This school has a stressful feeling as soon as you walk into the office. They expect everyone to fall in line like soldiers. There are not enough adults for students. Many kids get away with terrible things, while others get punished for childish pranks. The staff is always rushing you through and condescending at times. I dread going into this school.

ACMS has wonerful control of students. I never saw any bulling compared to other public city schools. Also it is a green high performence school powered with solar.

This school is a social nightmare run by an extremely liberal staff. They will hug your children and give your child a false sense of security while behind the scenes the administration will gather as much information about your personal life and make it their own crusade to fix whatever does not comply with their ideology.
