ATA high school is small so almost everybody who are in the same grade know each other. Students at Advanced Technology Academy are very nice. The teachers are amazing and set up time to work with students who struggle in class. There are computers almost in every class as well. The sports at ATA are soccer, basketball, volleyball, football, track, cross country, etc.. ATA HS has different career pathways: Business, Health Care, Computer Science, Engineering, Mechatronics/Robotics, and Education. You can choose your career path during your freshmen year. Then during you sophomore, junior, & senior year you take classes for that specific career path. You can even earn college credits in those classes. The clubs & activities at ATA have meetings on different days so you can be in almost all the clubs if you want. Overall Advanced Technology Academy is a great school that offers great opportunities.

I must say that my 4 years of high school at Advanced Technology was awesome! I love how they gave myself and other students the opportunity to learn beyond the classroom by giving us real-life scenarios and helping us to solve them. Especially with going into college straight from high school, we were able to learn about finances and what we should expect when dealing with financial aid and applying to universities and/or community colleges. I am glad to say that I have graduated from this school, and that i would recommend it to any other student.
I’ve been attending Advanced Technology Academy since the second grade. This school has changed over the years for the better. Each year offered students different opportunities to better their future. One of the many opportunities that ATA offeres is the Early Middle College program. In which they partner with Henry Ford College, to allow students to take college classes as well as high school class simultaneously. If completed, the student will receive their associates degree one year after they graduate high school. Overall, I’ve learned a lot over my stay. No school is “ Perfect ”, but ATA does everything in their power to ensure each student obtains the best education. I would recommend Advanced Technology Academy to anyone searching for a great school.
