    "Is your kid in elementary school? Go to AFE. Middle school? Go to AFE. High school? Think twice. AFE is a great school in many respects. You'll meet some amazing people. You'll be able to take classes at community college once you're in high school. But if you want to go to a four-year college, I would not recommend AFE. Resources for college are abysmal, and many teachers know nothing about it - Jasmin is the blessed exception. Colleges require you to have taken a certain set of courses to be a competitive applicant. AFE offers very few of these as teacher-led classes, and there are *no grades*. The website claims that only B-quality work and above is given credit, but that's not true. You can get away with a lot. Colleges may know this. AFE is a small school. Resources are limited, but you have freedom to explore and do whatever, even if it isn't conducive to a fruitful future. If that sounds like what you want, I highly recommend it."

    "AFE is not for everyone, but for students who are committed to educational exploration, independent study, and autonomy thrive in this environment."

    "Teachers at AFE are devoted to their students and committed to working with each student individually to meet their unique needs and strengths."

    "Given that this school is an independent study program it is very easy for students to set the intensity of their own studies. I personally chose to challenge myself whenever possible but I knew of a few students that chose to skate by on the minimum amount of effort."

    "This high school does not provide students with any sort of prep for college life. The office officials don't even know how to send away school records. I was even told by a teacher that "it wasn't worth it to apply because you won't get in." I was left to my own devices when it came to college admissions and most students who attend this school either do not go to college or attend community college."
