Why AIM?

Learning about AIM first-hand from our students, parents, alumni and faculty is the best way we know to explain how AIM's evidence-based curriculum and creative community unleashes opportunities for our students.

We tapped the creative talents of two recent alumni, Kyle Petras and Ross Schonberg '17, to produce these video interviews.
