I am a grandparent but I take care of my grandchld a lot of the time so I consider myself a parent with the same struggles as anyone else. This year got off rocky because of the wearing the mask and changes. Kids have breathing issues and all. But I have to say they are doing a great job at the school and keeping everyone separate and safe. They love the highschool teachers and the lady who does the young ones as well. It's been a really happy place so far so we are keeping fingers crossed.So far so good!

We are very happy with the school and the teachers. An example of how caring they are. My son's teacher called several times this summer to check up on him and us. It's been a lifesaver for us and seeing him have friends and texting with them has really boosted his confidence. I recommend the program.

I absolutely love this school. My two sons have been attending AMU Prep since the last year and what a difference in their behavior and their learning. Such a caring team of educators. I would highly recommend this school to everyone who has a child with special needs.

I have children who attend this school. It's AMAZING! ...I came from ny and had a son that was in my schools that won fancy awards for no bullying.. I hired education layers and so much more because the school system was failling my son. I moved to fl and did a small private school which they did not believe in dissabiltys, I took my son out and did public school for a year. He had a lot of issues the school didn't get. He has high functioning ADHD, fidgets, forgets and maturity level for socializing is low.. They didn't meet his needs. He went to ace Maria and is doing incredible, they teach different, he finally gets math! And it sticks! They build social skills. There is no bullying because they respect and care.I had another son with Apraxia and he did horrible in public, he is doing so great in age Maria ! ... This school is so different from any other. Their teachers are on the same page as the school and are incredible! You want an amazing school that will change the life's of your kids for the better this is it.. This school has heart!

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
