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!
Review Academy for Technology, Engineering, Math & Science (ATEMS)
I've had a great experience at ATEMS. I developed so many skills through every class that helped me grow as a person. Our freshman year we were taught how important it was to work together in groups and distribute the work. Junior year was basically an introduction to college because we were exposed to AP/Dual Credit classes that were difficult. However, we learned to keep going even if things were difficult. Another thing is that even though we don't directly have sports or other fine arts because we have such a small campus, the administration did a great job of figuring out a way to have students travel between the other two schools.
ATEMS high school is a very small school but with a big education. Everyone gets to know each other and the teachers are just very nice and helpful. On my freshman year I designed a train on an application called Inventor and my teacher printed it on our 3D printer; it was fun to make it and do the math during the process. I also got to built a puzzle cube and a Lego brick.
This year is my second year and I'm still on the engineering pathway and I decided to take a course called Principles of Information Technology. In ATEMS we have two pathways, engineering and technology. I have been more interested on being on the engineering pathway since middle school because of all the math and ATEMS offers so much like our privileges of taking our devices with a trust card, which everyone gets at the beginning of the school year, and get to work on them for classwork and have fun with them on free time like in lunch.
I am very glad to be a student at ATEMS and representing the STEM pathway.
