Huntsville Achievement School

Huntsville Achievement School has been impacting students for over fifty years.
HAS is a hidden gem in the Huntsville area for students in grades K-12 that need an educational setting different from the typical public classroom.
At HAS, we realize that "one size fits all" education doesn't work.
We work together with the parents and child to figure out how to best teach our students.
Our curriculum combines directed studies, project, and service learning, and Huntsville Achievement is a fully accredited school. Huntsville Achievement's goal is to help students achieve in the classroom today, so they can thrive in life after school.
We try to help each child develop academic competence and reasoning skills along with a positive self-concept and the ability to cope and be productive in a changing world.

School Notes

  • Huntsville Achievement School works with students with Dyslexia, High Functioning Autism, Aspergers, ADD and ADHD, and at risk students. We also aim to serve students that seek a viable alternative to the public school model. Education isn't one size fits all, and because of this fact, sometimes a child, for one reason or another, is not a good fit at a school. We provide an alternative before the student falls behind. As a small school with a lower student to teacher ratio, we have a greater flexibility to use differentiated instruction. This lets us work with each child's individual learning style to best meet their needs. we will use a combination of directed studies, projects, and service learning to employ a multisensory learning experience proven to increase memory retention.
