  • I am a former student at A.R.M.S. I had good and bad times but there was never a doubt that we were always a family! We always had our group of friends that helped us through the bad times. The teachers are very caring and when they have a problem they fix it with composure. The principal Stephen Gay was truly amazing he works very well with the students and he knows how to run a school. A.R.M.S. filled me with experiences that I could have never gotten if i had gone anywhere else. These experiences gave me memories that I will never forget. The friends I made here will go with me throughout highschool and I will never forget my good times at this school. I highly recomend this school to anyone who wants to have a phanomenal and truly amazing experience!

  • I went to A.R.M.S. all through middle school, and all I can say is that it was the best school that I could've gone to. All the hands on activities, and all the great learning helped me greatly when I entered high school. Though it had some flaws with teachers and some student, I would'nt have wanted to go to any other school and highly reccomend sending your child there.

  • The small size of the school is a positive and a negative. Fewer students is always a good thing. But it is very cliquish, not only with students but with staff. Disciplinary action does not seem consistent (it's based on your clique). Who's who matters here. There are a couple good teachers and several not so good. Our end-of-year math scores declined, however, during the year scores from class work did not reveal any difficulty. This seemed inconsistent, questionable.

  • This school is AMAZING. I am in the 8th grade right now and must say that these past few years have been a blast. I am very sad to have to say goodbye to all the great people I met here at ARMS, though I know it is the inevitable. Right now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my family is still here long enough, so as my two smaller siblings may also get to have the wonderful experience that I have had. The teachers are practically miracle workers, and the field trips are stunning. At ARMS you are definitely treated like a person, no doubt about it. I love it here, and would choose no other place to go.

  • I am a recent student at A.R.M.S. The teachers are all great at ARMS. I have already had a great time even though i have only started as a sixth grader. The camp hanes field trip was really fun and i had a great and wonderful time. I personally want to thank Ms. Amerson for putting this all together so we could have a great time. This is all I have to say and hope to have a wonderful year at ARMS.
