My first year here was amazing! I love the overall atmosphere at the school, and how driven for success my peers and I are. Everyone is trying their best to succeed and know that they are this school for that precise reason. The teachers are amazing, and learning is a very fun adventure here. Although academics are very big here, there are also fun activities that help students destress and have fun. From Board Game Club Marathons to all the amazing festivals and rallies, there are many pursuits for students outside of academics. I truly enjoyed going to school everyday.

My experience at A-Tech has been great! I went from being a quiet and reserved person freshmen year to being confident and outgoing my senior year, I truly think this was thanks to A-Tech's friendly environment. You would be surprised by how inclusive and friendly students here are. I especially love the fact that there seems to be very litle separation between grades as people make close friends in every grade and underclassmen aren't afraid to approach upper classmen for help.
Life at Advanced Technologies Academy has been mostly splendid. The teachers show strong commitment to teaching their students in an effective and creative manner. Most schools can not offer the same opportunities that Atech does. Atech offers a wide spread of AP classes in most subjects such at AP Stats, AP Biology, and AP European History. The Student Council spreads school spirit in a creative and fun way for their peers. The only thing I would change about my school is adding sports. We do have athletic clubs like Soccer club and Ultimate Frisbee club but I would like to see a well established sports program that offers scholarships. Overall, Advanced Technologies Academy is the best school for any student that looks for an academic challenge.
