Open Quote This school is designed for gifted and talented students, who have needs for advanced curriculum and specific teaching strategies. AcademyACL is designed as an entire school where every staff member specializes in gifted education. The vision is to create an academic home for advanced and creative learning, cultivate personal and standards-based excellence and leadership ability, and serve as a resource center for the gifted community of the Pikes Peak Region. Many gifted students feel "different," and one of the very best things about this school is that students are with other kids who understand them. Many students come to this school from settings where they felt isolated and excluded, and at AcademyACL they are accepted and able to focus on learning instead of feeling like an outcast. This is a school that walks the talk of providing a safe atmosphere and practices compassion and kindness. 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.
