I thought the staff were caring and motivated. I found the classes to be very relaxed and didn't thought they were stressful to attend. The best thing about my experience was my teacher. She seemed to genuinely care about teaching. Unfortunately, she felt limited by the rigid rules set upon her, but she did what she could to make the class worthwhile and knowledgeable. What also helped was having the company of one of my best friends. He and I helped each other when the going got tough. His company made the experience enjoyable. Overall, I think AAA is a good school despite their shortcomings with regards to things like funding.

the teachers pretty much know what they are talking about.i dont really like that they only know one subject so if i need help with a subject they dont know about then i have to wait for a teacher that does know it help me.
