Many students come to us performing 2 years below grade level and quickly achieve above grade level mastery at AMS. We are looking for experienced administration as well as teachers with excellent classroom results, leadership experience, and a high level of motivation and mission alignment. As we open new schools and continue to grow by roughly 30% each year, we seek data-driven staff who are determined to uphold the academic excellence which made our flagship school in Tucson the 2016 Arizona Charter School of the Year. Our teachers use an advanced curriculum that has allowed our Title 1 scholars a level of academic achievement they may not have access to elsewhere. Our educators work in predominantly low-income areas of Arizona, where they may face the challenges of teaching students with a variety of educational needs. What our parents have to say about AMS: “I am so happy that I found a school that will develop my children's character as well as their academics. I have children in the elementary and middle school, and both love the school and have excelled since attending.” “They have high expectations for their students that encourages a higher level of thinking and pushes the sense of community in the school.
