Located in Burnsville, North Carolina, The Arthur Morgan School (AMS) is a private, alternative, day and boarding school for middle school students in Grades 7, 8 and 9. AMS provides a safe and loving environment where our students learn to question and evaluate, think creatively and work cooperatively. A low student/teacher ratio ensures individualized instruction and guidance. Students and staff honor the Quaker values of simplicity, responsibility, service, personal integrity, nonviolent conflict resolution and respect for self, others and the environment.
Our curriculum standards meet the North Carolina Guidelines for Independent Schools. All students attend math and language arts classes. Students also engage in in-depth, integrated studies where they gain knowledge that more traditional schools offer in social studies, history and science classes.
Our experience over the years has been that AMS students graduate fully prepared to enter a traditional high school. Moreover, as numerous alumni have confirmed, they continue to be self-motivated learners after leaving AMS.
