I have a son who graduated from UAS, he attended UAS from 4th - 12th grade. He graduated with honors and was accepted to one of the top universities in CA. My daughter graduated from UAS attended 2nd to 12th grade and graduated with honors and going to a CA state university also. Now my daughter is attending. High school offers AP classes that are acceptable credits in universities in the US and are as academically rigorous as college courses
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
There are bar-b-ques, carnival and international night activities
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
I think it's a great school, my children had a wonderful experience with their teachers and classmates. The class sizes are intimate and give the children a great sense of meaning and importance in their school in terms of both classes and the school as whole in terms of administration and faculty. I definetely think some of the reviews were negative and most of these comments are from my children themselves.
