AIES is really one of the best schools in Colorado Springs. Beyond the test scores, which are solid, the IB program promotes diversity and kindness. Unlike another elementary school of the classical nature, AIES does not relay on some false sense of entitlement but stands on its merit, its IB curriculum and its wonder teachers. AIES promotes a love for our nation but allows the kids to understand we need to work with others in this world. The kids are given the foundation to live in a 21st Century world instead of teaching some outdated pretentious writing styles and the learning of dead languages. Great job earning the A rating on niche.com AIES!

We've had 4 kids attend this school. I love the French immersion program. I love that they will work with advanced kids without having to bump them to another grade. Amazing and caring teachers and staff. Love the after school clubs, science fair, and the crown jewel, the International Tour Day where kids get to "travel" to other countries. Because it is an IB school I think is why we also have many different nationalities and cultures represented in my kids classroom, which is wonderful! Only thing I didn't comment on was food; we never buy school lunch. Facility does have 2 portable classroom buildings. One child has had classes out there 3 times, but says they are warm in the winter and cool when it's hot outside, plus these also have bathrooms attached so that's convenient.
