I think this school is great in ways and terrible in other ways. They really think bullying is a major deal which there isn't very much of course there is the talking behind the back and rumors but its impossible to stop that. The popularity is a huge deal in 6th grade i don't know about 7th or 8th but if your child can't handle pressure i really don't recommend this school. MOST of the 6th grade teachers are great! But there are some that are just mean. Some may seem mean but they are just helping you which really in the long run they are great teachers. I had Mr. Streng and Mr. McNeil which are both FANTASTIC teachers. Mr. McNeil pushes you which really is great but Mr. Streng is laid back so you feel more comfortable talking to him. I like this school a lot. very fun! :)

My stepson attends this school and I must say he really enjoys his classes. The teachers manage to keep him very enthusiastic about learning. Homework seems a bit heavy at times but that is not a major problem most days. The staff for the most part seem to be very friendly. One exception being the afternoon crossing guard who enjoys yelling at cars for no reason I can see! He scares me so we switched to using the bus. Other than that the school has been wonderful!

I attended this school in 7th grade, coming in the middle of the year, and was very welcomed. I was worried about starting a new school and not knowing anybody, but I made friends the first day, with both students and teachers! The teachers create a positive learning environment, and the students are very mature and have good manners, something that I have not seen in any school before. That is and will always be my favorite school, and I strongly recommend anyone considering enrolling their children for it.

AMS is the BEST!! The teachers are awesome and nice, they have great extra-curricular activities, and the best band ever!! They are very friendly there and you learn a lot. They do a lot of activities to get to know each other better, and it is an AWESOME school!!!

We came to Ashland in the late summer of '05 in order to have my son start 6th grade at the beginning of the year with everyone else. The entire community was very welcoming and the teachers at AMS are fantastic. Not just one or two, but all. My son had been in special ed for reading, writing and speech, but after one year at AMS he only needs help still with writing. The transition to this new school was a breeze. He made alot of new freinds and is actually comfortable and happy. Previously at other schools he hated it so much that he would beg to stay home or call me at work from the bathroom be cause he was miserable. Life is good here and I would strongly encourage any family to seriously consider moving to Ashland. You would never regret it.

I went to 6th grade at AMS and there really is no school like it. The teachers are creative and exciting with new ideas and they always find ways to make you feel right at home. The kids are the nicest you'll ever meet. One of my friends came to AMS in the middle of the year and instantly was surronded by wonderful friends I trhink she'll keep for a lifetime. She said that the 1st day was hard when she was just meeting people, but the very next day she felt like she had found her place in our community. I just moved from Ashland and started a new school. The 1st day was today and it was incredibly hard, but I'll consider myself lucky if the kids will welcome me 1/2 as much as my the AMS community accepted my friend. AMS is the best of the best!!
