This school is not the place to bed they are rude and only in it for the money teachers try to build friendships.
Great school! The teachers are great and caring. Classes are challenging, and my kids love it.
If you want to go your child to go here think long and hard . Keep your kids in public school. High turn over for teachers. No consistency and if your child struggles in a subject forget it . No diversity for children either
Ala was the worst thing we could have done for our daughter. The school has a high teacher turn over rate .in 3 years she never had a teacher for a whole year. Most years it was 2 or three teachers.if you have a special needs child forget it .she has dyslexia and was in the iep programs .they cannot keep teachers in place she has had as many as 3 per year.after several meetings and phone calls we were forced to pull her out .they have no desire to follow the state mandate for this program.I will be reporting them to the state .they do not have any accreditation at all .and yet claim to be an a rated school .what a joke ! I guss its only if your kid is in advanced classes.I would hope that parents with speclial needs look at all of the reviews on them.
