Open Quote This school is awful. Please do not send your kids here. Teachers and administrators knowing violate state law.

Each school district shall have a procedure for a parent, guardian, or an adult student, 18 years of age or older, to review the content of the instructional materials to be provided to a minor child or to an adult student and, if the parent, guardian, or adult student objects to the content, to make reasonable arrangements with school personnel for alternative instruction. ... School personnel may not impose an academic or other penalty upon a student merely for arranging alternative instruction under this section. [Minnesota Statutes 120B.20] Close Quote

Open Quote I am extremely disappointed in AMS. The communication about any/everything happening at the school is non-existent. The majority of my child's teachers have been callous and uninterested in helping reach goals and overcome hurdles. I fault the administration for building a community that is only interested in some of their student's well being and achievement. My child's self-confidence and interest in learning has decreased dramatically in one academic year; I am heartbroken and disappointed. Close Quote

Open Quote I teach at Anthony and have taught there since 2003. It is an amazing school with outstanding leadership. We are currently going through the authorization process to become an IB (international baccalaureate) school. Amazing things are happening at Anthony every day. The teachers strive to deliver a rigorous curriculum and do many things to strengthen our school community and foster togetherness. It is a place where the students WANT to be. Close Quote

Open Quote I had REALLY high hopes for this school! My daughter and I picked it because we had heard great things about it, we visited it and it seemed to have a lot to offer, great sports and other extra curriculars. Well, if you are looking for a school where a 6th grader can jump into all the action DO NOT pick this school. It has HORRIBLE communication, so if you're not on the PTA or otherwise actively involved, because you have work and other things that you need to do, don't expect to be kept in the loop about anything. Also, we were told almost immediately after the start of the school year that it would be a waste of my daughter's time to even try out for volleyball, as most 6th graders don't make it. Drama Club - nope - they didn't have auditions or anything it was just random, some kids who wanted in got in and some, like my daughter didn't. So far she has wanted to do volleyball, drama club and softball and hasn't gotten to do any. There has been NO communciation about when practices or tryouts are for any sports. Nothing. A total disappointment!!!! 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.
