Just joined this school, and it's great.

ACC is an excellent school that utilizes a block schedule. Students enroll in 4 classes at a time and finish classes in half the time of a traditional schedule. This allows students to maximize their course load with desired subjects. For example, a student could take two math classes in one year versus one class in typical curriculums. In addition, the faculty is talented and engaged in student activities. My daughter has felt welcomed to the school from day 1 and has made several friends. I highly recommend the school.
