Educators and policymakers agree: student engagement is one of the most important indicators of future success -- not just academically, but in many other aspects of life as well.
The May 11 event in the On the Journey Speaker Series is an exciting collaboration with our campus partners at the Aspen Music Festival & School. Please RSVP for this intriguing discussion and find out "How Music Can Change Your Brain."
With community the theme for our 2016-17 school year, our newest video features Aardvarks sharing their own insights of what this word means, and how we experience it every day at ACDS.
For practice taking standardized tests, for a check on curriculum delivery, for a snapshot of student performance: ACDS administers the Comprehensive Testing Program Assessment from ERB each spring. It's just one of the many ways we assess student learning.

Commitment to creativity: the arts, an essential part of school life, foster the growing imagination.
