When I was attending the school, I would have to say that it was a very different experience due to the fact It was an academy. I honestly have been in multiple academy throughout my school career. It was very good experience because they helped you when you needed assistant and you didn't have to wait as long as you would when you in a so call public schools.

I have attended Academy for Business and Technology ever since elementary school. My teachers honestly make me feel like I am growing into a mature lady. I may not enjoy wearing a uniform everyday, but my education is more important. I do not need every thing fancy, and ABT may be on a low budget. But my education is still outstanding. I know what I need to know, thanks to the fabulous teachers, and the staff can always put a smile on your face. This is why I would choose ABT all over again given the chance.
There are a lot of extracurricular activities presented here at our school. We have many sports including baseball, softball. track & field, boys and girls basketball, along with football. we also have nonathletic extracurricular activities such as choir, Nation Honor Society, and many more. Most of the the school tends to get involved, and tends to show school spirit.
