AMD offers a unique opportunity for kids to grow, learn and connect with a great variety of students. If a child is motivated, she or he will be very busy! With our kids coming of age in a global community, I can't think of a better public school to prepare for that than AMD.

They really demonstrate caring. They individualize classroom teaching, maintain excellent contact with parents, and offer after-school support.

Kids have time to pursue extracurriculars such as music, sports and dance at the most challenging levels while still meeting or exceeding expectations in school.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

The principal is a strong believer in the clear boundaries and expectations that create a respectful atmosphere in the classroom and on campus. Part of the ethic of AMD is respect for others who may be less privileged. We were not interested in exposing our kids to a school where they would feel you are sub-human if you don't carry a designer handbag.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

Unlike many Westchester schools, AMD offers children daily opportunities to get to know kids of many different backgrounds, to appreciate them as fellow human beings, and to learn to live in community.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

The teachers and administration get to know the students and really tune into them as individuals. Parent-teacher communication is excellent.

I'm a former middle school teacher with a Masters degree in early adolescence education. My daughter is finishing sixth grade at AMD, and the team of teachers she's had have done a good job creating a caring, collaborative environment. Academics are adequately rigorous, and socially they do a tremendous job creating a singular community identity out of a very diverse group!

AMD is an absolutely WONDERFUL school...in every aspects...teachers, counselors, the whole team...THEY CARE....and I am currently looking into some research for a move and CANNOT find ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE;..they have set one heck of a standard of which seems IMPOSSIBLE to follow..I have my work cut out for me. THANK YOU to the ENTIRE staff/faculty of AMD and the ENTIRE OSD. Will MOST CERTAINLY MISS YOU ALL. My son had special needs and thanks to them we were all like one big family who worked hard with the kids to make them got to where they are and need to be. THANK YOU.
