This is a great school and having my kids here is one of the best things my wife and I have done. PLEASE NOTICE: "Many bad reviews you see about this school everywhere have something in common: They are all written by the teenagers that go there. As a parent, you know that at their age they do not know what is best for them and all they like to do is complain". PARENTS: Don't like this school?... You can always take your kids somewhere else, It is just as simple as that!

My son has attended Advantage Academy for two years now.He within two years has had two teachers quit leaving him with sub teacher.I received a phone call that the air condition was not working yesterday,so I went to check on my son and have lunch with my son,I was told by the new lady working the front office that I could not only on Wednesday.Not very happy on how the Front office treats the parents.
