Located in a high poverty area, AAA is a school that teaches 21st Century skills to students from diverse backgrounds. Creativity, confidence, problem-solving, compassion, and initiative are just a few of the championed values at this school. Visit Arts Night at the end of each semester to see the incredible talent and inspiration of the students. The staff are dedicated, thoughtful, highly trained, and friendly.
This school is a joke, hardly any parent involvement, teachers do not communicate with each other nor with the Principle. Teachers have suggested to students that they "drop out" and have told them directly that "they are failures" Teachers don't seem to care or engage themselves seriously with the students. I pulled my children out of the school. Complaints from students have been that the teachers act like teenagers themselves and don't take them seriously. Supposed to teach the arts but don't do a good job going about it. My son was happy to be out of there and is getting way better grades now that he doesn't attend the AAA School.
