Our Application Process FAQ...

As a public charter school, AMES aligns with the state and federal policies that determine our operation. This includes conducting a blind lottery for all eligible applicants giving any interested student an equal chance at acceptance. All a student must do is submit the application by the deadline to be considered for enrollment at AMES.
2. When will the 2014-2015 application be available and when is the deadline to submit?
The application for next school year will be available on our website on January 6th, 2014 and must be submitted by February 13th, 2014.
3. Who should apply?
Students who are active learners, motivated, persistent, creative, collaborative, innovative, eager to reach out to others, and willing to AIM for a new future. GPA and other traditional criteria are not required.
AMES received a donation of hand and power tools in May. This donation will support both the Robotics FIRST program as well as the electric car club. We very much appreciate and can make use of this donation.
AMES has received a donation for our FIRST Robotics Club. This will be a matching donation. For every New dollar donated to The Robotics program a matching dollar will be released up to $3,000. This is a great opportunity to support the AMES First Robotics program. Checks can be made out to the school, which is a non profit agency making the donations tax deductible.
We are also looking for a donation of a used/new covered trailer to support the Robotics program. The trailer would be used to provide support for the team at competitions, to allow the robot to be transported for practice sessions and build sessions, and as a storage facility for tools and spare parts. We also have allocated space here at AMES for the building of the Robotics vehicle and our electric car. We appreciate the ongoing support and any donation will be appreciated.
