Our daughter attendend Tumbleweed elementry school for first grade and I could not believe how horrible the school was..I am soo glad we found ALTS! The academics are challenging and her teacher has been great! It is just like private school without the cost!
LOVE ALTS if you want your child to have a good education AND you want to be a parent who participates in your childs education, this is the school for you! The key is to participate, then your child will want to learn and have pride in their education and school!
Great school, the administration is fair when it comes to enforcing agreed upon rules. The principal takes time for students and really helps solve problems which is why there is so little bullying or fighting at this school. The teachers are very aware of what is going on and everyone seems to get along. The principal and teachers are always nice to each other and seem to get along really well. The principal is always walking around the campus or visiting students in the cafeteria Respect is found on this campus. T
I love that this school strives for excellence and doesn't accept anything less. I wouldn't say that their rules are any stricter than other schools, I'd say that they actually ENFORCE their rules. The principal and teachers are always willing to make time for you if you have a concern. The dress code is wonderful! It's not too over the top that everyone looks like uniformed clones, it's about dressing respectfully and modestly which I do not think it too much to ask. They do have consequences for not turning in homework up to and including Saturday detention, which is just fine by me! Students who are constantly disruptive, delinquent in their homework, or have unresponsive parents are asked not to come back and I applaud such values.
The teachers are the BEST, they are willing to work hard for our children!!!
My grandchildren attend Abraham Lincoln Traditional School and I have seen nothing but good and positive teaching for the teachers and think they should be rewarded. This school is very caring and giving and could use some giving back to them.
A.L.T.S has a higher starndard of learning, dress and expectation at the same time being a place where my son loves to be Monday -Friday.
I love Abraham Lincoln Traditional School because my niece and nephew love it.
ALTS has wonderful parent involvement. This creates a positive atmosphere and leads to the success of the students.
Abraham Lincoln is an amazing school because of our families , teachers and staff.
Its boring for the kids and everyone HATES the dresscode and many of the teachers. me and i didnt like this scholl... WHATSOEVER so if you are reading this DONT GO THERE I mean dont get me wrong the kids are all wonderful and its easy to make friends... but your child wont like it unless they are a little goody goody :P
i am a goning to be eigth grader at this school and i will say i kinda love this school. the academics are good and SOME teachers are good. The school focuses too much on on dress code and i got to say i learned more in 6th grade then i did in 7th grade because in my 7th grad year the principal and teachers focused more on the dress code. I think some things are good about the dress code that keep us looking modest but some things have gone too far. Like i have a hard time finding jeans because of the new "tight jean" rule they call very pair of jeans you own tight and they want them baggy on you. The day of the made the rule, most of the junior high kids were in In School Suspension because there jeans were called "tight"
I absolutely love everything this school represents. I have seen a huge improvement in my children since they started attending ALTS!
As a parent of an ALT middle school student, I am very pleased with what ALTS has established. We appreciate the staff and principal's dedication to the 4 cornerstones and we rely on their enforcement. One thing I do like about the principal is she is a flexible thinker and understands children of all ages. She sometimes has to hold firm and other parents may not like it, but it is her job. The teachers are very dedicated and willing to do anything to help students. There are a few teachers who do not relate nicely to children, but the principal seems to be up on everything and changes have been made. I love this school except those parents who are always complaining that the dress code isn't enforced 100% everyday. Nothing is 100% enforced, you try your best and ALTS does a great job.
I have had all 3 of my children attend ALTS because of their high academic standards. I also have had all 3 of my children "kicked out" of their school. It is ridiculous to me that the kids are not treated as kids, but more like a military!! My youngest child is 1 whole year ahead because of this school, which is great, however, at 7 yrs old she is also less mature than the other kids in her class. She has been bored and has received several detentions. Rather than testing her to see if she needs to advance again, they will not let her return do to excessive detentions. Don't they take into consideration that she might be acting out because of her age? NO, they just dismiss them like they are PROBLEMS! If your child is not perfect in every way, DO NOT send them here!!!
As a parent, I have found ALTS to be very upfront about their expectations. There are some parents who choose to bring their child to the school, but do not abide by the dress code, homework or grading expectations. The principal deals well with the parents and it is evident that she expects parents and teachers to show respect for children. She deals with numerous issues and I am glad she holds her own when it comes to unreasonable parent demands and strongly supports ALTS. Whenever I have wanted to talk to her, she makes herself readily available. This school is not for everyone, there is homework and if it isn't done on time, your child will receive a zero in jr. high. So responsibility is key and parent support is necessary.
I love love love this school. I have found if I have a problemt at all with anything I can go to the teachers as well as the principal. I am so glad we moved our kids to this school from the PV school district.
I have 2 children at ALTS. Our family is very pleased with our experience at ALTS. While no school is perfect, ALTS's back to basics and traditional values are almost impossible to find anywhere else unless you want to pay for a private school. They are strict and this enables the teachers to spend their time teaching instead of having to deal with unruly and disrespectful students all the time. The education is wonderful. My child can read on a 4th grade level coming out of K and 1st grade. My 7th/8th grader doesn't have to deal with the inappropriate behavior that is in so many middle schools across the valley. The work given to him is challenging. I can always count on his teachers for feedback in whatever areas I ask them about. They are always available to help should tutoring be needed. ALTS is a great school.
