ASMS enrolls 275 students each year and was ranked by Newsweek magazine as a top 10 public high school in Alabama and as a top high school in the nation.  Since 1993, ASMS has graduated more than 1,600 students, more than 400 of whom have earned post-graduate degrees.  Admission requirements are evaluated in three areas: academic achievement, maturity, and leadership in school community and religious organizations.
