I have a beautiful first grader that attends this school. I'm pleased to say my child as grown so much socially and academically. She loves the teachers and the support staff. She is learning keyboarding skills, and vocabulary. Her reading ability improves weekly. I love having my child in this supportive environment.
I have the great pleasure of working at Amerischools Camelback Campus as their interim principal. I have been a elementary school principal for 19 years at various campuses in the Phoenix area. These students are tremendous. They love to learn, they are respectful and they value their teachers expertise. What more can you ask for.
I have three grandchildren who attend AmeriSchools Academy. One of my granddaughters has been going there since she was 5 years old, and she's 13 now. She does really great there and has made the National Junior Honor Society for the last three years. She's active in volleyball, bicycle club, and many other extra curricular activities that they offer. The school has done an amazing job of connecting children to something larger than themselves. My grandchildren are always excited about the next day at school and what new adventure may be in store for them.
Amerischools is an amazing school with staff that truly cares for the individual success of every child. Our family has truly been blessed with the teachers and staff there at AmeriSchools. All of our children find themselves not only exceeding academically, but enriched beyond measure with a positive peer culture that has been nurtured by this phenomenal group of teachers. Their philosophies on student engagement and community learning have truly helped to inspire my children along with others to become star students. Teaching to the whole child is not only a motto they live by, but evident in the success of my children.
My Son is yet to start this school.So not sure about the Environment or culture yet, however the best part about this school is that they have an early exception criteria (which most of the schools don't have in Phoenix region) and my son born in September got an admission. I am very thankful to them for saving my Kids precious one year of education.
I love this school and both of my children are doing well. This will be their third year attending Amerischools
AmeriSchools offers individualized attention to all its students. I appreciate the small class sizes and the communication between staff to parents. Their open door policy is wonderful because if I ever have any concerns about my daughter her teacher is always available to address any concerns we may have about our child.
We were looking for a charter school that gave personal attention to our child. With only 18 children in the classroom, individual attention was still not possible. The class went through 3 teachers in one year, one of which was not a certified elementary teacher, which I know is permissible, but she was unprepared for the classroom. I was also disappointed in the level of art education, the emphasis on discipline instead of learning, and the lack of creativity on behalf of the teachers. Classrooms need to have order, but when the only thing my child reported to me about the day was the new "rule" to follow or that now my child was partnered and the partners were responsible for keeping each other in line, its too bad. Needless to say, my child will not be returning for another year. THe principal was new the year my child attended and her lack of connection with the parents and with keeping us informed was sad. With such a small school, my hopes for creativity, meeting needs of the individual student, and great communication with parents was my expectation. Amerischool did not meet my expectations.
This school was great for my older son who loves to read and is very academic. He had a great (1st year teacher) Mrs. Salle. She loved the kids and loved the class. But for my son who still gets up and moves around and can only concentrate when he is moving, he had a hard time. Over 90% of the year he came home with red for "Being out of his seat" "Calling out answers". For a boy that is full of life these traits are hard to learn. We worked with him at home, had an IEP done (that came back normal) and still with everyone involved they were unable to keep him in his room and learning. They would move him from class to class and sometimes put him in a small room right behind the administrators. I would only go back a second year because Mrs. Salle will be the teacher for my little one. Also the dean of students was very helpful, though in the end he could not help in this situation either.
I would recommend Amerischools Academy - Camelback to other parents. School has friendly and knowledgeable teachers staff, they are interested in involving parents into educational process. Children get individual attention and a good level of education
My son attended 2 years here, grade 4-5. I have witnessed many improvements implemented. We got new principal, multiple after school activities. My son attended Montessori school before transferring here and I was glad how the transition happened. I value very much that this is a small school, with personal attention to all kids. In my opinion the teachers at Americhool make this place very unique. It's a group of people working together well, sharing with kids hobbies, experience.
We were looking for a school that could handle my grandson's exceptional math and science abilities, bring his reading up to snuff and deal with his mild ADD. This school did just that. Wonderful school I highly recommend.
AmeriSchools Academy is a charter on 15th Avenue and Camelback. With 200 students it allows us to express ourselves. It is a creative community that shows us different ways to show your feelings. Something unique about this school is that they follow the FISH! Philosophy. This is program to stay positive. There is Play, Make Their Day, Be There, and Choose Your Attitude. In other words, Have Fun, Be Nice, Pay Attention, and Be Happy.
It takes a village to raise a child, Amerischools is a village that works together for the child, family and staff. I am proud to be a part of the village. The school offers small classes and a super supportive staff.
This school is so open to new ideas! It is one of the last schools around that do not teach to the test, we believe that teaching the whole child is what is important. Small classes does make a difference when trying to help struggling students. The Staff is caring and always look out for each others students, this shows the students that we work as a team and we all expect the same things! As a first year teacher here I have been able to explore so many options for teaching my students, using fun ways to teach unlike the scripted methods used in other schools. We work hard, and we have high expectations but we do it all in a fun happy environment! If you are looking for a school that will keep your child safe and teach him/her how to think and make decisions rather than how to take a test than this is the school for you! I am so happy that I found AmeriSchools.
This school is amazing. After working several years in a large public school district, I am so proud and thankful to now be working for the Amerischools family. The smaller class sizes means I can truly individual instruction and met the needs of EVERY child. The classrooms are huge and offer tons of natural lighting making for a superb learning environment. The children are amazing as well. The students are respectful, responsible and active in sports and their academics. I love that the school believes in inquiry, project-based learning. Something that is nearly unheard of in the larger, over-crowded public school classrooms. Students are truly engaged, challenged and balanced. GO AMERISCHOOLS!
The administration supports excellent teaching by providing guidance and leadership. Teachers are top-notch! Students are very friendly and active. It's a great place to go to school and a great place to teach.
Great school and staff. Everyone there cares deeply about the kids. Challenging classes and lots of teacher particapation.
My son attended this school K-8 and I have nothing but good things to say about the staff and the school in general.The teachers spend an incredible amount of their personal time participating in school activities. The work is challenging and the student behaviour is well above average. The kids that go here are very respectful and that is a testimonial to the staff. I'd like to thank the school for giving my child a great learning experience.
My daughter attended this school from kindergarten all the way through 8th grade. I credit her success, she is an honors student, to the teachers and principal of this amazing school. Keep up the good work!
