    "AHMS is a true middle school, not a mini high school (junior high) or a glorified elementary school. From the principal, vice principal, on through the teachers and maintenance staff, students are known and cared for at this school. Students are placed on either of two teams at each grade level, with 5 core teachers. The teachers of these teams meet regularly to discuss curriculum and any student concerns. Students do not slip through the cracks. There is a wonderful music program (band, orchestra and chorus), arts, foreign languages (in 7th grade all students rotate through French, Spanish, German and Russian, in 8th grade choosing to study one of them). The after school programs are amazing (about 20 or more of them) and they include a bus home all for only $35. There is a full compliment of sports, and on spirit days all activities are celebrated, not just the sports. Every student is given an opportunity to grow and try new things, and is embraced by the school-wide community. We have had friends move to the school district from nearby, just to have an opportunity for their children to attend this middle school. We chose to live here, based much on this school. No regrets."

    "I was in AHMS but I am now moving on to the high school. I can say, it was a great experience. The teachers were wonderful, the guidance counselors proved helpful many times for me, and the principal takes care of business. The vice principal however seems a bit biased against you, though. Like in Communist China he acts like you are Guilty until proven innocent, while in a Democracy it is Innocent until proven guilty. I didn't quite like him as much; he gave me unnecessary trouble. However, I do approve of everything else at this school, despite the dresscode being a bit strict."
