Albuquerque Institute for Mathematics and Science is an excellent school for students who are seeking college-readiness. This school is incredibly challenging, and students can expect to spend many hours a week completing homework and assignments. The teachers here are excellent at what they do. Middle school and high school students here continuously receive higher PARCC scores than their competitors; however, I would not recommend this school to anyone who is seeking a path in the arts. This school focuses heavily on STEM subjects. Furthermore, this is a charter school so students can expect to work with other students from grades 6-12. Although this school does incredible academically, this school needs more clubs, sport teams, and tutoring programs. Everything here is fast pace, and it becomes very easy to fall behind; however, if a person is seeking an incredible education in the Albuquerque area, I highly recommend this school.

I originally came to the school because the principal gave a huge speech about how she made it the best school in NM and how people are becoming the best students in the country but that is just all lies. Rather than making it better, the principal going to meetings with senators, etc. to show how great she is. They have 2 years of world language. You need atleast 3 (usually 4) to get into a good school. They have no career/tech center. You have five classes (math, sci, hist, engl, and one elective). They have 3 elective opportunities. There is no real life experience nor any classes that focus more on certain subjects. They also provide no choice they set apart each class every year and you can't change that. There is also no arts/music program at all. . The building is cramped, there are no resources and the principal never does anything.
I have attended this school since sixth grade and every year there has been either some time of improvement or downfall. If it isn't with the teachers its with the building. Considering the fact that this school is a school of choice and a lottery based school it is very good. Although we have had to share buildings with UNM, AIMS has a very good college readiness and college opportunities. Besides the headaches, tears, dedication and effort i have had to use to go to this school it is an excellent choice.
