As a student, it was a great experience this school is really one of the best schools in my opinion in the United States! The students and staff are phenomenal, they make sure that everyone is in checked no matter whether they’re a teacher or student to receive the best knowledge and education for their future. There’s always new clubs and new activities and they’re always actively engaging with the students… But, the only bad thing I have to say about the school is it is very strict, and they enforce a lot of things such as your hair and clothes.

I am a senior at Mckeel Academy of Technology and have been attending this school since seventh grade. The school has grown a lot over the years. The teachers have always been willing to help help us if we want to boost our grades and retake tests we didn’t do good on. In addition, as a member of three sports teams, I can say that although the sports program isn’t the best out there, there is room for improvement and I’m sure the facility will take this into consideration over the next few years. I did however definitively enjoy the wide variety of clubs and after school activities available. I especially like the resources the guidance counselors provided including scholarship and community service opportunities.
