    AF does NOT provide a great educational experience for children nor does it build on their social or critical thinking skills. Limited Recess lunch and extracurricular activities in additional to behavioral modifications systems makes for our next generation of factory workers and by the time our children are adults robots and computers will be produced for most of those jobs anyway. So what are we really achieving if the gap between the haves and have not's continues to exist? We need future entrepreneurs; scientist and community leaders while the AF Company's main concerns are test scores discipline and private funding.

    My son has been going here since K. I was so excited about the academics and very pleased when I heard that the school is structured. The academic regiment is great. I LOVE IT! 0 tolerance of fighting. Math and reading levels- outstanding. However unfortunately I am not pleased with much else. I don't like the idea that punishing kids seem to be more important than anything else. Kids are not giving much extracurricular activities to run out their energy at all. Rushing them to eat breakfast. BARELY allowing them to socialize with each other. Recess is structured. The color of a shoes lace is deemed more distracting than constantly ripping kids names off of choice charts for every little thing. Silently crying. Not sitting in a 'slant.' Not wanting to read. These are KIDS! I am bothered by the fact that the teachers are as young as me. Some fresh out of college having no prior experiences with children anyway.Especially inner city kids. They don't seem to care that parent have to work. Many parent have lost their jobs from having to go up and sit in class for 3 hours for silly things.I thought it was a lie until I went through it. Im trying to stick It through though. Really am.

    My son has been in this school since first grade. It has a great concept and i love the way someone is at the front door each morning to greet the children. I find that they seem very helpful but this charter school is not for children with any problems. They use a charting system to evaluate behavior. There is no gym no means for the children to play. Everything is done in silence. This is a great school for kids who can sit still all day and have little to no outburst. All the teacher are right out of college and 90% are white and never taught black children.
