This school was a challenge and it really prepared me for college. This school was really what I needed. There were however times were I felt extremely overwhelmed because I wanted to be involved in an after school activity that was not in someway based on academia. I loved this school but if they added some extra curricular activities; this school would be the best!

At ATC high school students get an experience that most high school students do not get: a technical certificate. ATC is not only a magnet high school, but also a technical college in which you can earn technical certificates. During high school students junior and senior year, students choose one technical corse to persue and by the time they graduate they have completed this course and received this certificate. This gives students more of an access to the real world and also some access on careers. This may boost some students careers and show others that this is not the field for them. I am so grateful to be accepted into this school to receive an orthopedic and EKG certification when I graduate high school for no cost! I am very excited to get started on these programs next school year.
I liked that ATC offers technical programs for high school students to complete. After they graduate, they are able to join the industry workforce. These programs offer a myriad of experiences for students who may not even know what they want to do after high school. It can give a taste of what a certain career path is like. One thing that should change is providing AP courses in the first semester of the school year since the AP exam is in May. Students are left for another semester before they take the test, which reflects poorly on AP scores.
