I am an alumni student of ADCS from the graduating 8th grade class of 1999. I attended a public high school after 8th grade at ADCS, and can truly say that I got a better education in my jr. high years than all 4 years in high school. The principal taught an accelerated English class, which while very rigorous at the time, put me at the top of my class and I believed helped to prepare me later to pass AP English tests. I also felt that the in the 1 year of Spanish offered my 8th grade year I learned more than all 3 years I took in high school combined. The teachers care and offer tons of one-on-one attention for each student.
