Atlantic County Institute of Technology Reviews
Great environment to be in. I have made lots of friends and I find it very safe to be in. When you become a student at ACIT, it is just a great feeling. All teachers are extremely helpful when it is truly needed.
What I like about ACIT is everything, I learn a lot and I feel as though if I went to my home school I wouldn't have learned as much. I love that you can choose your academy and there are way more options than a regular highschool.
I'm the 2nd student in my family to go here. ACIT combines academics and technology to teach real life skills daily. They have made tremendous progress in all of their programs. I love being a student here and love the opportunities I am given on a daily basis.
I like this school because there are a lot of ethnic and religious diversity and different people that come to the school. But one thing that I would like to change is for the teachers to have more of an open ear to students (if their being bullied).
What I like about ACIT was that it is very secured. The people and staff in this school are so helpful. They are always there if you need to talk to someone. The teacher are incredible and that are getting me ready to go out in the real word and experience what the real world is like. The sports here are excellent. We have so much school spirit in this school its incredible.
This school has developed me into the person I am today. In middle school, I wasn't much of a kid who really cared about school and I was fine with ending the year with A's and B's. However, while I've been at this school, I've improved myself academically so much because I took many honors and AP courses, which I had a very enjoyable and expedential time with these classes. Most of the kids I've met are fine, but there are some who really scare you like they say or do things that aren't normal at all. Another problem we have is not enough school spirit for sure. Other than that, I would say the experience is interesting and worthwhile. Going into my senior year now and I don't think I would've wanted to go to another school except this one.
I was at this school all 4 years and it was a great experience for me. The school is very strict in the aspects of education and professionalism and I think that's it good to be strict on these thing because it prepares you for the real world and real life situations.
Atlantic county institute of technology is amazing with career.I love how they give each student a opportunity to pursue what they love. There are many choices of academies and the graduation rate is outstanding. You can learn so much from this school and there are so many clubs and activities to choose from.Its filled with talented students and even teachers from all over.They teach you all you need to know about college and career planning, so you'll be ready for your future!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at A.C.I.T. so far. I feel that I am being prepared for college by my teachers. All of the staff and administration are extremely kind and helpful. Especially, the school librarian Mrs. Ojserkis, whom we all lovingly refer to as Mrs. O. The staff go above and beyond to ensure the well-being of us students and truly care about us. I have learned many lessons that I feel I will apply to life after graduation. The new Principal Mr. Potkay is a welcomed addition to the school and does an amazing job of staying connected and recognizing the student body for our accomplishments. He always greets everyone in the hall and knows a lot of the students on a personal level and mentions their involvement in extra-curricular activities when he sees them. I love my school! The only thing that needs some improvement is that I wish that more of my classmates shared my sense of schools spirit.
Compared to other schools, they are much less involved in the college search process. The teachers are hit or miss. Some teachers are really great and others really do not care about your education. The athletics are getting better as the school expands but we are not allowed to appreciate them since we CAN’T STAY AFTER TO WATCH THE GAMES. School spirit is prohibited at ACIT. Administration seems to care more about minuscule rules than troubled kids who actually need discipline. One of the best things about ACIT is the fact that you choose an academy that prepares you for education/job after high school. The only problem is that kids parents force them into picking a certain academy and you have a whole class of kids who really do not want to be there. This makes for a toxic learning environment. Teachers can’t teach to the best of their ability in this environment. A major flaw is that kids are not allowed to change their academy after a very short time period freshman year.
ACIT is a good school if you are looking for ways to prepare yourself for high school. It is one of the best schools if you are looking to academically challenge yourself for the better.
This school is different from other high schools. It has all of the classes every high school student needs like english, math,history and sciences. This school also has classes to help you with your future careers. We have classes for medical assisting, health sciences, IT, cosmetology and more. These classes are taught by teachers who recently worked in these fields and are wanting to teach high school students what they have learned and to help us become successful. I am in the medical assisting program at Atlantic County Institute of technology and I have learned a lot in this field and I am now a certified medical assistant at the age of 18. I had a great experience in my 4 years of being in this school.
It is a good school, but I feel like I missed out on the whole high school experience. It feels like I am attending a college rather than a highschool.
I was enrolled in the Math, Science and Engineering program. In my freshman year, I really enjoyed it. Tenth grade through my senior year, I was very unhappy with the program and the teacher who runs it. I was unable to change my academy so I was either forced to stick it out or change schools. I didn't want to change schools, so I stuck it out. I never got any better. If given the chance again, I would have not chosen that academy and possibly chosen a different school. It became very overcrowded as well, I was unhappy with the class sizes.
Really good! I enjoy the experience, it gives me good skills and qualities that I will be able to learn more about in the future.
I was finally able to find my passion at this school! I learned that I loved fashion design. I was able to to take part in 4 fashion shows plus a couple small ones during the holidays. I received amazing lessons on fashion, fabric and sewing. I completed trend forecasts and loved my teachers endlessly. On top of this school having different academies to study in, the vibe of this school is so family oriented. We cherished friendships and community. During my high school experience I struggled with the loss of all of my hair. I found so much guidance through teachers, guidance counselors and the students. This truly was a blessing in disguise though. I found love, passion, and amazing experiences.
It's honestly an awful school. The teachers don't care about your success, they spend money in all the wrong places, the food is terrible, the clubs/activities are run haphazardly, and overall I just had a horrible experience here.
