Academy for Allied Health Science Reviews

My experience at the Academy for Allied Health Sciences has been rewarding and one that I know has prepared me for the next four years of my life beyond its doors. With top notch academics, rigorous courses and top of the line teachers and administration, it is no wonder why alumni return and express upon current students how prepared they were for the work load and rigor that college students face. In addition to academics, Allied Health and the rest of the schools on its campus are home to many active clubs and activities, specifically including the Student Movement Against Cancer and Multicultural Club, which displays our school's diversity and drive toward helping others, and also encourages a multitude of parent involvement. Back in the classroom, students have access to many resources and are never a step behind in innovations in technology. Besides our average cafeteria food, Allied Health is an extraordinary, safe, diverse and academically challenging place to go to school.
Review Academy for Allied Health Science
As a rising senior, I can say that these past three years at Allied have certainly been memorable. Vigorous and challenging, but manageable if you put in the time and effort to understand what is being taught. This school prepares all its students from freshman year and onward for the health care profession by providing a unique, in-depth foundation. The school does not lack in diversity, but is still predominantly white - if that is an issue for anyone. There aren't many areas for change except trivial matters such as the food. Overall, a fantastic school that should not harbor any feelings of regret for attending.
The teachers are really great at explaining things. On rare occasions, if a student feels that he is not learning, it is most likely because the student does not ask any questions or for any help. However, the teachers here are excellent and are always willing to take a step back and clarify anything a student might be having trouble with. Also, many teachers are involved with extracurricular activities and encourage students to participate as they help with the learning experience.

Many of the teachers here care about the students a lot. For the most part, fair exams are given and it is usually never the teacher's fault if a student falls behind (the courses here are pretty difficult). They also speak to the students and give great advice on how to study. The teachers really get to know the students here. They learn everyone's name, and know who everyone is, as well as what they do and what they aspire to be.
