AAEC - Paradise Valley Reviews
Review AAEC - Paradise Valley
My experiences in AAEC- Paradise Valley may be few, but they have given me insight into the social structure of the school. The students are very accepting of people, some topics such as religion are some sensitive since many students have strong beliefs in their religions. Despite that, an atheist such as myself fits in just fine. I love the teachers at this school. They are all very understanding and willing to listen to your circumstances and adjust as needed. The administration is lack luster. They make many mistakes with scheduling and communicating with Paradise Valley Community College. The school allows students such as myself to test out of classes and get the credits for said classes. If you come into the school ahead of the curve, you have the ability to match up with your intellectual rivals and take the same classes as them. Overall, the school is very good.
The school was presented as a place for the "nerds", but it turned out to be more of a place for the outcasts. Being so small and with the student population make-up it was difficult to form a decent sized friend group. However even though the social aspect was lacking, the school academically was pretty great. One definitely needs to be dedicated and not afraid to push themselves, and will need to be stubborn when working with faculty to create your schedule (sometimes if was difficult to convince them that I wanted more than 2 college classes a semester) to get the most out of the school for your education. So if one is willing to sacrifice the social life (and sports because the only sport there is Quidditch) for free college classes, equine and pre-vet programs, and great teachers then this school is a good fit. I loved it because I graduated with two Associate Degrees.
AAEC-PV was an all around OK experience. The academics are not very good, it is not the normal "high school experience" meaning there is no sports, the school dances suck, and the people there are different. The only thing good I have found about this school in the last four years is that it is very tightly knit so teachers are very helpful and concerned about you. Not very good socially and definitely very small and not much to do. Also taking classes at the college was very helpful but it should be earned not given to all students.
