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.

When I first entered AITE in September of 2014, I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I shopped around. AITE offers an extensive engineering program through Project Lead The Way - so I enrolled in their introduction to engineering club. I liked the course and the instructor and also working with the 3D modeling software but it wasn't the right fit for me. I tried a multiple of business classes, which really sparked my interests into becoming an entrepreneur. I also really enjoyed the Cisco Networking classes they provided and I think it gave me a solid idea of what I want to do in the future. Overall, great academic school, high standards. Small clubs, smaller environment though. Many students prefer it that way.
The Academy of Information Technology and Engineering is a great school overall. We have classes that not many high schools have such as Medical Interventions, Sports and Entertainment Management, Multimedia, Arabic, and a lot more. We are advanced when it comes to variety in course selection. There will always be a class pertaining to any major, and if not, students are allowed to take a class online with Virtual High School. The teachers are excellent in providing students with college readiness. AITE is fantastic, however there are some minor setbacks, such as no sports teams and limited after school activities. But overall the experience at AITE is advanced because of the expansive classes, and admirable because of faculty, staff, and students.
