I am a student at AAEC - Mesa, but unfortunately out school hasn’t been on the map long enough to get on the school lists, so i’m setting this up under a close branch school to us; AAEC Red Mountain. In all honesty, I wasn’t sure what to expect when i first arrived here. For the most part, it has exceeded expectations. Though there is a clear focus on stem programs, the english and history classes are nothing to scoff at. Generally, the students here are motivated by the promise of early college classes. This motivation is certainly well founded, as the majority of my peers are a mere few credits off of obtaining their associates degrees. The main complaints I have are that the school could handle to be a bit more inclusive, and I believe this inclusiveness could be obtained by including a few, more diverse, clubs.

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.
Average school, the only good thing is the college credits, and readiness for college. I attended for 1.5 years and most teachers left within working there for 1 year. Was no real organization within the school admin, so things got lost alot. Unfortunate.
