The students at this school all share some sort of interconnectivity. There are no cases of bullying that I have seen, and all students treat each other equally and with kindness! As for the learning environment at A-TECH, the classes provide a challenging yet engaging course. The teachers are very helpful and supportive towards students, and all of the teachers are extremely fit to be teaching. I have had no problems with receiving a good education here at A-TECH. The clubs and activities at A-TECH are one of the main attributes A-TECH is known for. With around 60 clubs and activities, there is a place for every student to fit in. Many of the clubs started at A-TECH have been started by students with their own personal interests, so they really do provide a place for any student to fit into, and the diversity of clubs at this school is unlike any other high school.

Advanced Technologies Academy is a decent school but the location and building are dated and inconvenient for most. There is little school spirit and as a magnet school there is no sports program. The biggest benefit may be the school's community of like-minded academically focused students ,however, it should be noted that such an environment is not for everybody. Teachers here tend to be either exceptional or disappointing and the administration has lots of new faces as of recent who are a bit incompetent. The student representatives for the school tend to do a great job selling the school as the unequaled top school in Nevada but in all honesty you will get a very similar or better experience from some of the other magnet schools in Clark (especially if you do not live nearby the school). All in all A-TECH is not a bad school but its not a fantastic school to be at either.
Although the school definitely has its downsides, I cannot deny the fact that A-TECH has given me the best education possible in the area. Having recently graduated near the top of my class, I admit that my opinion of the school may be slightly biased, but I always felt appreciated and supported by teachers during these past four years. For those considering attending: This is the best school in the area, but do not be surprised when teachers actually want you to challenge yourself... or when certain teachers make you seriously question how they got a degree in teaching. For the most part, classes are well structured, but each year except senior year I had 1 class whose teacher was questionably structured/taught.
