Now that I'm about to be a senior in the 2017-2018 school year, my experience here at AEE was beyond great. Although it seems we find to be secluded from the other academies, we still find our way to become a one big happy family. Everyone seems to know each other, especially with the teachers and faculty. We also go against one another in class activities and they're usually enjoyable where everyone gets in it, no matterif they think it's stupid or not. I'm happy to say that AEE is truly awesome!

My 11th grade year was my first year attending Academy of Education and Empowerment(AEE) on Carson's High campus and I have experience improvement, confidence, stress and relief, and other obstacles that will prepare me for the rest of my educational career. Completing AP courses gave me insight of what school and others have in store for me. Although AEE is a very small school, it makes it easier for teachers and students to build a one on one relationship. My weakness subject in school was english. Having meetings during breaks and after school, consistently asking for feedback on every assignments, and even off subject conversations, distinguished a bond between my english teacher Mr. Paez and I. Each teacher has their own teaching style and they are all respected. Some allow big discussions to gather different points of views and try to get everyone engaged, others may prefer short discussions. A few may put grades in on spot, some wait until the grading window opens. Majority of AEE classes are AP and the teachers prepare their students for the end of the year exam. This school is guaranteed a family. I enjoy how I can sit down with any teacher and can have a full conversation with them, either discussing school or other topics. It takes time, patience, and awareness to affiliate yourself with high school students and those are meant for the job.
As of this present day, I am a 10th sophomore at Academy of Education & Empowerment. I started here last year as a freshmen and will soon graduate from here as a 12th grade senior in the class of 2019. This school is quite small but it is well known and I'm glad that I chose to be here. My likes about my school is that it provides many resources such as preparing for college, sports, clubs, activities, and furthermore. What I most like is that there is a staff member on campus that has a masters in social work and it is exactly what I want to do. So if I have any questions about anything, I can go to her. I also like that any student may go to any teacher or staff for help. What I think that could change is to have more college students from different majors to come and talk to us. For these reasons, is why I love my school and would give a 5 star rating.
