The diversity at the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering has proven to be one of the most influential aspects in the school environment. Diversity is acknowledged and cherished, opening the eyes of all to different backgrounds and opportunities around them. The selection of teachers are the reason for many of the student’s successes for they go above and beyond to create a positive and achievable learning environment. One thing that I would like to see changed is the assertiveness of administration. Though we are far from a normal school, some aspects such as effective disciplinary action should be put in place and given equally across all academic standings.
Excellent knowledge available, rigorous coursework, challenging material. There are also excellent teachers. However, social interaction and collaboration should be further emphasized, as that is an integral part of engineering. There are limited extra curricular activities, and few, if any opportunities for bonding with fellow students. Also, there are few field trips to see an actual work environment, even though we are across the street from Iron Mountain, a large data enterprise.
Everyone has their own career path, so the lack of choices in classes, field trips, and extracurricular activities is very concerning. This is the little freedom that students have to mold themselves in their own direction, instead of the direction that the schoolboard orders them to go.
