Alliance Cindy & Bill Simon Technology Academy High School Reviews

Simon tech was a fairly compact school, therefore, there was not much space for activities. Although these limitations, the school made it work by holding events at "the cave". The cave was essentially a preexisting parking lot converted into an auditorium, gym, lunch area, and a recreation area. The classes felt person in a sense since they were small enough for teachers to focus on the students individually and personally get to know them. However, some teachers did not exactly seem to be cut out for the job for reasons varying from laziness, lack of professionalism, unorganized lessons, and/or failure to properly instruct or assist students. For these reasons simontech was not the best school but it made for a enjoyable time and somewhat pleasant learning experience.

I wouldn't like to change anything. The school has great teachers/staff, good classes and good safety. The teachers are nice and trustworthy when it comes to personal problems or academic problems. They help out a lot when it has to do with our grades and when we want to raise it up, the teachers make sure we complete our work. The staff is always pushing the students to do their best. The safety in the school is good as well, they always make sure all students feel safe in school. I wouldn't change anything in the school, they have good resources and they prepare all the students fully.
Attending Alliance Cindy & Bill Simon Technology Academy High School, I have learned and experienced a lot of things. Being in a small school is an advantage because the teachers focus and care a lot about the students, and ensure that they are prepared for college. My school offers an abundant amount of AP classes, and some college courses. Since ninth grade, I felt prepared for college because my teachers motivate me to excel higher in class, and they also give us vigorous tasks in class.
