"Most bad reviews you see about this school everywhere have something in common: They are all written by the teenagers that go there. As a parent, you know that at their age they do not know what is best for them and all they like to do is complain."

This is a great school and having my kids here is one of the best things my wife and I have done. PLEASE NOTICE: "Many bad reviews you see about this school everywhere have something in common: They are all written by the teenagers that go there. As a parent, you know that at their age they do not know what is best for them and all they like to do is complain". PARENTS: Don't like this school?... You can always take your kids somewhere else, It is just as simple as that!

I went there and even the staff avoided eachother, some "honesty". And as for fairness? You only had fun if you were a teacher's favorite

As a Student at this school from Kindergarten to eighth grade, I can honestly tell you I received an inadequate education coupled with psychotic teachers and staff. A common occurrence at school was us getting nearly hour long talks from a discipline coordinator about how terrible we were because of how loud we would be in the cafeteria. Then, we wouldn't complete class abd we'd get blamee for that also. Not to mention the teachers who had no idea what was going on.

They cannot possibly teach these fine qualities when the staff is doing the opposite. Kids learn by example.



- a parent
This schools staff doesn't act professional or empathetic towards their students. They choose to treat children with disabilities as a behavior problem rather than a disability. The teachers are protected by administration no matter how they behaved. Excuse after excuse is given and nothing in favor of the child.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a parent
Teachers treat students with disabilities as if their disability is a behavioral issue, rather than a legitimate disability. However, they pick and choose the students they mistreat in this way.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a parent
Teachers punish students based on who they like more. They punish students for things they didn't actually see for themselves, and some students are told things like, "I'll believe other students over you."

Amount of homework:
SCHOOL LEADER
Homework is a way for AA scholars to get the practice they need to work toward a high level of rigor in their classroom. In the real world, practice, additional learning, and determination are required for success in life.
