I have been a student at AOA for a while and it is a great school. Everyone gets along, there is no bullying or exclusion. The teachers are very involved and help students at all times and are very good at getting back to emails and questions.

Our child is a new student to AOA, and we are unfortunately disappointed in the whole experience. After very carefully making this decision which included student shadowing, multiple visits with the school administration, and talking to other parents who have children who graduated from AOA, we made
... Read more the choice to send our daughter. Teacher quality is mixed, ranging from experienced to first year teachers. We were drawn to the Fine Arts Dept., and told that both Art and Chorus in Middle School could be taken. Art is essentially about 1 full month of the year, and choir is not a daily basis. The choir instructor is rude and demeaning, and has no place in the field of teaching. The AOA student body is mainly females, especially in the Upper School and Middle School, and many do not treat new students with kindness, respect, or dignity. There is a great deal of bullying at the school which includes exclusion, and the teachers seem to overlook this. It was indicated that courses were smaller in size, however some core classes were over 20 students. Overall, it has not been the experience which AOA strongly promotes. Clearly we regret our decision and will not be returning next year. Read less

I believe Andrews has changed from what made it great as a girls school to one whose only focus is the elementary students. ' The boarding students, who pay quite alot to go there, are ignored by the administration. The Head of School would never call me back when I had an issue to discuss with him.
