I think ACAA, its Administration, and some of its teachers are of the poorest quality in the area. The Principal, Mr, Lalley, yells at his staff in front of parents and students, I see parents constantly harassing teachers, and getting away with it. Since when do parents (who, if THEY wanted to teach, should get a degree....) say what should and should not be taught in a classroom, or demand grade changes because they think they have "pull", Their kids are constantly telling other kids to "just have your mom or dad talk to the principal, you get anything you want..".. it is sad how our society has become so cow-towing to parents.. schools should NOT be run this way.. I am pulling my second child out this year, and bringing her to a public school, where at least I don't have to witness unprofessional standards and "Parent Politics."

I am very disappointed in this school. When my childs teacher tells me what to feed my child then its all over I sent my child with choc chip teddy grahms which have the same nutritional value as yogurt and granola bars and she preceded to tell me because they had chocolate it was not healthy. Schools should be worried about all the children getting physical education every day. This school has no licensed medical staff and no nutritionist like public schools. This school is a dissappointment and high school consistently runs out of hot meals every day because they refuse to stagger lunches. whoever decided to put this school in the middle of a business park was not smart. this school could not even help my child struggling with his math. Very dissappointed

This is one of the grossest and cheapest school I've ever been too. None of the desks are matching and pretty much every is a hand me down. The academics how ever are terrible and lazy and there also times when we don't learn at all. The art classes here are great but Theirs one glass were you don't do anything at all and can pull of a grade somehow. There is also a time when this school fed food poisoning to the elementary students and they tried to cover it up. I swear ... someone should sue this school for almost killing a child! This school also has the worst summer homework that is totally unnecessary because they say "Hey heres a book and well your on that , complete 500 math lessons in 2 months!" "hope you have a great summer!".. Not even exaggerating cause here I am writing this to warning the people That you have to go through this if your at this school.

My personal reflection with YEARS of children attending ACAA Part 4 of 4. My husband and I both graduated from major Universities, and we NEVER had it that strict, or ever had that much homework EVER, not by a long shot. They are losing a LOT of 7-8th grade children in enrollment due to the strict regime of middle school, so be aware of this too. Like the previous parents (posts) have stated, their HS is AMAZING! US News voted one of the best in the country! This is no mistake. However, if you are ONLY looking for a school to send a 7th-8th grader to, I would steer clear until High School. These crazy strict stories about forgetting a pencil, or forgetting to answer a question resulting in a FAIL are all true! But all in all, I would rather a school be a little overly strict than to not know my child and their own personal needs. All in all ACAA is a 4 out of 5 star school in my book. - A long time parent of several children that attend ACAA.

I have to agree with some of the other parents who complain that the grading at this schools is absurd. You get a 0 if you don't complete 1 out of 27 questions??? This has happened more than once at this school. There is also no consistency with the dress code. If the first period teacher doesn't write up a violation and the child doesn't alter his or her dress by the time they get to second period then how can the second period teacher state your child violated the policy??? This lends itself to a child being targeted/harassed by certain teachers. This school also gives entirely too much homework. I have to wonder what they are doing with their class time. The main reason for the one star review is that one teacher in the school is bordering on harassment of my child. My child was bullied by students at her previous school so I placed her in this school to remove her from that environment and now there is a teacher that harasses her. This upsets and disappoints me greatly. Bad enough when kids bully each other, unacceptable when a teacher harasses a child.

I am a current ACAA parent of children that attend the elementary, middle, and high school. I usually do not do these types of things but another ACAA parent shared with me the negative things that other parents are saying about this school. Firstly, I commend the ACAA administration because they do their best to take care of the students. Parents may not always agree but I know through experience the administration takes care of business and has the best interest of the students, teachers, and parents. Secondly, I have witnessed ACAA parents yelling, cussing, and being rude to each other in the front lobby with younger children present. Parents this is unacceptable. Please be professional and take your rude behavior in a place where no other people can hear or see you. Thirdly, I read the most recent posting regarding the administration. My thoughts on that posting are the arts and academics are where they are at through effective management of the administration and teachers. Without a great leader, the school would not be at where it is. I cannot reinterate enough through my experience with ACAA over 4 years, they have best interest for students, teachers and parents.

