Dedicated Grade Team Support for Student Academic Achievement, Social-Emotional Needs and Post-Secondary Success
College demands strong writing skills. Our scholars practice writing in every subject, and by graduation, can write well for different purposes and for varying audiences. Writing is assessed formally each trimester in the Core Content classes and instruction driven by a close attention to writing skills across the curriculum.
Our Mentorship program has been an integral part of the AMS II community. It provides students with a space to be relaxed in a safe environment. Mentors and mentees meet outside of the classroom where students can express their problems, triumphs and talk about what's happening with them througout the year. Providing students with this scheduled time away from their academics helps to keep them focused in class and alleviates behavior issues. Each student has an advocate by their side which flourishes into an amazing relationship.
Our Clubs complement the AMS II academic experience. We have before and after school activities spanning a myriad of interests. From gaming club to dance club, GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) club to weight room training. We at AMS II acknowledge our student body's interests and try to reach everyone's passions
AMS II Athletics aims to expose our student athlete's talents, provide academic support through eligibility requirements, and build positive relationships amongst peers and adults within the school community. Students can tryout for all campus sports teams that are offered including basketball, soccer, baseball, softball, volleyball, and track. We are proud participants of the Charter School Athletic Association and the Public School Athletic League (PSAL).
AMS II student voices are heard! Student government representatives are the voice of their classmates.
The student government is currently working on organizing events such as the spring fling, spirit week, fundraisers, field trips, and a multicultural fashion show.
“Love your school and they’ll love you and stand in your corner”. I am often approached by other students who ask “Why I love the school so much or why I’m always helping out after hours”? Everyone that interacts with students from AMS II has a story or words of wisdom to share. Plenty have grown up in the same areas with similar circumstances. That’s what's special about AMS II, anyone could put themselves in your shoes. Don’t be afraid to make yourself known, help out, and attend fairs. You can never replace people who impact your life. I thank every staff member that has taught me new things. You've helped me better myself and others each and every time I was feeling emotional and put a smile on my face. AMS II was the best 4 years of my life and I will always hold a special place for you guys in my heart.
