Welcome aboard ARMS Scholars and Parents,


    Austin Road Middle School will cultivate an environment for creativity, innovation and leadership where we exceed expectations every day.

    Mission Statement

    Austin Road Middle School strives to develop a nurturing school community that encourages academic success for each scholar through a rigorous curriculum and extracurricular opportunities supported by dedicated teachers and staff.

    I am Mrs. Heena Patel. I am going to be your 6th Grade Earth Science teacher. I welcome you all to another wonderful academic year ahead. 

    I was born and raised in INDIA, a land of the Himalayas and with an incredible culture. My area of interest since childhood has been Science and I hold a master’s degree in science along with a bachelor’s in education. I am certified in Broad Field Science(6-12), Chemistry (6-12), Middle School Science(4-8), Middle School Reading(4-8) and Gifted Endorsed. Being in the field of education is my passion. This is my 29th year teaching and 3rd year at ARMS. It gives me an immense joy to be one who can make a difference in the life of a child. I am blessed with opportunities to cater to students at elementary, middle and high school levels.

    My backbone is my family, comprising of a loving husband who is a professor in Engineering college, an adorable daughter who is a dentist and a caring son who is an engineer. I have one sibling.

    My favorite colors are black, white and all shades of blue. I love cooking, traveling and spending time with friends and family. I believe in being simple and spiritual. Happiness for others and myself is my wish for life.

    I am excited about working with 6th grade scholars and parents. Communication is the best way to achieve our goals and you may contact me through my email heena.patel@henry.k12.ga.us or contact the school office to set up a conference.


    Looking forward to a rocking year ahead,

    Mrs. Heena Patel
