Astec Charter High School Reviews

I came here with false hopes and promises. I came to ASTEC because the school really tried to show off their "state of the art" technology labs along with its filming classes. This school is basically only functioning because of the teachers and it really shows once they leave. I had three different teachers for a single year of Computer Science. Each one brought the supplies we needed, both software and hardware. Once they left we would be stuck doing filler work that didn't have much to with the class. That same year I had a total of six different teachers for Competitive Speech. It was difficult to say the least. A new one would come in and the class would have to fill them in on exactly what was happening. At this point I am just happy for the teachers I do have as they have helped greatly with stuff that isn't even under their subject. I know for a fact I won't recommend anyone to ASTEC.

The things I like about ASTEC is the faculty, the teachers are kind and helpful when you need it, you can really get a connection with teachers, and they treat you like adults, with respect. Another thing that I like about ASTEC is the opportunities that they provide for their students like scholarships, community service, and assistance for anything you need. An issue that ASTEC has is that ASTEC is a Charter school, which means it has to provide its own funding which may show a lack of materials for students and teachers, but that doesn't stop the teachers from trying their best to give their students the best education they deserve. The Rowing team is my favorite sports team at our school.
I've attended ASTEC Charter High School since freshman year. The teachers are strict but they really teach well. Each year at ASTEC, I've been motivated by my teachers to succeed in my education. I have matured greatly and have became a better student because of them. I dislike the fact that our dress code is so strict to the point where we have to change shoes if they're not a solid black or white. It's not effective because students do not obey the dress code rules enough. We also lack school spirit since students easily get annoyed by the rules and regulations.
