AAEC - Red Mountain Reviews

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.
Review AAEC - Red Mountain
My teachers care about their students, they go out of their way to find to help students struggling. If anyone needed help with homework or could not finish certain assignments due to personal reasons, teachers at this school are understanding and figure out how to make up their work. They also always try to encourage everyone to get involved with clubs and community service. If anyone wanted to help spread the word about charity work, teachers are their to announce it. Our teachers are close and always try to find ways to help improve the school, teaching styles, and activities.
The teachers at AAEC - Red Mountain are all wonderful. They are approachable, and will do anything they can to help a student. They will help if you need them, and have times available for tutoring every week. The teachers are knowledgable in their areas of study but will also try to help in any other subject if needed. The teachers set out a guideline and stick to it for grading and class room expectations.
