The AMS network, serving 2600 K-8 students (and 3400 for the 2018-2019 school year) across 4 (soon to be 5) campuses in Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona, solely targets under-served communities to provide an advanced, college-preparatory education. The charter school network is one of the highest performing in Arizona. AMS is national award-winning, and its flagship campus has been the highest performing Title I K-8 charter schools with >70% F/R in the state of Arizona (out of 293 such schools).
WHY WORK AT AMS:
• Great colleagues. We only hire the most motivated, intelligent, mission-oriented team players we can find.
• Career mobility including potential for promotion to higher levels of school or network management/leadership. Teachers also have the opportunity to become master teachers and continue to progress in responsibility and compensation. As we grow by roughly 30% each year we will continue to hire additional network office employees to meet the needs of our growth, and several new school leaders each year including instructional coaches, assistant principals, and principals.
• A supportive and positive leadership
• For teachers, comprehensive new teacher induction and regular follow-up coaching and professional development
MISSION AND VISION:
Through a well-rounded education, we transform today’s scholars into tomorrow’s global visionaries.
COMMITMENT TO GROWTH AND CAREER TRACKS:
AMS has grown by 1600 students in the last 4 years. For the 2018-2019 school year, AMS will serve 3400 students. In the next 3-5 years, we will expand by another 3000 students and 50 additional teachers per year. These trends of growth lead us to constantly expand and open new campuses as we strive to meet the needs of at-risk Arizona communities
We believe that smart students are well-rounded. Although we do well in state exams, we also offer students STEM, technology, foreign languages including Russian and Mandarin, music (piano, guitar, choir, and theory), art, and character development.
We use the best methods, systems, and programs available to us at any time to reach our mission of sending kids to college. Our major assumptions are that no matter what difficulties students face in their homes, their achievement largely depends on us and that no kids are too different or too tough to teach. Students' geographies are not their destinies. All students with the desire for a better life can acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for success in college. Our program is built to transition motivated students in grades K-8 from a teacher to a student directed education, providing them the skills to succeed in extremely competitive high school programs and ultimately, college. – less
