    "A huge disappointment. teachers struggle to manage classroom behavior. Smarter children are not able to advance in the curriculum. Behavior on the buses is out of control. Lack of leadership."

    "I love AMS!!! It is amazing and I never want to move. The advanced math program is amazing. It allows students to learn at their own pace. The teachers are amazing and make school enjoyable. For every complaining parent, just ask your kid how they feel about their school. Maybe you'll be surprised."

    "I am not sure what other reviewers have experienced by way of comparison to other schools, but AMS is highly over-rated. I moved here three years ago from a "10" rated district and it is like night and day...AMS being night. It would take an hour to list all of the deficiencies but this one should be clearly understood. The school may be an "8" but it has also been identified as a school needing improvement in mathematics by the State of NH. Not exactly a mystery why, they DO NOT EVEN HAVE TEXTBOOKS FOR 8th grade Math!! Nor study guides, so when the kids have homework they better know the material because they have no book, no examples, and only parents and the internet to rely on. Last, on the whole, with some exceptions, the school is arrogant towards parents and has the belief that they are the dog and the parents are the tail. Personally, it is offensive because Parents are the dog and the school is the tail. Tax dollars tell me so."

    "The teacher "teams" generally do not work as a team, They fail to coordinate manageable homework loads, routinely exceeding the school handbook guidelines for homework time."

    "The math department is a mess, they lack materials and the administration does not seem to care. For this affluent town, there is no excuse for that."
