I recently judged the Congressional STEM Competition at ACIT and I was extremely impressed with the innovation and presentation techniques of the senior students.


Posted August 14, 2009

I graduated from ACIT in '05 and believe it was the best choice I had ever made. The teachers are awesome and definitely care about their students. Attending ACIT allowed me to work to the best of my academic potential. ACIT will give your child an edge when applying for college. I got into every single college I applied to and I am now finishing up my undergraduate degree at a local Philadelphia university and will pursue a master's. Not only do you learn things that you would normally learn at a regular high school, but you will acquire professional skills in your field that you will be able to use after graduation. Send your kids here!

This school is dedicated to the success of its students. The teachers care for their students as if there success determines their own future.

I read the reviews of both parents and students and found both to be right. I have a jr and freshman attending ACIT and they both enjoy attending. I am convinced that they are recieving a better education at ACIT than they would have at Buena their base school. In addressing the parent with the concern of extra curricular activies am not sure if you are aware that child is eligble to particpate in after school activities at his/ her base school. I will also have to agree that the information is lacking when it comes to events and trips and that the website should be more established.After all it is a tech school and the websit should refect that. So, I would like to give ACIT five stars, but it lacks giving timely and update information. stars, but it lack in giving timely iformation

The extra curricular activities do not offer enough variety of choices. The principal leadership is lacking. As a parent, I feel that we are not informed enough of school events and days off. The web site is still not updated for 2008, and we are in the month of March, Hello Technology Highschool?

I was a past student of the culinary arts program at A.C.I.T.. Im now enrolled at Johnson and Wales College of Culinary Arts in my second year of my bachlors degree. Over all I give the school 4.5 stars reason being the teachers as a whole are amazing. The administration on the other hand could be much better. The schools job shadowing program is great and they try to really help you get your foot in the door in the industry. I would strongly recomend this school to anyone who is serious about really pursuing a career in the culinary arts industry.- Brad S.

This is my daughter's first year at ACIT and so far it has been a wonderful experience. The staff and administration has been 100% with communication and effectiveness. My daughter comes home everyday and says how much she absolutely loves school! This was a wonderful choice for her.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA) to test students in grade 11 in language arts literacy and math. The HSPA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. Students are required to pass the HSPA in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
