Kim Frock, Administrative Head of School

I believe that ALL children deserve an opportunity to experience success as a learner and to receive an education that enables them to realize their potential. At an individual level, education provides the foundation necessary to become a healthy, productive member of society. At a societal level, education is the only possible cure for our most significant problems: poverty, hunger, intolerance. ALL of our children need a path to success, and as adults, it is our responsibility to help them find it. Why ASMS? Our students enter as children and leave as young adults. What could be more exciting than watching and participating in the tremendous growth and maturation of our children as learners and community members? Our students, faculty members, and parents teach me something every day, they make me laugh, and they bring me great joy.  No other professional experience could be better than that!

Linda Cole, Academic Head of School

Having access to a good education changed my life. It allowed me to imagine possibilities for myself that were unimaginable for my parents. It allowed me to create and follow my own path while, at the same time, appreciating the wisdom of those who had gone before. It allowed me to look at this majestic world with a sense of awe and to understand that it is the collection of individual acts of kindness and courage that make it beautiful. These are gifts education gave me. They are the gifts I choose to share. That's why I'm a teacher.

Erin Perry, Director of Student Services

The middle school years are an exciting time of change in an individual's life. While from an outsider's perspective it may seem to be a time of struggle and conflict, it is also a time where an individual may begin to develop into an analytical thinker who is a respectful, responsible, and independent learner. I am in education to help students, families, and educators create an environment that is conducive to academic, ethical, and moral development. By offering support and guidance, I hope to help each student identify and develop their strengths and find their own paths to success.

Kristina Woodcock, Receptionist and Administrative Assistant

One hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like, but the world may be a better place because I was important in the life of a child.


If I can make a difference in the life of one child, then I have succeeded.

"Learning is not attained by chance. It must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence." - Abigail Adams


It gives me such joy to watch the enthusiasm and energy students put into everything they do. Their intensity for learning about the world around them is amazing to see. It is a privilege to be witness to the process and share in their growth.

Like Monty Python, "I don't believe libraries should be drab places where people sit in silence." I want all the students at ASMS to realize that they are the ultimate search engine!

Michelle Corliss, Data and Technology Director

After having two children of my own, I learned that children learn in distinctly different ways.  I enjoy the challenge of learning the different ways and developing the tools and techniques necessary to reach each child.
