    To much homework and you don't get to see some of your friends that much

    It is amazing to me that I can walk into AMS any day and find the place full of smiling faces. It seems to me that the teachers love working there and the students are happy and engaged. I thought junior high was full of angst!? Apparently its not so bad at this school. I'm thrilled my daughter was able to spend two of the most traumatic (pre-teen) years at such a wonderful school. I'm eternally grateful to her teachers for the extra attention they gave to her as she struggled through some material mid-year. Her grades are great and she's ready for high school! No surprise that AMS won an award last year for being the best middle school in the state.
