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.

The years I have spent at AAEC-SM have been some of the best and the most challenging parts of my life. AAEC-SM provides the opportunity of being able to take college classes at the neighboring community college, because of this I will be graduating from high school already having an associates degree. My school is located in the heart of south Phoenix and one of the poorest zip codes in Arizona, none the less we have come together as a school and have a positive impact on the community. I love my school for the chances it has given me, without this school college would have never been an option, now I hope to one day get a doctoral degree.
I absolutely love my school. The opportunities I have been offered are nearly endless. Not only am I a full time high school student, I am also a full time college student, and president of two different clubs. AAEC SM makes me excited for school. I went from being a straight C/D student in 8th grade, missing 71 days of school, and rarely leaving my house to having 12 hour school days and not trading it in for the world. My school has changed me more than I would have ever thought. My teachers care for me, help me, and work completely around my needs. I am able to conform my schedule to what I need, for the best results for success.
