    "We just moved to town two years ago. We have young kids but one in the middle school. When we moved here, we we're a touch concerned because the facilities are a bit drab. But the education is amazing. I don't know where to start. From the dances, to sports, to the maker space and availability of teachers, we are so glad we chose Amherst over the other towns in the area. The town to the north has beautiful facilities, but the class sizes are outrageous. The town to the south we looked at is very traditional and shares their school with another town that's more rough around the edges. Amherst's schools reflect the community. A community of bright, educated professionals that are family oriented. We have loved our decision."

    "It was okay, like any middle school experience was. It was awkward and in a time of transition. Good teachers, some that needed to retire, but overall alright."

    "Amherst is a highly educated town. The community is brimming with successful professionals and business owners. That fact alone tells you about how much parents in this town want their kids to succeed in school. But there isn't as much keeping up with the Jones' like there is in towns like Hollis and Bedford. So students aren't judged for socio-economic reasons as much as you would think moving here from another state like we did. Of note, it says Nationally Recognized School of Excellence outside the school. From what I understand, AMS is one of just a few school nationally to be recognize three times as a national Blue Ribbon school."

    "There is a excellent combination between experienced teachers and new, younger teachers with a lot of energy in the school. Teachers are available to my child before and after normal school hours and there is a greater level of consistency in grading over the last few years. The new STEM teacher in the innovation lab is fantastic, and the new Dean of Instruction comes from a strong science background, which my family strongly supports."
