I appreciate the rigor of ATC, but that is about all I appreciate; I am truly grateful for ATC's rigor because without it I wouldn't have the foundational knowledge that I will need to succeed in college and beyond. Some grievances: one, the Math and Science departments are the weakest links of the school and have truly failed most students, two, the students accomplishments are overly accredited to the teachers, three, the lack of facilities (yes I know this is largely out of the schools control).

This school is perfect for those, like me, who enjoy learning in smaller class sizes. This school, as a college prep school, has given me the resources to feel confident with my future especially when it comes to college. I feel prepared for the academic rigor of college because I attended The Academy for Technology and the Classics. I would definitely would recommend this school to those who are looking for a strong academic education and a great foundation for their future if it be college or otherwise.
I liked the rigorous curriculum as well as the environment surrounding us. There are smaller classes so there is a more one and one approach. The AP classes that we take as well as the opportunities of dual credit with the surrounding colleges around us give us a insight on the college life as well as the academics. Not every school is perfect, the sports are not as developed as I would have liked. There are some sports, but not the one I have had a great interest in, Volleyball. The academics and the community we are surrounded in gives us a challenge and a place to grow.
