At Arizona Middle School we are a caring community that emphasizes support for all of our students. Our Apache community works together to create a learning environment that has high expectations, promotes students' academic and social development, teaches responsibility and pride, and supports our students in developing their abilities to be lifelong learners.
AMS is distinguished by a legacy of greatness. Throughout the school’s existence we have been recognized as a California Distinguished School by the California Department of Education; an award earned based on the academic achievement of our students and effective instructional practices that support student learning. In addition, AMS has received certification as an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) National Demonstration School, for five consecutive years. We are committed to assuring that every student is prepared with a world-class education that will support lifelong success. Beyond our core academic program of English, Math, Science, History, and Physical Education we support lifelong success through courses in AVID, Robotics/3D Graphic Design, Cadet Corps, Band, Choir, and College and Career Ready Labs. Similarly, our co-curricular programs (ASB, clubs, and Prime-Time/Extended Learning) provide students with challenging activities where each child can reach her/his fullest potential.
