There wasn’t another school I wanted to go and I was excited to come here, but this school is definitely not perfect. My biggest complaints are with administration and teachers. The administration here is laughable. They don’t do much and everyone knows it. I wish they cared more and were better at there jobs but it doesn’t seem like they’ll be changing anytime soon. Also, some of the teachers here are laughable as well. Some are creepy, have had multiple strikes on their file for various concerning reasons, don’t know how to teach, or just generally don’t like kids. Despite that, there are a couple of teachers who are really passionate about their job and make learning fun! All in all, I’m still glad I went here but there were things I would change.

I've had a great time at AITE. I've made so many friends at school and it is a very supportive and collaborative environment. Most teachers are always willing to help you or put in a good word on a recommendation, etc. However, there are some teachers few and far that I have had poor experiences with. Classes are challenging, but fun. The building is relatively new and modern. However, there are no sports teams, as you need to be bused to your district high school to play for their team. Perhaps most concerning about the school is the frequently malfunctioning technology at a "technology school." Otherwise, my experience at AITE has been awesome.
It’s a pretty good school. Classes are tough, but I think it will prepare us for college. Most teachers are good and are helpful. I don’t recommend the Spanish teachers, they aren’t good at all. We have no sports and no school spirit. If you’re educationally oriented, this is the school to go to. I’m all about my education so I don’t mind it. I wish we would have more fun activities though. The school is fairly diverse in race but I don’t think as much when it comes to financial status.
