Founded in Riverside by Mrs. Queene Ferry Coonley and Lucia Burton Morse and moved to its present location in 1929, ACS has gained more than local prominence over the years. Drawing students from roughly 40 suburban communities, Avery Coonley conducts a rigorous elementary program that emphasizes critical and independent thought. Various accelerated and enriched programs serve a student body that consists of bright and academically gifted children. Courses in art, computer science, French, music and physical education begin in kindergarten and continue through grade 8. ACS issues tablet computers to boys and girls in grades 6-8. Academic and enrichment classes are available in the summer program.
