Community Rating & Reviews

    AmeriSchools is a school that is extremely child-centered. They look at the needs of each individual student and address their individual needs using research-based instruction. Staff members take the time to get to know their students and their families which creates a "family atmosphere" and promotes a "community of learners". Beyond a doubt the Country Club school community goes above and beyond; always trying to provide quality opportunities for students to participate and succeed in educational and extracurricular activities. In a nutshell "We are Family!"

    This is an honest review I have said this to the school on several occasions and they did not want to hear that a student or parent was not happy they seem to want to surpress that and only put forth a shiny coin instead of admitting they need some polishing. we moved from this school for this exact reason and even my student was happy to be learning and realized how much he did not know. We actually held him back a year upon moving to the new school since he also was a straight A student with no skills to move on to the next grade.

    The primary level classes at AmeriSchools are great - they are very child centered. Unfortunately the academic program as children move through middle school is not very strong. My grandchild who looked like an "A" student on his report card - had much lower AIMS scores than expected and we found he was not prepared for and is struggling in 9th grade. That has been very difficult for him because at AmeriSchools he was always "one of the best". The same for many of his classmates. There have been many staffing changes over the past two years at this school - I hope it improves. They may be very nice people but it is not a strong academic program.

    When I was looking to move my son out of public school and into a more conducive learning environment I turned to Amerischools after a rather lengthy process of looking and comparing seat-based charter schools. I don't think there are any words to describe how wonderful the staff has been how involved they are and how pro-active they are when it comes to the children receiving the supports they need to succeed. I watched my child who was failing in public school bloom into an excellent student who made friends and blossomed in the learning environment. It may be a small campus but the teachers and administrators know each of the children care honestly about them and rejoice in each and every accomplishment. I can't recommend it enough.

    So thankful to have found amerischools! This is the first year that my son enjoys going to school. He loves his teacher and principal (which is a first for him) and comes home actually wanting to get his school work done. This says alot! Great school!!

    I absolutely adored this school! I'm currently in 9th grade and I attended 8th grade I didn't even want to leave the teachers and students are so welcoming I really do recommended this school for everyone.

    My child will not be going to this school in the fall. There were repeated bullying episodes that were not adequately dealt with by the principal. If the school is understaffed at recess and lunch-time why not put a call out for volunteers? But the principal did not seem to be interested in finding a solution to an ongoing problem.

    I love this school.. my daughter had been in this school for two years now and I am very impressed with her development. The teachers are so focused with their student's progress and they make it a point that parents are involved as well. They have a really good principal who shows leadership and good interaction with his students and their parents. The organizes a lot of activities that helps the children not only academically but also improve their self-confidence as well as encourage family bonding...

    My mother always taught me if you have nothing nice to say dont say anything at all. Well here is my review.........................The end.

    I have had more than one child at this school for several years from kinder on up. Everything depends on the teachers interaction with the students. The elemantary grades are great and most likely one of the best around. The upper grades however have much to be desired. There are teachers at this level that are not fit to be in a classroom with children. They really do seem like a group that could not make it in the mainstream so they ended up here. I can only guess that in a school with a better administration the teachers would not be allowed to behave in the manner they do.

    Amerischools has been a great school for my child. I am able to volunteer in my child's classroom frequently so I see how this school functions. The teachers and principal here are friendly and are always smiling. You can tell that the students like to be at school. I am very happy with my child's (and my own) experience at Amerischools.

    Words cant express how pleased I have been with my childs experience at amerischools. This year is my childs third year at this school and he has thrived both academically and socially. Every teacher my child has had has gone above and beyond to make sure he is succeeding (modify homework tutor before and after school communicate with me regularly). The new leadership this year has been outstanding. I knew Mr. Krause as a great teacher at amerischools and he has done a wonderful job as principal this year. Over the past three years amerischools has added many sports and clubs for students to participate in. You can tell that the school is moving in the right direction!

    I have just removed my child from this school. The new principal did not seem concerned at all about the welfare of my child who had been at this school for three years as a high achiever and A student. This year she got a new teacher and was failed in her favorite subject. This is a student that was given a course assignment in the next grade up due to her achievements. A student who got a 97% in math and a 98% in reading nationally on AIMS. The prior trimester this student got all A s taking grade level courses that was one year advance of the child s official grade. Only when the teacher was changed did her grade drop. By a teacher that did not communicate any situation to the child s mother. even though the mother was there volunteering every week. And when I felt I must redraw my child from this school the principal could care less. It seems the level of teachers being brought in are not at previous levels but the children will pay the price.

    I completely DISAGREE with the 2 last reviewers. The principal is superb and cares deeply about the success of each and every child there. The teachers are very dedicated and kind. The best thing about this school is the fact that they treat and speak respectfully to everyone there INCLUDING children. I did not have that experience in TUSD. My son's academic performance has increased three-fold. To that I say thanks AmeriSchools. YOU ROCK!

    I didn't think there could be a worse or more fake principal than the last one but I guess I thought wrong. Poor leadership terrible teachers... in fact the best teachers have all left or been run out which is sad.

  • (3 years ago)

    If I could give this school a zero I would. Granted there are good teachers in every school but they get out shined by their inability to challenge students. I guess this school would be alright if you want your kids to go to daycare all day. barely better than TUSD. look elsewhere.

    I have a daughter in the Kinder class and a son in 3rd grade. Both are having phenomenal years. I appreciate all the effort that is made by Mrs. Richter and Mr. Moisl to design activities that let the kids learn in lots of different ways. I love the ZooPhonics and Handwriting Without Tears programs. My daughter loves her 5th grade reading buddy and I think having students mentor other students is a great idea for all of the kids. I also like the specials that are offered throughout the year. My kids take lessons in chess karate drama dance and art from high quality community instructors. The only thing I am not happy about is the afterschool program. It is alright but not anywhere near the same quality as the rest of the program.

    My son is in the K-1 class this year. I am thrilled with his teachers. They take the time to talk to parents and include them in what their children are learning. his school is organized efficient and open to suggestion from parents. I can't say enough about this school. My son just asked me if he could go there next year because he really likes the school- now that's saying something!

    I've had my daughter in this school for two years now.The staff and all personel associated with the school are of a very professional nature and stand in a class all their own. I would not have my daughter in any other teaching institution than this one.I consider this school to be of the highest quality.

    I can not say enough good things about Amerischool! This is my childrens fist year in shcool and the progroam that they have for K-1st is wonderful. Mrs Richter and Mrs Bushey are the teachers for K-1st and I can honestly say that they really care for each student and really take the time to get to know there students and they give them the one on one time that they need. If they are having a problem with a certian subject they will not stop until the child understands or will find another way to teach the child. Anytime I have had a question they are always willing to answer via email or phone.
