ANS IS NOT THE BEST SCHOOL!!!! There are other schools that are better than this school, like St. Augustine Prep School. I was a classroom parent, member of the PTO, attended school events, did everything to be part of it and it didn't help at all but forced me to withdraw myself and withdraw my child from the school. ANS is a school that is not acceptable to foreigners and diversity. It should be a school requirement to be a natural born Nicaraguan with a known last name.
