Arts Academy Charter School Reviews

My children have truly found a home at AACMS. It is a place where students are free to be, and discover, themselves. The quality of the instruction and performances are superior. The teachers understand the (often right-brain dominant) artistic mind, because they are artists too! The students allow and encourage their classmates to express themselves honestly. Students encourage and support one another in their artistic endeavors. The school is held back only by the limitations of its space and a small number of students who don't truly love their chosen art (e.g. a child who does not actually love to draw will not be a positive presence in a two and half hour art class). When they go on to high school, I'm sure my children will hold fond memories of AACMS and return as alumni for performances and just to visit with their teachers.

I wouldn't have even given one star, that's still to good for them. Students would be better off at a normal school! Teachers and staff have all proven time after time that they DO NOT have the students best interest in mind. It has been a poor experience and in my pinion this school should be shut down. Faculty does not treat the students well, an seem to act like children themselves. I have also witnessed and brought to the attention of staff, that I have seen teachers bullying the students, and nothing was ever done. They seem to make up their own rules as they go, and the rules seem to apply best to benefit the staff, not geared towards fairness for students. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Did I mention horrible. My daughter wanted to go to this school because she wanted to pursue the arts, now she wants nothing to do with it due to her experiences at this school.
