Every tuesday before school we have a bible study where you attend there instead of breakfeast called RAMS FOR CHRIST and we talk about god and worship himto the fullest and then one of the rams pray and then we eat donuts and go to class, filled with the knnowledge of the lord. We also offer communications class, business and computer science and much more you just HAVE to go to ama and become a ram to d some of the things we enjoy at ama. AMA takes students who shows good grades, behavior, and charcter to a thing called eyoe( end of the year extraganza)m where we go to double churches swimmimg pool to go swimmimg while others are at school. we also go skating on ICE if we read a million and/or over million. we also have another thing called crct celebration where the ENTIRE school outside is filled with bouncy houses and face painting and other carnival outings. but come join the fun an become a official ram at ARNOLD MAGNET ACADMEY ! HOORAY ! Our girls have won 30 games in a row with no lost and this year we will make it 45 ! we also have came in the top 5 in the crct scores out of all middle schools in the county and this year we are DETERMINED to become 1 . because that is what rams do and we are absolutley proud. i am a formal ram myself in the 7th grade and i was there for 6th grade and will attend for 8th and i know in my heart that we are the best of the best.
