Open Quote Every morning my sleepy KG son asked me "Do we go to school today?", and when I said "Yes", he jumped from his bed with "Hooray!" He is happy as he can be with his caring teacher, administrators who know all children names and characters, and his classmates who are all his good friends. I am very happy with AMS too, but not only because my son is safe, pampered and joyful at school, but because the academic level is above all expectations. At the end of KG ALL students in his class read books and write 5-sentences compositions. They finished the 1st grade math program in KG, so you can send them buy groceries, and they will bring you the exact change. Next year, in 1st grade they will do the 2nd grade program, and so one. Every week children have a poetry to learn. They have music twice per week, Art, and other electives. Every day a club is offered after school, as well as free tutoring and homework help. At the beginning I was afraid of the homework, but at the end of the year I am only happy with it: the homework process is now as natural as brushing the teethes, because it started at this early age.

Open Quote My daughter was not being challenged at her previous middle school. She attended AMS for 8th grade this year. The difference in her outlook on school is astounding. She is motivated and earned straight A’s. She also won many local and state awards for writing, math and art. When considering her options for high school, she chose to stay at AMS because of the person attention she receives from the excellent teachers. She is also excited about the dual-credit classes she can take to earn college credit. On this last day of school, we both look forward to her high school career at AMS. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
