Our daughter entered 6th grade last fall and had previously attended a private school so we were a little nervous about AMS. Our trepidation was unwarranted--our daughter LOVES everything about this school and we have been very impressed with the activities clubs parental involvement and communication from the teachers and school as well as the education she has received.

Algonquin Middle School is a great school. I am on my fourth child in this school and AMS has done nothing but improved. The student involvement sports clubs and staff are wonderful! I would recommend this school to anyone. You will be very pleased!
I have my third child at AMS and have seen the school evolve over the past 7 years. The teachers and administration are very responsive to the needs of the child including both weaker students and gifted students. Parent involvement is high and welcome by all District 300 schools.
