    "AFE is not for everyone, but for students who are committed to educational exploration, independent study, and autonomy thrive in this environment."

    "Teachers at AFE are devoted to their students and committed to working with each student individually to meet their unique needs and strengths."
    Topic: Overall Experience | Rating:

    "My experience at this school was a mixed one. My freshman year was the best year of my life, and my teacher was amazing. After he retired, I was switched teachers and it went downhill from there. The teachers and I clashed constantly and one teacher had such a large disdain for me that when I asked her for assistance filling out college applications she told me: "There was no point in applying because you won't get in. You're just not good enough." I was more appalled that this was coming from a professional educator than I was that she had even said it to me. I honestly don't feel as though this school prepared me for the college world in the slightest. If I could do it over again, I don't know if I would go there again."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2013-09-01
    "The overall tone of this school is one of acceptance and its students certainly adhere to that. The student population in itself is quite diverse, with many students coming from very different backgrounds. In my time there I never saw any instances of peer-pressure or discrimination, nor have I heard of any since my graduation. This school, while lacking on many fundamental parts of an educational institution, can certainly pride itself on the accepting nature of its students."

    "Given that this school is an independent study program it is very easy for students to set the intensity of their own studies. I personally chose to challenge myself whenever possible but I knew of a few students that chose to skate by on the minimum amount of effort."
