The students learn to challenge themselves. There are no limits on the students and if a student is advancing far more rapidly than their peers, Acton will make adjustments in their daily activities. - Mar 2023

No. Absolutely not. My student arrived with strong standardized test scores and well-developed as a student. We were not required to exert any effort, no homework, limited classwork, no studying. My student began the next school year at a school for struggling students so they could try to recover the lost year at Discovery. - Mar 2023

Our kids are very different but were both appropriately challenged. Teachers individualize assignments based on students abilities. Gifted students are pulled out for enrichment classes in reading and math when they qualify. - Jul 2019

Yes they are and some of the teachers provide more advanced work to make it more challenging. Also they have specialized help for kids that need extra help in school. - Sep 2018

Yes... - May 2018

I believe so - Mar 2017

Yes, they are. But, my child was diagnosed as having SIGNIFICANT developmental delays while on home leave in the US that his two teachers (over two years) did not pick up on. I assume it's because although they are very kind and nuturing, they are not always professionally trained. - Jun 2016
