The Academy for Career Exploration is a technology based school that provides opportunities for students and their career choices. They gave students in the junior class a free ride to colleges that where offered.(Roger Williams, Johnston and Whales, CCRI). The school also gave students the experience to see what it's like to work in the career path of their choice. For example, when I was a senior, I was given the opportunity to internship at Antony Carnevale Elementary school. I was the school nurses assistant, I received a hands on experience that I will never forget. Not only was it a good experience but it was an eye opener, it made me realize that working with children in the medical field wasn't for me. Other than the experiences given to students, the teachers were a big help. They motivate the students to be nothing but hardworking student. That is what my overall experience at the Academy for Career Exploration.
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!
