              About AMS

Armuchee Middle School (AMS) is one of four middle schools in the Floyd County School System. Located in northern Floyd County on Highway 140 in an area called Armuchee, AMS has a reputation of being one of the best middle schools in northwest Georgia. With high expectations and strong support from all stakeholders, AMS is leading the way in providing a quality education and meeting the challenge of leaving no child behind.

Since 2002, AMS has been located at it present location. Before 2002, AMS was on the campus of Armuchee High School, having once been combined with the high school to make up a junior high and high institution.

Mrs. Brenda Atkins was the first principal of AMS, serving from 2002-2005, with Albert Watters and Debra Jarvis serving as the school's first assistant principals. From 2005-2008, Bill Gilbert served as principal, with Albert Watters, Debra Jarvis, Mike Slinkard, and La Donna Turrentine all serving as assistant principals. From 2008-2011, Albert Watters served as principal, with Adam Clemons and Becky McCoy serving as assistant principals. In 2009, Jill Thacker replaced Becky McCoy as an assistant principal. In 2011, Steve Turrentine was named principal.

Dr. Jeff McDaniel is currently serving as Superintendent of the Floyd County School System. Mr. Terry Williamson is currently serving as the Floyd County Board of Education member for the Armuchee area.

Former Judge Larry Salmon, an Armuchee native and local historian, has written that the meaning of the Cherokee word "Armuchee" could mean "Land of Beautiful Flowers" or "much water," but the exact meaning is not known. Regardless, Armuchee is one of the best locations to live in northwest Georgia and one of the fastest growing areas of Floyd County.

A Letter from your principal


It’s hard to believe that  we are moving toward the end of another school year, I’m sure your children enjoyed the winter weather and the extra time out of school. As nice as it was to spend some unexpected time with family, I am hoping that we will be able to finish the school year without any more surprises.

We have had an excellent year so far and are looking forward to successful remaining few months.

The end of the school year always seems to arrive quickly. Often, the thoughts of end-of-the-year activities, summer, and warmer weather distracts students from what’s most important. Please continue to encourage your child to finish the year strong by putting forth their best effort everyday. I want to thank you for your support as we could not teach your students to this degree without a good school/home partnership.

Mr. Turrentine
