    "When I was invited to apply to AMES I was told it isn't like any other charter school, they teach More in the shop and lab than lectures in the class room, well that is a complete lie. Its just like any other average school. the classroom routine is a lecture followed by tedious homework every night. The principle is a pretty cool guy but I don't like how He runs the school. I participated in the Robotics club my freshman and sophomore years and found it fun and inviting till it was suddenly run a lot differently in my junior year then it was my sophomore and freshman years, it suddenly became a lot less about teaching the kids how to work as a team and raise leaders, to teaching the kids how to obey the boss or else. The only thing I found nice about this school in my four years of being here is the fact that I knew all of my peers really well. despite being friends with only a few. Would I choose ames again if I could? The answer is no."

    "What I liked about AMES is how hands on it is. I love how there are only around 500 students so all the teachers know you and put in time for you. What i wished would change is how much slack they give at the beginning then by the end there is none. What I think this does is let the students think they have time to turn things in but that only sets them up to fail later in the year."

    "Overall I am a proud to be a student at ames. The teachers are very friendly they actually care about your grades they even pay attention to what kind of person you are so as to not make you uncomfortable. The homework isnt a crazy amount well for me but even if you have problems you could always go talk to your teacher during after or before school. The schools makes an effort to make everyone achieve the most they can."

    "The Academy for Math Engineering and Science is excellent. The teachers are well taught in their area of expertise and have a way with bonding with students. They are able to help the students reach and achieve academic requirements. The atmosphere is great. The students are kind and uplift each other. Never will there be a crying student or gossip floating around. Where ever you go their will be students using their talents or sharing their interest. Whether it be computers, robotics, art, guitar, music or solving puzzles like the Rubix cube in under 30 seconds. This school is great and there is nothing i would change about it."
