They are a bad school; they suspended people for reasons that aren't even serious like my friends where sent to is for talking too loud and one there a crumb at someone and the 8th-grade principal was going to suspend them but a lunch lady got them out of it

Excellent school indeed, most students are light skinned and that means its safe (no racial comment to be offended by) I am current student and I love it the education is great and organizes you depending on your current PARC testing grades

I can't believe all the reviews, and neither should you. I have seven children (yes seven children) and two attend Cces about to got to ams, the other five attend ams, now let me tell you about it, they have excellent teachers except one who is very lazy, I'm not saying names but she's very lazy. My only concern is that its crowded, the race over there is mainly white, the fights are quite limited, if you want you should set up a tour (I'm not sure if that's still possible; safety reasoning) the lack of cleanliness was taken care of back in December, the new principal is a go getter and will work with your child if they have learning problems. If you don't believe me about how good the education is, watch the grading system online, its a safe school overall, they do lockdown drills, but they don't tell you if its real or not so everyone can be quiet, I do volunteer and the kids with learning problems are a tad bit out of hand and that's okay because the teachers always grab their attention back fast. I'd give this school a 9/10 rating mainly because the sign out system needs to be improved. Thank you for reading thru my review I hope you will let your child go here and watch them excel.
