The school gets great test schools and it can be easy to skip over how they achieve this. The families that choose this school are primarily going to ensure that their child succeeds regardless of what school the child attend. Although the children are together for 9 years, the teachers do nothing to coordinate the teaching across those years. There is a lot of homework assigned, but instructions is minimal. The school expects parents to be the teachers in most subject EXCEPT chinese language. For example, math instruction is very poor. Homework is assigned but student grade each others work. This means that students get no feedback on how to improve. I can say my child is doing well because I spend a couple of hours a day reviewing homework , providing instruction for that days homework and supplementing with online instruction from Khan Academy. I would recommend that working parents bite the bullet and pay for private school. You will end up damaging your career with all the time you need to spend as a "teacher" at AFY.

This mainly refers to middle school at AFY. As a student, I constantly thought about how much I hated this school. The same can be said for many other students and alumni. I repeatedly reminded myself of how much homework I had and how hard school was. Years later, as now a graduating senior in high school, I understand why AFY methods are the best. Many people say it is outdated teaching and that students are taught to take tests.The "out dating teaching technique" pays off the most. It is so intense and rigorous that it makes high school seem like nothing, or even less, literally. At AFY we are taught to take tests, but this IS middle school. How many more tests will you take in your life? From high school placement to college exit exams, that's a lot of tests. When considering this school, keep in mind what type of learner your child is, it's like college, not every school is a bad school, but there is a different and unique touch to them and your kid. If I, a high school teenager, can understand and appreciate the different prod and cons of this school, so should each parent out there. Good luck too all the parents considering schools :) Love, JL C/0 '10

My kids are lucky to have such a high level education at AFY! This school is clean, safe, the teachers are dedicated, very involved and super creative. They are teaching Cantonese, Mandarin and English and still managing to get some of the highest scores in California. The Principal is a strong leader, which has set this school for success over the years. We have a great parent community with many fun events and strong support for the school. My family loves AFY!
