Great School!!! All around just a great place for children to learn and grow.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted June 1, 2009

I am a second grade teacher at ACS and I am very proud of our school. I attended ACS as a child and I have seen first hand how far ACS has come over the years. Our staff works hard to educate our children to the best of our abilities and we have a variety of academic programs that assist in providing each child with the instruction that they need to be successful. Our school wide behavior program has been an asset to the school as well. The staff, students and parents are aware of all rules, rewards and policies. I would recommend ACS to anyone who wanted to have their child enriched in academics, extra-curricular activities, and a home town school setting.

I have one child that has finished the elementary school and another one in the 3rd grade and I can honestly say I've had no complaints. Both boys are primarly A students, occasional B. My contact with their teachers has always been great.
