Antilles Middle School
Antilles Middle School (AMS) is committed to providing an education that prepares students as thinkers, problem solvers and collaborators. AMS provides an English-language education for the dependents of military and civilian federal employees in Puerto Rico (PR). AMS is one of four Department of Defense schools on the island. We are a member of the Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS) Area and the New York/Virginia/Puerto Rico School District. AMS is located on the United States Army Garrison, Fort Buchanan and is situated within the metropolitan area of San Juan.
The middle school moved to the present 17-acre campus in 1992. The school consists of nine permanent buildings and two portable buildings providing more than 78,000 square feet. The buildings are configured in a circular pattern around the information center. The school embraces the middle school concept for grades 6-8. There are six "houses"/teams. Four are grade-level houses and there is a house for the core exploratory strand and a house for foreign language. Teachers and students are organized and grouped in interdisciplinary teams.
