    "I could very easily write a bland review and tell you how the school is great and how the curriculum is fantastic. I wouldn't be lying. But I wouldn't be truthful to my experiences at this school. ACPA thrives because it has the strongest community. From the second I walked into the building for the first day of orientation of my ninth grade year in August 2013, I was overwhelmed by the feeling of community. As an introverted 13 year old, I didn't think I belonged. Prior circumstances and experiences left me with very large trust issues and a desire to not let anyone else in. I thought that I was alone and that people were only out to hurt me. At our school, the mascot is a Griffin. But to call it a mascot to me discredits it's meaning. The griffin is courageous. The Griffin steps out of it's comfort zone. The Griffin helps others in need because the Griffin is humble enough even on a high of success to pass the torch, give a helping hand, lift up the next generation and show the young ones what it means to be a griffin. Throughout my experience so far at ACPA, I've met people that have helped raise me into a wonderful Griffin. I never regret helping a younger student. I know from experience that adolescence is a tough time and I know that if I can help even a few people through high school, to gain their courage, to recognize and tap into their talents, then I have left a legacy but more importantly, I have raised a new generation of Griffins and taught them to pay it forward. That is the most valuable part of a Griffin. That is what places ACPA above the rest. Academia is just as rigorous as the work we do to form a community of moral, intellectual, upstanding human beings. Teachers are hands-on and go the extra mile to make it worthwhile. I was a very different man three years ago and I will never be able to repay the teachers for everything they've done to help me grow, from math to people skills. Please send your students here. It's a life-changing experience."

    "The teachers expect excellence from the students in every aspect of us, from physical health to our emotional and mental attitude. They'll push these expectations at us constantly during what the students call "lectures" but really they are just moments for when the teachers express their care or concern for the students. Furthermore, they will always have a reason for the things they do in and out of class. Every action can be justified with evidence. It allows the students to trust the teachers and shows that they do put thought into their choices."

    "All of the teachers are very dedicated to teaching with a modern approach and with a well planned curriculum. The teachers have a wealth of knowledge and dont just focus on the academic but on the whole student. They challenge and encourage growth and maturity. They support the students to really dig deep into themselves and find that worth and sense of pride. Also using the community as a learning lab has been very exciting to the kids and at times the students do give back to our local community in service to others. Report cards have both compliments and if any concerns they are addressed as well. I feel the teachers are open and do communicate well with parents and students."

    "ACPA helped me be able to transition to independent college life with little difficulty. My experiences with the Financial Face Off helped me manage my money and invest wisely. My work as a manager at the Cool Cactus helped me get a job once I arrived at my college. Study techniques that I learned from Mrs. Mendoza's english class (eg., dialectic journal) not only helped me succeed as a student, but to be a useful source for my professors and classmates. (Seriously, EVERYONE wants my notes because Mrs. Mendoza taught me how to take AWESOME notes!) Without a doubt, I would choose to go to ACPA again because the quality of the lessons always kept me engaged, and the quantity of things I learned still surprises me today. It's really the best prep work you can do as a student transitioning to adulthood."

    "This personally is the best school iv'e gone too. Iv'e learned more at this school than iv'e ever learned than all my other schools combined so far. The community is great, it's a friendly and constructive environment (most of the time) What makes this school unique is the compassion/empathy of the teachers as it seems they truly want us to succeed, and could care less about their paycheck."
