The Alternative School for Math & Science


Innovative teaching. Student-centered learning.

Middle School Grades 6-8

For the first time in three years, we have begun a school year with an opening that marks our new normal.  We are back to facilitating all-school events such as assemblies, band, and field trips. The school is filled with the feeling of joy and optimism for the year ahead. Last week, we kicked off the year with our first community service morning and an afternoon full of events that support a positive school culture. Students worked with their advisory groups to document checkpoints around campus. ASMS was roaring with laughter and joy at the close of our opening weeks. Additionally, there are many new faces and familiar faces in new roles for the 2022-2023 academic year. Please join us in congratulating our new and veteran faculty on their new positions.
