This school is an exciting place to learn for any child. The teachers and administration are very open and work with parents easily. They seem to be very knowledgeable about the subjects they are teaching and loving towards the children. Many new and exciting projects seem to be happening at this school.

AES has great teachers! I have been very satisfied with the quality of education my child receives. The size of the school is overwhelming, but the students seem to adapt. I would recommend this school system to someone moving to the area.

I have a child that attended this school. I was very disappointed in almost every aspect of this school. The teachers with whom I had contact were not, in my opinion, qualified to teach. My complaints to the principal and counselor were ignored, much to the detriment of my child. The principal of the school was especially disappointing in that she could not provide me with the school's national ranking, average test scores, etc.; all of which a principal should be interested in and know. I got the distinct impression that 'politics' was her main interest. For the sake of future students, I hope these shortcomings can be remedied.

I have a 3rd grader at AES. The education, the teachers, and safety at AES is comparable to no other. I am very pleased and would recommend AES to anyone moving to this area.
