All three of my children attended this outstanding school during their pre-k and grade school years. All the way through middle school and high school, they credited much of their success on how AMI challenged them to do their best and built this foundation of reaching their full potential at an early age that carried with them through their successful lives today. The teachers challenge the children so they learn at an early age what they are capable of and they allow the children to reach their goals without holding them back as a traditional school does. They allow the child to grow at their accelerated pace and they carry that knowledge as a foundation throughout their lives. My children (adults) have a bright future with much promise, because they have the drive that was instilled in them at an early age that has brought them much success and happiness. Enroll your children in AMI and you will see the benefits in the future - roll with the challenges the children will face and encourage them - it will help them in the long run and enable goals to be met with ease and control. Welcome their philosophy and your child will benefit greatly.
While the school and philosophy themselves are excellent, the people there are unreasonably strict. I would not feel comfortable recommending this school to others. I was treated unfairly and with seeming contempt during my five years there. Be warned.
I think this is an awesome school. It builds the foundation necessary for higher education. It is a small school and hence the teacher-parent interaction is excellent. All the teachers know all the parents and vice versa. The school believes in instilling discipline in the kids. The school has great teachers and I am very happy that both my kids go there.
