I have shadowed the school, attended the parent/student information night, and had a private tour of the school, and I cannot wait to attend in the fall of 2017! The students were friendly, as were the teachers, and there seemed to a higher passion for learning, diversity rate, and overall great atmosphere to the school. So excited for summer to be over so I can go back to school (certainly a phrase I've never said before!)

This school is amazing! There are many many opportunities to further your education and experiences in life. We are very STEM and aviation focused. The staff and faculty is amazing. The aviation department is very professional and teaches us respect and gets us ready for the future in whatever career we choose. The staff work their butts off to make sure we succeed and we can go to them for anything school related. This school offers many clubs such as RC flying, drama, robotics, and music clubs. We are a newer school so there are many opportunities to start many new clubs. This year alone we started close to 5 new clubs.
West Michigan Aviation Academy was the best decision I made for myself. The school just saw its 4th graduating class, so its new and making improvements everyday. The staff and students are amazing, the environment is very mature and well put together. Plus, who doesnt love the benefits of flying planes and being in such a unique high school environment. I've never felt so accepted and loved in a school until WMAA, the way each teacher created a relationship with their students and how well they prepared us for our future is something you dont see in a lot of largr scale schools and I am proud to have been part of the 2nd graduating class in 2015.
