My child goes to the half-day Pre-K program at the Academy. We absolutely love it. My son has a fall birthday, so this is actually his 3rd year of preschool. He has gone to a different preschool each year (plus the Goddard School back when I used to work). I have to say that I have been amazed at the quality of this program compared to the other preschools that he has been to. There is plenty of time for play but also a strong focus on learning. It is obvious that a lot of thought has been put into the curriculum for each week. The kids don't do worksheets; they learn through art, activities, music, guests, games, etc. Every week the teachers change out all of the toys at each center to go along with the theme for the week. They even do tongue strengthening exercises to help with their verbal skills! The teachers also emphasize discipline and independence. The kids are taught to resolve their own disputes. I wish the rankings for the Academy were separated out by Elementary, Middle School and High School. My experience so far with the elementary school is that it is a top notch school and feel very fortunate have my son enrolled here.

This school is not all its hyped up to be. They rely on their reputation alone and do not care about the students as individuals. All classes are filled to maximum capacity (29-30 students per class, 3-5 classes per grade). It is a joke trying to attend a school event as the school is so overpopulated that parking and finding a seat to sit is impossible. Furthermore pickup at the main campus is a zoo! We withdrew our children from this school after dealing with rude teachers and a snobby principal for over a year. Not recommended! (Referring to Elementary, we have heard that it only goes down hill from there once students move to Middle & High School.) Look elsewhere, much better options available that provide students with greater attention and educational support in order to help them succeed.

This school needs lots of improvements. Most teachers quit there and got fired, all the high school teachers are young. Im just telling you about high school, and the stop light to the school is horrible. You'll wait at least 15 minutes when school starts. They alot of times shut down the school because of the recent conditioning problem (2-3 students passed out) and they closed down another time because of a leaking problem. There once was a flooding. They also had all the lights shut down a couple of times. Its just going down. I mean the staff are great and friendly but the school itself is horrible. there money is going low and they cant print alot of stuff. There also was 2 homeless teachers there!! They need to start fixing these problems. but otherwise a great community. Just needs improvement.

My daughter is in the afternoon pre-k program at the academy and she loves it! I have volunteered in the classroom so have seen a full day from start to finish. The teachers are kind and invested in the students but firm when need be. The expectations for behavior are high, but with the direction of the teachers, the kids do very well meeting those expectations. There is a good balance of academics, free play and outdoor play. I am impressed. I also should add that the parents of the children in the classroom are wonderful people. We are looking forward to kindergarten next year!

Alright, as a student you expect me to say that this is a horrible school. But, I'm not going to say that it's horrible. I'm just going to say it needs a lot of improvements. First of all, it is a great school if you are looking for an elementary school. Other than that don't even try. This year students/ parents have been battling the administration constantly about changes that need to be made. One of their big things at The Academy is that they are always improving, making it a college prep school, always trying to help you, promises promises promises... Yet they have about only two A.P. classes, the honors classes are just a name nothing more, and they focus more on test scores more than the individualized student. Also, class sizes are about 30ish students. I was in a classroom with 40 kids and a lot of us had to sit on the floor for about a month because they didn't have enough desks. The school is honestly not big enough to have a 3-12 grade campus. We have too many traveling teachers because there are not enough classrooms. I can list some many other things. However, I don't have space. All I'm saying is if you want to be constantly frustrated, I got the place for you.

In regards to the previous post, dated October 23, you must be talking about a different school. Second graders and third graders are not even at the same campus at The Academy...impossible for them to be in the same classes. By the way, your spelling is atrocious. Yes The Academy has faced cuts, as have all other schools. Yes, the American education system is a mess. What hasn't changed however, is the School's stance that their teachers and staff provide extras to keep every kid learning. There are literacy teachers who make sure each student is reading above grade level. The students still get two specials a day: art, music, pe, science, and computers. The character education program emphasizes respect, responsibility, etc. The math curriculum has each kid working at their own level, which also tends to be above grade level. The parents volunteer a ton to help both teachers and students. The PTO has really worked hard to create a sense of community and raise additional funds so that kids aren't off selling stuff like cookie dough. As you can see, we are content with the education our kids are getting.

