I have two children who differ in personality and approach to academics and both have thrived and grown at ACS. We have been a part of the ACS family for a long time. Both of my children started at ACS in PreK and one is now a junior in high school. My high school child was well prepared for life

This school does not meet its mission statement or act as an extension of our church community. It is for a small group (the principal says "college bound") only -- not for any children with any area of struggle. My child's class had about 9 boys and about 30 girls -- what happened to the boys? I

I would rate this school without a star at all but I had to click on a star in order to leave a review. I would definitely agree with the post dated on May 28th 2008-which, in my opinion, is very sad being that the same negative information still applies 4-5 years later. The principal attitude is one

When asked if the school accommodate special needs children, she immediately stated that there are schools for special needs kids and all the room is occupied by "typical children". When asked if they would every consider it being it's such a big school, she stated "that's not our area".
