Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School Reviews

Excellent education that provides classes of many different levels going into college level for students to choose from. While the classes may seem challenging, I can guarantee that they prepare the individual very well for college, especially in the math, science, and writing departments. The student body is extremely diverse and come from different towns. Many teachers are very intelligent and helpful and the school graduates many accomplished students both in and out of the classroom.

The administration had been rocky in my time as a student but since hearing from other students and staff and visiting the school again, it is in perfect care under Dr. Lewis. Things will only go up from now
Review Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School
As a senior at this school, I am not satisfied with my experience. AMSA has seen better days. Throughout the years the school has gotten worse and worse. Although AMSA does provide a good education offering many advanced classes, the administration is absolutely terrible. We have gotten new administrators almost every year, there is constant change, and not in a positive way. Almost half of the teachers at the school last year all left for different job. AMSA doesn't have a gym or field. Fortunately they are still able to have physical education by renting time in the indoor sports facility, Forkicks next to the school. Overall, I have not enjoyed my time spent at AMSA Charter School. I would much rather have gone to a different public school. Although they have strong academics, I would no recommend this school to anyone looking for a regular, fun high school experience.
I moved to AMSA from the public school in my town, and I had the greatest time here. I knew everyone's name in my grade and everyone was mostly friendly towards one another. The most unique thing about AMSA in my experience is the bond between the students that is formed after going to school together for so long. The bond between students and select teachers is quite strong as well. The teachers and staff are really what made the school and its environment great, and motivated students to push themselves through the rigors of AMSA. If the administration and environment of this school hadn't changed from my first few years here, I would definitely do it all over again, and recommend it to everyone.



However, our current administration has created a terrible environment for parents, students, and teachers. Many of our best teachers left because the new administration was hostile towards them. Recently, our entire uniform was changed, including excessively harsh punishments for violations (aka being kept out of class, suspension on the third violation, etc). These changes have forced parents to spend hundreds of dollars on brand new uniforms for students who may be in their last year here, and not being able to reuse many of the old clothes they wore for so long. Admin ignores parent and student requests and complaints. Quite frequently, it seems like it's a war between families and admin because many feel that they have no control over the frequent, unnecessary changes that go on here. It's made the school much less enjoyable and it has really had an effect on our teaching staff and on the attitudes of the students. As long as this keeps up, I would recommend sending your children elsewhere.
