I am a graduate of ADS and the staff is amazing! Without these people I would not have graduated on time. They devote their time and attention to the students to ensure success. For this I am thankful!!

excellent school! I've heard several ppl say that ADS is not a good school. I have to disagree. We live in Abq and sent our daughter to live with my parents in Alamogordo so that she could go to ADS. The student to teacher ratio can't be beat. My daughter will be graduating on time with honors and will have 21 college credits!

This school did so much for me. I was beginning my junior year when I had transferred over. I had very few credits and was scheduled 2 years behind of my class. The staff at Academy not only developed a plan to have me graduate in December of 2009 but they also convinced me to go to college. Even nearly 2 years after my time in Academy Del Sol when I go to visit, they are still happy to see me and even give me advice on the next step in my continuing academic career.

Academy Del Sol alternative school is an amazing school. i havent gone but a year but the teachers not only care about teaching they care about the students. They arent there just for the pay check they are there to work with every one of the students to get them caught up and we're there because of something that wasn't so good. so thank you mrs carr and the rest of the staff, with out ADS wouldn't be possible

This is the best Schoool i have ever attended! The Faculty and Staff are Friendly, and the curriculim is engaging and quite insightful. I would reccoment this school to any High School student who wants to get ahead, but has a past that keeps them held back.

I was starting my junior year, and didn't even have freshman credits due to my own negligence. At ADS I managed to get enough credits to graduate in my year. The student/teacher ratio made a huge difference. You get more one on one attention, less distraction, and it also made it easier to raise my hand and ask questions. Teachers care about your education and your personal life. If you don't show up, they will call and look for you. They want to know you are doing well in all aspects of your life, and will help you no matter what. Special thanks to Mrs. Dettmer, Mrs. Johnson, and Mr. Martin. I miss you all, and thanks for keeping a sense of humor... it made a huge difference for me.

This school has given me a new outlook on my whole educational career. before i went to ADS, i thought that i would be dead befor i graduated but now i have the ability to live and to succseed. if you ever have trouble, the staff will literally bend over backwards to try and help you. and if you ditch, the principal will hunt you down and drag you in. this school is the best thing to happen to me.

The Administrative Staff and Teachers at Academy del Sol are the BEST! The Academy is so much better than Alamogordo High School because the staff actually care whether the students are learning and will offer one on one assistance if a student is having difficulty. They go the extra mile to show the students that success is a matter of mindset, effort, and persistence. I would recommend ADS to anyone interested in getting a great high school education and preparation for the next level. It was a pleasure working with the staff there and my daughter can't say enough good things about the treatment she received while attending ADS. It was the best thing that ever happened to her.

If anybody in Alamogordo is having trouble going to the High School, then give ADS a chance. I went and instead of graduating lkate for failing my freshman year I got done and graduated one year early. I learned so much more at this school then I have anywhere my whole life.

Academy Del Sol gave me a second chace to complete school and make a better life for myself. The learning atmosphere was very good. All the staff are very knowladgeable about what they teach and help you on anything you might need help on.
