Great school! Teachers are focused in helping students reach their goals and graduate. Parents should be more involved with their student since its their last years and students really would need their support.

My high school experience was good! The teachers at my school try their best to be there for every student. I would highly recommend anyone that's in high school to attend Academy high school because it's a very welcoming environment! The teachers actually care about you and want to see you successful. They never give up on you.
The way the campus is set up us suppose to ready you for college, but it just separates the students and causes problems. Some schools think they are better than others. Overall, it is just school. You show up and do your work and you will pass. The academics is not very difficult, just depends on the teacher.
