    "This school has a good curriculum and very smart students. Everyday when I walk down the halls I see kids being bullied. One of my friends is a victim of it and the teachers know, the deans know, and the counselor knows... Nobody has done anything to help him. The deans are also liars! Especially with the parents. My friends and I had to talk to the deans about an issue and we clarified multiple times that our other friend was not involved in any way, shape, or form. The deans blamed the entire thing on her, said that we told them it was her, and gave her a lunch detention. Her father, who was extremely upset, emailed the deans. They told her father she was in no trouble at all, and that she wouldn't be getting a lunch detention. They also promised to talk to her. They never talked to her. And they made her do the detention. He emailed them again after finding out, but they never replied. I would also like to point out that some of the middle school teachers are very bad. The social studies teacher doesn't help you with an assignment. She will give it to you and expect you to do it without help. Over-all, this school is pretty bad. I hope I helped. Sincerely, A Student"

    "Great curriculum especially in science and math. The dean is fantastic, however there is a strange culture of bullying and ignorance that seems to manifest itself at ACS. Glad to have our kids back in a community-base and friendlier school."

    "We pulled our daughter out of this school due to the attitudes of the teachers and staff. They take the role of dictator and do not listen to child or parent ideas/complaints/issues. Her kindergarten teacher told me I needed to use reward and punishment to help her improve in school. That is absolutely the worst way to get kids to love education - especially at such a young age! Bullying seems to get worse every year by the children that are staff 'favorites', so nothing is done to address the issue."

    "Good curriculum Dean and Staff present an atmosphere of entitlement rather than a nurturing and welcoming environment for students. Bullying is an issue at the school and something they have not addressed for years. Unwilling to listen to parents or students concerning this problem. Excited to leave this atmosphere and sorry we allowed our children to attend this school"

    "The academic portion of this school is wonderful, core knowledge is the way to go. Parent involvement is phenomenal! As far as the morale of the school the administration is not very helpful, thoughtful or concerned about the child's full well being, it's like they are just concerned about the bottom line and don't take time to thoroughly hear a parent's concern. I am driving 20 miles to take my children to another charter school that is more willing to hear the concerns, fears, support and suggestions given by the most experienced educator in a childs life, the parent."
