Overall the parent support at this school is astonishing. One time we had a situation where the students had planned a special event for the teachers all on our own, but it didn't take long before a couple of our parent met and decided they would take care of it all, the spending, the catering, everything was covered by our PTA. The outcome was super,our teachers were impressed by our actions and they continued to do a great job! Our parents truly care about our education and they will assist us in any way possible even of it is to have a little fun. Some parents continue to be active with our events and our school nights even though their children have long graduated, they still comeback to support our staff and our awesome students.
Review AAEC Early College High School - South Mountain Campus
I enjoyed seeinf how some teacher were really commited to teaching. Such as the math teacher, Ms. Martin, she was pretty helpful. I feel as if they need to reevaluate pay for some teachers, some definately deserve a raise. I like how they offer a chance to graduate high school with an Associates Degree. I would like them to have normal class schedules instead of block classes. A lot of students dislike having 2 hour breaks during some days.
All of the teachers always go beyond their capacities when it comes to helping students outside and in the classroom. I particularly admire our mathematics department for the amazing job they have done at our campus and for continuing to bring in awesome scores every year.Their unique way of teaching, remembering the song "The QF", in order to memorize the quadratic formula, or remembering "sohcahtoa" for everything triangles. These little fun> and sometimes exaggerated funny memes, often do the trick for us students when testing comes around, and these methods are proven to work when our scores come back to be the best ones in the district.
