My son went here for one year. The academics are average at best, about on par with public schools that I've seen. There are a large number of ESL students, so that could be a reason the school can't have a more rigorous curriculum. The daily cadet life is very lax, which shocked me because it is a military school. There are a lot of rules, but they are only sporadically enforced. The cadets have a tremendous amount of unsupervised free time. If your son is self-motivated and an excellent time manager, he will likely do well. If he needs some prodding here and there to stay on track, he will go off track quickly because there is very little oversight. Another big negative is the drug use, which is HUGE. Whenever I would talk to the administration about drugs, they would always claim "drugs are everywhere," and "we don't have a bigger drug problem than other schools." I strongly disagree! Drug use is much more common among students at this school than any other high school I’ve seen.

I came into the Academy with nothing. I was at the bottom as useless as could be and I remember waking through the hall and some guy freaked out at me yelling and I didn't know why... And the guy next to me said "you have to salute him"... I said "how do I know to salute him?" He said "from the gold band" (motioning toward the gold band on his Garrison cap) and I said "how do I get one of those?" And he laughed almost to say you'll never get one... I left a Captain, Platoon Commander, Delta Company With A Gold Band and a Gold Banded Saber with an Entire Battalion Saluting Me in Parades, Twice Corded Tutor in Advanced Placement College Level Trigonometry & Pre-Calculus, Government & Civics... That's not even getting into it ;)!
I began attending ANA when I was 11 years old. I was considered bright for my age and had some potential, but I lacked discipline and was spoiled. I've always been told that the military system is to break someone down and build them back up, but the incredible teachers and staff that I met never tried to break me. Instead, they instilled in me the importance of good discipline, a lifelong love of learning, and a strong sense of honor.

That's not something I would've gained at any other high school on the West Coast.

Every teenager has their ups and downs. Not every day was perfect, and I had to study hard, learn to accept criticism, and really commit myself to the school's mission in order to succeed. I still look back at Army and Navy Academy as one of the absolute high points of my life.
