Phoenix, AZ, USA -- For 16 years, the dedicated team at the Academies of Math and Science (http://www.amscharters.org) has accomplished much from being recognized as the 2016 Arizona Charter School of the Year, to receiving the National Blue Ribbon award, to being the #1 and #2 rated K-8 schools in the area by 5-star GreatSchools parent reviews. This fall the fifth AMS campus, Academy of Math and Science Desert Sky, will open at McDowell & 59th Ave.
AMS Desert Sky will hold a New Student Registration event in partnership with the radio station 103.5 LA TRICOLOR on Saturday, December 16th, 2017 at 5757 W McDowell Rd.
