The Academy for Mathematics, Science & Engineering Reviews
So far in my career as a high school student attending the Academy For Mathematics, Science, and Engineering, I have had many pleasant experiences and many learning opportunities. This school maintains its academic reputation with challenging courses and a huge workload, but it also is unique in the regard of class size. In my 26 student class, we have made bonds that extend out of the classroom, and are beneficial in developing each of us as human beings. Some of the teachers, such as Mr. Schuenzel, also focus on teaching lessons about life instead of only reading the scripted lesson plan. However, this style of school is both a blessing and a curse, as it places immense amounts of stress on the students. Many of my friends are forced to ruin their sleep schedules and cancel social plans to study. In addition, the school administration assumes that students who join this program have already decided their career path in Engineering, and there is very little exposure to other fields.
The Academy is an incredibly rigorous, cutthroat school. Most students are very hardworking and have high GPAs. Although it fosters an environment of academia, it does become too intense at points and could affect the students' mental health. Also, the downfall to this is that students are so focused on studies and are sheltered in this little group of 20 that it is rare for any to venture into the social sphere and try doing new things, hindering their social and emotional development.
There's a good variety of clubs that stretch over multiple subjects. We have a good number of volunteer-work clubs (Key Club, HOPE Club, etc.)m science clubs (chemistry club, Science Olympiad, physics club), and language clubs (Spanish, French, and German). I feel like there are clubs that have very dedicated advisors and ones that have ones who couldn't care less. There are also a lot of honor societies students can apply for (science, social studies, english, math, national, art, language, business, and music)
