This APS tuition free high school prepares students for professional careers in the digital arts.
Digital Arts and Technology Academy is what a charter school should be. I worked for DATA for two and a half years, and it was a highly rewarding experience. The Principal and Assistant Principal (who has since been made principal at another school in NM) were amazingly supportive of staff, students, and parents. The students are fantastic. In a city plagued by apathy, ennui, and violence in schools, DATA is a bright beacon of education for those who can't afford private education. The teachers at DATA are rare finds. This young, energetic teaching staff is able to make learning cool for the students, who come from all over the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho area. Had I remained in New Mexico, I would gladly have continued teaching there. I don't expect I'll ever find a school with as much positive energy and big-family feel as DATA.
