I have decided to pull my children out of this school after being there over 3 years. It has been declining since the start. If you are not part of the "family" run facility then you and your children are dirt. The focus has shifted from the children to money. Every week they are asking for money for something. If I had money I would have sent them to a private school. They lie about placing your children academically where they belong and hold them back in some way. I am not the only parent who feels that way. Example there were split grade levels a few years ago..example 5/6 grade. So the children in 5th grade who were advanced learned from the 6th grade books. The next year those same students got the "joy" of learning everything again from the SAME books. They were supposed to take out those students and give them more to do, individual instruction, etc. But NEVER DID. And then there is what they did with academically with my disabled child...
Inefficien, bias, and unsatisfactory. I am not happy with this school. I went to this school for two years and was pulled out because it was so bad. Every single person that I know who attended AATF says it was a horrible school. Everyone hated it. You don't just need to listen to the parents, actually listen to the students who went there and had to experience it. I would not be able to have excelled the way I now do in school if I had not been pulled out. The teachers are inconsiderate as well. One of my teachers (math) used the word "stupid" to describe me to my parents, in front of me! What a coincidence that I entered 7th grade and skipping grade level math and moving to 8th grade math. I am now a high school student in Honors and AP classes, as well as a recipient of the Academic Scholars Award. Because of AATF? I think not. Only because I was pulled out.
Their attentiveness to the children and thier success is bar none. They delivered for my child far beyond my expectations.
Our grandchildren attend the Academy. We feel, along with their parents, that they are getting a quality education.
Academy at the Farm supports children with learning disabilities and children with autism. The teachers and support staff invest hours beyond their normal work day, including weekends, to prepare lesson plans and an environment that is conducive to learning.
Best school in the nation!!! Fully qualified teachers that instill great values in our kids! A++
The Academy fosters not only great academic ethics it also teaches the students to treat everyonewith kindness. The special needs students are always treated with great respect and love by the staff and student body. Even after students move on to high school, that continues to be present.
They are very involved with the communities that they serve. In addition, it's all about the students. Everyone working there is committed to excellence.
Academy at the Farm is more than just a school, it is a way of life. We are an inclusive school where ESE students are mainstreamed into every classroom- from kindergarten through middle school. Academy at the Farm is one big family where no child is left behind or made to feel 'different'. Each and every child is given the opportunity to do their best and praised each step of the way!
Why do you love Academy at the Farm? We know several children in school receiving a good education at the Farm.
Students are allowed to progress in areas that they excel in while still staying with their age group. For example a 2nd grade student attending 3rd grade math glass.
We love Academy at the Farm for their excellence in education standards, the caring teachers and staff who work very hard to ensure our childrens education and safety are top priority. The devotion and energy is beyond the standards of even the most elite schools!
All of the teachers and staff do an excellent job with the children. Dr. Rom (the principal) sets an amazing example as the leader of the school. You can see that hey truly cares about each and every child. I looked at tons of schools before I decided on Academy at the Farm, and I am very pleased with my decision.
Our kids are enjoying every aspect of their educational experience at Academy at the Farm.
AATF is a small charter school with around 400 students set in a wonderful natural setting where the students come first. The teachers are more than dedicated. My family feels truly blessed that our child is able to attend.
What a tremendous school where the Director, teachers & faculty do more than teacher...they put the children & their education above all else & make daily sacrifices to ensure the very best for our kids... We couldn't ask for a better learning & life experience for our children.
