I was greeted at the door by a pleasant voice who asked for my ID. Right then and there I knew my child would be attending a school who cares about his safety. When I approached the red-headed receptionist, she obviously was informed I was coming to register my child and welcomed me and my son to AMS. She was so pleasant and put my son at ease by addressing him about his summer activities. I was given a sticker to wear to identify myself with others. My positive experience only continued as I enrolled my son in the guidance department. The courses seem to be challenging and I look forward to meeting my son`s teachers.
