I have two kids the attend ACMS. The teachers are great. They know how engage the student to learn through Project Based Learning. The Music and PE programs are amazing. I have one major concern with the bullying and fights that goes on. There is one group of kids that randomly picks out kids, for no reason, bully's them and sometimes beats them up. It sometimes goes on in the classroom. One of my kids has been a victim of bullying. It needs to stop before something serious happens.
This school does have good teachers with good and different teaching skills but the kids, now a days, our being mean to others that may cause bulling at this school and I refuse to put anyone in this school because when I was in that school, races hung out with their own races and some races hung out with other races and i was just bad. I don't recommend this school to your children.
I would like to thank all of the teachers and staff of ACMS. I am a grandmother and legal guardian of my grandson who attends your school. Since he has been at ACMS, his grades have been excellent! I am amazed at how well he has been taught and how much he has learned. I would also rate your school a 5 star school.
I think the authorities of ACMS should pay more attention to what some of the students do during their break periods as well as after each class. Peer pressure is an ongoing problem that occurs to most students, but parents and teachers must be involved at all times to prevent this from happening.
I feel ACMS is a good school overall. I have had 2 kids complete all three grades and one currently attending. My oldest son struggled at first in 6th grade but his IEP counselor helped him get back on track and by the 8th grade he had a 3.4. He went on to Vintage and passed his exit exam, his was the first class to have to pass, that says a lot. He started ACMS when the school was the school was very young. My younger son did very well and had no problems with students, teachers etc. he is at Vintage now still doing well even with the transition. My daughter struggles with school always has. Her teachers stay in touch with me by email/phone & let me know how she is doing. The office calls me and the police officer on campus is a great addition.
I have been very impressed with the level of commitment on the part of the teaching staff at ACMS. Each teacher that I have met seems to really want the students to be successful, and is willing to go the extra mile to assure that the goal is met. My 6th grader is struggling, and all of his teachers are working together to help him. This school has been named a California Distinguished School which shows the commitment of all the staff.
