    I have twin daughters in the advanced Kindergarten class and I think this school is wonderful. Communication between the school/teachers and parents is so fluid it's sometimes can be a bit much. Also I was surprised by how challenging my daughters' homework is even though I worried that they should skip Kindergarten at the beginning of the year since they already knew how to read write and count to 100. The principal and administration is highly visible and accessible. Choice of extracurriculars could be better but they continue to add more choices. My daughters use current technology in their classes and learn through different media (video print computer games hands-on). I think NBAE is doing a great job with these students and I look forward to continued improvements in the coming years.

    I'm glad the previous proster who claims they were a former teacher here didn't teach MY child! Great grammar ("to" kind instead of "too" kind)! Most if not all now are certified teachers just like in regular public schools. If they were so worried about charters being "union busters" why did they take the job here in the first place? This former teacher sounds very bitter. Maybe he/she was given the boot because he/she wasn't up to par of what NBAE really does require of it's teachers? We've been very happy here for years now but this year has been the BEST. New Principal this year came from a public middle school and is doing a fabulous job! I know our child is either on par or ahead of her counterparts in Millenium and is actually LIKES school so it true...what more can a parent ask?

    As a former teacher Ill say that a 1 star is to kind. The administration doesnt support the teachers at all. Great union busters charter schools have become. This school is the leader. With an exceptionaly high turnover rate one wonders if the principal is smart enough to tell the difference between a great teacher and a bad one because so many have been pushed out the door. The classes are overcrowded. They exceed the public school mandate actually. The classes are loaded up with level 1 and 2 performers. The adm. has unqualified teachers instructing ese students.

    What a difference a year makes from the last review seen here! Although communication still could use some improvement everything else about the school is FABULOUS! Okay so there's not a zillion extra-curricular activites to choose from but there are some and they are adding more each year. Meanwhile their focus on education is doing its job. With both the staff and the students happy what more can a parent ask for? Thanks NBAE!

    Communication with parents is poor. They don't seem organized. Office staff not friendly. Lunches are over-priced. No extra activies for the kids.
