Academy for Academic Excellence Reviews
I Graduated from the Academy for Academic Excellence, my experience was good with the school. I went to this school k-12. I was involved in AFJROTC for four years, National Honor Society since eighth grade, and I was a Honors/AP student. There are also opportunities to get involved with various clubs such as Kittyhawk Air Society, Art Club, Dance team, Photography club, and so much more. Most teachers were very caring and strived for your understanding of the material. This school is a Charter school. The Academy for Academic Excellence has prepared me for my future in college.
Having been at AAE since kindergarten, I have to say I love this school. Yes, there were moments that were unfair, and moments of hatred towards the school, but in the end (specifically high school) I realized how good the school really was. I felt that my other students and majority of the teachers are nice, and are easy to talk to. In the end I feel like it's hard to be left out at AAE as well, with many opportunities to be involved in the community and hands on learning and experiences with the teachers. The school has a mass array of activities, and is an amazing school for arts and college readiness. From what I've learned the school understands problems, and is always willing to take knowledge and criticism from the students to fix or help the problems. I really do think the school could be for everyone, but at a risk. To go to AAE you must be ready for the work, and tasks set by teachers, and the college readiness of the school.
The school is primarily focused on academics and relies on technology (homework typically given in every class every day). Campus is very safe and teachers are great. You can tell that the teachers care for all their students and their futures. The school helps with getting into college, such as applications, registering, etc. Since I was used to copious amounts of homework given, the transition from high school to college was not difficult at all.
