I've been at Academy for College and Career Exploration for the past four years and it has had it's ups na down. The staff is great, the students is okay. Academics is great has honor classes and AP classes. The opportunities they give is endless. They have college classes with University of Baltimore. Partnered wit The Y of Central Maryland. Partnered with Urban Alliance which gives Internships to Baltimore city students. The school prepares for students for careers and college life. And this is coming one of the top 3 ranking students at ACCE.

In my experience at ACCE, I've seen a lot of teachers doing great work. The teachers care about the students. They will make every possible way to get all of their students to pass their classes. The teachers make the students to work on their fullest potential in their school work. The school itself was clean. The janitors would be there everyday and continuously cleaning up the hallways and bathrooms. They want the school to be accessible and presentable for upcoming students and visitors.
During the four years at ACCE High School I like the different academics they had to offer but my senior year as soon as I went in I was rushed to complete everything within a certain time frame. It wasn’t till my junior and senior year I started to play sports, clubs were never available for students to do that was interesting. Other than that my four years at ACCE High School was bittersweet because I was so ready to leave then when the time came I thought about like “do I really wanna leave?” and “ OMG!!! I finally get to leave this school” at the end of the day everyone has to leave High School in the past and focus on college so those next years people can say “ wow, I am going to miss this school”
