Are you dedicated to influencing positive changes in at-risk communities by preparing students for college and a successful life and career? Academies of Math and Science (AMS) is an academically advanced charter school network serving predominantly low-income students, with a decade-long track record of being either the highest or one of the highest performing K-8 charter schools in Arizona.

That's where you come in.

  • Comprehensive training, follow-up coaching, PD, and professional learning communities
  • Extensive opportunities for career mobility/advancement as our schools and network continue to grow and expand to new areas
  • The chance to truly make a difference in the lives of children who may not otherwise have access to a high-quality education In the words of one of our employees, "[AMS has] incredible curriculum and standards that help students succeed. Administration appreciates staff and they express it throughout the school year, and there are a lot of opportunities for growth within the company. Everyone is always looking for ways to be better for our students! I am proud to work in an encouraging environment that is so uplifting and positive. I can't say enough great things about AMS."
