Welcome to A.F. Ames Elementary School.

At A.F. Ames Elementary School, we are committed to creating an environment that focuses on the unique needs of each individual student. By developing programs that foster academic excellence, personal responsibility, respect for others, and school pride, we provide our students with the resources they need to reach their highest potential.

We are building on a strong tradition of academic excellence through innovative programs, and a dedication to helping our students thrive and learn in a positive and safe environment. We are determined to continue to succeed by inspiring excellence in every child every day, and nurturing our children to be lifelong learners.

We believe that if given the proper tools and support, all children have the capacity to learn and grow. We also believe that educating our children is a responsibility that should be shared by the partnership of parents, educators, and community.

If you have questions or comments regarding your child’s education, please do not hesitate to email me, call the school office, or schedule an appointment to come in and see me. My door is always open to you, and I welcome your input.
