I currently go to A3 and I think it was the best decision I have made by far. In all my years going to school I have been bullied and treated as an outcast without a say in my opinions and goals. I was afraid I would fail and never get the chance to become who I was meant to be. I was given two choices. Springfield high or A3. A3 wasn't a given choice actually, but that's because my parents were all against the school because just because it was a school with equality and morals that stand out from the other schools in the community it was imperfect and not reaching to there standards. From what I herd the community is always downing our school and what we do at A3. Our school was used as an example once at another school brought to one of the students in the area by a teacher from which they said that A3 was "Gay3". I did not appreciate there hateful opinion. I love my school and even though sometimes its hectic at times. They all care and love you for the person you are. They treat you as a human being which in my opinion most schools don't do at all. I went to A3 to find safety from the bullies awaiting me at Springfield. And once in my life all the people who hurt me disappeared. I also failed my classes in school. A3 has been the best source of education Ive had. The teachers listen to all the questions a student needs to ask. The questions are answered appropriately according to the question. My school gives the freedom of opportunity for success and gives a second home to students who don't have a home. At most schools teachers sit us down and make us quiet without any social interaction, but I say otherwise because working with others defiantly helps out when bouncing ideas to elaborate on our given projects. A3 is about the path to success and to be who you are with respect.
Review Academy of Arts & Academics
I love my teachers! They're usually very helpful and knowledgable. I appreciate their work and they appreciate mine. The grading is a bit inconsistent between different teachers, but other than that, the teachers are great.
The Teachers: The teachers are amazing. They have real-life experiences, and they're always willing to share stories or advice with students. Every student finds at least one teacher that they can really connect with. That's probably the best part about the school.

The Curriculum: They don't offer honors or AP courses, and that's always been my biggest problem with the school. However, they never leave a student behind.

Scheduling Process: It's mostly done online, but if there's a problem with your schedule, it's really easy to speak to the registrar about it and get it changed.

Workload: I almost wish it were more difficult. They challenge you, but there are lulls between challenges. Confluence is a lot of work, and it can get pretty stressful. If you have a student attending here, be sure to ask them how it's going. If they're not stressed, it's because they're done with everything and they're wonderful, or it's because they suck and aren't doing their work and their group is probably stressing over the project even more.

Special Study Options: There are tutoring clubs after school, mostly for math until the end of each term. I've tutored in there, and it seems to help the few people who actually show up.

Popular Classes: Acting Theory, History of Theatre, Movement for All, Photography, Short Story, Colour and Paint Basics, Advanced Musical Ensemble, Robotics, 3D Animation.
