We are proud of our dynamic, caring and talented teachers.
Our faculty is comprised of 49 full- and part-time educators, including experienced 30-year veterans as well as a few newly certificated young teachers. We have:
- Two science specialists
- Three performing arts and music teachers
- Enrichment teachers in the visual arts, foreign language, technology and physical education
- ACS students also enjoy the support of a full-time librarian to teach library skills and assist with research projects
Taken as a whole, our faculty offers children more than 750 combined years of teaching experience! ACS is a fun, upbeat place to teach and learn; consequently our teachers enjoy long tenures at ACS and our rate of faculty retention ranks among the best independent schools nationally. More than 90% of our teachers have chosen to stay at ACS over the past decade, a tribute to the positive experiences they’ve had with our supportive families and engaged children.
Few schools can offer a comparably loyal, enthusiastic and dedicated faculty; indeed, fully 100% of our teachers donate personal funds to our Annual Giving Campaign each year.
ACS is an independent school, meaning that we design and implement our own rigorous curriculum to meet California’s academic content standards and accomplish our mission — discovering the gifts in every child. Our teachers appreciate the freedom they have to customize instruction to the needs and interests of their students, developing creative and innovative lessons to deliver our proven curriculum while sharing their passion and excitement for teaching.
We think you’ll feel this passion when you visit our campus. We invite you to meet our remarkable faculty during one of our open houses, or contact our Admission Office to arrange a tour and see our top-notch teachers in action!
