ATC Technical High School Reviews

My experience has been great so far! It was not what I initially expected when I applied. If you are involved you will have fun. It is what you make it. Regarding school work, it is rigorous as you climb to each grade. I am a junior and have 5 hours of homework daily. Your homework depends on the type of classes you have. It is best to make sure your mental health is always best because sometimes it is the only way you will get through. Students all understand how the technical programs work and take this opportunity seriously. Even though you are with adults because it is a college they CAN NOT talk to you for safety reasons, which is why we wear uniforms as well. Lastly, bullying does not happen because everyone is nice. I give my school a 4 out of 5 because it could be better with educating us on how expensive college is and future fiances.

ATC is not an ideal school for a thriving student. They don't push their students to their fullest capability. It's almost as if you're stuck in a box. Counselors are very lazy and don't provide you with all sources that can actually benefit you. They make you take classes whether you want to or not. For example, APCS was a forced class that every sophomore had to be in and the teacher was absolutely horrible. She did nothing. There are only a handful of good teachers and the rest do nothing. ATC provides no sports for their students and only a handful of clubs. Colleges don't only like academics but they also like to see an involved student. It's in your best interest that you don't go here.
ATC Technical High School gives you a mediocre high school experience since the school is pretty small. There is a lot of technology available since we pretty are a tech-savvy school. There are minimal clubs to join. They try to have sports, but not in the same way as regular high schools. Parents are not really involved in much. There are basically no ways to express yourself through music or art. The diversity is pretty good. They do have different resources to get you college ready. Security guards are always on campus, as well as a police officer. The bathrooms could use some updating, but the food here isn't too bad.
