The Academy is nice for education and that's about it. Not enough physical art, not enough physical exercise, not enough support. Strong sense of superiority with little to show for it other than offbrand confidence that exists to invite and shun. They don't care about students with mental illnesses, or any student who doesn't demonstrate their idea of greatness. The career tech training is the only thing that sets aact aside from being just another can't-do-anything-for-anyone high school of Nevada.

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.
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!