First off, let me start off by saying that the arts program and the staff that teacher them are stellar!!! I cannot speak highly of the opportunities for growth in the arts here at ACAA. The students gain so much by having specials every day to hone in on their interest - it's great! While this school has a superb arts program, the administration at the elementary school level is lacking. Resolutions to issues either don't come, or take forever to be resolved. Although ACAA is an art school, the academic program is extremely rigorous, so make sure your child is at grade level, especially since it's a 4 day school week (there is tutoring that is available on Fridays). If you're looking for a school that welcomes parent input and parent volunteer opportunities, this is not the school to attend, as they are severely lacking at this school! While the arts classes and the staff that teach them are worthy of a 5, the administration and their unwillingness to accept parental input is why I rated this school 2 stars.

This school simply changed my life. I had been bullied at all my middle school and was enrolled in the high school connected to it, I came home crying every day that I went there until my mom found ACAA. I had gone on a tour shortly after and knew that it was the perfect school for me. I tried everything to get in and was accepted shortly after. I am now a graduated student on my way to college and I can say that every year I spent there was filled with happiness and friends. Although no school is perfect, ACAA came so very close. I had had a few troubling teachers and a few issues with middle schoolers running in the halls and being disrespectful and a few girls that had transferred; but the teachers left and middle schoolers will be middle schoolers...and as for the girls, they became good friends of mine that just had some social issues. ACAA has changed my lie and made me the outgoing person I am today, without it, I would never have gotten over my social fear and would be an extremely different person for the worst.

The elementary school's principal's response to an incorrect schedule spoke volumes. From the lack of introduction or welcome, to lack of engaging, talking to, or looking at our child, to his condescending, unapologetic attitude, it was all negative. Note that the optional ballet class is open 1st to current students & once spots are filled up, too bad, if you're new. This is not mentioned at any time, anywhere I said to him. He didn't respond or apologize. He puts us on a wait list for ballet. Gee, thanks - you couldn't just squeeze us in somewhere? Our child's schedule only had ONE arts class. We had to lose PE to gain a 2nd arts class. The $50 arts fee isn't for your child's supplies, it's to "support the arts program". It's a forced donation. After the dismissive treatment we got, we took our $50 check back. A few hours later I got a message asking why we took it back, was it because we didn't get ballet class? But, guess what? A few spots had suddenly opened up. Bad people skills & too much concern with money do not a good school make. Classic bait & switch. Great on paper, not in reality. We felt duped. Before/after care is overpriced & inflexible, also.

This school uses their "S.T.A.R.S." program (writing in planner) to encourage accountability in students; however, the teachers did not stay organized nor did they communicate effectively. Teachers give a zero plus a reflection if a student accidentally skips a math problem. Parents, ACAA is a VERY negative environment and many of the students left mid-year due to the absurdity of their system. Additionally, there's a lot of busy-work and online teaching. If I thought my children, despite their good grades were actually learning from this, then I would not complain.

I appreciate the passion and support the art departments convey to the students. When it comes to the academic departments, the teachers are no better or worse than other schools, sadly. My youngest son excels in the environment, whereas my older son seems to encounter the same issues as one encounters at other schools.

If jumping through hoops is your thing, or if your kid needs lots of discipline, you'll be thrilled! ACAA participates in the draconian S.T.A.R.S. program, and issues kids a "no" for forgetting a pencil, having an improper marker (not an Expo) in their backpack, as well as for more serious infractions. If a students earns a no, they answer five questions with a paragraph each (and a paragraph doesn't count unless it has five complete sentences), then write an essay using prompt questions about why they didn't have an Expo marker (or whatever). ACAA holds binder checks to see what it is students have forgotten so they can issue nos where appropriate. If a student receives two nos in one week, they must attend "tutoring" on Friday, which consists of teachers passing out worksheets and students completing them. They offer busing, but of course NOT on Fridays, so if you have a job, you have to change your work schedule to get your child to school and back. Only 1 art show this year, you have to pay for each ticket to get in, and you can't call the school with a credit card, you must call box office. They expect a lot from students and parents, and don't give much back.

Thank God for this school that we made the right choice where we can enroll our very intellectual son who became sick and has to pull out from his class at that time and be taken cared of at home and hospital.When he was ready to come back he was not given a chance to get credit for the remainder of the quarter he will attend for.We decided to bring him to another school that will give credit for his attendance,it was ACCA. The faculty were awesome and the principal and assistant I guess(she was).They were all very accomodating and understanding. Now, my son is graduating on time(!) Despite all his excused absences from other school, he was able to recuperate. God is so good, He routed us to the right school with a heart for students like my son.Front desk employees were all awesome esp. Ann and Andrea, more power to you both.

