My son is attending his 3rd year at Academy Schools. He participates in Rock School (after school music club) and on the Rubik's Team (the school was awarded 2nd place during their first competition in Seattle). Parents are welcoming and advocates for all students not just their own. My son is gifted and on the Autism Spectrum and he is thriving at this school. There is zero tolerance for bullying and teasing. Students exhibiting these behaviors are corrected with apologies to the affected student(s). Can't say the same for our three years experience in public school (1st through 3rd grade). It had its first graduation ceremony last year since becoming accredited. The ceremony cemented our plans to have our son graduate from this school! Such a wholesome environment is priceless and their success will be supported by us even after my son graduates and moves on to college.

Academy Schools is the greatest example of individualized education for every student. Each child is challenged to reach their full potential academically. Each child is given the tools to become successful in, and contribute to the world at large.

Wonderful school for all students. Small class size, dedicated teachers and administration. Children thrive and are pushed to reach their full potential. This is not a ''one size fits all'' school. Exceptional drama, music and art classes. Social skills, music therapy, speech and OT are available as well. We are so glad we found Academy Schools!!
