I entered AWTY my Juniot year and was surprised by how easily I was able to fit in. The students are all incredibly kind and accepting. The school is very rigorous academicly and doesnt offer alot of help or support to struggling students. The faculty is also very grade oriented and so, students rarely recieve acknowledgement for their inquisitiveness and creativity, the school instead rewards memorization and a compartmentalized form of thought. In my experience AWTY is a school with teaches students to fear being wrong, and if children and young adults begin to fear the possibility of being wrong they will cease creating their own original ideas for fear of being mistaken. In this way while AWTY creates logical, and effeicient students, though I believe that it does so at the cost of the imaginativeness and unique creativity of its students

A place that encourages learning and good character development. The full IB diploma is done at many schools, however what sets Awty apart is the people who teach there. All the faculty and staff are passionate and effectively teach the students the necessary skills to succeed in college, and in life. An amazing place to learn, grow, and have fun!
We absolutely love Awty! Both our children have thrived in this culturally diverse environment. Academically the school is very strong and my children have benefitted from the strong language program which I believe sets this school apart. It is a unique school and we feel very lucky to be part of this community.
