My son loves this school. I love the "freedom with responsibility" philosophy and am hopeful that it pays off when he goes to college!
The philosophy of the school is Freedom with responsibility. The students are learning the meaning of taking responsibility for the homework, their grades, their relationships, their time management. They are rewarded for their success. Administration focuses on the 95% of the students that do well as opposed to the 5% that may not. The campus does not have fences to keep the kids in; they truly want to be there!
This is an absolutely amazing school! From staff to teachers to students this is a true community. I feel extremely lucky that my child is able to attend Andrada!
Andrada is the best high school in Arizona! It is not only an A rated school, but more importantly it is a big family.
Students at this school choose a Career Track that they study along with the core classes much like a major in college. I have 2 students in the school and both have buy-in that I have not seen at other schools. Both are in different Career Tracks and both are excited and motivated by the things that they are learning. Perhaps, best of all, both will have a skill when they graduate that they can either go to work in or use as leverage for getting into the colleges of their choice. Some of the faculty I am not thrilled about but most are good to excellent, and the staff is very nice and responsive to the needs of parents.
Andrada Polytechnic High School has been such a wonderful addition to the Vail Arizona community. We chose this school to enroll our daughter in because of the great advancements it has to offer in real life employment options after High School. We have been very impressed with the strides Andrada has made in its short time being in Vail, to include such a positive impact on the community as a whole. The teachers and staff are very helpful and involved and always go the extra mile to help in every situation which arises. We have hugely appreciated the Principals active involvement and constant communication regarding everything going on at the High School and community. She is a person to greatly look up to and other leaders should model themselves after. We are pleased that our daughter was accepted into this school and will continue to supports all Andrada's efforts to better the children and their academic success. We are very thankful we have the opportunity to be partnered with such a great school!
APHS has provided an innovative opportunity to advance education at the HS level, by providing real work opportunities for these kids. The curriculum allows students to gain certifications in various areas of training. Legal,medical and even automotive certification training provides these kids an opportunity to participate in real world work. Thanks Andrada!
ANDRADA HIGH SCHOOL IS AN OUTSTANDING SCHOOL. THEIR STUDENTS ARE GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPLORE CAREER FIELDS THROUGH COURSES OFFERED. THIS OPPORTUNITY WILL ALLOW THEM TO GET A GOOD JOB RIGHT OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL IN THEIR FIELD OF STUDY, AS THEY CONTINUE ON IN COLLEGE WORKING TOWARDS THEIR DEGREE IN THIS FIELD. MY DAUGHTER LOVES SCHOOL, IS VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE CAREER FIELD SHE HAS CHOSEN AND IS GETTING A HEADSTART ON HER FUTURE CAREER BEFORE SHE LEAVES HIGHS SCHOOL!! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANDRADA HIGH SCHOOL IN TUCSON ARIZONA!!!!!
Andrada is a special place. It is not your "normal" high school it inspires new and exciting things. It provides a safe environment that gives students freedom while learning responsibility. A++++
My daughter has been attending Andrada for junior and senior years in HS. It has been an amazing place for her to grow! We love the small school atmosphere with the big school education. Keep up the excellent work Andrada.
Andrada is a fantastic school with a great curriculum, a brand new amazing building and the best teachers. The career tracts offer an amazing program that was not offered when I went to High School. My daughter loves the school, her teachers and the ability to choose a career track that she enjoys!
Andrada is a new school in the Tucson area. The staff is beyond stellar. They are very involved with the students. The students them self have pride in the school, they don't deface it which says a lot for teens today. The money would really help this new school in much needed supplies for the kids.
This is a very unique school. From the staff to the academic foundation you will find nothing short of spectacular. I wish they had a school like this when I was in school. They truly care about each and every student on campus. I have never seen such a caring school. I feel all other high schools should be modeled after APHS. APHS has something for every student no matter what they may be interested in. If you ever have the chance to visit you won't be disappointed.
Great brand new school. Campus is gorgeous and modern. Staff is incredibly caring. My daughter has Ms. Link for healthcare classes and is getting prepared for her future healthcare career. AMAZING teacher! Their career pathway classes have definitely helped to mature my daughter & make her think about her future! Love, love, love, this school!
