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.

What I like overall about my school is the academic curriculum they offer to us students to succeed. The teachers here are friendly and thrive to make us students excel in school so that we can accomplish our lifelong goals in life. Advanced Technology Academy is the go-to school. The clubs offered here help students earn scholarships and boost their moral character. Advanced Technology Academy offers the three career paths learning: Pre-Nursing, Pre-Engineering, and Business. These give us a lift to what we should expect in the future when we graduate.
I enjoyed the variety of technology-filled subjects to be studied at this school, but not all teachers seemed to be fully knowledgeable in the courses that they were teaching. I spent much of my time on websites that teach the subject I was learning after being instructed to do so by the teacher of our course. I did not feel I gained much knowledge technology wise that could not have been gained anywhere else. The general education courses were decent with overall nice teachers. The school did not offer sports, but made up for that in clubs and fun activities.
