Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
Submitted by a parent · August 29, 2015
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
Submitted by a parent · August 29, 2015
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.

Develops grit: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · August 29, 2015
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.

Develops respect: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · August 29, 2015
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.
