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.

As a student of Atech's class of 2019, my impression of this school has not wavered from its positive light. Advanced Technologies Academy is a small school of about 1300 students. The education model is that of a magnet education and a career technical format; therefore, the teenagers in attendance are undoubtedly one of the brightest and most talented individuals in the state of Nevada. Students here major in Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Business, Law, Graphic Design, Architecture, and other capable fields. My personal experience consists of multiple Advanced Placement classes because this school strongly encourages participation in college-level curriculum. In addition, the relationship between teachers and students are practically representative of family. I cannot have selected a better school than Atech in Nevada because the culture in this school pushes, drives, and motivates me to achieve success in a competitive and challenging environment.
A-Tech is an exceptional school that provides students with all the tools necessary for success. It offers program areas like computer science and engineering, and many electives from language to the arts. There are also many Advanced Placement classes that allow us to gain college credit while still in high school. As proud, ambitious Mavericks, we learn that our school will help us with everything we need. This includes, but is not limited to SAT and ACT preparation, scholarship opportunities, and college and career planning, searching, and matching. While academically we are sated, I personally feel that our school could have more spirit. We have spirit weeks and assemblies, but not many students participate. If only our school was as strong in spirit as we are in our test scores, I would rate five stars in a heartbeat. Nonetheless, I strongly recommend Advanced Technologies Academy to any middle schooler who wants to attend a school with a good education and plenty of resources.
