones to the face and rocks to the back of the head all because he was an easy target a very smart person and in the band. The money they get from the state does not go to bullying like its supposed to. Different trips and calls to the school were made with the principle saying "we'll get to the bottom of it." Yeah right. My son is being pulled out and put back in mobile christian school where he started in kindergarten.

    Alba Middle is one of the best middle school that I've ever seen. There are more communcation between teachers staff and student. The teachers are more patience on the student then I've erver seen. It's a very good environment for the students to learn in. There are so many extra activity's for the students.

    I feel that Alba Middle School is one of the best schools in the regioin. The Principal and staff really care about the students. The building is old but it is obvious that the staff has a lot of pride. The academic program is second to none. Their academic teams are the best in the county. Our family is very pleased with Alba.
