We absolutely love AAE. My 4 year old can't wait to get to school. The teachers are wonderful. The Dean is fantastic. The academics are unparalleled. I have a background and experience in the field of education. We chose this school because they meet students at their own ability appropriate level and then use visual, kinesthetic, and auditory teaching strategies to help them just soar. The teacher/student ratios are also incredible. We couldn't be happier!!!

As a parent of a 5 yr old attending this school, I could not be happier. The teachers at this school know how to motivate, stimulate and challenge the kids. The kids are exposed to languages, art, music, yoga, and they tailor the lessons to each kids ability. Kudos to the awesome teachers at AAE.
