As a former student at AGM, I must say that my experiences here were by far the best times of my life. As I grow older and attend college, I see what an impact AGM really left on my life. The knowledge I gained at AGM I still use today and the amazing teachers and staff members were also truly a huge impact on my life. The atmosphere at AGM contains such love and tolerance that I always felt right at home. The friends I made at AGM are STILL my best friends today, and the memories I have made here will last forever. I am so happy to see the new advancements at the school such as the new playground, new organizational changes, and more! I love this school and I am a very proud alumni!

AGM is an amazing school! AS A MOM WHO IS NOT ARMENIAN herself, I must admit I had reservations about sending my children into the "unknown". I can now whole-heartly say that the education my children are receiving at AGM is adsolutely priceless. I feel they are in a SAFE, LOVING, NURTURING and HIGHLY EDUCATIONAL environment that I wouldn't trade for anyting! From the caring and dedicated teachers to the outstanding leadership from our principal, this school is truly a gem. My children each completed the preschool program and I can say without hesitation that they were extremely well-prepared for Kindergarten. They both love learning and I know it's the result of the solid foundation they received in their first years. This might sound cliche, but it truly is like a family here at AGM. Not only have our children made friends that I know they will keep for a lifetime, my husband and I have, too! I can't say enough nice things about this school! Without reservation, I highly recommend AGM!

AG Minassian Armenian School (AGM) is WASC accredited to the highest ranking. The academic curriculum is outstanding which is proven by our students' excellent SAT-10 national test scores. AGM boasts a rigorous English/ Armenian bilingual immersion language program where Kindergarteners are reading and writing both in English and Armenian by the end of the school year! The faculty are top notch degreed and credentialed teachers. Moreover, they are all so dedicated, patient and caring toward our children! Beyond the academics, AGM offers incredible enrichment programs to its students. Religion classes teach the children the foundations and beliefs of Christianity. The "Meet the Masters" Art Program is taught by an actual art teacher! The Computer Lab classes keep our students up to date with technology. A choral music program is taught by a wonderfully talented music teacher/pianist! AGM also offers a fun intramural sports program including soccer and basketball. I HIGHLY recommend AG Minassian Armenian School! My 3 children absolutely LOVE this school!

As a parent I am very happy with AGM. My older child is in middle school and is doing very well. My other child currently attends AGM and will repeatedly express to me how much he loves the school. Two children who have received a great education, and were happy and love their school. What more could I want?

AG Minassian School is a wonderful place for Armenian children in Orange County! Our kids receive a bilingual education in English and Armenian. Because the student to teacher ratio is not very big the attention our children receive is priceless. My two daughters have attended the school since Pre-School (my oldest is in 4th grade and my youngest in kindergarten) and we couldn't be happier with the education they are receiving. A unique and wonderful feature of this school is that it feels like a home away from home. It's a place where all teachers, parents and students know each other and work together for the sole purpose of helping the students be there best. I truly LOVE this school and would recommend it highly!