This school is a JOKE!! If your child has any type of a personality, I don't recommend this school. The Pre K program had my child doing things we had been doing with her since she was two. ( color sorting, lace up cards, learning the alphabet, and numbers to name a few.) They have a teacher in the classroom who's only purpose is to walk around with a clip board and write down the bad things every child does. When I asked the teacher for any positives, she had none. It's really not a very loving environment for four year olds! They ask for money in one way or another on a weekly basis ( on top of the tuition we already pay) It's a real disappointment for us, since we have had out child on the waiting list since she was 18 months, and now we have her at home where honestly she is much better off! I wish I could describe with words how much I truly dislike this school.

First of all I would like to say that my history with this school goes way back, as I am an alumni. I started at the Academy 4 years into its opening, it was small but it was wonderful! My daughters attend the school now and boy has it ever changed! All of the people who started this school and dreamed of better for students are gone. The new administration has no clue about how tight knit and inspiring this place used to be. The teachers are great, at least the ones that have stayed the past couple years. The budget cuts and subsequent loss of good teachers is awful! They are so concerned with raising money and passing tests, it's ridiculous. They are programming children not educating them. On top of that my elementary kids have at least 45 minutes to an hour of homework and reading, then I get emails from the teachers about logging on to take practice tests and nonsense. Eight hours a day is enough! If the work cannot be completed in 8 hours it can be finished the next day. The American education system is a joke and this school was started to give students the opportunity that isn't afforded in public schools, obviously we are just "another school" trying to pass TCAP.

We were very excited when we were told that our child had been accepted into the Academy for Kindergarten. Little did I know at the time that the classes would be crammed with 28 students (the district max for K is 24), and our teacher was actually a substitute that they hired on at the last minute. After receiving several phone calls a week for figeting in class, talking with classmates, and not standing still in line, along with comments from other teachers that "that class definitely has some issues" and our observation of the class that was more like a seminary than a colorful kindergarten class, we decided to move him to a public school which allowed for kids to be kids.

Lots of inconsistencies!! No transparency whatsoever. Lots of things have changed in the few years we've been here with no explanation. We lost a ton of great teachers and now we have a school full of new teachers that don't know the philosophy of school or the culture. The board is doing a very poor job of being transparent. Parents are not presented with the truth and decisions are made without parent involvement which contradicts the mission statement. Student's education is suffering as too many decisions are being made without proper consideration for the greater good. Not sure where the school is heading which is scary. We are definitely looking at other options for our children, which is unfortunate, especially since we waited so long to get it. I hope things can turn around!

The teachers at the Academy are doing the best they can with what they are faced with. They are the bright spot of this school. That said, I agree with the other parent that has posted that the Academy has slid quite significantly in quality. They are packt like sardines in a tin can. The class sizes have ballooned to over 30 per class, and this is the new norm. Parents and the District decided to cut teacher pay to deal with the budget cuts, so they continue to lose good teachers. The State needs to increase funding drastically and it seems that Charter schools get less than public schools, so to deal with the screwed up system of funding, Charters are packing in students to compensate. I think that our legislators, Fed & State(and ignoramous Colo. voters who continually vote down increases in K-12 funding) have failed us and our kids! There needs to be a renewed emphasis on smaller class sizes, more teachers and more options like languages, PE and music offered to all kids. These TCAP tests are a joke and take up way too much resources and time. There should be testing, but not like this! We, as the people who are paying for all this chaos, need to put a stop to it!

Fantastic, progressive and dynamic school. Teachers are energetic and passionate about teaching. Our kids have been at the new North campus since it opened, and we love the school. The Promethium boards in each classroom are amazing - the kid's grasp of concepts is heightened by the interactive teaching. We love the technology used throughout the school - they are far ahead of where other Adams 12 schools are now. Kindergarten on up all have computers in the classroom and technology is a regular part of the classroom. All parents are required to spend at least 4 hours per month in the classroom, which helps to ensure Parent engagement and involvement.

