Who We Are

We are a high performing school with an average graduation rate of 96% that firmly practices the values of holistic support for all students and not limited to, college access and readiness for all with persistent socio-emotional support. We strive to ensure that all students will dare to dream and make that dream their goal while they are with us. Our STEAM based programs are a combination of various arts, computer science, biological sciences and several Advanced Placement courses in Humanities, Math and Science. Our daily advisory program is a small group mentoring program with the same adult which allows scholars to experience community and personal development while experiencing success at AMS III. We are proud of our commitment to diversity both among staff and students, our growing social justice and restorative justice practices while students demonstrate learning through project based learning experiences and internships. Our high graduation rates, college readiness rates, range of course-offerings, high retention rates of students and college acceptance rates make us a competitive choice in south Brooklyn and NYC.
