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.
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.
