    "My experience at this school has be great. Most of the teachers are very knowledgeable in their field, have effective teaching styles, and are kind and understanding. There is no social hierarchy here and there is hardly any social pressure to fit in. I also feel well prepared for college. All of the teachers are good, and the school does not prioritize its top students or honors classes over everyone else. It is a fair, welcoming, school that really cares about each of its students. Being connected to a large public school like Cottonwood is also positive. AMES students get the benefits of a small school with all of the amenities and extra curricular options of a large school. The diversity of both schools is also a great environment to learn in, and Cottonwood activities are accepting of AMES participants. This school may not be a perfect fit for everyone, but for those who it does fit, it will be a great and formative high school experience."

    "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."

    "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."

    "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."
