Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
It isn't just the teachers- the students themselves will take immediate action if anybody is being bullied. Nobody will just notice and walk away. Everybody knows everybody and nobody will be treated with disrespect at this school. Even the students who act like they're too cool for that kind of stuff will not tolerate actions of hate.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
There isn't a special curriculum, but the teachers really do try their hardest to include everybody and to make sure that everyone gets it and that nobody is left behind.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
This school will immediately smack you down if they detect anything like plagiarism or cheating off of another student. They're smart about it too. Our anti-bullying policy is a strong characteristic in the high school especially.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
They wrap fun with the curriculum and they make students passionate about what they're learning about. (sometimes they try to hard to be "hip" but its funny and at least they try)

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
A couple teachers go a bit crazy. Only one or two will do it and that's only if they don't pay attention to another teacher's set deadline. And if you ask, they'll give you a day extra if needed.

I really like this school. Personally, as a student going here since fifth grade, I think this is a great community. Very small classes allows for students to get the attention they need. We might not have the normal sports like football, but we have plenty of other opportunities for people here. There is a no-bullying policy here and everyone follows it. All the students here are actually giant nerds compared to the average public school. (I'm talking about the high school.) I think the middle school is nothing compared to the high school and I've never been to the elementary. But the high school is a great place to be if you love small, nerdy communities. ~From your friendly neighborhood Sophomore

I love the sense of community and small classes. It has really helped me to succeed socially and academically.



- a
Mediocre at best. Somebody said that it looks like a dentist's office. It really does. It lacks so much that other schools readily offer.




- a
There is no room for PE, homecoming party, football or soccer games nothing of the sort for this school whatsoever. What they do with the money they raise is anybody's guess; it is certainly not investing in building a little bit of a bigger campus for the students. The homeschool that they chose is over 20 miles away from the actual school site itself. A small campus is helpful for some students but the other students do miss out on some of the other fun high school experience.



- a
Backpack should be allowed for all the stuff you have to carry around. Some of the teachers are a little too old and don't really teach much except about their life. There should be a real cafeteria that serves food and there should be a real room for kids to eat not just outside with a ramada tarp over there heads. This place is not very collage prep either. There are not many electives for a student to pick from. The dress code is stupid which tons of kids get away with. I am proud to say that I left this school and I am getting a way better education. And teachers at AOTHS pick favorites and they do not care about the rest.
