The teachers are amazing and incredibly dedicated to the students. One teacher (math) I do not love, but every other teacher my children have had are wonderful.

Amount of homework: Just right

The amount of homework is high (6-8 classes with 2-4 hours of homework a night), but it is worth it for my children and myself for them to get the first rate education they are receiving at the Academy for Science and Design.

This school has extremely rigorous academic standards and requirements in order to graduate. All of the students who ultimately succeed at the school do so through a lot of hard work.

99% of the students who attend this school are kind and respectful students. the 1% who are not are not the fault of the school, more the parents who do not instill these traits at home.

ASD holds students accountable for their actions and have a very fair no tolerance academic dishonestly plan in place which all of the students and parents are made aware of.

ASD is a wonderful school that offers students with an interest in STEM the opportunity to pursue a STEM based curriculum. My children have thrived at the school not only academically, but socially as well - they found a place where being nerdy is cool.

Wonderful STEM school, now located in Nashua NH for 450 students in grades 6-12. The students are incredibly gifted and are the best and the brightest. Parental involvement used to be wonderful when it was a smaller school, but has really dropped off now. Many parents still volunteer, but more should.
