I applied to the Academy of Art Careers and Technology because of their Career and Technical Education Programs. I am currently a sophomore studying video production and it is a really fun class and I am able to participate in competitions for it that can qualify me for a national competition. The environment here is great. There is no bullying and because we're such a small school, everyone's like one big family and I know almost everyone here. One of my favorite things about my school is the teacher-student connections. There aren't many students here so teachers are able to be more one on one with students and you can build strong relationships with them.

This school is outstanding. Teachers here are not only requiring but encouraging students to be active community members. At AACT, teachers set students up for an easy transition into a college or career. Students here create a hefty portfolio throughout all four years of high school that will become useful for job interviews and much much more. There is too much good to say about this school, I highly recommend Reno students to apply to this high school. AACT is truly life changing.
This school was the greatest in preparing me for colleges and gave me real life connections and experiences to take with me. I also got introduced to many great community members in the process! Every teacher is super involved and cares about their students immensely.
