Newsweek Magazine has ranked the Alabama School of Mathematics and Science as the third best high school in Alabama. This is the best ranking that ASMS has earned in the seven years that the school has participated in the survey.
“Although ASMS does not particularly line up with the criteria that Newsweek considers important, namely International Baccalaureate and AP testing programs, we are nonetheless pleased to be recognized as one of the top schools in the state,” said ASMS President Dr. Larry Turner. “We are confident that we do a good job here and it’s always good when others recognize this fact.”

Senior Connor Minton directed and produced a winning video for a contest sponsored by Mobile District Attorney Ashley Rich’s Office. The video uses a Matt Kennon country music song called “You had to pick on me,” which deals with school bullying. Because Minton won, performed a concert at ASMS on May 8 in the school’s auditorium. In total, six schools in the Mobile area will receive a concert.
