Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Reviews

The Academy of Aerospace and Engineering is a very rigorous magnet school in which students are constantly pushed to do their best. It consists of many challenging yet fascinating classes that most schools typically do not have, such as Music Theory, Aerospace Engineering, and many more. Along with the diversity of the classes, Aerospace also has a strong diversity of students. One thing I dislike about my school is the interaction of students. There are many fights that occur often in the school, and many classroom holds have happened as a result. This fights interfere with the school safety, which is a major factor of an appropriate educational environment.

The school was great, with great academics, teachers who cared, and many academic outlets. However, it's slowly becoming more and more like a public school, with no money for academic teams and underclassmen who just don't care. The teachers still care, though, and that is one of the few good things left.
I love this school because this school has so many things to do. Their technology is just great. I sometimes 3D print things there. One time, I 3D printed a night light and some legos. I also dissected a rat in the tenth grade and a sheep brain this year. Last year, I created a rocket and that flew more than seventy miles up. The school is just amazing. There are many things to do there that no one else can do in other schools. I am currently taking a Photography class and it is great. I can take all sorts of pictures.
