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 9th grade applicants. This gives any interested student an equal chance at acceptance. The application is opened at the beginning of January and remains open until mid February every year. The lottery is conducted at the end of February and accepted students are notified within a few weeks of the lottery. Upperclassmen applicants are notified in the summer and will be asked to meet with school officials before acceptance.
