The Academy of Science and Innovation (ASI) Overall is very good. Before this, it was named Medical Profession and Teachers Preparation Academy, where it embodied a medical and teaching theme. Now known as ASI, it recently switched its theme to STEM. I have been there since middle school and underwent the changes. Teachers there are really open to students from all backgrounds and are willing to help students excel in their goals. The counselors are excellent in terms of getting high school students ready for college, and the activities in the school are well organized to include everyone

I liked the rigorous, college prep curriculum and the opportunities to earn college credit while in high school. I also liked the opportunities to take courses like hydroponics, EMT, aquaponics, medical terminology and the ability to read classics like Color Purple, Their Eyes Were Watching God, etc.
If it weren't for the faculty, I would be gone already. Organization has been lacking since my arrival in 6th grade. I appreciate some of the teachers and their commitment to student achievement. While sometimes it feels as if some teachers give students grades just to have them move on from their class, some of the teachers are truly gems that cannot be found anywhere else.
