This school is ideal for those who are serious in pursuing a Computer Science degree. Those who apply merely to try something new will defiantly feel overwhelmed. However, AFSE at it's core will always be an institution driven to bring out an individual's potential. Whether it is attending College or starting your own business, hard work is always emphasized. Staff support is widely available after school and each student is grouped with an advisory. For the next 4 years students are aware of each objective they should focus on based off their current level.(ex: all juniors were sent to mandatory tutoring for the SAT). Some Cons of AFSE include sharing a building with 5 other schools, unbalanced gender demographic(A LOT OF GUYS), small lunchrooms, metal detectors and phone policy. Very strict phone policy. All in all AFSE taught me a lot about myself and I wouldn't have traded any of my experiences in the world.
Review Academy for Software Engineering
The quality of the teachers is phenomenal. All teachers teach in ways that allow students to easily comprehend the information. If students struggle with understanding something, teachers always have a backup or a different approach to getting the students to understand. Not only that but the teachers want to see the students succeed because teachers devoted their time to get students to the next step. Teachers will not give up unless students fully understand the context, as most stay past their work hours just to individually help students.
My experience at this school has been awesome since the moment I first joined. The uniqueness of this schools comes from what it mainly focuses on teaching, that is computer science. Being that this school is about technology, it incorporates technology in every class, from math, to science, to even music. Through it incorporation of technology, it has shown me the different ways that technology could be used in life and even different fields for college. Technology is what defines this school, and what makes it different from standard highschools.
