What families say
about our school:
AMS is the perfect experience to teach children how to 'root' within themselves and community. It provides both a soothing and a self-guided learning opportunity for every student blessed to attend.

Going to AMS was a wonderful experience for our daughter. The school gave her so many ways to explore her creativity - writing, pottery, papermaking, bookbinding, carpentry - and even blacksmithing.
— Wendi Gratz, Parent
The wonderful staff at AMS met my child where they were and gave them the room to rediscover their love of learning. They formed strong relationships and flourished in the individualized, experiential, and developmentally respectful community.
— Laura Kinsey, Parent
Each of my three kids had their unique educational needs met at AMS. It left them all well prepared academically and emotionally for the rest of their education.
