This is a small school with huge expectations. I am about to start my senior year here and everyday I become more and more thankful to be a student here. The teachers genuinely care about the students, both mentally and academically. AOT challenges students, but sets them up for success. Overall, this is an amazing school!

Academy of Tucson is an excellent college prep school. Not only do you receive one on one help from teachers but there is also a sense of equality. Students from many different backgrounds come to this school and are welcomed with open arms. With a total number of students of about 160, this small school environment is perfect for the developing of minds. The teachers actually care about the performance of each student as well as their health. When I don't understand a concept or start to fall behind, I can immediately go to a teacher and they make time for me. The only thing that needs to improve is the resources. The school lacks certain resources in order for students to be more prepared once graduated. I have been in this school district since kindergarten and am now senior so I am confident to recommend this school to anyone looking for a challenging and stimulating high school.
Attending this high school for all 4 years, I like to think I have a relatively decent idea of the type of teachers that I have encountered. This school is relatively small, with less than a total of 200 students, and as one could imagine, there were not that many teachers needed. The volleyball coach is also the government teacher, just like the Spanish teacher doubles as the French teacher, and so forth. That being said, I have no complaints or critiques against the teachers with the exception of the limited thinking placed upon the students. The students are encouraged to go to community college, and are not driven by the teachers to expect much out of their performance. I believe that with an environment such as this one, if students are not being pushed by their parents or their teachers, in order to thrive in the real world, they would have to depend on an innate drive, which many of us do not gain at the ripe age of 13, going into high school. There is this lack of purpose (I feel) to attend a reputable university and even a lack of motivation from the teacher's end to push the students to truly do their best. Other than this one flaw I see in the teachers, I love this school and the close-knit learning environment!
