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.
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.
