I am proud of the education and support that my two children have received during elementary, middle school and high school at the Academy for Academic Excellence. The teachers, staff and admin are passionate and highly dedicated. Parent involvement is unparalleled. My senior has received many scholarships and feels confident that she is well prepared for college. This is truly the best school!
Review Academy for Academic Excellence
This school excels in preparing students for college. By providing counseling, extracurricular programs, and creating opportunities in academic development this school aids students in creating their path for the future. While this school has many qualities there are some areas that are lacking as such in diversity and the school culture. The foundation of the school's academia is centered around the NASA space program and structure of core classes. There are however, options for performing arts, music, and art. This creates a diverse field of study to get the students interested in learning.
There are many clubs/extracurricular activities within the AAE. Our most known are things like make a wish, HOSA, and AFJROTC. These programs are very well involved with proving students with the ability to provide to the community. For instance, make a wish has been successful in fundraising enough funds to grant children who have been diagnosed with medical disabilities their wishes. ASB is also very well liked and favored at the school because they are in charge of planning of the AAE activities from dances to Fall Festival. These many programs and clubs are a huge part of what make AAE exciting.
