    "Both my boys love going to school at Academy. One is in 4th and one in 1st. Both started in Kinder there. I like that they stay with the same teacher for 2 years in K-3. All teachers and staff have always been friendly and helpful. They have great music, spanish, art, and PE programs/teacers. I know getting familiar with Spanish all through elementary is really going to help them later if they take it in High School. Oh, and you don't have to camp out to get your kid in anymore, so don't be scared by some of the earliest reviews! Now you apply online at a particular date/time and they fill the open spots in the order your app is entered online. There are steps you have to take before that though so visit the school or website for that info. The parent involvement is very high and each family must do at least 10 hrs of volunteering, but even if you work there are opportunities for getting it done. The other main thing is there is no bus service, so you have to provide transportation. The brain based teaching is great and I think it gives the teachers more freedom to really get the kids learning."

    "I LOVE this school! The teachers are wonderful and so hands on. If your child is behind in any subject they pull them out of class for one on one tutoring."

    "If you like a vice principal that never smiles and doesn't acknowledge you even when you say hello and and an office staff that glares at you when you come through the door, this school is for you! Not only does this school have it's own brand specific dress code that requires spending tax dollars outside of it's city, the vice principal personally okays if your child's shoes are appropriate. They pride themselves on everything they do, but the place is pretty unorganized. If you want to be an active parent, you are welcome and that may help you get past the unpleasant district employees that make you question if you child is in the right place."
