Ames Builds Character…
Here at AMES we know our A, B, C’s! The faculty at Ames is deeply committed to its Character Education program, and our goal is to make positive, proactive decisions second nature to our students. Respect, Responsibility, and Kindness are character traits that we focus on in our building. We are committed to cultivate students' self-respect and raise students' level of responsibility. To accomplish this we continually create and sponsor new programs and activities that will help raise the level of integrity, involvement, and spirit among our students.
