American Leadership Academy is a great school. Their highest priority for their students is encouraging personable values such as respect, charity, and leadership; along with academics. Teachers there noticeably love their jobs which makes all the difference, when trying to learn from. I totally recommended this School to future high schoolers, because I know they'll have a great experience!

My experience with American Leadership Academy has been a great and positive experience. Making the switch from a public school to a charter school has been one of the best decisions I have made, because of the increased positive environment, leadership skills I have learned, and the investment all my teachers have had on my school experience.
At ALA, every Wednesday there is a leadership lesson to better understand one of the five leadership traits, the R.A.I.S.E values. Respect, Accountability, Integrity, Service, and Excellence are important factors to incorporate into a student's high school day, I have learned to become a leader a day at a time. My teachers also have an impact on my school experience and are passionate on what they teach about. They care for the education of their students and I can learn a lot easier. ALA is a wonderful school that has helped me become my best self through its environment, teachers, and leadership values I have learned so much from.
American leadership academy is a school in Queen Creek Arizona that has great facilities but could use some help with its academic policies. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that we have the highest teacher turnover rate in the state, with our average teacher only staying for two years. Whether this has to do with salary or policy I'm not certain, but the fact is that it is a problem. By the time teachers begin to figure things out... they're gone. I have personal experience with this oh so interesting phenomenon:/ However, I love the track and field program and the coaching staff!
