Amarillo Area Center for Advanced Learning Reviews
The learning experiences there are unlike any others offered, AACAL provides for specific advantages in general fields like engineering and health science while also providing essential math and science classes. They also allow for students to get a head start in the work environment by designing classes to fit those environments.
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.
AACAL has several great programs to offer for career jobs right out of high school. I'm going to get my EKG certfication next semester. You get plenty of hands on experience, and a realistic view of specific careers. It's a great school.
I am a transfer student from a different district in town and I had the opportunity to go to AACAL for two consecutive years. I went for the health science program and it was the best decision I could have made for me.
AACAL offers National Technical Honor Society NTHS
Unique school that helps students for their future
Extremely knowledgeable, All care for success
This school has given me the opportunity to have a specialized job right out of high school. The knowledge and opportunities it has given me are irreplaceable. Because of this school I can put myself through college. My favorite experience is making a trebuchet in Physics for a contest, naming it, and dressing up as a team to launch it. Even though I only go to this school for 3 classes a day, I consider it more of a school than my main high school.
A great opprotunity, if you don't mind the blatant favrotism.
Some teachers help and some don't
The nurses don't really help with anything
We have some nice technology.
Amarillo High has many athletic opportunities and we win at almost everything.
The clubs are not that fun or interesting
I go to two schools, Amarillo High and AACAL. AACAL is amazing and I have no problems with it, but Amarillo High is not so good. The teachers and students don't really care.
The principals are involved and caring.
