I have been at AIMS since I have been in sixth grade. I have learned so much and haven received the opportunity to take dual exams enrollment classes and to experience many things I couldn’t have if I went to a regular school. I have completed a Science Fair Project 6 times; with this, I learned how to present to others in a professional manner. I have also had the opportunity to be on the Archery Team. The AIMS Varsity archery team has won first place at the NM NASP Tournament for many years now. The teachers want the students to do their best and to strive to be better. The school is very academically challenging, but I feel very prepared for college. I have met many incredible people while at this school. I would recommend AIMS to students and parents who are ready to take on a more challenging education. I have loved it here!

While the school does prepare students for the rigor and dedication needed for many STEM college fields, the unfortunate truth is that the administration is completely disconnected from the student body. As a senior at the school and having attended it since the sixth grade, while the academics of the school are undoubtedly exemplary, the school does not foster an environment conductive to student growth, both personal and academic. It is virtually impossible for the administration to even consider listening to student input, and the administration lacks all respect for the student body and disregards many legitimate complaints of both students and parents.
We feel extremely lucky to have our child attend AIMS! The administration and teachers have been very attentive and I’ve even seen the principal out at the pick up line! Academics are stressed and my daughter is excelling in the environment. We have not come across bullies unlike the public schools she attended, and feel most students desire academic success. A great school!
