ACE follows the curriculum adopted by the Rochester Community Schools Board of Education. ACE High School students who complete all Rochester Community Schools graduation requirements receive their diploma from Adams High School, Rochester High School, or Stoney Creek High School.
The ACE staff is highly-qualified as defined by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2002. All full-time teachers are dual certified by the Michigan Department of Education and are certified to teach all classes offered at ACE. All teachers are members of the Rochester Education Association and Michigan Education Association.
The ACE staff put much energy and emphasis on making the curriculum hands-on, challenging, and interesting. ACE staff focus on learning from doing rather than observing and memorizing. Class is often organized in themes that pertain to everyday concerns. Themes help ACE students relate the curriculum to their lives. It also helps them see the connections between school and the world around them.
