Academy of Tucson High School Reviews

80 reviews

I enjoy the school's small class sizes. Since the school is small, teachers are readily available to help students. Academy of Tucson offers many AP courses and honors credit opportunities. Despite some differences, everyone usually gets along. Even though people tend to stay in their own group, AoT is not huge on cliques. Although it is a small school, there are many extracurricular opportunities. I also feel safer here than if I were to attend a TUSD school. However, there should be an indoor cafeteria for rainy days. Whenever it is rainy, the students have to continue eating outside or go in one of the available classrooms. There should also be a cover for the outdoor hallway. Whenever it is rainy passing period, the rain pours on everyone since there is no overall cover. This is troublesome when you are trying to get items out of your locker. The umbrellas over the lunch tables are the only cover.

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.
