I have never worked with such amazing and dedicated students and parents. My job is terrific. I feel like I come in and make a difference everyday. I have excellent resources, proven curriculum and supportive administration and parents. I have worked in another highly rated district, as well as Denver's ...  Read more

My kids are at American Academy's new Parker campus. We absolutely love it - such an improvement over our neighborhood school! They are thriving with the challenging curriculum and ability grouping. We are very impressed with the leadership and staff. Can't say enough about this wonderful school!

My kids LOVE this school! Been at AA since 2008. Both of my kids have had exceptional teachers every year. My son went from being in supported reading and math in kindie to being in grade level math and advanced reading. His testing scores show he's advanced in all subjects. My daughter has been ...  Read more

I couldn't have found a better school for my children several years ago. They were terribly bored at one of the neighborhood public schools. We opted to join the AA family when the school was still located in Lone Tree. My kids have graduated AA by now. They have had the best preparation for High School ...  Read more

This school implements ability groupings in a more effective way than I have seen at another local school that claimed that to be a strength. This school integrates technology across its curriculum, truly accelerating learning and preparing students for our changing world. This school embraces excellence ...  Read more

Really great school! When my older son transferred in to AA, he was behind in some writing skills and had to work hard to catch up (yes, even in 1st grade). I blame that mostly on the fact that even in kindergarten, this school challenges the kids to really learn and grow. My younger son started here ...  Read more

I am overall very happy with our school! My children are very different academically and I am so pleased that they have ability grouping. The one thing that I am not happy about is transportation for student field trips. I believe that the students should be riding a bus to a field trip not in someone's ...  Read more

Sadly this school has changed so much in the past few years, for the worse! Since the current head of school (can't be called principal because she has no background in education and forcefully pushed out the principal who was loved) took over the school has lost sight of its mission. Love of learning ...  Read more

This school tries their best to push out children with special needs. They ignore bullying issues and favoritism lies with the children whose parents contribute the most money to their fundraising. The principal does not have any education background and does not bother attending IEP meetings- nor ...  Read more

Stay away from this school if you have common sense. The teachers assign worksheets non-stop instead of hands-on, involved teaching. My daughter in kindergarten comes home with 3-4 worksheets a night for homework in Math and 1 hour of Reading worksheets, as well. The work doesn't get graded in a timely ...  Read more
