Review Aerospace/Hydrospace Engineering & Physical Sciences at the Fairchild Wheeler Campus
My school is so unique in so many ways like the fact that it is a bran new school that opened when I entered the 9th grade, but the one thing that stands out the most is probably the technology we are using. Students in all grade levels can use equipment such as 3D printers, air tunnels, electron microscopes, 3D holographic technology, green screens, and even robots. Also, the fact that the school has early college experience provides students with classes that are offered normally at universities like the University of Connecticut, Sacred Heart University, Universitiy of Bridgeport, and much more. These classes allow students to get college credit before they even go to a college. With that said my school is just about education in fact my favorite moment at school was when we have sport tournament when students get to mop the floor with the teachers. With that all said I wouldn't want to choose any other school besides this one even if I had a chance to do it all over again.
There are a couple teachers I can think of who do a great job and continue to do a great job. They're knowledgeable and care about the students they're teaching, inside and outside is school. However, since I started attending this school I've noticed they have a problem with hiring adequate people to teach students. These people are hard to work with as students and, particularly the ones who are older, have trouble understanding students and their behaviors. Also, many of them clearly struggle with the technology-based environment the school is supposed to be, and that makes it hard for them to give us work and for us students to be able to hand in work. This has been a problem since my freshman year and it still continues to be a problem. The school isn't hiring well-qualified people and it affects our grades, which makes school life harder for us to deal with on a daily basis.
The ECE courses offered are alright, however the general classes are mostly science, history, math, and english so nothing special. You do learn at a faster pace than other schools which can be beneficial when you go to college, however it DOES affect when you take SATs (at least it did for me) because the information that the normal SAT taker would be learning at the time of the SAT, we had already learned in freshman year and early sophomore year, so with all the classes we had between that time the information wasn't relevant anymore and made the SAT harder for us since the information we needed we couldn't remember well. I've said already that the quality of the teachers is lacking, which affects the quality of the academics being taught and how us as students are able to respond to the academics. All in all the academics have both pros and cons.
