I am supoosed to trust my children my with liars!!!! The school board needs to consider who they hire!!!!! These are the most unprofessional people I have ever dealt with.


Posted April 21, 2010

Excellent school. Principal is caring and very involved and she and her staff are always helpful and available to discuss and resolve any concerns. The teachers are amazing--they seem to sincerely love what they do and turnover is extremely low though there is a nice mix of young teachers and more experienced staff. Academically, AEMS seems quite competitive with surrounding area schools that have more financial resources. Parent involvement is welcome with very active PTO. All events are well chaperoned! I have 3 chidren with very different needs that have done well and enjoy going to school.

The school is K-8. The principle discourages parent involvement, to the point of 'not allowing' parents to stay at school dances. Dances are held monthly for students in 5th-8th grade. The lights are turned off for slow dances. Academically, the school is mediocre, but it does have excellent class sizes.
