My son is a 10th grader at AEF in Davie. He has progressed academically and socially since attending AEF. The staff is a very caring staff. They have worked with us in order to bring out the best in our son. My son feels successful and is on the right track for a successful future.
Your AEF is a WONDERFUL school, always willing to help your child. Our son has done two summer camps and is in his second year in AEF. He has come out of his shell, and loves school. Class sizes are small and teachers can focus on each child needs so they can reach their potential. AEF works on all aspects of learning which includes social and life skills. Saying all that I myself only concern is that academics seem not to always be on top of the list. Rewards are given which are primarily appears are for behavior which is great if you have behavior issue but in my case we need more focus on academics. Parent J.Puricelli
AEF An alternative education school that promotes the difference. The acronym does not at first sight suggest its definition, nor does it reflect the school's mission. AEF is not even the traditional "village" often expected by parents. It takes time to understand and evaluate what makes AEF different than other institutions of its kind. One can only profile the answer in the subtle result that appeases parents' anxiety and shapes pupils' aspirations. AEF's dedicated teaching and support staff has been able to rebuild the "village" no longer found in too many circles. Let's not allow that difference to remain a secret. A better society can flourish from the AEF's experience.
AEF is the best thing that has happened for my children. The school gets it. They REALLY know how to teach them with their learning challenges. Their approach is realistic and prepares children for real life. Both of my children have excelled since starting AEF. Thank you so much, you saved my sanity!
My school is AEF in Davie. I now sending my children for their 2nd year. It has been a great experience for my children. The teachers know how to encourage children to learn new things. My child now wants to go to school and loves to learn. Before my daughter just went to school and they didn't know how to teach math in a way she could learn. Now she will try to do math assignments by herself without her crying and saying I don't understand the assignments because the teacher will sit down with her one on one to explain an assignment she doesn't understand but in regular school she would watch the teacher explain the assignment to the whole class and be very confused. There was never any one on one teaching. She can even have extra help in middle school one a week afterschool being tutored by the teacher to help them understand an assignment they don't understand well.
My son has been attending AEF Schools for 4 years and couldnt be happier. We tried everything from public schools, military schools and even church schools. AEF was the perfect match! They have small classrooms so that all of the students get involved in the lesson. They take a hands on approach of learning that has worked for my son. He now gets A's, helps out when asked and has a ton of friends. AEF is an awesome school!!!
Individualized education plan and behavioral, emotional, and social support and intervention this school truly addresses every aspect of your child's development and educates the whole person not just academics. Every staff member is knowledgeable, understanding and empathetic and they support the whole family while staying focused on the child. So many opportunities have been opened for my child by this school, their staff and their philosophy. Cannot thank them enough!
This is very good school, especially for children finish their day frustrated because they do not adapt to the way public school education. AEF has been the best choice we could do as a family. Today my son has excellent grades and I can say that someone has become satisfied and very happy for their accomplishments.
My son goes to AEF in Davie this is a great school with great student environment with small student to teacher ratios this is my child's third year at this school and I would not change him for anything this school has made a great impact on my child's learning and overall well being he went from a child that refused to go to school and who now loves going to school and the staff are all great and it has been a great experience and I would recommend and refer this school to anyone.
My son has been attending AEF for three years now. This school has benefited him greatly. I cannot say enough good things about the staff teachers and support our family receives. It is a privilege being a member of this family.
My son goes to AEF and has been going there for 11 years, yes now in the 11th grade. This school has been a lifesaver for my son. He has special needs and has done well in the school. The staff and support he gets is the best!!,
Caring and highly qualified professionals that tailor learning to each individual student. Great student environment, small student to teacher ratios, and great communication with parents! Highly recommended!!
My daughter went to Seminole middle school and i was very unhappy with her grades and also lots of drugs and bad companys and most important teachers and staff not too caring and this is the first year in AEF and i have seen a change 100 percent better!! Grades are great and staff really cares! My daughter is happy and i am super happy!!
I am pleased with the progress my daughter is making at AEF. The small class setting provides her with more individualized attention than she received in the public school setting. AEF allows her to progress at her own pace rather than forcing her to learn what she is not ready for. She is already showing progress with her academics which results in a higher self-esteem and better behavior.
The school is a great alternative to public and most private schools if your child is not doing well. They focus on regular academics but also teach organization and social skills. My nephew loves school for the first time ever and has friends.
If you are a parent there now, please be aware the survey you do during conference can be used against you if you rate them with high marks and you are not satisfied at the end. This school is mainly for behavioral children.
This school is horrible! Teachers have been arrested. Abused students and the school doesn't teach all students. Mostly just collects state checks for tuition.
AEF is an excellent school. The children are happy there. The teachers do a great job. The school has EARNED an excellent academic reputation. I m sorry for the parents who have had bad experiences here. That has not been my experience. This is an excellent school and it is because of the commitment as a parent and staff to help my son do well and get good grades, I hear from my son how the teachers are always there, always around, talking with them, encouraging them. As a parent that makes me feel good. I want the school staff to be supportive and attentive to my child. That my son receives a good education, feels comfortable, safe and even happy at his school is the best I could hope for. My best advise for parents who are looking for an alternative education is to do your homework tour the school ask questions , view the web site, trust your instincts .
I am a former student at Kentwood prep. it was a okay school nothing special. I was the first high school graduate and i have to say this school hasn't taught me anything to help me. I am learning more in college then i did in 3 years at this school.This is mostly a behavioral issue school not a school for learning. If your child is high on the autism spectrum scale i wouldn't reccomend this school to you. please choose another school if u can.
This school has done wonders at building back my sons confidence, organizational skills, and just wanting to participate in school activities again. Kentwood's friendly staff truly cares for the well being of the students. The pressure of FCAT was too much for my child and the constant drama with school bullies. Kentwood has this wonderful system called GAG ( Get A Grip). It's amazing and it works.This is my second year as a Kentwood parent. SN
