This school made my son a good student. At least that's what I thought. The school that my son goes to now is university school nsu in Davie. My son loves it there, he has better grades and more friends. At university school my son isn't bullied. He is currently in third grade. Go u school!

Is not an Excellence School at all, please look for current parents advise before enrolling your child here, Jewish parents rule the school, inaccessible directors, so much homework, kids can not enjoy their afternoons after a long morning journey at school, very poor lunches. Summary: look for another option.

This year my daughter started to struggle in class and once it became a concern the teachers and administration immediately starting working with her and in a very short time her grades started to improve. The teachers at ACES really do care and only want the best for each student. I am so lucky that both of my daughters attend ACES!

The school is good and I am happy with the environment and the communication with the teachers. But I noticed that the students are taking too many tests (my daughter is in second grade and she has had more tests so far than I had in my whole elementary school. The homework is too much too and sometimes confusing with too many papers. Other problem I see is that the school is mainly focused in jewish culture, even the lunch menu is kosher only(and of course expensive) giving the non-jewish parents no other option than packing lunch for our kids.

Less rigid demands om homework (mainly at 3rd grade) is requested so that children have more time to play and develop their creativity and entrepreneurship independently. Please note that the playing of children is built in by evolution. It is an activity to develop skills for survival in e very efficient way.

School is smoothly run. There are some teachers who do not belong in the profession. It just appears that they do not care about the students. The students put up with these teachers because they know it will be a one time shot, but it is ashame that the students have to waste that time learning, well nothing. It always amazes me how a student can get all A's and B's and one D. Is it the student or the teacher?

ACES is an amazing school where the administration and the faculty are dedicated to the children. There is a focus on safety that makes me feel safe sending my child to school. The fact that it's a charter school and the number of students per grade is limited, makes for a "family" environment..

The strength of this school's leadership is greatly overstated. The vast majority of policies and programs practiced today at the school were put in place by previous principal, Dr. Katherine Murphy. While not all programs ran as smoothly as intended over the first few years, the previous administration had a bold vision for ACES which the current leadership seems to lack. Today, creativity and innovation have been sacrificed for short term success and values such as conformity and complacency have become the norm.

You definitely cannot find a better school that ACES. ACES is not your typical public school, not at all. In fact, at first glance, most people mistake the school for being a private school. A warm, nurturing environment, an administration that truly cares and listens to parents' concerns and suggestions, excellent teachers, a SAFE, clean and beautiful campus, small classes, state of the art technology, plenty of extracurricular activities and all the opportunities a parent could want to become involved----this is ACES. I truly believe that it is a privilege to have my children at ACES.

ACES has an excellent academic program that targets all level of learners. The teachers and administration show wonderful professionalism and are always open to suggestions. The school just recently changed administration and the school is running much more smoothly and the teachers and students seem happy to be there. The school has several extracurricular activites. There is basketball, volleyball, after school a sports study, After art program and many others. The parents are very involved in the school and must complete 20 volunteer hours per year per child. There are also parent workshops that are held every early release that correlate with the schools Character education program 'Living Values'. This is a great school and my children love it here!

This school has done a big turnaround since the new administration took over! The school is now living up to it's name...Aventura City of Excellence is truly excellent! The new principal is doing an outstanding job of keeping the students on track because the teachers now want to work there because of her and the students. Hiring the right teachers is what makes a school a great school. Along with the administration, the teachers work long, hard hours because they care about their students. Safety is outstanding as well. They now have volleyball, basketball, and tennis as extracurricular activities...and all of the Friday clubs for elementary students are outstanding. Parent support and the support of the city is also exceptional. Way to go ACES!

We have been part of the school since it opened, and I have to say it is very disappointing. The administration and staff don't care, and don't receive constructive criticism in a very 'nice' manner. My son is receiving extra help from a private setting so that he can better master skills. This is our last year there.

We are very happy in this school! It feels like a private school. The teachers are great, they are always very helpful. My daughter is really happy here and cant think of another place to go to school at. I would like to see more extracurricular activities though. They dont have enough. Other than that, they are great.

I was very disappointed in the quality of education in this school. The ESE program is still in its infancy and children who have special needs are not helped appropriately. I believe that parents could do better for their children by enrolling them in the excellent public schools in this area.

I consider ACES a great school for my child. The teachers have a high qualified academic level, they treat children with respect and discipline and at the same time are very concerned about teaching values which is very important. From our point of view ACES is an A school.

I love this school. Like any other new school, they are just starting off and I think the kinks are in the process of getting ironed out. The teachers that I've had contact with are very supportive, encouraging and caring.
