Phelps Architecture, Construction, and Engineering High School Reviews

Phelps exposed me to the NAF Academy, which opened doors for me by giving me exposure to my future engineering career through paid internships and extracurricular clubs. I think what should really be different about Phelps is the student population. I think all students deserve to have hands-on experience for any career of their choice before college. Phelps is the perfect place for the opportunity.

Phelps ACE High School is overall a good school to attend if your interests are one of the graduation pathways that they offer. These include Architecture, Engineering, and Construction. The student body is small which is great due to the fact that classes have a smaller student-to-teacher ratio. This leads to more 1-on-1 instruction and a more individualized learning style. One thing that should be altered about the school is more counselors because currently, one counselor services the whole school and this isn't the best because this makes her unavailable to do important tasks a lot of the time. Overall, I would recommend Phelps to anyone who is looking for a career in the STEM field after graduation because our programs will really boost this person's success,
My school may not be the best school in the District, but its one of the best school l have ever attended. School should not just be about what the kid learn but how conformable he is in learning and the environment should be pure relaxing and my school bring that joys to my face overtime l walk in there. One hing i would love to see change in my school is the lack of activities and sports, we have kids who have so much talent but refused to join any activity curriculum.
