    This school failed to meet my expectations. Uniform standards are not adhered to and social cliques are common. Upon transferring my daughter to a public school we discovered she was several credits short of graduation and would need to attend summer school. This was never brought to our attention at any of her student success meetings with Accelerated even when specifically asked. I was truly disappointed.

    This school is great for kids who want to work. The staff is so caring and there to help. They give respect and expect respect in return. What a great option.

    This school has saved my son he was slow at reading. He started at Accelerated in the 5th grade; his 5th and 6th grade teacher gave him the individual attention he needed. Now he has transferred to a College Prep Charter school where is has been on Honor Roll every quarter of his 7th grade year. His GPA was 3.6 every quarter this year. I thank God for Accelerated Achievement Academy's teachers. Accelerated has created a small charter school where students are safe because the staff requires a high code of conduct. Student wear uniforms with removes the class/click politics that make regular public school a nightmare of peer pressure.
