Welcome to 

Atascadero Middle School


Schools to Watch.webp


In January 2020, AMS was only one of ten middle schools in all of California designated as a School to Watch?  Read a little about the criteria to which we are aligned.

7th Graders: The YEARBOOK and LEADERSHIP application is now open!  It closes on May 13th, so be sure to apply now! 

7th Graders: The W.E.B. application is now open!  Be sure to apply by May 14th! 

The AMS Choir recently recorded  a beautiful rendition of "Somewhere Only We Know" by the 90s British band Keane.  This is around half of the group and they are singing outside! What a wonderful job!

Grief and loss are universal human experiences. Our current reality has made this extremely clear and for many, has led to an increase in the intensity or amount of grief and loss experienced. This video created by the Atascadero High School Wellness Center staff hopes to answer questions and be a source of support. Your school counselors and the Wellness Center staff are here to support you.
