Just transferred into area from an excellent Chicago suburban school system. The schools are very comparable. Very attentive to individual needs of kids. Excellent teacher/student relationships. Amazed at progress of my kindergartner. Great extracurricular opportunities too. Unusually so at the grade levels of my child at least. Very hi parent participation and very active PTO with direct hands on involvement. Very happy with school.
I have two childen attending AIE and it's been an excellent experience. The teachers and staff are A+ and trully care about the kids. I am always recommending this school to my neighbors and colleagues.
My daughter attends AIES and I love it! The IB program is great and the immersion program ( in french) is amazing! The principal and teachers are awsome and they really care about our kids. Lots of parent involvement.
I've had 3 children attend this school. Two are still there. It's a fantastic school. We have had high principal turnover but now have the original vice principal back as principal and she is amazing. Lots of parent involvement. Kids tend to be above average here. I do think, however, that the immersion program needs a re-haul. This is an IB public school. Most would pay to go to this school. Wonderful teachers.
Both of my kids attended this school. Most of the teachers were fantastic. Some have been there too long and resist change. Excellent administration an support staff. Care about kids. Very poor support form the District office. They lack leadership. However, top performing school
Both my kids are going to AIES. It is the best school in Colorado springs with an IB program. The teachers and parents are very involved in every aspect of child academic development.
This school is great. My son while attending in CA. was somewhat ahead of his class. Here is is below average. He will start 1st grade this year and the school has a program that will teach half of his classes in french and the other half in english.
Music & art opportunities are great. Talented and gifted programs for 4th and 5th grade are good. There is a lack of diversity at this school.
High parent involvement and highest commitment to IB ideals and qualities.
All three of our children have attended Academy International. AIES fosters a rich learning environment, provides a multitude of opportunities for children to excel and has a very high level of parent involvement. Highly recommended.
Fabulous school with an awesome staff and involved parents. The French Immersion Program is great. Students (1st-5th) spend half their day learning Math and Science in French. Also the Music and Art classes are top notch.
