The facilities are also very small so if you walk through the halls you will knock into someones arm because the hallways are so narrow and not built for a school. Don't get me wrong 6th and 7th grade were fun but now all you talk to your friends about is school or what class they have next. The school itself is rather boring and tedious with the same routines everyday of learning, studying , taking a test, homework, repeat. Their is a lot of pressure to be the best since the school is a top school. The teachers make it very clear that you cannot fail. I personally do not think I will be attending AMSA for high school. I do love my friends but it is only just a very small little group.I really want to get a good high school experience and do electives that I know I will enjoy plus many more things. AMSA may work for some people just not
I loved my first two years at AMSA. I had gone to a school that was very small so it was a big and exciting change. Don't get me wrong I am glad I am went here but, now being an 8th grader my opinions on this school have changed. You stick with the same group for many years since their isn't a wide variety of students. Just in a normal day you have to walk outside a lot to change in between buildings.You cannot wear jackets in class so you have to carry them around until you go outside. In high school there is nothing that changes for 8th graders other than electives and a larger work load. Many of the electives offered are just the basic
As someone who was not challenged at all in a public school, AMSA has tested my skills and allowed me not only to learn at a faster pace but also urged me to be engaged and interested in my learning. I love the challenge, and I have found myself excelling in subjects I was previously uninterested in! However, the workload can be very overwhelming at times. It would be nice if the school could find a way to preserve the challenge of its courses without placing unnecessary stress on its students.

I think that AMSA was a good place for me to go, academically speaking. However, it is also important to note that, socially, I felt kind of like an outsider for years here. The culture is kind of exclusive in that way at times. I managed to overcome this, but not until later in high school. Also, I'd have to say that if there was anything that needs to be improved on it would be that teachers need to assign homework while bearing in mind that we take classes other than theirs and that certain clubs, like Speech and Debate, get way less funding than the STEM ones, hence their need to be mostly student run.
AMSA is a wonderful school. My daughter has been attending the school since 6th grade and this year she will be a Junior. The teachers at AMSA are a huge reason for the schools success. They are enthusiastic about the subjects they teach and since the class sizes are relatively small they get to know their students which I feel helps them to succeed. Dr. Lewis and Mrs. Lindsey are the new Executive Director and Principal. They are wonderful and are making a positive impact by being very interactive and involved with the students. I feel that we are well past the negativity that was displayed by the previous administration. I am proud to say that my daughter is a student at AMSA!!
The teachers here spend time catering to the needs of each individual student while keeping the pace of learning up. Every class involved critical thinking skills and taught us not what the material was, but how to think about the material. A heavy emphasis on the conceptual and theoretical prepared me adequately for college. In addition to stellar academics, the school provided a plethora of extra-curricular activities that helped me narrow down my interests and select a handful of passions to pursue in my life.
Both my kids attend AMSA. The administration is very supportive and caring. They truly work hard to help students excel and flourish. The majority of teachers and the student body are wonderful as well.
definitely recommend it if your son/daughter got picked in its admission lottery.
Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School does live up to it's name. It's rigorous academic atmosphere helps promote competitiveness and shapes each student to be unique in their varying interests. It has provided me with the tools to learn effectively and inspired my curiosity to learn more!
The teaching was overall mediocre. Some of the best teachers only teach the high level classes, so expect a bad experience until you hit calculus and AP classes.

The students are often heavily pressured by their parents making an unpleasant environment.
I truly appreciated the diversity in our school community. The teachers here constantly pushed me to do my best and taught me how to think for myself and enjoy learning. Although the buildings are not great and school spirit and support for academic teams need improvement, I had a great experience overall.
Now that our Administration has gotten better I think that AMSA will really get back on it's feet again. I think AMSA has really prepared me for college and I'm really excited for my new journey.
I don't think AMSA should change much, the teachers are always willing to help but some don't do anything about bully. The only thing I would suggest is AMSA should get a field hockey team.
I started attending AMSA in sixth grade, and ended up being put in the advanced classes in math, biology, computer science, and english. I feel as though I have experienced many of the most difficult classes here, and I feel like I am very well prepared for a strong future. With the small, core group of students in each grade, not only do I feel as though that my class is close and that I know each individual person very well, but I also get to know my teachers extremely well, with the average class size likely being under 20 students. My AP Literature course held 9 students total, and I was very excited because English was never my strong suit. Getting this near to one to one help and being so close with everyone in the classroom is something that I believe can only happen here.
The teachers are either amazing or totally unreasonable. The work can get to be a bit much at times and but not always.
Great curriculum with a select few teachers who are really committed to bettering students as individuals. The student body has questionable actions at times and in the past admin has been uncooperative. There is a greater focus on achieving high scores compared to increasing understanding and knowledge.
The culture of the school has always been very positive and the last year with great changes to staff and admin the Schools feels more stronger than ever. Curriculum is intense from middle school to high school you get challenged all the time. Support from the teachers is awesome!
A really great opportunity for students looking for an environment that's easy to learn in. Students can expect to find classes where they are pushed to succeed, with teachers that are passionate about their subjects.

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
AMSA is very driven in their math and science programs, but also very good in their humanities programs as well. AMSA's high school program is rated second in the state.
