AMS is a student-centered middle school with an emphasis on academic achievement and social learning for all students. At Angevine, we feel that addressing the needs of the whole child by including creative and enriching experiences is essential to a comprehensive curriculum. All of our students are taught in grade level teams supported by content area teachers who collaborate to provide an integrated approach to delivering standards-based curriculum. Each grade level is supported by an administrator and a counselor who get to know the students and their families quite well over a three year period. We have a seven period schedule, and students attend a grade level lunch.
On Wednesdays, Angevine runs a Late Start Wednesday. Students attend all seven periods on a shortened schedule. Teachers engage in data-driven dialogue about best practice using data from frequent common formative and summative assessments. Students are welcome to attend before school programming on Late Start Wednesdays, or they may come to school at 9:45 a.m.
At Angevine we are committed to relationships, which are fundamental in supporting students during these transitional development years. Angevine is unique in that we offer a pre-engineering program, which feeds into the Centaurus High School engineering track, an award winning visual and musical arts program, and new technology built into every classroom in order to foster the success of the 21st century learner.
In addition, we have an extensive bullying prevention/positive behavior support program and many active student groups such as Student Council, Robotics Club, Art Club, Chess Club, and Fitness Club. Our School Improvement Team is made up of administrators, teachers, and community members who are all invested stakeholders in our children’s future.
