Our Philosophy
Based on a God-centered view of truth as presented in the Bible, the integrating center for all of AMES' educational experiences is found in the person of Jesus Christ. The curriculum challenges the student to use every talent vigorously to honor God and contribute to society. Core academic areas require content accountability and focus on the leadership abilites of clear and effective oral and writtin communication; sound reasoning skills, numerical reasoning, computational ability, and clear decision-making. We prepare students to meet life's intellectual and philosophical challenges with a well-reasoned faith.
