This is a great opportunity to get advanced education and earn college credits while still in high school. There is some amazing staff and the school will work with you if you approach them about an issue. However, you aren't informed that in order to graduate with an AA you will have to take college courses during the summer on your own. I also wish that you could have specialized the degree program to better suit your own needs, unless you are going in the veterinary program there isn't much extra guidance. There was also a large rotation of a lot of teachers which was unsettling for us students. There is a lot great things about this school, but it isn't perfect. The long term benefits are definitely worth it.

At Arizona Agribusiness & Equine Center(AAEC-EM), I am able to earn college credits towards my associate's degree and this is a great advantage at the school because it allows myself to get ahead of the other students and receiving my associate degree faster. When I was scheduling for my class, my principal allowed me to choose the time I desired to start and end so it can work with my college schedule as well. The staffs and teacher are attentive to my needs and motivate me to earn high grades. Overall the school is a great place to receive an education and make friends where you are all close to one another.
I personally enjoy the student engagement, seeing students interact with one another as well as growing to their full potential. Teachers are engaged and always willing to help students in need. They become your best friends, class sizes are small since it is a smaller campus. Yet, free college classes offered at the community college next door are a major bonus!
