My experience at Charter School for Applied Technologies was tremendous. It's a great school to attend and the school's curriculum is straight-forward. Your teachers and staff refuse to let any of the students fail, and it's almost impossible to fail and failure isn't an option when it comes to this amazing academic infrastructure. They offer intervention after school for children that can use any additional help from teachers, and it's a a chance of redemption if you ever missed out on anything important in class. Overall i recommend parents to enroll their children into that school, children can actually excel with various of life skills that are being taught. They offer business in marketing classes, they offer internships and Seminars. They offer barbell clubs, boys & girls clubs, and along with other after school activities.

The teachers at CSAT are fantastic! However, some of the higher staff members, like administration, have a weird type of favoritism for some students who don’t behave like they should. The way they handle dress code is also unnecessary, since they will either not let you get lunch for being out of dress code, or they will make you get out of class to do so, which wastes time. It’s also annoying to have to buy a pair of all black sneakers or shoes.
I have attended the Charter School for Applied Technologies for the past five years. I have met many new and interesting people, and also have made connections with companies that will help me in the future with my education and career. I, myself, feel accepted there, however, I feel as though they could put more effort into making students feel safe and understood.
