The teachers were incredible. They show how much they care about their students by going above and beyond for them. Each teacher had their own effective way of teaching their students, that gave them the chance to learn what they needed. They were also there for the students emotionally by giving them the support or advice they needed. The school offered interesting classes that exposed the students to things they may have never known they'd like, such as, musical theater, digital photography, robotics, etc. The diversity in the school is also amazing and eye-opening. I truly wish there were a few more after school activities offered, however, I understand that the after school transportation was always a problem with CREC. Overall, the school is worth it!

I absolutely loved the teachers. I felt that they truly cared for me and for my future by giving me the education I really need to move on and into college. There's also a lot of diversity and opportunities in the school, such as, getting a chance to explore robotics, photography, medicine/health, hydroponics/aquaponics, etc. I believe the school also offered a great amount of clubs and activities for students (although I wished there could've been more). Overall, my experience at this school was wonderful. Although, there were a few downsides; flaws to it, as there are in many other schools. There were many changes made to the curriculum, to the staff, and more ever since the new building had opened. However, I honestly believe the school has improved over the years, that many students and parents will be pleased.
I have been attending this school for 6 years now and I think it has made me into the excellent person I am today. Every school has its ups and downs but this school has taught me the disciplined and hardworking attitude I needed in life to really go for what I want in my future. It has taught me to not be lazy and really go for what I want since they provide a lot of resources and outlets to express ourselves. ASI is ran by great staff that always consider the well being of their students even if we don't see it at first. I would recommend this school completely because it really taught me a lot of life lessons. One thing that I would change about this school would be its student to administration communication skills. Even though the staff communicate well with each other, I cannot say the students are always heard out or have their ideas took into consideration. But like I said every school isn't perfect and that's okay.
