We moved to the area from out of state and were very surprised by the number of schools to choose from, not just the one we were zoned for. We are so impressed by the level of teacher and parent involvement, the regular incorporation of the Covey 7 Habits, and many fundamental elementary requirements that we had, that we know we made the best choice in sending our children to ALA.

To the parent stating that ALA Mesa only got a "C" in state rating is wrong. The report for 2012 came out yesterday and all of the ALA elementary received a "A" Grading. Do some research before reporting something that is not true.

They are very unorganized.They don't provide enough facilities for kids. Don't enroll in this school.

How can parents be happy about the ALA Mesa Elementary when they barely got a "C" grade from the State of Arizona... They pulled a terrible stunt midyear by putting together the two fifth grade classes. They are elevating the PE teacher to one of the 6th grade teachers with no experience whatsoever... a disaster on the rise.

My daughter attended half day Kinder at ALA Mesa, We are very pleased with the knowledge she received at this school. The Franklin Covey 7 habits were a big reason why we chose the school. Even with Half day she learned a lot and she was always challenged. Her half day teacher was great I highly recommend Miss Pope.

My children have attended ALA since my oldest started kindergarten- attending the Gilbert campus until Mesa opened in 2012. We have been nothing but pleased with the education they receive. They are learning things that are easily a year or 2 ahead of what we consider grade level but most importantly they are learning skills and habits that make them productive and respective leaders amongst their peers. The principal is very friendly and involved closely with parents. Volunteering is mandatory when you have students enrolled, which I believe causes parents to be more involved in their child's education and in turn helps the child do even better. We really appreciate that our children attend specials, especially music- which we believe to be incredibly important in schooling. If you want a laid back, non-strict, typical schooling experience, ALA is likely not the school for your child.

We have 2 Children that attended ALA Mesa Campus this past year . I can't tell you how happy we are at this school. The curriculum, the teachers and staff are beyond amazing! The 7 Habits is so wonderful and has taught my children so much. ALA does teach at a higher level than most schools in the area, and they are attentive to your child's individual needs. If your child is excelling, they will move them so they are learning where their level is. You are required to volunteer a certain amount of hours per family, which I think is great! It gets parents more involved, which is extremely important in a child's learning. We are so happy to have found ALA Mesa and can't wait to return next year!
