The principal here is just plain awesome! He really cares about the kids. The teachers are top notch. Our third grade teacher was the best! She made learning fun and she wants to be there. Parent involvement is very good. Parents go above and beyond to help out.

Our second child is entering 4th grade this fall. We love AS. Kurt Nordness is an excellent principal...reacts well to a crisis. Knows all the kids by name. They have good programs for gifted children so they do not get bored.

My son entered Alice Smith below his reading level in 2nd grade, he started 3rd grade at the proper level and began 4th grade above his reading level. The teachers are great.

Excellant school! I have had three children attend this school, and all three have had a wonderful experience there. They are well prepared for middle school and high school. The teachers are fantastic. I highly recommend this school
