ASA is the best elementary school in the Beaverton area. When our first child was nearing kindergarten age, we looked at all the primary schools in Beaverton. ASA was the most appealing, with its excellent student/teacher ratio, its superb Montessori Preschool and Kindergarten, its approach to educating the whole person, engaging staff, healthy Christian atmosphere, affordable tuition, and real sense of community. The ASA student body is multiethnic, and parents of various faiths send their children to the school. All 4 of my school-aged children attend ASA now, and I have no reservations about recommending the school. My preschooler identifies the continents, my Kindergartener reads Dr. Seuss, my second grader writes 5-page stories and my third grader knows how to conjugate verbs in Latin and. That's ASA. The only drawback to the school, to my mind, is that it currently only teaches classes through the 4th grade. But it's still a young school, and there are plans to add a grade for the 2014-2015 school year. All in all, I couldn't imagine sending my children anywhere else.
