AMS is configured using a team approach to teaching and learning. Our configurations are as follows:
The sixth grade team at AMS includes six teachers working together in two person teams. Each classroom of students is assigned to one primary teacher who will be the homeroom teacher and will teach the core instruction in either language arts and social studies or math and science. The partner teacher will provide instruction in the other core subjects not taught by the homeroom teacher.
Seventh and Eighth Grade Blended Teams
Seventh and eighth graders are grouped together for language arts, social studies, science, math, physical education and Spanish classes.
Students spend the majority of their day together on these teams with their team of teachers. Currently there are two 7th and 8th grade teams.
At AMS students have the opportunity take a variety of Cultural Art classes. The following classes are currently offered at AMS:
- WAMS (Video Production)
- Theatre Studies
- Speech & Debate
