    "The instructional model is for students to spend one week in English, then one in German. This has worked very well for our son's language skills and consequently he understands and speaks German quite well. However, given that the kids are going back and forth between teachers and languages, it is important that they have consistency in other aspects of the classroom. Unfortunately, we have found that there can be a wide variation in the quality of teachers and their respective teaching styles within a cohort, and consequently the kids may have a very good week in one class, then a horrible one the next. Kind of like having Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for teachers. We appreciate the focus on academics, but it is our assessment that their is little effort to see the kids as unique individuals and help them find their potential. I fear that Einstein's focus on conformity and rules produces well-educated children who are unable to think for themselves. Elementary school is a place for children to learn, grow, and understand the world around them. Above all, it must be a nurturing place. Sadly, Einstein's principals and teachers seem to have forgotten this."

    "Both of our kids have been at AEA since Kindergartner. They are now in 2d and 6th grade. AEA has so far offered our kids a strong curriculum that embraces an increasingly complex, global environment for a world that requires an increasingly diverse range of skills, languages and perspectives. This cannot be achieved without a team of very dedicated teachers and staff."

    "Parents should know a few things we didn't upon entering our children into this school: 1. there is no social-emotional program, kids are not taught how to problem solve and show empathy. 2. there is a stoplight (colors, stars, etc) system used in the classrooms beginning in 1st grade; this publicly shames each child into conforming to the teacher's rules (if you get a bully teacher- and they exist here- you're in trouble) 3. The amount of homework increases ridiculously starting very young. If you're ok with the above, then by all means send your child here. I give it the one star because it's in a hip neighborhood and kids do learn another language??!"

    "I have two children going to the school. One is in 5th and the other in the 7th grade. They have been at this school since Kindergarten. I feel very lucky and blessed to have found such a wonderful school. The teachers are kind and supportive, the Principals are approachable and professional. The only draw back is the campus is a bit crowded now due to having to wait on the middle school campus becoming ready for the middle schoolers to move over there. I feel like my children are getting a great education. This is probably one of the best schools in San Diego County, maybe even Southern California. Just my opinion."

    "I really dislike this school. Let me just say this, my son graduated kindergarten not knowing how to write his ABC's. His a very smart kid by natural talent but what he is suppose to be thought in class was obviously not implemented right or he just fell through the cracks of the system. I don't recommend this school, if it wasn't because he already started here and his comfortable with the lay back atmosphere I would take him out."
