I liked the different academies that the students were able to enroll in, allowing them to decide what their future academic and career goals will be. This is a step forward into deciding what major the students will have in college. It's a nice boost in their academic path. With this, each academy has very diverse and meticulous goals in regards to their field of interest. Each academy's leaders and teachers are filled with enthusiasm and care for their students, which allows for a more loving and friendly school environment, debunking the stereotypical idea of school.
Review Academy of Art Careers & Technology
I couldn't have asked for a better high school. AACT has provided me with an abundant amount of opportunities I would not have been offered at any other high school. Since my interview, upon my acceptance, and throughout my years in the medical academy, I have established the best relationships between my friends and teachers. Our teachers have great personalities which not only makes classes fun, but also allows us as students to relate to them and look up to them. Our school is by far the most unique in Reno. With our CTE weeks, dress up days on spirit weeks, lunch activities, and amount of school spirit from students and teachers, no other school can compete. Only at AACT will you have a student v. teacher dodge ball tournament complete with team outfits!
The school focuses on helping students with their studies. I graduated from AACT in 2015 and loved this school. I knew I could reach out to my teachers if i was struggling with homework. I am a fist generation high school graduate and when it was time to apply for college, I knew I could count on the counselors to help me with the application process. On the Academic aspect of the school, I knew I need to try hard to earn a good grade. This school also values Community Service and helped students get involved in the community with volunteer work. The school also helped students get hands on experience in the job force through internships. I was a part of the Medical Academy and was able to complete an Internship at the hospital and learn about the different departments in the hospital. This school helped me prepare for the life after graduating and if I could go back to high school, I would apply for this school once again.
