I recommend and support the Arizona Academy of Science as an exemplary educational institution. I cannot see my child attend any other school. This charter school provides a wonderful academic curriculum with focus on science, math and technology. These subjects are most important to my child in this age of Information Technology. The school campus is beautiful and the class room sizes are small which adds to my child's positive education. The Central location and diversity of the school are very important factors why I entrust my child to attend AZAOS. Every day is exciting for my child who loves her school. She enjoys the staff, her pupils and the challenges that the school provides. Without any reservation, I would recommend AZAOS to anyone.

Like all schools, they have their ups and downs, goods and bad. Arizona Academy of Science and Technology is no different, it's as perfect as its students, its faculty and the parents are. If we as parents all work together and get more involved in our children's education day in and day out and support the teachers and the students and the school itself, we can beat these hard times. The faculty is working day and night to better the students' education, learning experience and with all the "craziness" they still remember to say hello to each and everyone of our children Monday-Friday, weekends as well sometimes. We all have been and still are going through some tough times but if we all gave up now, we not only fail the school, the faculty but most of all, OUR CHILDREN. It takes a positive Community from near or far from a school to succeed. Let's do it together. After 4 years, I believe and have faith in our students, faculty members and us, the parents, AZAOS will prevail.

AZAOS is perfect for my fifth grade son. His home room teacher can tell me, on demand, how he is scoring in every subject. The tech lab has Vex Robotics and Arduino kits. The curriculum is flexible to accommodate the needs of individual students. After toiling through years of public schooling where he was simultaneously bored by the slow pace and overwhelmed by enormous class sizes, my twice-exceptional son is THRIVING and I couldn't be happier.
