• Our Purpose
    The Sixth Grade Center (SGC) at AMS is a dedicated "school within a school" that allows a year of transistion for students leaving elementary as they transition to middle school. We understand that middle grades education is a time of important formation, transition and preparation. It is a pivotal point in student education and development. To prepare and equip our students for success, the Sixth Grade Center focuses on this important year of development. We believe that having all the sixth graders together in a dedicated area of the building provides our teachers and staff the opportunity to help students transition to middle school with greater confidence and success.
