History in the Making


AMS Scored an EXCELLENT rating on the SC Dept. of Education's Annual Report Card.  We are so proud of our students, faculty, and staff for accomplishing this academic goal!  In fact AMS was recognized for its growth and academic accomplishments as compared to both local and state-wide schools.  We are all hoping for a repeat performance!  

Thank you to all the parents, business partners, and community members for your support.  It truly takes a whole school/community effort to accomplish a rating of Excellent.  We all have a lot of reasons to be proud.
