Open Quote This is our first year at AACS and so far I am very delighted. This school ranks way higher than my neighborhood school and I am more than willing to make the 25 minute drive to take my son there. He also tells me he likes this school better than his last school. So happy to have my son enrolled here. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
