This is a great school and having both my kids here is one of the best things my wife and I have done. Many bad reviews you see about this school everywhere have something in common: They are all written by the teenagers that go there. As a parent, you know that at their age most of teenagers all they like to do is complain. Parents: “The best school starts from home” and you really need to be involve in your kid’s life for any school to work out with your kids, don’t just send your kids to school and expect for the teachers to deal with them so that you can turn around and say that is the school’s fault. Still Don't like this school?... You can always take your kids somewhere else, it is just that simple!

While I loved the teachers and people at this school, the school had too many problems for me to consider this a good school. The admin was terrible. The way they treated the teachers was horrible. Leader in Me is an ineffective program. Junior high kids were forced to do hand motions and speeches about the seven habits, it was embarrassing for everyone. We were forced to take a class over it. Our poor teacher didn't even know what to cover. The admin was obsessed with scores and test, it put a lot of stress on the students and teachers. There was also a lack of academic opportunity. No advanced courses, or really any art classes. While I am thankful for the years I spent at this school, and the wonderful students and teachers. The admin is terrible, and overall I had a bad experience.
I attended Advantage Academy my whole high school years and unfortunately it was not my best experience. Although, the friends were great, the education not so much. I remember that every year there was at least one teacher that either quit or got fired, so instead of getting another teacher. We would be stuck with different kinds of substitutes the rest of the year. Another thing, the school didn't exactly get us ready for college. Although, we were able to take dual credit classes our senior year. That was probably the only thing I think they did that was good.
