I absolutely loved my time at AACAL! It has prepared me so well for my future in medicine. Through this school I had hands on experience in medicine and got an amazing job opportunity in a doctors office immediately after I graduated high school. AACAL has made me feel ready to go into college because I already know so much about medicine so I believe that it will be easier. I loved all of the staff and every teacher I had would go out of their way to make sure I learned and comprehended the work correctly, they truly care about student's success. The only thing I could change about AACAL is for it to have a larger facility as it is growing so much.

I attended the Amarillo Area Center for Advanced my freshman year through senior year in high school in order to work on my medical assistant certification. I truly enjoyed attending AACAL because I had the opportunity to get a head start in the medical field and begin to gain knowledge. The instructors for the specialties were very knowledgeable but for the core subjects offered not so much. Their approach to switch t a technology only education was a bad and failed approach, causing much stress on students impacting their grades and creating a poor learning environment.
Teachers for Specialties are spectacular and very knowledgeable about their fields. They help students succeed every way they know possible, and also fundraise to give seniors scholarships. They have team-building trips during the year, and make the school feel like a family separate from the rest of the school district. It does take some a while to put in grades though, but they will be in before the end of the six weeks period. The vast majority of science and math teachers are stellar and available for tutoring, but some aren't quite as knowledgeable and so caution may be needed in scheduling which teacher you receive.
