Like most schools, AMS has its fair balance of advantages and disadvantages.
This school's takes an engaging approach to learning. Teachers encourage students to become active learners in this school through in-class discussions and creative project assignments. Although it seems otherwise, the students in this school develop a strong sense of community through advisory groups and extracurricular activities.
However, if I could change a few things about this school it would be its tightly limited provision of AP and IB courses, its lack of variety of varsity sports (only including cross country, wrestling, softball, basketball, and baseball), and to a lesser extent, its uniform policy, which absolutely adds nothing to the students' sense of community within the school.

The school has one goal in mind, to raise diligent college ready scholars. Teachers take the initiative to get to know their students, they are always in orderly conduct, and actions such as a bi-weekly advisory period are meant to set aside time to offer counseling to each individual student. From the 10th grade onward, supplementary SAT classes are offered to students at no extra cost, and supervising deans do their best to ensure student safety.
Great experience with the people and faculty in the building but alot of the faculty were very unapproachable. Nevertheless, I can say I felt very welcomed into the school and the system of grouping into classes based on grades worked very well. If you were at the top of your classes when I went there, you were in a higher class each year. For example, 6th, 7th, and grade I was in group B,F, and I respectively.
