The lower campus is great. Once your child reaches middle school it goes down! They treat the kids like they are in military. They aren't allowed to talk to each other, and the emphasize more on what the kids being "dressed for success" which is a front. They not worried about the kids education at all.

The African Centered Educational Collegiate Campus is a wonderful school in the heart of KC that speaks to the core of its scholars. The administrative and professors expectations for the scholars is excellance and failure is not an option. Tne Nguzo Saba is alive in the halls and the hearts of the ACE family.
