I am a 7th grader at AIMS, and I think it is the best school i'd ever been to. Although I don't like the assistant principal, Mrs.Coleson (she expects us to act like mini adults and not talk at all) my amazing teachers make up for it. The arts options include: dance, drama, band, orchestra, and choir. You also choose a unified art, such as; phys ed, media art, visual art & technology. In 7th and 8th grade, you will have the opportunity to be on the volleyball team(girls only), soccer team(coed), or basketball team(girls and boys separate teams). I have a wonderful math teacher, Mr.Mastroianni, and the reason I like him is he just seems to get what its like being our age, and doesn't treat us like kids. Mrs.Mitchell, a 6th grade science teacher was the best science teacher I've ever had, and I actually remembered almost everything she taught us, because she taught it to us in such a unique way. The principal, Mr.Leavell, is excellent. He is just strict enough to keep us in line, and if we're good, he rewards us. I would highly recommend sending your child here if they like art or music, because they will love it.
