53 Parent Reviews for Ace Academy

I often say that if I could design a school for my son, it would look a lot like ACE Academy. They understand the special needs of the gifted and customize the learning experience based on their needs. My son is strong in science/math, but struggles with reading. In a regular school, they would hold ...  Read more

While our son was at a fabulous preschool when he was 3 1/2, he was waking up at 3 a.m. on a regular basis wanting to read or play games, clearly short on the stimulation needed during the day. During his teacher/parent conference, his current teacher at the time recommended we investigate ACE Academy. ...  Read more

ACE has been a wonderful experience for our family. It is amazing to see kids so happy to go to school each day!

We are very happy with ACE Academy. We did ALOT of research. The one and two star ratings seem to come from families who pulled their children out of ACE because it wasn't a good fit. I have read all of the reviews and it mostly sounds like these families should have never enrolled at ACE in the first ...  Read more

I saw a learning sequence in my son s 6th grade classroom in another school where the system gives all the teachers scripts to read, word for word, supposedly to improve quality control. It was on the food web of the Snowy Owl. The number of Snowy Owls in our area was equal to the number of students ...  Read more

There seems to be a good deal of misinformation in some of the other posts. ACE Academy went through a rigorous process of becoming accredited, in which their curricula, qualifications, and student evaluations were all reviewed by an outside committee. Teachers use a combination of resources and base ...  Read more

I'll echo many of the same comments. ACE is an amazing concept and they have great camps, but it fails miserably as a school. They have no curriculum. That's right, no curriculum. So it's entirely up to inexperienced and unsupervised teachers to figure out what and how to teach. They tend to gloss over ...  Read more

The administrators have a good concept, but are lacking in the supportive staff to implement their vision. Be sure to ask about the teacher's qualifications for teaching gifted kids. Many teachers do not have degrees to teach, or an education background. This is something to consider when looking ...  Read more
