I love this school because I see students becoming successful adults, and young people caring about others, learning to give back to their community and families.

This school has the friendliest, happiest, most encouraging environment of any high school I've ever visited. The teacbers at AHEP work with each student and inspire them to learn. All the kids are enthusiastic about the work they do and feel safe and supported while at school. Plus, the school has an amazing beach view and is on one of the prettiest property pieces in the world. What more could you ask for?

This is an amazing environment for learning. There are far more opportunities that have been available for our children that they just can't find in a public school system. The school is orderly, it really feels like a partnership between parents, children, and the school. Thank you Kim Stamper for all your efforts and I hope continued success with the center!

staff and teachers are excellent. They are didicated to the students and parents, and are easy to work with. The headmaster, Kim Stamper, is one of the finest educators I have ever met.

There is much parent input for education at this school. Students get individual attention, and have access to many experiences that enhance their learning. The certificated teachers that oversee the learning goals have a high interest in the success of each student, and they take the time as needed for each student. Also, with parent involvement, families gain an extended network to help in their individual needs. The school regards music, art, and other extracurricular activities as very important, and offers classes and/or other alternative means to attain these experiences. The students need to be self motivated, but the style of the school helps to excite students to acheive.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
