Academy for Advanced and Creative Learning Reviews

Academy for Advanced and Creative Learning is a great K-8 charter school that serves the needs of the gifted and talented population. Since this group is often a under-recognized diversity group, this school does a great job in serving their needs. Individualized learning happens on a daily basis. Various curriculums are taught in a playful and interesting way that makes learning fun. I especially like the soothing music in the morning. Assemblies at the end of the week are fun and educational. The principal is very involved and knows pretty much all children by their names.
