Never had a bullying issue with my children. The school does not tolerate bullying or disruptive classroom behavior. I do not see the school counselor very involved with the students as much as I would like to see.
My children have been attending this school for 5 years now and we are beyond grateful to have such a wonderful education experience. I love the small school atmosphere with the teachers very caring and attentive to the students. It is truly amazing to go to a school that teaches swimming starting in Kindergarten and with such a fun loving teacher! The only negative points I would stress is that I wish students in elementary were taught Spanish as an elective (instead of chorus), have a stronger athletic program, and that administration wasn't changed every few years. I also feel that sometimes the front office staff isn't very attentive or welcoming. Overall though this truly is an amazing school with phenomenal teachers and student population.
my son is in his second year at ADHUS. loves the school and staff, truly considers himself an "Owl". this staff motivates him, he is in the after school program as and they are a great help with any issues he has with his homework.
I have entered my children in the lottery a few years and found that my daughter's application didn't go through this time. I emailed the address given and visited the school to fix whatever the issue was. The front desk said this happened a lot and suggested using different computers to apply. After no success I called back and was told no one has ever had this problem and I must have done something incorrectly. *This is after the front desk confirmed there was a problem with the application site. After feeling frustrated and sad that no one ever called me back or returned my emails I realized I wouldn't want my children to go to a school with dishonest staff, even about something so evident. So... I'm happy these events let me know about the organization and ethics of the staff.
P.S. tech staff - you're database isn't completely clearing and the names of previously applied children. They are in the wrong table hidden in your system -get QA to find where that is and re-write the code so this doesn't happen to future applicants, (that will not be including my children).
Some of the teachers are horrible and literally hand the kids grades with "bug points". The amount of homework is over the top. We spend at least three hours every night doing homework. Way to much. Very clicky. If you come in late, good luck. You will not become part of the group. They concentrate mostly on math and english so the kids will score well on the national tests. Way overrated and the kids are not very socially adept due to the very small classes. Especially the high school.
