AMS Parent - FB Review

“The Academy of Math & Science has been such a blessing for my son and myself. The teachers and staff have treated my ‘special needs’ boy with respect, as well as the firmness he needs. They have been responsive & professional in every way. The office staff & administrators are the very best!! I was not surprised at all when AMS was named #1, but rather was pleased that the state recognized what was obvious to me.

AMS Parent - FB Review

“My girls and I love the Academy of Math and Science. They’ve both been there since kindergarten and are now fifth and sixth graders. We are very happy with the curriculum and how far ahead they are academically than if they were in a regular public school. I have no doubt that when they finish the eighth grade they will be more than ready for high school. My grandson started kindergarten there this year and will be continuing with AMS as well.”
