I have attended Ariel for 4 years and still attend as an eighth grader. I really enjoy the school because they have a variety of extracurricular activities available. They have many learning opportunities available for students who need more help and students who are not challenged. I really love the school because of the parent involvement. We always have a fundraiser going on at our school. I really love the schol, because it is new and we are connected with Ariel Capital Management(Investment Company). They give us 30, 000 dollars to the pre-k class and alllow it to grow. Then in 6th grade you are allowed to use the money to buy stocks and gain or lose money. At the end of eighth grade, the school teaches us philanthropy and we use the money for that. The remanider is split among the eighth graders.
This is a great environment for students. My children have been attending for an extended period of time and I find the environment quite conducive to learning. I only wish all students had an opportunity to be part of the Ariel experience.
Ariel is a great school. My daughter has been attending ACA since 2001, and I think the school is great. The small environment is superb, and the principal is very much on the level with her students. The way the kids are taught, including the way they teach them to 'think' is in my opinion better that simply directing a child to do and learn a task.
The academics is excellent at Ariel. THey have many extracurriculum activities such as Basketball, softball, football,Imsa, choir, chess, art, drama, investment, poetry club,spanish, and ect. We have a lot of family involvement in our school. Parents are always willing to come up to the school and help. our school is a famly school to me.
My son attended Ariel for preschool and kindergarten. Both of his teachers were superior! He is an excellent reader and thinker. He is currently reading 2nd and some 3rd grade books. He knows how to read all of the basic sight words and also can spell a lot of them. Ariel teachers keep up the good work!
