  • I have heard really bad things about this school, and to see people close to it (parents, etc.) say such bad things is disconcerting. I have to agree with what several others have said - - the faculty and staff can't take the place of parents. Notice I said "parents" plural.

  • This school is in the middle of the ghetto! What do you expect? Teachers are not there to raise your children. They must learn respect at home first. There is too much dispruptive behavior here for anyone to learn.

  • Armstrong High School is physically located in Richmond Va. However, the City of Richmond is surrounded by counties but not a part of any of them. It is an independent city, not located in any county.

  • I did not see my rating as being submitted. I feel this school has chosen inappropriate staff, faculty and teachers..when you call, some of them are rude, and disrespectful. They are not concerned with your needs. They are not putting forth enough effort to find out why these children do not go to class, or why they are failing..there is a program children can go in at Adult Career Center, however they are allowing children to fail instead???Sad to have so many afro-americans preferring there race fall down, and not offer true assistance.

  • this school has become a threat to lives, grown ups acting like teenagers wanting to fight students..alot of the staff needs to be replaced..this school is a menace to richmond virginia...they have no true concern for the children there...A shame to the community in my opinion...they would rather let children fail before they help them. They will pretend they have things under control when they do not...they will watch a child get beaten to death before trying to get help..This is a disgraceful school, and alot of the adults are trying to be buddies to the children..such shame.

  • I have found very few teachers, faculty,staff are actually concerned about these children...they talk without respect, therefore they do not get respect..I have noticed that when you call for information, some of the staff is rude, I am curious as to why they really do not care if children fail subjects without actually trying to find solutions...I am truly hoping this school will be shut down, or given help.
