Inspired by the New York Times "Truth is Hard" campaign, Second Graders recently created their own posters about truth in a fascinating writing lesson with teachers Trish and Alexandra.
Project-based learning example: Fourth Graders study electricity in science class, so they worked in teams to create an electric power grid. From tiny houses to solar panels, they connected it all, making sure that each porch light could shine bright. Best of all, it's 100% powered by renewable energy, just like our own City of Aspen!
Thoughts about parenting adolescents from Head of Middle School Brenda Stockdale. How to navigate the bumpy road to adulthood, whether it's about social media, homework, nutrition, sleep, or other challenging family topics.
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.
The Power of Three


Strong, solid foundation: children become critical thinkers prepared for a lifetime of purposeful learning.



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



Reslience & grit: children grow up at home in nature, building self-confidence and a sense of community.
