Overcrowded and only focused on their results for state evaluated test scores. There is little focus on actual learning - it's all about their standardized test results. Cliquey. Miserable school.

We moved to ASFS shortly after the school year began. The whole process seemed chaotic and a bit disorganized. As a new member to the school community I felt a bit lost. My child was not given adequate support to adjust to a new school and communication between home and school has not been good.

Kindergarten was an amazing experience for my son. He came home reading within a couple of months and now enjoys reading chapter books by the end of the year. I love their approach to creativity, science, and hands on learning. So glad we chose this school!

This is such a wonderful school. All the teachers we've had are competent, passionate, kind and just wonderful. This is our last year at ASFS, and we feel truly blessed to have our son finish his elementary school at ASFS.

I have continued to have issues at this school. The teachers do not care about your kids. They are merely numbers on a sheet with test scores. The administration and academic staff do not accomadate and their is a clique system here. I have had my child here for over 4 years and can not wait until we can find a better, more loving environment where my child can learn and not be put down because she does not fit the "mold". They go to all lengths to fit the 10 rate. Its a fact that all children learn at different pace and we should encourage and teach accordingly, not judge, snare, talk about, or put down our children. It seems like the last 3 high rates were from the very cliques that been spoken about. Good Luck if your child attends this school. You will need it, unless your one of the influential parents a part of the clique with 6 figures and can pay to keep your child "in good" with teachers and staff.
