This school claims to preach what it does not practice. It's unfortunate that our principal is a terrible leader. She is cold, unapproachable and only cares about the ones who have the most money.
It is very sad how this school has changed ... I highly suggest enrolling your child in public school to get a higher level
AMS is a great school with caring teachers and supportive administrators. It has superlative academics, sports and activities, but, most importantly, a WONDERFUL Catholic community. Our children are supported and loved while they learn. I like that the school emphasizes faith, service and kindness.
I'm not sure where the negative reviews and vitriol are originating from but that definitely has not been my experience. My children love going to school there and love the principal. I feel like the personal attack of her below is unwarranted and sounds unhinged. Bullied and threatened?? Please take that review with a grain of salt.
If you are considering AMS, take a tour and see what makes this school so special.
AMS has growing problems with its principal and administration. It's education is good, not great nor excellent. Many graduating families say that the public school system in the area better prepares the students for high school. It is known throughout the school that Principal Connelly has bullied and threatened parents and students since her coming to AMS in 2009. Families like the convenience and the amenities of AMS, but have ongoing problems with the principal's harsh tactics. If you ask students, almost all will say she never visits classes and nor is ever seen on school grounds- though she claims to know all of he students. The principal sends families performance surveys of teachers but never for herself. Why? Monsignor is to retire soon and unfortunately seems to let things be. AMS is loosing their "Catholic" mission- loving, kind hearted, understanding and patience- expected for what it was originally built for. Until they remove the principal it will only get worse. If you have other choices, consider it before AMS. You will save yourself from the issues so many families are experiencing. It's an issue WOSC should be surveying as well.
