Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School Reviews

I currently attend school here and enjoy it. The standards for students are high at AMSA , and the academics are especially rigorous. Though well known for STEM, the humanities are also great with excellent teachers. Following many years of turnover, the current administration is wonderful! School spirit is a little low, I would say partly due to a lack of a traditional football team and the school's emphasis on academics. However, many students participate in sports here as well as various clubs/activities.

When I learned as a 10-year-old that I would be attending AMSA for 6th grade, I cried because I didn't want to leave my hometown friends, be forced into a uniform, or learn advanced math. However, as an alumni of the class of 2017, I can say that it was a privilege to attend a high school that has ranked between #4-#1 in the state of Massachusetts for several years in a row. My academics and exposure to diversity were so much more than I could have gotten anywhere else. However, as a Charter School that's mission is explicitly to offer an amazing education to students of all backgrounds, more work has to be done in terms of fostering an anti-racist community to make POC students, especially Black, feel like they belong.
I entered AMSA in the middle of my freshman year, and coming from public school it was very intimating to be surrounded by so many smart people my age. As time went on though, it was clear to see that the teachers really care about their students and give an enormous amount of support and guidance. Although AMSA's academics can be very rigorous and time-consuming, it makes me feel ready college. The small environment and smaller classes help in grasping the content much better than I did when I went to public school.
On the flip side, the school has non-appetizing lunch, the admin and dean can be aggressive at times, there is never enough parking, the buildings are falling apart and the school drains your energy and social life.