Oh please...no bathroom privileges! My children have been attending this school for four years and will gaduate in a couple of months; we were blessed to have found ACAA! My kids are average students but it was the opportunity for the arts that drew them and kept them on track academically. If your child has a passion for the arts, feed it! My children will both pursue their dreams by attending colleges of music and design and they will be far ahead of their contemporaries when they arrive in the fall. ACAA is awesome!

My son started at this school this year. I have to say that, while there are certain things I'm not thrilled with (the bathroom issue being one of them), for us, this was the best move ever. At his regular public school, my son was not doing well academically or socially. He has been flourishing at ACAA. His grades have gone up to all As and Bs, and he loves being part of the voice and drama departments. If your children are the creative type, I highly recommend moving them to a school where they can be themselves. It was the best thing I have done for my child.

If I could have chosen no stars; I would have. This is not a good school, they treat the children inhumanely. There is one bathroom for four hundred students, kept under lock and key by the staff. The kids are there from 8 - 4 and not allowed to use the restroom. They get one bathroom pass a semester. All four hundred children are supposed to use it during the five minute break when they go from class to class, but if they are tardy for using the restroom get detention. Oh, it's also locked during lunch!!! The teachers are really oddballs too. Unless you want your child treated like they belong in Sheriff Joe's jail - don't send them here!

Terrible experience for my children. The staff withholds bathroom privileges and also uses the bathroom as rewards. My child brought home information from some of her teachers saying that she could earn use of the bathroom by writing essays and they get a free pass on their birthday. My children only lasted a month before we took them out. The art classes are just OK, The classes are over crowded and most of the teachers seem very unhappy. Not sure how they got a 9 rating?

Our Daughter has been going here for a year-and-a-half now, and she loves it. I wish I had a school like this when I was her age! Conventional schools, no matter how hard they try, must discourage the individual and condition them to fit in. They become copies of copies---paupers to their education. ACAA understands that we're all supposed to be different and have our own, unique personalities and ideas. Innovation over imitation. Most schools and parents consider the arts a waste of time and school budgets. ACAA understands how critical the arts are to building and authenticating confidence and self-esteem. But without the arts...there can be no culture. That s not an easy path as a school or student in today s monitery-driven environments. The teachers at ACAA know the arts, academics and teaching experientially are esential to shaping children. Teaching by way of innovation, not imitation. ACAA encourages students to see through their own eyes and develop their own definitions for success. That s why we are looking forward to the next 5-1/2 years that our daughter will be attending ACAA. It s the most fun that she has ever had working her little tail off.

I am a current student here. I USED to love it. Now, it's difficult to get around; and our school is too small to pack over 435 students. I always have to wait in the cafeteria before going to class, and it gets so claustrophobic I feel as though I cannot breathe. I have to push past people in order to get where I'm going without being late. Middle school has assigned seating, which obviously I'm not a fan of, or anyone else. I like our classes, I always have. But I would rather prefer to be in a school that I can freely move around in, not a small space.

This school used to be the BEST school I had ever been to. That was a couple years ago. Sincee then, many good teachers have been fired, laid off, or they just quit. The arts here are really good. I have taken every art here besides percussion. This year a LOT changed, and almost every student who was here before this year does not like the changes. Too many students are here for the Friday-less school week instead of the arts like the original intention for the school. The school is way over populated for an old office building. They are starting to make the rules stricter like REQUIRING a school science fair project which most of us haven't done since 4th grade. They also recently started summer reading which most of the students didnt do until the week school got back. This year may possibly be my last year here. I may be willing to give up no fridays in order to have a better school experience.

ACAA is not only the best choice for my son but it is the best choice for any student who not only wants an excellent education but knowledge, experience and advancement in the fields of Visual and Performing Arts. It is a safe, nurturing, professional environment in which students can advance academically ( including advancing into college credited classes) and Performing arts such as Dance, Drama , Vocal, Piano, etc and Visual art. why pay for outside vocal, drama etc lessons when students here at ACAA ( a charter school *FREE*) get those classes every day !! Plus the Mon-Thurs schedule is great Yes like all other schools there is detention and thanks to Mr. Lalley's Star policy and strict guidelines for behavior and such , the school has a fantastic track record of eliminating the causes of improper behavior.. in other words, they are on top of it!! they keep the school as it is meant to be and class body of students that WANT to be there as oppose to those schools who have students that would rather be anywhere but there..I cannot recommend this school enough!!! NOW only if I can convince them to expend to the lower grades so my younger son doesn't have to wait!!

