    "This school is absolutely not what I was lead to believe when I when in and spoke the Mrs. Espinoza. The education what my child was supposed to receive was changed at the drop of a hat. Now how is my child supposed to get the education that I was promised from Mrs. Espinoza. As a principal I am wondering how she can just go and change what the students learned one day to the next. It is no wonder why the school has dropped to a "C" rated school. Not to mention how Mrs. Espinoza lets the teachers go after 3 years. This year she started with all new teachers except 2 which started mid year last year. The disorganization of the school is terrible, but how is anything supposed to be organized when you can keep the same staff year after year. I have seen the rudeness that Mrs. Espinoza treats her staff, students, and parents. This is completely unacceptable!!! As a parent if I have a question I expect to be able to be spoken to with the respect that I show towards Mrs. Espinoza. She needs to step back and look at how she treats people. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I feel sorry for any parent that is enrolling their student in Academy or Positive Learning."

    "This school is not what I was told it would be. Mrs. Espinoza makes everything sound so great the first time that you go in to see the school. She promises that she will help your child. I have not seen my child excel in any, shape, or form and it is very frustrating as a parent not to mention how frustrated my student when they come home and needs s well you need to help. You ask them if the teachers explained the work to them and you here no because I was pulled out of the class to take some test and then the teacher says that you need to ask a team mate. Well in my opinion the student is asking the teacher who gets paid to explain the work to the students. What if the student that your student asks does also not understand then your child fails and still never learns the proper way to complete the assignment. I also have seen Mrs. Espinoza be SO RUDE to her staff, students and parents. I do not know about anyone else but I know that I deserve complete respect that I give to Mrs. Espinoza and I know that the students also deserve respect 100%. She is very unprofessional. It is no wonder that her school dropped to a "C" rated school when you treat your teachers like that. GoodLuck"

    "You get what you put into it. Ms. E. tries to give her students a huge experience from a small school. She works constantly to give her students great opportunities as they move forward. She always has time to answer your questions, My child continues to do well at AFPL and loves the school. Be involved - be successful."

    "It's pretty suspicious how so many reviews came in on the same posted date. I'm willing to bet many of these reviews are falsely created by Principal Espinoza. This isn't a well run school and the teachers only do enough to maintain their jobs since they're unable to speak up."

    "Academy for Positive Learning is constructed by the interests and needs of students. Students interests is very well managedan outstanding perspective... At A4PL students discover understandings and potentials that drive their success in new fields of education yet to come. As a parent I would not doubt of the effectiveness or sucess my kids can achieve in this safe one on one type of learning experience. Teachers do work hard and the principal gives her life to education."
