This school was a better school before they placed the current principal. The former principal is who made that campus what it had become. The clientele has changed the school is over saturated with kids in classrooms and poor administrative communication. The school had changed management over the past 6 months. A large group of teachers are un happy. What happens to the kids ? They are going to loose higher educated and dedicated educators. Placing less qualified teachers in the classroom.
My son attends this school. We are looking for an alternative.
High AIMS scores - the best in the West Valley. And considering this was the first year for AzMerit, those scores reported by the Arizona Republic for AAEC Estrella Mountain, were pretty outstanding as well! I have already pre-enrolled my 7th grader to attend Estrella Mountain as well!
Our daughter is in her freshman year AAEC and it has been an exceptional! The whole staff is welcoming and helpful! Ms. Spicer goes above and beyond in recognizing and growing her students talents! Dr. Ramirez leads a phenomenal school! Thank you to the whole AAEC staff!
I have had two kids attend this school and they have been very involved in the after school activities and have enjoyed their time there. I especially like the opportunity to obtain college credits. Both kids will graduate from high school just a few credits short of a college AA degree!
This school is awesome! The teachers are engaged with the students and help them succeed. The office staff is wonderful, they are always willing to go above and beyond to make sure my questions are answered. Dr Ramirez is a busy Principal, however she is makes time to talk to all the students and parents. Thank you AAEC staff for making my son's high school experience amazing!!!!
This week was the American Quarter Horse Association Novice Championships. A student from AAEC Estrella Mountain competed against a hundred horses and riders from across the country and she won! She is a World Champion! Her parents believe that the flexibility offered by the school helped in her quest for the world championship title.

I am a Freshmen at AAEC and I have to say this school is amazing. The teachers push you and help you see your full potential. They don't go easy on you because they know you can do it and want you to be the best you can be. Be prepared to put in a lot of hard work and time. The school also has several clubs you can join and tutoring after school to get help on whatever you need. They want to see you succeed and will do whatever they can to help you get there. I highly recommend going to AAEC!
