American Leadership Academy opened the Gilbert campus charter school in 1997 for students in kindergarten through 12th grades. The school is supported through state as well as public education funds; however, it is operated privately. The curriculum is a bit different in that it focuses on mastering and achieving goals set in subject matter, but adds to that a appreciation and recognition of the freedoms found in the United States, the world, and history. The curriculum used in the school is Spalding, Singapore Math, and Shurley English.
Staff and teachers work together with parents to ensure that each child can achieve their goals in school and out via a strong foundation of education as well as interaction with peers, staff, and the community. The school holds personal responsibility and accountability as high standards for both the staff and student body. Students are given as much freedom of expression as possible along with the support needed to accomplish each assignment.
Parents are very impressed with the curriculum that does challenge the students, teachers that go beyond to help students comprehend and attain their goals, and the administration staff that stays abreast of all occurrences in the school.
