Ann Arbor Academy Reviews
This school is a life-saving place for many kids. My son was depressed with very low self-esteem when in public school because his ADD and processing made him feel like he was 'stupid.' He is far from that and Ann Arbor Academy helped him learn this and so many other things about himself. The school is small, so he has had the lack of peer pressure from a large middle/high school and (contrary to the 3-year-old post below) this has protected him from many things while he has discovered who he is. He has been at the school for four years now and I tear up thinking of what he might have gone through had we not put him here. Just FYI as well - ALL of the IEP support people from the school district praise the school and teachers! They acknowledge that he gets daily support for his ADD/learning needs, far surpassing what he would get in the public school.
This school is phenomenal! We have loved what this school has done for our son's reading and writing skills, as well as his self esteem. He went from not being able to read, and causing trouble, in his former school, to being one of the top readers in his class after returning to the public schools after his time at Ann Arbor Academy. His grades are great, and he has organization skills and can speak up to get what he needs in classes. I highly recommend this school for struggling students.
This has been the best school for my son who struggled with the public schools. The teachers are excellent and the small student numbers works well. It has changed the life of my son.
