My son's kindergarten was the only saving grace for this school. I had to take him every day because the county puts K-12 on the same bus. Many kids fall through the cracks here. Don't expect anyone in administration to do anything in a timely manner or return phone calls. Parent involvement in this school is nonexistent. Very sad. I was there almost daily and I saw the way it was. The parents are very much to blame here. The teachers can only do so much. My children no longer go here.

The students, teachers, and staff at ACES are one of a kind!

The teachers and support staff really care about the children at the school. Without them my son would not be where he is now.

I am happy to say that my son no longer attends Amelia County Elementary School. If I knew the environment that he was entering when we moved I never would have moved to the county. I am ashamed of the educational experience he has received.

Well, all 3 of my kids have gone to ACES..one is in 1st grade and I must say for the most part, the teacher DO care and do a great job however, the SOL system isn't the greatest. I agree that it is all rushed but I don't think that is the teachers fault. I also don't like that if I do try to get involved and I express my opinion or give an idea and someone 'in charge' doesn't like it, then it effects my child or children. If someone doesn't like me at the schools..all 3 of them, then they judge my children automatically. That isn't right but other than that, ACES is great!

I am sad to say that my oldest will be leaving ACES for the middle school. ACES has been incredible, from the teachers, principle and assistant principle, to the staff in the office and that ever efficient bus loop/car rider pick up system in the afternoon! It has been a pleasure sending my child to ACES!

I have had nothing but a positive experience with ACES. I think the greatest part is that a big majority of the teacher there I knew or had growing up myself. I know what a difference they made on my life and to see that they are still there for the students who happen to be my children; make me glad. The only problem I have (which may be student or teacher) is that they are given agendas for the purpose I writing down their homework, however, I never see any homework written in them??

I love ACES and think other parents don't know how good their kids have it, the teachers here are so dedicated and are always willing to take time with the kids. It's the parents who need to be more involved. I see the same hanful of parents at all school events and PTA meetings and it's a shame to hear all the complaining but no one wants to help. Let's be real.... teaching doesn't just stop at 3p.m. us as parents need to make ourselves available to help our children too and not depend on teachers to do it all alone. Ps. The school is all about SOL'S because that is what our government says it has to be.

Great School! My children have learned so much. The teachers and staff care and it shows. Amelia Elementary is very open to parent volunteers and involvement.

The staff at ACES is great. The teachers are stuck with teaching SOL's but that is not their fault. My children have learned alot in Amelia that I dont think they would have gotten in a biggger county school.

This school just thinks about sol testings. Dont rush through subjects and the children are lost. The teachers cover the work so they can say it was taught. The poor children dont learn nothing by going through the things within a few days. It is rush, rush ,I went over it stuff so I done my job.
