Choosing AAEC for our daughter has proven to be the better choice over the larger public school classroom that is full of distractions caused by disengaged students. This is a small school that has very supportive teachers and staff. After 3 1/2 years of high school, my daughter is graduating a semester early...with an Associates degree. What's even better is that AAEC paid the tuition. And because AAEC has provided plenty of opportunities for leadership, clubs, and volunteering, the remainder of her college education will now be paid for with scholarship money. We chose this school for the academic rigor, but it is also well known for its Horsemanship and Veterinary Science classes taught by professionals. There are great opportunities for students interested in the veterinarian and medical fields. If your student is serious about school and wants to take advantage of free college tuition, then this is the high school for them.
So far our kids love the staff and the ability to not only prepare for college but go to college. The office administration is the most personal and caring we have ever seen in a high school. This is an incredible concept and we hope more schools around the nation use this model.
My daughter spent 3 out of four years of her high school term struggling with AP courses and now she is able to perform vs just test. Experience is always the best practice, which is what AAEC provides our children.
This school is not just for animal lovers.
My daughter just graduated high school at AAEC Red Mtn with an AA degree from Mesa Community College. She is starting pre-med at Barrett, The Honor College at ASU this fall and received a full tuition scholarship.
So why AAEC? Because why wouldn't a parent want 2 FREE years of college (taken at the community college-these aren't just high school classes that count for college credit). Why wouldn't you give your child a head start in life? They are going to sit through 4 years of high school anyway, why not get college too? My son is a Sophomore and also loves it as well. It is a small school and the kids and teachers develop lasting relationships with each other. If you child is even thinking about college in his/her future this school is for you.
I could have never have picked a better school to go to. I never feel out of place. The students are great! The teachers really care about you, and your grades. They will help you whenever you need. I highly recommend this school!
Arizona Agribusiness is an amazing school with amazing students and staff. The teachers will go out of their way to help students and truly care. The principal is fair, honest and makes time for his staff and students. Many opportunities for students willing to work and are serious about college. AAEC is definitely not a school for the lazy, students lacking self-discipline or those that lack motivation. This school provides great opportunities for students wishing to get move ahead with education. I love the fact that my child is surrounded by others that have the same goals of achieving an excellent education. It has been a wonderful first year and we look forward to the next 3 years.
This is a great fit for high performing students who walk to their own drum. The curriculum is demanding and requires students to be diligent. Small setting offers a personable atmosphere. This school is a wonderful model for innovative education. Students take classes both at the high school and adjacent community college. They can receive credit on their college transcript and apply the credit to their high school transcript. The teachers are dedicated and all are strong academic mentors. Teachers offer individual support after school daily. Student leaders are strong mentors and are open, accepting, and bright. The Veterinary Science program is a wonderful background for any medical or science career interest. Couple this with the advanced English, Social Studies, Science, Agriculture, and Math classes and you get a well educated student.
The school bends backward to make sure each student is successful in high school classes and college classes. I came from a advanced school and AAEC immediately made sure each class challenged me to my potential. The teachers are extremely caring and supportive. This school definitely helps every student that comes in to the school.
