Academy for Career Exploration Reviews
It is a great school! You get to learn new thing. ACE is a public charter school that develops technology talent at the high school level by providing students with skills focused on the emerging Innovation Economy. We offer three career pathways: Application Programming & Software Engineering (APSE), Cisco Networking & Cyber Security, and Data Science. Our students have the opportunity to graduate not only with valuable job skills; they also earn industry credentials and college credit.
My experience at ACE was positive and was an important factor to the academic person I am now. I got the opportunity to go on educational trips with the help of our hardworking staff. I went on some college visits and college fairs. I also got the opportunity to earn college credits at a nearby college. I learned how time management is important in a college setting. ACE taught all students about their strengths and how they can be used on daily bases. Mostly everyone is accepting and kind of the different opinions and cultures. ACE is overall a good school!
Objectively speaking this school is pretty average compared to most in the district. Due to the size, it has to cut back on classes such as P.E, Music, and Art. There are clubs, however, your options are pretty limited. I think the school's biggest strong point is its focus on technology, specifically when it comes to Cybersecurity and Data Science. To keep this short and simple, if you're looking for a school that's small, centered around tech, and has decent teachers, I think this is a good secondary option compared to say PCTA. Otherwise, you're better off going somewhere else instead.
