We just moved to Yuma and my grand-daughter attends readiness with Mrs. Meyer. She absolutely loves the school and looks forward to school everyday. Mrs. Meyer is an outstanding teacher! She is always available to talk with parents at any time.The principal is outstanding as well! He is always out with the kids and involved in all activities. I am so happy we were lead to apply to Amerischools North!

I went to Amerischools from kindergarten to sixth grade. I saw it go under a number of changes and know the school as well as anyone can. To parents considering sending your child there I offer this one warning, if there is something about your child that would make them stand out there is a high chance that he/she will end up isolated and friendless. I remember times when other students would do things like call me names, pay people to not talk to me, and issue schoolwide alienation of friends. However the thing I will always remember and the part that haunts me he most is telling a teacher, nothing happening and then feeling helpless and unsafe. I will always remember the day I broke out in tears in the princepals office and nothing changing.

Wonderful teachers. Ms. McCormack is a great teacher. She helps the kids advance so much. Mr . Wachunus has done an excellent job with all the different activities he does for the kids. Ms Bielke and Mrs Meyer were such great teachers

I'm so glad my son attends this school! I love that all staff members, (principal included) seem to know all of the students by name! If you're on the waiting list....it's definitely worth the wait!!!

Amerischools Academy North is a wonderful setting for optimal learning. My son is a student in Mr. Martin's class, and has learned more there than in the previous three years in public school combined. Many opportunities are given for high-performing students to challenge themselves and excel. There is a great family atmosphere, where students and parents feel welcome and safe. Great School!

Amerischool is awesome I love the fact they give each student attention and help them develop to succeed. My daughter teacher Mr. Martin is great and is teaching my child a lot and is very good on helping kids to succeed. I would recommend this school to all my friends and family.

I love Amerischool !! I love the fact that my son was able to get in it even though his birthday is in September. His kindergarten teacher Mrs.Torrez was amazing ! A very caring teacher ! Could not have asked for a better kindergarten teacher for my son. His first grade teacher is awesome as well! The staff is great! They're always willing to answer any questions and always in a good mood! I could not be happier with this school. I love the fact that they know the students and family by name. The tutoring services they offer have really helped my 6 year old. He loves it! Great school

I thoroughly enjoy this school because the teachers invest themselves in each student. I have two children there and they both love going to school. The staff is very professional but personable as well.

This is the 1st year we've had a child in grade school, but have been more than happy. The teachers have all been extremely supportive and my daughter loves it there. She says the principal is strict, but I find that a good thing! My second child starts kindergarten this next year and is very excited. The class sizes are much easier for the teachers to give more one on one. I do wish there was a little more parent support at the school. Seems it's always the same parents at all the events. All in all we have been very happy with Amerischool Academy North!

Amerischools is great. I have been so impressed with the principal and staff. You can tell they really care about the kids! I've also been very impressed with the anti-bully enforcement they have there. The school is also very secure, compared to all the other schools in the area. My son loves being in clubs after school, too! I have been so happy to see my son always come home from school with a smile on his face. He has been so happy there and I'm so glad we moved him to Amerischools! (And he is too!)

This school offers a great education in a private school setting/atmosphere. Class sizes are not too overcrowded and each child recieves the attention he or she needs. I am most impressed by how all the staff know the majority of the kids in the school, giving parents peace of mind that they're chilren are safe and well looked after. One of my children has attended since Kinder and is now in his last year there. I only wish the school offered middle school courses so that I could keep him there.

My daughter is about to complete Kindergarten with Amerischools. She has truly loved her teacher, an amazing educator who really connected with my daughter and who taught her so much. We also met with the principal, and he really seems on top of things at the school. He listened when we wanted to discuss something, and he made a difference for us.

This is a great school for learning. I realy like the small class room sizes because it gives students and teachers a great one on one learning experiance. This is my daughters first year there and she absoultly loves going. Best part is I enjoy watching my daughter's educational growth. I also like the after school activites. My daughter is in the zumba after school and she enjoys coming home and showing me her moves. I recomend this school to everyone.

