The Academy for Mathematics, Science & Engineering Reviews

It’s a great school for those wanting a STEM experience before reaching college, regardless of the fact that they may not want to pursue an engineering, or science field as their career. However, the classes are extremely rigorous, and if are not committed 101%, you should reconsider your choice to enroll. Regardless, the school is fruitful and wildly exciting because of all the like-minded students and faculty all ready to help!

Going to this school allowed me to become acquainted with 3-D printing. I spent weeks upon weeks tirelessly exploring every aspect of the printing software during lunch blocks. I would come in then and make models to satisfy the ridiculous ideas in my head. I had the opportunity to design whatever I imagined in the endless world of SolidWorks. From futuristic cars to triangular frisbees, I built it all.

However, my love for engineering was not the only thing that blossomed at this new school. I surrounded myself with other classmates that took pleasure in the same triumphs and worked to solve rigorous problems alongside me. Our involvement in engineering projects throughout our four years forged unbreakable friendships and taught us invaluable life lessons. We had developed a strong bond that allowed us to work together to develop projects we could only dream of accomplishing alone.
Being a part of the Academy has definitely influenced the person I am today. Because of the small class size and excellent faculty, I've been provided with so many wonderful opportunities and have been able to flourish, all while being part of a family that I will forever cherish. While stressful at times, I believe the Academy prepares you extremely well for college, especially those who wish to pursue engineering in the future. It's also great that Academy students take classes with students at Morris Hills, allowing them to not be strictly restricted to being with their Academy peers and have the opportunity to get involved in larger clubs and sports teams.
