AMHS Weekly Update

October 11, 2021 - October 15, 2021

9-Week Progress Reports Available Friday, October 15th

The 9-week progress report will be available to students and parents via the Infinite Campus portal on Friday, October 15th. Please discuss and review students’ grades and contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions regarding their progress in a course. As a reminder, our Career Pathway students are expected to maintain a 2.5 GPA and our Magnet Students are expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA to remain in good academic standing at AMHS. I encourage students to calculate their GPA throughout the semester to ensure they meet all academic requirements.

Student Success Academy

Greetings Ram Scholars,


Our school district has formed a partnership with the Students Success Academy. This virtual mentoring program provides students with their own success agent. The paired agent will assist your student with goal setting, academic support, career guidance, and adulting.


Registration is simple and there is no cost to parents or students. Please review the attached brochure for more information or contact your child's counselor for more information.