This IS a GREAT school! I am very pleased that we made the decision to allow our son to transfer to this school. He has grown and matured, and his grades are better than ever. There is a mutual respect between staff and students that I did not see at his previous school. Even though this is a performing arts school, academics are the top priority of administration. When my son first approached me to attend ACAA, I was against the idea but made him promise to look into the school. The more I investigated the more I liked what I saw. They are a fully accredited, excelling school and recently was awarded the "2010 Spotlight on Success" award from the state superintendent.

I really love the fact the school offers drama, percussion, voice, guitar, art, dance, and a number of other extra curricular classes that my child would not get by attending a middle grade school. The homework is good but the educational level could be higher. I am just not at all keen on all the lack of respect the children give to the teachers and for the teachers or school to allow it to continue to happen. I understand the teachers hands may be tied in this area but it needs to be addressed and controlled. There are way too many complaints and not enough action when it comes to disapline and lack of respect in this school.

My daughter has been part of this school for 2 years now. In that short amount of time, we have seen quite a bit of change.

Well, ACAA, you're definitely in the right direction now! Keep it up and keep it strong!

She is graduating a year early, thanks to the staff, as well as online classes, with a 4.0 average, and, due to the fire lit within her from teachers like Mr. Berger and Ms. McNeil, she is going to college next year, working to become a music educator herself.

My daughter attended 7th grade at ACAA. She was challenged by the accademic teachers and she enjoyed the Arts programs. Her only complaint is that too many of the students do not care about school. The language arts teacher offered the most stability and challenge in her classroom. This was the first year that my child did not attend a public school and this was also the first year that my child was challenged by a teacher. Overall, the teachers did very well. My child scored above average in the AIMS test and she would like to attend ACAA in 2005/06.

I agree with the many reviews of this school. However, a think the idea of a generalization that the academics are not good is wrong. There are some great teachers with strong curriculums. Unfortunately, they do teach at this school. And as is the case in many situations, people are more willing to say bad things, then to support the good things. The problem is that not all of the academics are challenging, so those teachers that are doing a great job are overlooked. I agree that the administration should do more to support those teachers that are challenging their students. Stop putting on plays, and start doing something to support the academics.

Overall, great fun and poor academics. We were fortunate enough to have our children with a couple real good teachers over the past year and a half, however. It boasts an advanced, college prep curriculum, but after over one year of attendance we've yet to see it materialize. The performing arts programs are lots of fun for the kids, but take a lot of time, and cash from parents. The younger the student, the lesser the oppurtunity to land any type of speaking parts/solos in plays, etc. For that reason the school is really not worth looking into for the arts until the child is in high school. And then-why pull them from a perfectly good school just to be in an occasional performance at ACAA? I'd rather see my children prepared for college.

For students who enjoy performing arts, ths is an excellent school. Unfortunately, their academic program leaves something to be desired.

For students looking to incorporate performing arts into their future goals, this is the place. Wonderful staff as well.

This is the school's second year and seems all the bugs are being worked out and academics are greatly improving. Underperforming/problem students which had transferred to the school because they were underperforming at their previous schools, are either performing better at this school, or have failed to achieve the standards at this school as well, and have left. I have personally found school administrators and teachers to be very helpful and open. The school site council (parent-teacher-organization) is very effective in encouraging parent participation/involvement in the school's performance/academic success. This is where parent's need to voice concerns/ see action taken. Some parent's seem to ineffectively complain through the wrong channels, and feel it is a teacher's responsibility to educate their child. However, the most educational success happens for a child when the teacher AND PARENT both work with the child. Unfortunately, some parent's still don't understand this vital educational concept.

This school is a great concept,however, last year they fell very short on their academics and overall lack of caring about the students. We attended a full year (03-04)and tried to help the school be better for this year (04-05) only to be told by members of the board that they do not want parental help and volunteers. The school does have some good aspects about it, however, as an overall well rounded school it has falled our child. We will not return for the 04 - 05 school year since they can insure the safety of our child and nor have they improve the academics. There were some security issues at the school last year that were never addressed.

The arts side was wonderful. The only problem was the school is run by artists. The first year my child has stuck it out. The academics are weaker than I prefer for my child. And there have been some problems with unprofessional teachers and staff. Meaning you can complain about a teachers behavior yet nothing gets accomplished.
