AAEC - Red Mountain Reviews
AAEC Red Mountain is a wonderful high school with a tight-knit, family community of just 150 students. It is perfect for kids with an interest in agriculture, animals, or veterinary science. Their vet courses are great, and are taught by the ex-head vet at the Phoenix Zoo and one of his past assistants. They are also an early college school, so as long as you have passing grades, they pay for your college classes. Everyone is enrolled at the college in freshman year. You have the chance to graduate with two Associate's degrees free of charge. The academics are very good and there are high expectations for students there. The teachers are all very nice and supportive, and most offer free tutoring after school. Something to keep in mind for some students, though, is that there is no PE or sports of any kind. There is also no lunch offered. If you're looking for a smaller school with a high emphasis on academics, this is the school for you.
I love how AAEC pays for the adjacent community college (tuition and classes). I like how helpful they are with helping you succeed. Since it is a small campus, you know almost everyone. Teachers will know your name and take the time to get to know you throughout your high school career. Though, some teachers do not seem as invested in their career and helping the students. This campus is one of the smallest and older ones, so there is not a cafeteria.
I'm a senior at AAEC RM and my past 3 years have been interesting to say the least. The school is very unorganized and lacks student pride, participation, and motivation. I enjoy the concurrent enrollment at MCC more than I do the high school classes. There is a small amount of teachers that are good at this school and teachers never last. Neither do students. I find AAEC to be particularly lacking in the math department. Overall, AAEC is a great school just to suck it up and bring the work load down on yourself. Schedules are flexible for the most part but prepared to be put in classes you don't want or need due to the administrations lack of scheduling skills.
