The school is fairly new and can improve with few changes. It is focused on four career "pathways" (health, PALS, CHEF, and ACE) which makes them unique and desirable. However, I feel a lack structure and opportunities that other high schools obtain. For one, they do not have sports or AP classes, which I feel like would help students achieve and accomplish their goals. The school is supposed to be technology and career-focused, however, the student body does not represent it. There are plenty of high achieving students attending, but the majority of students are just like their peers at neighboring schools. My experience here has been wonderful, but perhaps with changes and expansions, could it have been perfect. Nonetheless, if you have passion and drive, ATC is a wonderful environment where you could thrive.

This school helped me develop many necessary social skills and real world skills. This is a project-based-learning school, which means projects are assigned constently. Due to that I had to develop presenting, group,and leadership skills. These skills heped me be better prepared from my college classes and work.
My experiences at this school have been a prodigious part of the person who I am today. This high school has been a fun experiences with friends, teachers, and education. Throughout the three years I have been here I would say that the enjoyment of having this school has been descent because the only thing missing would be sports which will create a copious amount and will ameliorate the school more.