This school has really started to go down hill. The teachers do not respond to emails in a timely fashion. All this school cares about is getting money and focusing on growth, rather then students being able to succeed in their classes. They need to focus on small class size and get rid of the late start Tuesdays because most people go to work by 8 am and not 9 am. The high school of this school is lacking. Teachers are always quitting or getting fired. That is not good sign.

This is a good school with caring teachers and staff. If you are not satisfied with standard test results it does not necessarily mean the school is not good. The kids do learn a lot and are challenged. Teachers are doing their best. Most of the kids are polite. Parents are the power so be involved in your child's education.

This is a terrific school - if you are simply looking for an elementary school option. I have had children in this school for several years, and it's clear the secondary (7-12) is an afterthought. So far, three junior high teachers have quit since the start of the school year. I have heard concerns regarding salaries and workload as two of the big reasons for leaving. There are very few extra-curricular opportunities, and the 'honors' classes aren't any more difficult or rigorous than the non-honors classes. No true STEM program. Gifted and talented screening is minimal at best. There is no transparency with the school board or administration; decisions are pushed through without due diligence or input from the parents. It's almost as if they do the absolute minimum to communicate with parents (their constituents!) to skirt around debate. As a result, decisions which may not be in the best interest of the school are being made by an invisible minority. It *was* a great school - once. It's become a shell of the original concept the last four years.

My oldest child is in her second year at The Academy. We were grateful that she started here in Kindergarten, she is now in first grade. We are so impressed with how much she has learned and how she has blossomed into a great little student! All of the teachers, staff and parents who work with the kids regularly are loving, patient and great at teaching! I highly recommend this school to any parent looking for a great school that achieves high academics, well rounded specials (science, computers, gym, art and music) as well as core values!

We researched and reviewed so many schools before deciding on The Academy for kindergarten. The Academy has been amazing both academically and socially. It is challenging, engaging, fun, and a warm environment. We could not be happier with the teachers, administration, curriculum, student body and parents. This school has high academic standards, weekly class "specials" such as Art, Music, P.E., Science Lab, Library and Computers, and a very good PTO that organizes great events outside of school.

I have to give the Academy kudos. I made the mistake of transferring my son in 6th grade (this year) to Stargate. I thought Stargate would be be so much better than the Academy. I was wrong. My son was in the GT program at the Academy. In 3rd grade he was placed in a 5th grade math class (my thanks to Mrs. Laughlin). Last year in 5th grade he actually completed Algebra 1 at the Academy. We decided to move him to Stargate thinking it would be a better fit. However, Stargate does not teach to the child's needs only to their curriculim. My son is now taking pre-algebra because they can't won't move him to the middle school for math. He is bored to death. They act like he's the first kid there who can perform above grade level and this is a gifted school where you need a high IQ to attend. It's ridiculous. We are now looking to move our son back to the Academy for 7th grade. He lost a whole year of math knowledge at Stargate.

We love this school! Our daughter is in kindergarten and we are thrilled with the high standards, love and logic behavior philosophy and the character building lessons of core knowledge. I will say that this school is intense both for the parents and the student, but the result is a child that is gently pushed to her potential instead of lost in the shuffle of your typical school. Because they choose there own lessons and focus on developing the child over test scores, this school probably will never win at CSAP and that is simply a choice each parent needs to make.

The high school is fantastic. My son had to transfer in as a senior and was warmly welcomed by students and staff. Every room has a SMART board. The teachers seem to meet the kids where they are at. I am impressed. The football program is TOP NOTCH and highly recommended. Have not had any problems with dress code, high schoolers don't wear uniforms, but normal dress seems fine. I highly recommend, especially high school. The teachers WANT you to go to college. The parents are fantastic.

I just wanted to say that The Academy has been around for 17 years now, so the former student complaining about things from its beginnings needs to know that things are MUCH different now!

Both of my children attend the Academy and we love the high expectations that the school and each of the teachers hold. As parents we desire for our children to grow to be responsible citizens which will give them confidence to reach for anything they desire in their lives. The core curriculum, excellent reading program and character development are a few of the highlights for our family. Our children are encouraged to be individuals and yet still learn to function in group settings because this will be how their entire lives are structured in the adult world.

