I love this school so much! It's a great place to learn and have at the same time! After 9 years I can still say that I have never had a boring day at school. We're always learning new things and there's never nothing to do. The teachers are very helpful, fun, and always know how to help. I will miss it greatly but it was the best school I've ever been to (even if it's the only one)!

AHB is an amazing learning community. For us it has been the perfect mix of academic rigor (challenging each students at their appropriate level) and a warm social-emotional learning environment. The open-ended projects and hands-on learning keep my kids engaged and will serve them well in life after school. Between my two children, over the past 5 years we've experienced life at almost every level of this K-8 school and have found great teachers and learning at every step.

I love it here because my kids are so happy to come to school......even after 4 years, and because the community and the teachers are so warm and welcoming. My kids are working at or above grade levels compared to more traditional schools even though they are at school fewer hours and learning in a very different way, mostly through projects and hands on experience.
