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.

Overall, I love my school. I could not picture going anywhere else. It may have its weak spots sometimes, as we all do, but overall I am grateful I go here. There is a small tight knit environment. I know everyone in my grade level and a lot of the underclassmen. It is also nice to have senior privileges. The senior lounge is often a great place to enjoy the final days of my senior year with friends as well as being productive. The open campus policy which allows us to go out during lunch and our free periods is also very nice. I like that our school gives us freedom and does not treat us like prisoners. Sometimes, I feel that the students aren't heard or taken seriously, however this seems to be a problem with most schools. Overall, the staff and student relationships are good as is the environment.
I love AITE with a passion. Before applying and getting accepted, I attended two very large public schools. I can say with confidence that AITE is an amazing, family-like community that strives itself to improve every individual to make themselves their best selves; it truly cannot compare to my past experiences with other surrounding school districts. Instead of making sure the school looks good on paper (focusing attention and money on top students), our school focuses on every student individually and makes sure students with special needs, learning disabilities, and even challenges get the same level of education as every one else. Of course our school is known for its strong engineering and biomedical sciences program, but I’m in neither and can proudly say that; other programs at our schools our just as good.
