This is a school for kids who are being punished within the Marana School District. Any kid referred here has already been singled out by their high school's administrators who have probably already called ahead to "warn" ACE about the student, so they really can't get a fair shot. The staff treats the kids like criminals, so that's how the kids act and that's how they end up feeling about themselves. There are several free charter schools or online schools in the area where kids are treated with respect that are much better choices. A.C.E. staff treats kids like the expect them to fail, so they often end up doing just that. Don't ever send your kid here, go with a charter school and put all the drama and administration incompetence behind you!
