The thing to remember is the terrifc education that your children receive at ACA. The new campus is lovely and the Bowen staff are learning how to better "work" with the buildings everyday!!! They are committed to an accelerated curriculum, high educational standards and focusing on the academic achievement of the students. Every new endeavor has growing pains - accept it and instead focus on ALL that is good!!
My son is very happy attending Arlington Classics Academy. We are very happy with the direction the teachers take and the education he is receiving. We are also excited that they have added 7th and 8th on as well.
Something is drastically wrong with the math program in third and fourth grade. Can't something be done?
This school is wonderful. The classical education my children recieve along with a strong teacher, parent relationship is tops.
My son has just finished seven wonderful years at ACA. He started his first day of kindergarten there, and graduated from 6th grade last Tuesday night. We are so sad ACA does not have a 7th grade yet, but we are so thankful to Mr. Simon, and all of the staff at ACA for making my son's elementary school years memorable, both academically, and socially. We highly recommend Arlington Classics Academy to everyone!
This is a great and academically challenging school. My sons have learned so much and grown so much with the caring staff. I would strongly recommend this school to parents who want to prepare their children for future academic success as well as college
I graduated in 2009. The school is great, & I had a great experience. The school has gotten a lot harder than when I started. The school requires a lot of parent participation, & since of the higher education level, there is a lot more homework than public schools. There are parker uniforms, & and other rules about shoes, socks, belts, leggings, free dress day, etc. I gave this school a 4 instead of a five, because of certain teachers I personally was not a fan of, & some other students would agree. Over all it is a great school.
ACA has yet to disappoint us. I am so pleased with how my kindergartener's year has gone.
ACA is top notch! You cannot go wrong with the exemplary model they have achieved.
ACA is an AWESOME school. We have a higher class of children with less discipline problems. We teach a grade ahead in some subjects. Our parents love to volunteer. We receive a ton of communication from our teachers and other staff members.
Arlington Classics Academy is an accelerated school in which students are immersed in history, science, math, art, spanish and specials. My children love this school and can't wait to go back after summer break. The parents are very involved as well and Mr. Simon is incredible. He cares for each of the children. They all feel special in his eyes. Thank you for the opportunity to brag about our school!
The teachers are caring, the administration responsible, the principle involved, the curriculum challenging and well-rounded.
This school cares about its stufents the teachers want to see them be the best they can be!
ACA is a great school. They challenge this kids and encourage them to do their very best. They do a lot of special projects and this year they even build a solar car. The difference here is the teachers who are the best around, the principal who interacts with each child as if they were his own, the accelerated curriculum, and the parental involvement. The education is better than some private schools. This school was like a dream come true.
ACA is committed to providing a premier learning environment. The fact that ACA students attend this school free of charge provides an amazing opportunity to receive a college prepatory education for those lucky enough to fill one of the few available spots each year. ACA offers the benefits of a private school, without the downside of high tuition costs and the inevitable 'snob factor.'
ACA parents, faculty and students are committed to achieving excellence. The education is outstanding but in addition the school emphasizes the importance of giving to the community!
Arlington Classic Academy strongly believes in educating students and not just teaching them to take standardized tests. The teachers are passionate about the success of the entire student body and make learning fun!
This school provides a wonderfully challenging curriculum and doesn't just teach to the TAKS like most elementary schools. The learning environment is not constantly interrupted by benchmarks and discipline problems.
Arlington Classics Academy had found the formula for bringing a small town community environment to a big metropolitan city. Doing this all the while teaching our wonderful children in a fun and exciting environment earning our school Exemplary status 3 years running. Love ACA!
The education is top of the line. Our children are challenged far beyond there grade level and succeed. The teachers are great and care about the children not only academically but personally. All of the teachers are passionate about what they do. Mr. Simon loves each student and the twinkle in his eyes when he talks about them show it. I can't imagine a better school. Their is wonderful parental involvement which makes all the difference. ACA is the perfect model of what a Charter school should be.
