Pontiac Academy For Excellence - High School 1

As of this year a new superintendent has taken over the district. Since she has come on board she has let most of the good teachers leave and fired some of the other great ones! This school has been heading in the right direction for the last four years, I don't understand what she is thinking; or if she is thinking at all! This school is heading downwards, get your kids out now!

I just enrolled my son to this school this year..and i dont really know anything about it much. But my son says that his teacher yells alot at them as well as criticize them for just one little thing. I mean why dont the teacher come to me as a parent and talk to me about my son's behavior unless he wasn't doing anything wrong at all!!! Above all, my son is only in kindergarten!! so please tell me, should i just transfer out?

The faculty and staff are dedicated to the education and nuturing of a community of children that are eager to learn. I love working here, being a parent of students here and watching the tremendous growth that happens inside the walls of PAE everyday!

Mr Brilhart is an excellent principal. He leads in all areas of a great education. He offers the students opportunities to set goals, receive recognition and keeps the teachers involved to reporting successful students for special recognition by him, I am happy and please that my granddaughters are a part of such an encouraging and focused school environment. The teachers are available to discuss any issues.

I am a teacher at PAE, and we work extremely hard to provide the best education possible to the students we serve. There is no perfect school, but PAE comes close. Teachers take from their own homes to help the students, as well as their families. We are here for the students and not the paycheck.

I have had my 2 sons in this school from the beginning. My son is in the band. He also gets special education. My youngest son got top meap scores this year in his third grade class. I go to all the events , getting ready for the parent empowerment today can't wait for that. Teachers are great. Mr Evans is wonderful. Mr Jackson is great! No complaints here.

In my opinion so far this is a great school for you child to attend, the staff and teachers are great w/the children. My daughters Teacher was absolutely great. That may of only been Kindergarden, but she also attended Headstart in a seperate part of the building(not PAE) that was good too. My experience w/the school is great, everyone is freindly towards me, and whom ever comes w/me to pick up my daughter as well as my daughter and the other lil girl I pick up. It's very clean, safe and seems to be a great learning environment. As well the teachers seem to be there for more than just a paycheck. At least the ones I've encountered there. A safer parking lot to.
