• Special Education happen differently at AIHS. We accel in meeting students' educational needs within our regular education classes. Students have smaller classes and greater access to individual supports. The intimate environment and focus on relationship building betweenr staff and students improves our understanding of student needs. As AIHS is part of the Amesbury Public Schools district our special education department is overseen by Director of Student Services, Mary Houde. Parents having questions on concerns about Special Education at AIHS should contact Mike Hildt or Evan Melanson by phone or email.
