Every student is free to create or join any type of club. There is a variety of clubs that other traditional schools may not have, like the Debate Club, Encouragement in Christ Club, or Gardening Club. There is a long list of organizations from which to choose from so nobody is left out. Many teachers also create their own clubs, usually clubs that deal with the community, which help students acquire community hours. Whenever one of these community dedicated clubs plan and invite students to an event, an overwhelmingly amount of students participate!

Attending Achieve has been a wonderful experience. You meet extraordinary people, including the staff, and for the first time view your school as a second home or family. There is no other school that is as united as Achieve's staff and student body. My favorite experiences occur in and out of the classroom. In class, every one is professional and makes sure the lessons are enjoyable and interesting through comments and questions. Outside of the classroom, we treat each other as family and make sure that others are caught up with their classes and responsibilities. I would surely attend Achieve all over again because it would guide me through a bright path once again.
One can easily tell Achieve Early College teachers are passionate about teaching. They greet their students full-heartedly and make sure that every student is listened to. Students become intrigued with the lessons because the teachers actively teach. My teachers always encourage students to question, comment, and share insightful thoughts. They create a happy classroom environment since they are happy to do what they are doing. They grade properly and are always free to consult with their students over their grades.
