AWMS (A-Dub) is a very good school for middle age kids. The staff is tight and the admin is wonderful to work with. We have had a great but very fast year and I do not look forward to the summer. The kids have such potential and the teachers work very hard to bring it out. Unforturnately, we do not catch all the shinanigans that go on but we do have good discipline and alot of love!! Go ADUB!
