I love the size of the school. The fact that the teachers know all of the students and, in some cases, the parents as well goes a long way in saying 'Stay with us, we appreciate you and your children being here!' Parent involvement is immense and it shows in the kids, test scores and behavior.
The Academie is the perfect size. Small. Each student there can have their needs identified immediately. As a parent you can get to know the other parents and work together. It allows the student to think I can see the world, I can travel, and most important to expand the thoughts of their potential. The academie has so much to offer, it excels in it's teaching the love of learning.
This school is small but awesome. It's possible to know everyone in the school because there are few kids. The thing that isn't so great about this school is that you don't actually have extra curricular activities in school only basketball. You don't dress out during P.E. And when you're in Middle school there there are few kids to interact with, hardly anywhere to change classes to. So when you graduate into Highschool you have to change EVERYTHING from getting used to changing out and changing classes more. When you reach 7th grade, there are only about 20-30 kids in your grade. But I still adore this school for it's capabilty in speaking french throughout the school. You can't exactly join in 2 grade and up because you MUST know french or else you can't understand anything.
