Middlesex Savings Bank Donates $25,000 to AMSA to Improve Equity in Access to Science and Technology for Diverse Student Population

September 27, 2023
Middlesex Savings Bank announced a corporate gift of $25,000 to the Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School (AMSA). The support will allow the school to improve equity in access to science and technology for our diverse student population by investing in educational facilities that are learning laboratories. 

AMSA is a public middle and high school dedicated to inspiring students to become future leaders who will make a difference in traditional and emerging industries and companies. The school is undertaking a capital campaign to raise funds to construct a new building to expand classroom space, allowing more flexible scheduling and improved learning opportunities with state-of-the-art classroom technology. 

The building project will put more 21st century science and technology into our students’ hands in earlier grades. Specific improvements include: increasing science research space; modernizing classroom technology; expanding chemistry, biology, and physics labs; adding new benches and tables to labs; and improving safety features in all rooms and buildings. 

“Receiving this gift from Middlesex Savings Bank is more than a financial contribution to our capital campaign, it is a commitment to being right there with AMSA as we seek to provide the highest quality education to our students who come from all backgrounds and abilities,” said AMSA Executive Director, Dr. Lisa Mobley. “We are proud that year after year, our students demonstrate their excellence in all subjects, but especially math and science. AMSA is building the future of our high-tech world one student at a time!”

AMSA is a seven year, comprehensive public school, educating students in grades 6-12. AMSA opened its doors in 2005 and is located in Marlborough. AMSA's goal is to bring quality education, typically available only at exclusive private or exam schools, to an all-inclusive public school setting. Admittance to AMSA is based on a space-availability lottery conducted annually in late winter.
