My experience with ATC was better then expected. This school has not only prepared me for college but has helped me find a voice in the community. I have grown stronger, both academically and mentally. It's not all about academics but to grow as a school. There definitely is a different vibe, ATC is unlike any other school I've been to. The teachers and administration have made it their number one goal for students to succeed here at The Academy for Technology and the Classics. There isn't much to improve on, we have culture and activities to bring our community together.

I absolutely loved ATC! It was a great school that challenged its students all while nurturing them. The culture has grown a bit more competitive since I started in 2010, but it still feels personal and the competition is akin to sibling rivalry. Overall, it's an excellent school that will prep a kid for life after high school.
I loved attending ATC. It is a wonderful community of individuals who are not afraid of being themselves. There are many benefits of going here, we focus on college readiness and AP. AP is great in some aspects, but it is very challenging when it is the only option. I was definitely always challenged, and our teachers try and lend themselves to all of our unique styes of learning. The only problems, were our lack of funding. We had to use very old and used books, but it didn't stop us.
