“I believe a school should be fun and rigorous in equal measure. Too rigorous and it won’t be fun. Too fun and you’ll never learn to spell rigorous.”
“I believe I have the confidence to stretch myself and not settle for what feels okay, but to question and seek different answers.”
“I believe an education at ACS is like a best friend. It walks with you, hand in hand, as the lessons of life unfold. It teaches you the art of thinking and discovery. It empowers you to be true to yourself, and it lasts a lifetime.”
“I believe that if I reach a high level of self-knowledge and inner peace, I can help to make the world just a little bit better.”
“I believe in learning through experience. I believe in exploration. I believe in science and art. In music. Outdoor education. Indoor education. Creativity. Adventure. Family. Beauty. Messiness. Curiosity. I believe in learning, always.”
Energy recovery ventilation (ERV) is the process of exchanging the energy contained in normally exhausted building or space air and using it to precondition the incoming outdoor ventilation air in HVAC systems. During the warmer seasons, the system pre-cools and dehumidifies, while humidifying and pre-heating in the cooler seasons. This technology has not only demonstrated an effective means of reducing energy cost and heating and cooling loads, but has allowed for the scaling down of equipment. In our case, the ERV, which was funded in part by a CORE Grant, will help us achieve our energy-efficiency and LEED Gold goals.
