Teachers and principal are great. They are always looking for ways to help students make their learning experience both, challenging and fun.
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.
My granddaughter goes to Amerischools Academy North and she is doing so well. I really like the school
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.
This school is amazing! My son is doing so well at this school. He enjoys going to school everyday. He enjoys all school events and community explorations. Teachers and staff are very accessible, friendly and caring.
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
