This school feels like family. My son, daughter and niece all attend A.M.I.S. My daughter and niece, are both in kindergarten, and spend quite a lot of time singing and speaking in Spanish together every where we go. The majority of the teachers are native speakers and are immersing them in the language and culture. My son has attended since preschool and speaks fondly of all his friends and teachers, and has a great respect for the principal. What started off spectacularly in preschool has progressed rapidly and the children amaze me every day with their learning and I am glad I decided to place my children at A.M.I.S. If there is one con, it is that I cannot be there as much as I want to to support the school and my children more often. Go Musketeers!!!

I love this school. The principal, teachers, and support staff work together to educate students in the core curriculum while at the same time teaching them to become fluent Spanish speakers. There are many extra-curricular activities, such as Young Readers, Robotics Team, AMIS Ambassadors, and Girls Action League that help students to become well-rounded individuals and develop leadership skills.

I have 2 children, 1st and 2nd grade that attend here. We are in a temporary location while our new school is being built so i feel like things are somewhat unorganized. My children have learned spanish so well already. I look forward to settling in the new school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.
