Academy of Art Careers & Technology Reviews
AACT is a school for students who want to have the chance to express their individuality without being criticized for it. With endless amounts of support from my teachers and administration from my high school, I was never in a place without help. I was always supported and was insanely prepared for college, in ways that I didn't even know I could be prepared for. This high school is one of the greatest high schools in Nevada and it definitely shows.
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.
The Academy of Arts, Careers and Technology has pushed my out of my shell and past my limit, all for the benefit of my future. Had I not gone to AACT, I would not have to career opportunities I have today.
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.
The teachers and staff really care about the students. I wish more students in lower grades would take the opportunities they have more seriously and were more caring.
All teachers and staff are so helpful and willing to help you succeed because they care about you. Students are all have the perseverance to succeed which allows you to make lasting friendships with people that stand the same ground as you. Academic preparation is impeccable with every year having 99% or more graduating.
Over the course of my four years at AACT, I have grown as a person and in my career interest. The teachers and staff are special and have always pushed me to my best. I would recommend this school for anybody who strives for excellence.
Overall, the school is just fantastic. All the teachers are very supportive of your education, and they're willing to help a lot so that you succeed. The career specific classes have taught me a lot about jobs after high school, which I wouldn't have learned at most other schools. And all the students are dedicated to the school and are much more professional and responsible than one might expect from a teenager. AACT has helped me to develop as a student and as a future professional.
I attended the Academy of Arts Careers and Technology with the hopes that I would get the skills I needed to succeed in life, not only did they surpass my expectations but they showed me where I wanted to go in life. Thanks to the excellent staff and teachers I feel confident in my academic achievement as I persist into the next stages of my life.
AACT is a school that allows you to glimpse into a career of your choice. Furthermore, the staff and faculty genuinely cares for it's students, and actively encourages and engages with them. While upper management could use some work, the school is fantastic overall.
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.
This school is one of the most amazing schools ever. The main focus is academics and preparing you for college. I was able to graduate with my honors diploma and 13 college credits. The teachers at this school actually care about you and strive to help you succeed. We were able to have a 100% graduation rate because of the assistance and persistence of the amazing staff at AACT High school.
I have always felt welcome and excited to learn since I started at AACT in fall of 2014. This school has become my second family and I am sad that in just a few short months I will have to leave this wonderful environment.
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 love how small and close my school is. Teachers are always incredibly helpful and there anytime you need them. Our counselors give us so many opportunities and even have a website set up with scholarship information. We are given the opportunity to participate in SkillsUSA, FBLA, and many more competitions as well.
Great environment with great teachers and staff. Students and teachers are very supportive and wanting to help their peers and students strive.
Very positive and encouraging staff and peers. Focus on career readiness helped me prepare for college and gave me related experience for the work field.
I like how AACT allows you to take different classes than most high schools. I also like how you are able to take more challenging classes than other high schools offer. Lastly I like how they focus on your interests in what you want to do when you get older.
The Academy of Arts, Careers, & Technology is without a doubt the best high school in Nevada. From its range of diverse students, an academically driven body, and the welcoming environment, I recommend AACT to anyone that cares about their education. The staff at AACT is wonderful. Throughout my time there, I have experienced the amazing care and time the teachers give to their students. Because AACT is an academy based school, the students who attend have a passion for what they are learning. In all of AACT's history, there has never once been a school fight. The environment is welcoming and accepting. The school also has a wide range of diversity because it is not a zoned school. I was enrolled in the Natural Resources and Animal Science academy at AACT and I got to experience many types of hands on learning. This schools has aided me in preparing for college and I don't know where I would be without it.