Both of my children go to AmeriSchools Academy North. They are both excelling students due mostly to the wonderful teachers they have had. The teachers hold the students to high academic standards. My kids love going to school and don't want to leave. The staff works very hard and are available to the parents whenever needed. The attention to detail and the fact that many of the staff members know all of the students and even who their parents are is comforting. The principal, Mr. Wachunas, even noticed my son lost a tooth the other day! They are very compassionate and caring to needs outside of the school. There is a family feeling whenever you walk in the door.

I absolutely recommend and love Amerischools North Campus. The staff is amazing and always helpful. Mr. Wachunas is an extremely good principal and cares about all the children in the school, Miss Amy is the most helpful aid and I highly recommend Mrs. Torres as a teacher. The patience and care the staff has for the kids is why I care about this school.

Great school!! Mr. Wachunas is a very caring and understanding principal. We are very lucky to have this school here in Yuma. My only suggestion will be to add at least 7th and 8th grades.

There is no other school, that I know of here, where the principal is very involved with the children of a school. He is always on the field trips for the clubs, and knows his students' names. The teachers work for the children of this school, to enable them to be the best they can, and to help them strive to achieve their potential in academics. The staff is warm and friendly, and keep the parents informed (for as we know, children never forget to hand their parents paperwork, lol). This is a school with a solid base foundation for the children, that prepares them for the next level. It is a school that I have rarely seen a child set aside from others, even from their peers. Kudos to the principal, teachers, and staff for this learning environment.

This school is a wonderful school, if only all children could be so lucky to attend this school. I was an educator there for many years and I still love and miss it like it was yesterday. Due to us moving away I am still so saddened that my children will not be able to attend as I had planned. Mr. Wachunas is hands down one of the best Principals anyone can ever work for. I learned so much from him while teaching there forever I am grateful. He truly cares for his staff and all of his children that are under his supervision. On a minute by minute basis he is always trying to figure out what more he can do for his students, staff, and campus.He truly cares for his students, and his community. Always giving back in many different shapes and forms.It's a beautiful place to educate your child. As a mother and educator its a school where I truly feel my children would be safe and educated beyond compare.I feel its a place where all families can call home. Mrs. Fox is a absolutely a wonderful Principle as well and cares and loves her students. It truly will be missed as well as all of the wonderful dedicated caring staff that cares for their student's as their own.

I love Amerischool and so do my girls. This school is tight knit with great focus on students success. The teachers are dedicated and kind towards parents as well as students. We are so lucky to have a principal as involved as Mr. Wachunas. We were sold when we met him and trust his judgement as to the safety and intellectual development of our most precious gifts.

My son attends Amerischools Academy-North. Excellent ! Teacher and staff are great. The principal is very involved in knowing what's going on with students and parents. The principal knows every student's name and most of the parents as well, the teachers take an interest in their students and what they are learning, and the school atmosphere is always positive and uplifting. All qualities I want my son to be surrounded by as he grows and learns. He's now in 5th grade, but his 4th grade teacher, Mrs. McCormack (BEST teacher ever), still checking on him to make sure he's always trying his best. My son is happy to attend school everyday, enjoys the class enviroment and to have Mr. Farley as his 5th grade teacher. Thank you Mr. W and Amerischools Academy staff for all the great work you do!!

This school is truly a great school. I have had my children in the school since kindergarten. You only have to visit the school for 15 min. when you notice the true dedication from the principal down to the teacher's aides. The principal and the teachers donate many hours a week of their own time and money to make sure they are meeting the needs of each and every student at school. The principal teacher and parent are a community I daresay a family which you do not find. Unfortunately, in many schools today. I know that when my children grow up they will remember and utilize the tools the school has given thm and his love that it has shown to them. It does my heart good to know that there are some people still in this world with the dedication and the love of teaching.

Our kids just transferred to this school this year. We do not regret that decision at all. All our kids our excelling, and for the first time get very excited to go to school! They really enjoy the community exploration and are learning so much. Would highly recommend this school. We just wish they had a middle school/high school program and a school in the Foothills.

This school should not be rated an 8 . It should be rated a 10 ! As being a former student at this school my experience has been amazing . the students are nice,no bullies. The teachers are always loving and always go out of there way to do everything necessary for the students. The school is very organized , and is very considerate on the explorations . If you asked me,I would say go to this school before checking any others. -Gabriel.c
