My son has been at ACLC for the past year and I have been incredibly pleased with his academic and social development. ACLC is a school with strong academic standards that also provides a welcoming and collaborative environment for all students. Although this may sound basic, I can tell you that this is a rare combination for a school. I appreciate the school's democratic philosophy and its established principles whereby everyone s voice matters. And I have found the facilitators to be an impressive and caring group of individuals who are teaching our kids to be the critical thinkers of tomorrow by providing students with meaningful and rewarding assignments, not just keep busy work.

A great school where our children are happy to go every day to learn to lead their life with the help of a vibrant community of involved parents.

ACLC has a rich history of graduating smart, capable young people. The project based curriculum means less didactic learning and more hands on experiences. Learners are encouraged to take the reins of their education and their community by participating in leadership and decision making. ACLC creates an environment in which diversity is encouraged. Learners from 6-12 work together as a community. Our first day at ACLC for 6th grade we struggled with the locks on the locker assigned to my son. Learners came over of their own volition to assist. I came that day feeling proud that my son was part of such a warm and caring environment.

My son is a freshman at ACLC, his first year attending this school. Our family has been very happy with ACLC. Our son loves the project-based learning, over-all small school size and the enthusiasm students and staff have for their school.

The Alameda Community Learning Center is a great school because there are genuine opportunities for learners to take on leadership responsibilities. The learners are on the Governing Boards, they lead the Judicial Committee, they run the school leadership, they are Educational Leaders in the classrooms as well.

This is our first year at ACLC. We wanted to find a school for our 6th grader that combined a culture that expected success for each student and provided students with the opportunity to guide their learning experience. ACLC provides a safe learning environment in which academic achievement is celebrated by both students and teachers. She loves it!

My son is a 7th grader and this is his second year at ACLC. He enjoys his classes, appreciates his Facilitators and very much likes his free periods during the week where he does homework so he has less to do at home. As a parent, I really like the project based learning style and the democratic society that is in place at ACLC. This school is an absolute asset to Alameda.

This is my child's second year at ACLC and, for the first time since he was in second grade, he was looking forward to going back to school at the end of the summer!! The project-based learning, the fact that learners (students) have a say in their school, and they must take responsibility for a lot of their learning have been great incentives for my son. He was tired of so much rote learning in elementary school and not being able to learn at his own pace (faster in Math and Science, average in English/Social Studies). They recently had their Science Day and I was so impressed! Most of the projects were really well developed and during the school day they rotated among a variety of science related activities. Pretty much all the Facilitators are fabulous, experienced and really enjoy teaching. The leadership is also exemplary, always going the extra mile! This is a special place I highly recommend it.

I left ACLC three years ago along with over 1/2 of my class (the top half of the class). I have been talking to good friends of mine and I am afraid the school has only been getting worse (which I thought was impossible). This school has mastered the use of propaganda. DO NOT FALL FOR IT!!! They talk about "student-empowerment" in running the school. Frankly I had less say then any student of any other public or private school. Furthermore they emphasis the importance of "project learning." What "project learning" is really busy work with no value to it what so ever. The curriculum is useless and focuses ONLY on California state testing. SAT, ACT, and general education they just don't care about. All they care about is their outward appearance. I lost years of my life going to this "school" I plead with you not to make the same mistake.

My daughter is having a great experience for 3 years now! Their project based curriculum works well for students interested in science and engineering! Creativity at its best!

ACLC is an amazing collection of creative, collaborative and exceptional thinkers (adults and youth alike). It's a place where my 7th grader girl feels accepted as an individual and "normal" in her love of math and science. She and we (her parents) feel that we have a voice at the school and really appreciate the talents of both faculty and families here. What a welcoming community!

ACLC is a diverse, inclusive student body that emphasizes project-based learning. Physics, algebra, and geometry, for example, comes into play in the egg-catapault and mini- rollercoaster projects. Grades 6-12 share a cozy campus next door to Wood Middle School and just a block from Alameda's Crown Beach. It's a good school for self-starters, although the school also emphasizes academic support and planning skills. Post high school planning begins in 9th grade. The emphasis is on learners as leaders, but families also volunteer. In 2012-13, almost 80% of the families donated $ to the school's main fundraiser.

My wife and I enrolled our son and daughter at ACLC when we moved to Alameda two years ago. Since then, we've experienced first-hand how ACLC s self-directed learning approach helps kids develop independence. Our initial parental jitters and hovering soon gave way to trust in our kids own ability to do what needs doing (or suffer their own consequences). This kind of self-reliance regarding classes, homework and community service makes ACLC a great college-prep experience. (They also get to take real community college classes instead of AP classes). Along with solid academics, ACLC kids get empowered in other vital ways. Our daughter became a more confident performer in the Rockshop music program. Our son co-created an ACLC baseball team that made it to the NCS championships. This summer, he successfully helped crusade for ACLC students to have the right to join teams at the adjacent (larger) public high school. Amazing things like this just happen at ACLC. With the infusion of energy from a new principal, counselor and science teacher this year, I m even more excited about the school s future and can t wait to see how our kids and their friends thrive and evolve.

ACLC has been an incredibly positive developmental journey for both of my children. In two years, my high-schooler has gone from being a non-participative (even rebellious) teen to being an involved and responsible leader with straight A's. My middle-schooler has learned to take full responsibility for homework, time management and achieve high academic performance, and have fun while doing it. Each child has benefited from this school in different ways because the personalized program allows them to create their own outcomes and requires them to take responsibility for their own learning. Though they follow the CA state curriculum, they go creatively beyond "teaching to the test." This is a supportive, yet academically demanding, college-prep community that fosters personal responsibility, independence, creativity and self-motivation with incredible opportunities for leadership and advanced academic accomplishment (taking college classes at nearby community colleges). With new school leadership and staff in critical areas this year (2012-13), it promises to be even better. An education in life as well as academics, ACLC is a special place that creates special people.

My child has thrived at this school. It is definitely an alternative to traditional public school and not for everyone, but has been a good fit for us. The teachers are inspired and really take the time to get to know individual students. A lot of "out of the box" learning takes place which is really neat. I have also found it very easy to monitor my child's assignments and progress through the school's online grade system.

I am very active supporting this very caring school community. I have to say my child's grades reflect the effort that he put into his classes. He has done poorly where he has missed assignments and done very well were he has been on top of his work.

Not recommended if your purpose in going to school is to get a great education. But if you want to hang out with friends, and your parent is super involved in the school the staff will make sure you have great grades even when you aren t in class. The school will accommodate your schedule if you want to travel, work or do something off campus. The teachers loose kids work all the time and don t give good lessons to assigned work. If you need help with schoolwork you are on your own, so your parents should have extra money for private tutoring if you want to learn anything. Never really new how much my kids were missing in education until they left ACLC. Sad thing is, they know this too!

ACLC is a great place to work as a teacher. The staff is highly energized and engaged and has the time and dedication to form meaningful relationships with learners and watch them grow into leaders and life long learners.

I currently attend ACLC and this school is pretty unique. We have free periods, which prepares us for college. We also have a tight relationship with the 'facilitators'. Although, I think ACLC needs improvement for its physical education.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
