ATEMS isn't a normal high school. It has about 400 students compared to the 1000's at other big high schools. Because of that, there is little to no bullying, more opportunities to be taken for instance we are treated more like a college than other schools. Also, we have these college visit days that help us pick a college we want to attend after graduation. If you love engineering then this is also the school for you. ATEMS has an excellent engineering endorsement. ATEMS has more equipment for engineering purposes than the other big schools in town. ATEMS is an excellent high school, I highly recommend it if you want to be more prepared for college.

I have really enjoyed my time at ATEMS. The teachers are some of the best in town, and since it is such a small school, the teachers are able to focus on helping you more than they could in a large school. Also, the small student body allows for a better opportunity to make friends with most everyone, and we are a fairly close-knit community. The kids here are all very intelligent, and I believe we have had greater opportunities here to prepare for college. ATEMS was the only school in Abilene to host Princeton Review over the summer, which prepares you for the SAT, and has a "trust card" system which promotes good grades and behavior.
We had many extracurricular opportunities in our school we are offered U.I.L to participate in and many different clubs like yearbook, STARS, mouse squad, and student council etc;. I had strong commitment to after school activities I would call in a little late for work because school comes first. All students stayed committed to different extracurricular activities this help me focus on school even more!
