Academic Magnet High School
Our school is a county-wide magnet focused on scholastic rigor and excellence. The mission is to challenge each student, teacher, and parent with high academic expectations. Centrally-located and serving approximately 600 students, AMHS provides a close-knit learning environment that prepares young adults for college and develops self-esteem.
AMHS students are encouraged to be citizens of the world, cultivate a respect for cultural diversity, and acquire a sense of global responsibility.
All courses are taught at the honors or Advanced Placement level, offering students an unmatched opportunity to earn college credit and to earn a grade point average greater than 4.0 on a 4.0 scale.
AMHS students are required to conduct a year-long independent research project in the field of the student’s choice with the guidance and direction of the faculty and a mentor. Students have been published in academic and professional journals in such fields as psychology, chemistry, and epidemiology.
