ACND is a gem in the heart of Miami. It has provided a excellent college preparatory education for my children in competitive and compassionate environment. My children have excelled in their academic, athletic and spiritual endeavors. Please check out this wonderful school, where each child is noticed and respected.

I really think that this is a wonderful school, where everyone knows everyone else. The level of parent participation is high. I would say that the only drawback is lack of a visual arts program.

This school is the best kept secret in Miami! Speaking as a parent whose son graduated two years ago to go onto a a college ranked in the top 15 in the nation, I cannnot say enough good things about the school. It is proof that all the fanciest bells and whistles are not necessary for what really matters in the formation of young adults. Visit this rare, diverse, warm, empowering school. You will not be sorry.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
