It's interesting to be part of a school that is within another school. My engineering classes are with the academy but the rest of my classes are part of the bigger school, Waukesha South. It was a little frustrating trying to make my schedule due to graduation requirements, but otherwise it has been a wonderful experience.

The lack of energy throughout the school day among the administration and staff needs to improve. There is only staff and students, little teaching going on just steps to get through the day and process. Seems to always focus on the ones who cannot instead of the ones who can and do. The teachers are friendly and sometimes too lax.
The engineering academy is a great option for those looking to go into an engineering field. It gives you a little taste of different types of engineering majors throughout the 4 years of high school. The teachers work well with students one on one and really have the students best interest in mind.
