I was a little concerned choosing a first year charter school over a more established school to handle the education of my son. He is a student who needs more attention than others despite being a very bright kid. When I went to the very first open house and met with the Board of Directors I was sold. There was a group of dedicated professionals who wanted to give back to the community. Most had an impressive educational background, and all were highly educated professionals (PhD s, CPA s, Lawyers, and Architects). I have watched my son improve over the last year with pride and am truly glad for the choice my family made to enroll in AIA. I hope he will continue to grow with the school. I have high expectations for both him and the school, and I am confident they will both achieve great things.
