Crooms AoIT is a magnet school dedicated to the pursuit of technology in the workplace as well as technical careers. If you want to go into a technical field Crooms AoIT is perfect due to the school having its own Internship Expo, allowing students to have a guranteed payed internship and experience. Furthermore, Crooms provides a wide array of certification to Microsoft Office to Java, including college courses provided by Seminole State College and University of Central Florida. However, Crooms is weak in the area of art and language. The school only have two languages French (1 & 2) and Spanish (1,2, & 3) with no AP languages.

Crooms is a very high achieving high school. It is extremely well behaved and it is a good school. I have been attending this school since my Junior year in high school. You need to have at least a 2.5 GPA to remain in the school or you could be put on academic probation if they deem you capable of coming back and redeeming yourself. I say this is a great school, last year was my first year at the school and I had obtained four certifications which were, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Powerpoint. The teachers are very hands-on as well in this school, but the guidance counselors are the absolute best, they go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need in preparation of college or any other basic needs. My guidance counselor got me an emotional support counselor, for my new found anxiety which helped me a lot. Crooms overall is a very good school.
I've been attending Crooms Academy of Information Technology since I enrolled in 2016, and it's one of the best experiences I have had in a school, period. Furthermore, it has the best community of people from all over Florida and is great if you are at all interested in anything digital for your career. However, since it focuses heavily on technology, there is barely any attention given to sports. All in all, it's great for a select group of people, but not everyone.
