Great school especially for the standard of APS schools. My daughter is now in First grade and I have to say that there has been major improvement in the organization of the school since last year. The staff and teachers are extremely dedicated and love what they do (in general) As a parent, you need to be involved PERIOD. I have noticed that a lot of parents expect the school to fully educate their children including basing home training but don't always support or help the child and wonder why the child is failing academically but also on a social interaction level. If you are involved and keep a regular communication with the teachers, your kid will thrive. The Encore Program and international days are a wonderful cultural exposure as well. Still hoping the school will get back to its initial immersion teaching of foreign languages like it is the case for private accredited international schools as I believe is the most efficient way to teach foreign languages.

Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
I believe that at times general curriculum decisions are made based on failing students which is unfair toward the students and parents that do what they are supposed to


Develops character: Agree


- a
The school does teach strong values. Parental follow up is not there with a lot of kids unfortunately but that's out of the school's control

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
homework has been consistent since Kindergarten and my daughter is in first grade. I , however heard other parents complain that some teacher don't believe in homework and the students were in 3-5th grade which is unacceptable in my opinion and it sounds like those teacher are trying to keep their work to the minimum

My son has been going to this school since kindergarten he is now in 3rd grade. Since he has been attending he has been physically assaulted by other students and bullied and belittled by teachers. Most recently he was accused of writing inappropriate words in notebooks in his class and his teacher gave him detention when he defended himself. This is an absolute horrible school filled with teachers who have no idea how to nurture children.

My daughter is in kindergarten and loves her teacher. Since her mom is from Mexico it is very important for our daughter to be able to speak Spanish. We are extremely happy with the language options the school offers. In addition, the ENCORE programs are GREAT! -An Extremely HAPPY Parent! :-)



- a
My child is currently in kindergarten and enjoys the different classes. She seems to be doing well and learning.



- a
The teachers are involved and supportive. There are a ton of after school activities to participate in and it's a great location. My son has thrived at this school and had benefited from learning a second language.

This is a champagne education with a beer price. My oldest started as a 1st grader in Mandarin the first year this school was opened. The staff and teachers are everything you could hope for. Now he is in high school and has to have 2 years of language to prepare for graduation. He is grateful that he had so many years of Mandarin as learning Spanish has been easy for him. I cannot say enough good things about this school.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
They gave an excellent class on bullying and I loved the tools and empowerment to intervene that my daughter came home with.
