Dear American Academy Parents,
Thank you so much for coming in during conferences to talk about all the great progress your child achieved this year! Please read further for recent updates.
Math Final
Math finals will be happening next Monday-Friday, May 16-May 20. Please try not to schedule any appointments during the morning next week to ensure your child is able to complete this important final. The final results will not be sent home, but they are used to help us determine placements for next year. Thank you for your cooperation!
