With the advent of Singapore math, the new integrated science program and the focus on STEM, all in the upcoming 2013-2014 academic year, this school will continue to outpace Dunlap and Washington Gifted in providing a superior education.

PA is a wonderful school. My son has been at PA since 6th grade. It is wonderful because it provides a learning environment for different learning styles. The teachers truly care about the students and are willing to help the students. It is the only school I have seen where teachers stay until 5pm ...  Read more
