    "This school needs lots of improvements. Most teachers quit there and got fired, all the high school teachers are young. Im just telling you about high school, and the stop light to the school is horrible. You'll wait at least 15 minutes when school starts. They alot of times shut down the school because of the recent conditioning problem (2-3 students passed out) and they closed down another time because of a leaking problem. There once was a flooding. They also had all the lights shut down a couple of times. Its just going down. I mean the staff are great and friendly but the school itself is horrible. there money is going low and they cant print alot of stuff. There also was 2 homeless teachers there!! They need to start fixing these problems. but otherwise a great community. Just needs improvement."

    "My daughter is in the afternoon pre-k program at the academy and she loves it! I have volunteered in the classroom so have seen a full day from start to finish. The teachers are kind and invested in the students but firm when need be. The expectations for behavior are high, but with the direction of the teachers, the kids do very well meeting those expectations. There is a good balance of academics, free play and outdoor play. I am impressed. I also should add that the parents of the children in the classroom are wonderful people. We are looking forward to kindergarten next year!"

    "Alright, as a student you expect me to say that this is a horrible school. But, I'm not going to say that it's horrible. I'm just going to say it needs a lot of improvements. First of all, it is a great school if you are looking for an elementary school. Other than that don't even try. This year students/ parents have been battling the administration constantly about changes that need to be made. One of their big things at The Academy is that they are always improving, making it a college prep school, always trying to help you, promises promises promises... Yet they have about only two A.P. classes, the honors classes are just a name nothing more, and they focus more on test scores more than the individualized student. Also, class sizes are about 30ish students. I was in a classroom with 40 kids and a lot of us had to sit on the floor for about a month because they didn't have enough desks. The school is honestly not big enough to have a 3-12 grade campus. We have too many traveling teachers because there are not enough classrooms. I can list some many other things. However, I don't have space. All I'm saying is if you want to be constantly frustrated, I got the place for you."

    "In regards to the previous post, dated October 23, you must be talking about a different school. Second graders and third graders are not even at the same campus at The Academy...impossible for them to be in the same classes. By the way, your spelling is atrocious. Yes The Academy has faced cuts, as have all other schools. Yes, the American education system is a mess. What hasn't changed however, is the School's stance that their teachers and staff provide extras to keep every kid learning. There are literacy teachers who make sure each student is reading above grade level. The students still get two specials a day: art, music, pe, science, and computers. The character education program emphasizes respect, responsibility, etc. The math curriculum has each kid working at their own level, which also tends to be above grade level. The parents volunteer a ton to help both teachers and students. The PTO has really worked hard to create a sense of community and raise additional funds so that kids aren't off selling stuff like cookie dough. As you can see, we are content with the education our kids are getting."

    "This school is a JOKE!! If your child has any type of a personality, I don't recommend this school. The Pre K program had my child doing things we had been doing with her since she was two. ( color sorting, lace up cards, learning the alphabet, and numbers to name a few.) They have a teacher in the classroom who's only purpose is to walk around with a clip board and write down the bad things every child does. When I asked the teacher for any positives, she had none. It's really not a very loving environment for four year olds! They ask for money in one way or another on a weekly basis ( on top of the tuition we already pay) It's a real disappointment for us, since we have had out child on the waiting list since she was 18 months, and now we have her at home where honestly she is much better off! I wish I could describe with words how much I truly dislike this school."
