AmeriSchools Academy opened their Country Club campus in Tucson in 1997 and has on average 210 students enrolled in their kindergarten through 8th grade charter school.
The school offers the basic core classes as most other schools; however, the courses are enhanced offering students the ability to learn skills via an integrative curriculum that does not utilize a grading system and offers multi age instruction. The school also offers testing for the early detection of learning problems and will work with parents to ensure all students receive a quality education.
As you hear from parents with children attending the school, you will notice very different opinions. Some believe the school is not challenging enough at all and only seems to be a building with babysitters, while others enjoy the progress their children have made while attending the school.
AmeriSchools Academy had a recent change in principal, a few years back, which has caused quite a few issues in the staff and the way in which the school is organized. The main complaints have arisen since the new administration was put into place and it seems from talking with parents the school needs to get back on track. On the other hand, some students are excelling and performing at above average but not all parents are happy with the staff at the school.
Some classes such as Science seems to be doing a better than average job with activities like Science Night that truly showed the fun projects students were doing in class and learning at above average levels.
Extracurricular activities available include band, computer arts, drawing, and orchestra. Sports include basketball, P.E. classes, martial arts, and soccer. Special programs include academic contests, newspaper, yearbook, science & technology, and yearbook.
