The school now has the National Junior Honor Society at the middle school. This has been a great development. It also has a Innovation Lab to support the new STEM initiative. One of the aspects of the school that concerned us at first, but we now support whole-heartedly, is the camps for 6th and 8th graders. The 6th and 8th graders go away for environmental camp for a week as part of off-campus enrichment. That is just a great experience for the kids! Lot's of sports, either through the school, or through club teams.

Amherst is a highly educated town. The community is brimming with successful professionals and business owners. That fact alone tells you about how much parents in this town want their kids to succeed in school. But there isn't as much keeping up with the Jones' like there is in towns like Hollis and Bedford. So students aren't judged for socio-economic reasons as much as you would think moving here from another state like we did. Of note, it says Nationally Recognized School of Excellence outside the school. From what I understand, AMS is one of just a few school nationally to be recognize three times as a national Blue Ribbon school.
There is a excellent combination between experienced teachers and new, younger teachers with a lot of energy in the school. Teachers are available to my child before and after normal school hours and there is a greater level of consistency in grading over the last few years. The new STEM teacher in the innovation lab is fantastic, and the new Dean of Instruction comes from a strong science background, which my family strongly supports.
