Academic Enrichment Opportunities
Each September our student body elects students from First through Eighth Grades to the AES Student Council. The Council is mentored by the Head of School and members help with AES Spirit Day each first and third Thursday of the school year. They meet twice per month and participate in service projects for the school. The Student Council consists of a president, vice-president, treasurer, parliamentarian, and a representative from each class beginning with First Grade.
Every student in Second through Eighth Grades participates in Choir with classes two mornings per week. The Choir performs during selected chapels and graduation.
Field trips are taken by students beginning with Third Grade to area theaters such as Main Street Theater, the Symphony, and area museums.
AES students are inspired by our educational visitors to campus. Our visitors include the Houston Audubon Society and The Mad Beekeeper. Main Street Theater also brings "Book Talks" to AES. The Bellaire Nature Center, the local fire station, and a dental assistant all bring programs to our Early Childhood students.