I love this school. My wife attended the school when she was a senior and two of our children go there now. The only problem I have is Mrs. Lurvey. She doesn't listen and she is not helpful at all. We had a major problem last year and she said that her main priority was 'to defend the teachers'. Really? See here I thought it was to educate our children? Replace her and this school would be doing a lot better.

Overall I'm glad we made the switch to the Academy 2 years ago. The curriculum is awesome, my kids are reading 2-3 year above their grade level, and writing good solid stories with details is required as early as kindergarten. The teachers are awesome and even took an active part in helping my socially awkward daughter 'fit' in. They are encouraging, and communicate well with the parents. Sometimes more attention is put on the dress code vs learning. I got a phone call that I needed to replace my daughters broke belt during my lunch break. I thought this was totally absurd and asked to speak with the principal. The matter was solved without it going to that level, but the fact that I was contacted at all made me wonder if the focus was not on teaching but what she was wearing. The uniform policy needs to be revamped.

My children are in Secondary school. I like the dress code. I also like that teachers are not afraid to give students failing grades. The sports programs are very good. Going to a small school gives my children opportunities to participate where they may not have had at a larger school. I like the smaller classrooms. My only complaint is that some of the teachers don't have a lot of experience. I would give it an five star rating for more experienced teachers. However, this is also one of the things I love about the school. There are many young, enthusiastic teachers.

This is our first year at the Academy and I am so impressed! Just the communication alone is so different from any schools our friends attend. The curriculum and character education is just something that would not happen in our neighborhood school (about a block from our house). I cannot believe the writing/reading/spelling they are doing at the kindergarten level. It was a difficult decision not going to our neighborhood public school, but I am so grateful that we tried the Academy. We were very lucky to get in and my son is doing so well and he loves it! The future looks extremely promising for this school.

I love ACS & defend this school fiercly when others have negative things to say about it. Currently, there are more kids on the waiting list than there are enrolled! They must be doing something right! If you don't like it there, you need to take your kids out immediately & make room for someone else that desperately wants in, instead of complaining & trying to change something that the majority loves. I've tried our local elementary school down the street & even attempted home-schooling for a couple of years. I never thought I could be so happy in a public school. It is like getting a private-school education without the outrageous tuition. We've built lasting relationships with other ACS families & I'm thrilled that all of my children will be attending school on the same campus all the way from kindergaren through 12th grade graduation! It's simply awesome!

I have two children that attend the Academy and I am extremely happy with the school. The curriculum is similar to private schools. It is very rigorous and challenging. The school does have a few small issues with being able to provide extra methods of teaching to the GT children. The elementary is incredible and has great teachers. The administration understands the parent s wants and needs. The school has remained on its path to academic excellence. I will have a child moving to secondary in the next two years and look forward to pushing the administration and teaching staff to uphold the standards that the elementary has set in place.

I am very impressed with this school. The academic program is very challenging and the children also learn a great deal about respect. More importantly the teachers allow each student to progress at their own pace. In addition the school has an excellent arts program. The art and music classes are great and my elementary age daughter has an opportunity to be in a play with students of all ages. Truly unique.

It's nice knowing that my kids don't have to deal with the distraction of kids or their parents who don't care about their education. It's great seeing how involved and committed the parents at the school are. Being a smaller school has it's disadvantages for the extracurricular activities and sports, but they try and do the best they can and are always striving to improve them.

my son has gone to this school for 5 years. To begin with it was great. But through it's growth the cirriculum has suffered. I will be pulling my son out becuase he is simply not being taught. I am very sad at how this school has drastically declined over the last few years. I would recomment staying away from this school. The way they deal with bully problems is a joke. There is no follow through. The children suffer becuase of it.

In general we like this school. Our daughter has been there six years and will graduate in 2005. Some administration and teachers are weak. Open mindedness is a problem. The new principal, Mr. Sheehan, is great. He is really making strides to improve the school and communication with parents. The curriculum is not as rigorous as we had hoped but it's not terrible either. In general we would reccommend the school because it is smaller and has a safer emotional feel than some schools.
