Ms. Docking and Ms. Morgan (my kids' current teachers) are both great! My kids love them and so do we.

Once in a while, it's a bit much, but for the most part it's perfect.

The teachers are deeply involved in helping their students reach their highest potential. They offer real-world, hands-on learning opportunities, such as gardening on the school grounds. A good teacher is one who is emotionally invested in helping children, and not one who is "dialing it in" for the steady paycheck. I haven't met any of the latter among the staff at AALC. They all seem passionate about what they do. I think that speaks volumes about what kind of school this is.

The teachers seem to be very knowledgeable, compassionate, and experienced at AALC. There is always an answer or explanation for what they do & why .

The homework seems to meet the needs of the student and seems to be appropriate.

Since AALC does not focus instruction around numerous, stressful assessments, students have the opportunity to master skills from their level instead of the assessment level. They learn to be persistent because they aren't knocked down by assessments that may not be at their level.

Students get to choose whether they take band. Students choose which enrichment activity they will participate in on Fridays. Students choose to be safeties. There is a lot of choice for students.

Learning is differentiated to meet the needs of ALL students. The common language of the agreements across grade levels helps create the caring environment at AALC.

Freezing. Why not pay for heat? Teachers and staff even know to wear layers as if camping. Terrific teachers. Positive environment for children. Seriously cold and that's just not right.
