My children have been attending Amerischools Academy South in Yuma for 3 years now, and I couldn't be happier with my decision to send them to this charter school. My daughter attended Kindergarten at a public school before she came here and unlike the public school, Amerischools caps the classes at 24 students. The principal, Mrs. Fox, is amazing. She strikes the perfect balance between strict and loving, and she takes the time to know each of the children in her care, as well as their parents. This attitude is passed down to her teachers, who also take the time to learn the name of all the students in the school while still focusing attention on those children in their care. The teachers take the time to challenge all of the students. The school offers physical education, music, art, computers, and other classes that were cut out of the public school. There are also clubs offered after school, at no charge, to help students grow and explore- dance, Spanish, and board games are just a few of the options. I wish the school was more than K-6 so I could leave my children in this perfect learning environment even longer. If you are looking for a school in Yuma, look no further.
My daughter has gone to school here since kindergarten. She is now finishing up the 6th grade at Amerischools North. I have always appreciated the small class sizes and attention from all her teachers. The Principal is firm, but would bend over backwards to help a student or parent, in or out of school. There isn't a bus system, but they have great before and after school care at an affordable rate. The teachers really care about their sudents and their education. I just wish it was through 8th grade! We will miss this small school that has become like our extended family.
AmeriSchools is a wonderful place to work. The staff members are nice, supportive, and caring. They are always working hard to provide the best education to the students.
This is my second year working for AmeriSchools-South. I believe it is a wonderful school. It has a great learn environment! All of my co-workers are always will to help with out being asked. Another great thing about our schools is all the wonderful parents. I really like that all of the parents are very involved and willing to go the extra mile to help their child(ren).
I have taught at AmeriSchools for two years, and I am blessed working here. I see the teachers giving their attention to each student for his/her personal needs (not just the core education) but pushing them personally ahead in areas than just their strengths even if it means extra work for the teacher! The teachers understand that kids learn differently, and at different paces, and accommodate learning needs.
This is my first year teaching at AmeriSchools-South; I really enjoy working here every day! School s philosophy is to provide each student with a high quality education. Teacher s instruction meets the individual needs, interest, and abilities of the students.
Amerischools Academy is a great school. I enjoy going to work everyday and the atmosphere is positive. All staff members work hard to achieve and give all students the best education possible.
Everyday that I work here I feel I am given the greatest opportunity to change a child's life through teaching, learning and growing with the children. My days are filled with positive people starting with our principle all the way down to the youngest member of our student body. I enjoy being here and being a part of something greater than myself.
This is my second year working here and it only gets better with time. Our class size is smaller than at other schools to allow for much more one-on-one interaction with students. Teachers are given more free range in lessons to modify to the needs of each and every student. We as faculty continue to learn and grow with the students in ensure the student is gaining the highest level of education for each grade level.
I love working at amerischools academy. All staff members work together to help each student achieve and acomplish their educational goals. Our principal is a great leader, she inspires all staff and students to be better.
I love teaching in a school where we can teach to fit the needs of every child in our classroom and not just follow a set of prearranged lessons. My students get hands on activities to help them learn. The staff goes out of it way to assist every student and other staff members. We are truly a family here. Best teaching experience I have ever had. I love working here.
Amerischools is a great school. The school focuses on differentiating instruction to meet the needs of individual students. We have an exceptional teaching staff and our principal is extremely supportive. Students learn citizenship skills and to succeed in academics.
My school AmeriSchools is a very good school. All the teachers are super nice, they are respectful and nice. The principal is a good and strict but really sweet she is not mean to anyone. She is always fair and super organized. This school is a small, yet a great school!! We have a rule that is called "one finger touch," I love that rule, at other schools they don't have a rule like that
My son is in his first year at Amerischools Academy and so far we love the education he is receiving here. The teachers and principal make school fun and challenging. The only drawback is the school facility- it is small and a bit crowded. I wish the school would move to a better building and add a 7th and 8th grade, so we don't have to find a middle school in a few years.
I have been employed at AmeriSchools for over 6 years. AmeriSchools is truly different than any other school in Yuma County. The staff members are compassionate, hard working and strive to provide students with an extraordinary education. They focus not only on their students academic needs, but also on their behavioral and social development. The parents & families are supportive of school events and understand that continual communication with their child's teacher is essential. I am blessed to have been given the privilege to begin at AmeriSchools many years ago, and I hope to continue being part of the AmeriSchools family for many years to come. If you haven't visited, I strongly encourage you to stop in and take a tour.
I love the schools small size that allows for teachers and staff to get to know every family.
We love Amerischools Academy South! My son has gone to this school since kindergarden and is now in 3rd grade. The teachers are wonderful and the principal is awesome. The only thing I see that needs improvement is getting the school zoned for speed zones...which apparently is being worked on. thank you
Great school! This is my son's last year at Amerischools Academy and he's as happy to attend school today as he was six years ago when he started kindergarden.
I love Amerischool Academy. I teachers and principal are great. My daughter really likes going there. She has been at this school since kinder and is now a 6th grader. She has exceeded all aims, and is ahead in math and reading. Couldn't ask for a better place for my daughter to go to school. I tell everyone about Amerischool and hope they bring their kids there as well.
My son went to 3rd grade here and the teachers and staff are very wonderful. If you have any questions or issue they will take the time to help you find the answers you need. Also if your child might be a bit ahead in some areas they can give him or her some extra work to help keep pushing them ahead. The class sizes are nice and the over all size of the school helps everyone be able to get any and all help they would need even if they get it from a different teach or staff member.
