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.

At the Academy of Arts Careers and Technology, I was given opportunities to learn as much as possible in the core subjects: Maths, English, Science, and History. The teachers were kind and understanding, while still doing their job. The only difference I would like to see in the Academy is more opportunities for students to get involved. Implementing activities such as clubs and sports will offer more students ways to get excited about school and give students additional ways to branch out.
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.
