What parents think of AMS South Mountain

Real reviews. Real results.


“Any parent that cares about their child's education should enroll them in academy of math and science. I have had 5 children there for over 8 years and the education is beyond my expectation. AMS will help any student with extra tutoring to get your student up to expectation with their standards. This school offers the best in education.

I am proud to be a parent of 5 outstanding students attending this school!”



“My girls and I love the Academy of Math and Science. They've both been there since kindergarten and are now fifth and sixth graders. We are very happy with the curriculum and how far ahead they are academically than if they were in a regular public school. I have no doubt that when they finish the eighth grade they will be more than ready for high school. My grandson started kindergarten there this year and will be continuing with AMS as well.”


Kristina Buffalo


“The school is great. Children are doing the next years curriculum. In 2nd grade, my son is doing multiplication. They also have a wonderful booster club that helps parents get involved in the school. They teach piano or guitar to the students too!”



“The Academy of Math & Science has been such a blessing for my son and myself. The teachers and staff have treated my 'special needs' boy with respect, as well as the firmness he needs. They have been responsive & professional in every way. The office staff & administrators are the very best!! I was not surprised at all when AMS was named #1, but rather was pleased that the state recognized what was obvious to me. ”


Nancy Fralick


“The staff is incredibly caring about all the students. They make sure that they take the time to talk to you about any concerns surrounding your child. The teachers are energetic and work with you to keep you updated as to how your child is doing. The smaller class sizes are great.”




“My Daughter has attended AMS since 5th grade, I cant Praise your Staff and Teachers Enough, you have helped train her for her future through Tutoring, and the Classroom work group activities. She studies hard every night dedicated to be all that she can be.

Thank you all so much!”



“Great school and great teachers. Soon both my daughters will be attending. We are so happy to have our kiddos here. Keep up the great work Academy of Math and Science! ”

Well-rounded curriculum for your child.

In the 2015-2016 school year, AMS Prince students passed the AzMERIT statewide assessment at nearly double the rate of other schools in Arizona. In March 2016, AMS Prince and MASSA were recognized by the Education Equality Index as two of 10 schools in Tucson closing the achievement gap.
As a network, AMS by some measures is one of the highest performing networks in the state. Our campuses outperform most or all schools in their respective neighborhoods and the AMS district as a whole has outperformed local schools by an average of over 20% in math, language arts, and science since 2010. In 2008, AMS Prince was one of only sixteen public charter schools nationwide honored by the United States Department of Education “No Child Left Behind – Blue Ribbon Schools” program, which recognizes schools that make significant progress in closing the achievement gap.
