I graduated from Aviation HS in 1965, the school provided an excellent platform for a career in the aviation field. I never took full advantage of this wonderful opportunity, but after graduation I enlisted in the Air Force, and served as a B-52 crew chief during the height of the Vietnam war. After 4 years I returned to civilian life bounced around for awhile in numerous jobs in the technical area. I landed a job in the television broadcast field, as an engineer where I had a very successful 31 year career. I didn't end up in the field of aviation, but the technical background I received at Aviation HS gave me a great platform for all I did later.
I am currently a senior in Aviation High. I just want to say that here If where things can really take off for your aviation career no matter what you are going into.The licences the school gives when you pass their demanding courses and exams can put you ahead of others coming out of a regular high school. When you come here you must realize he opportunity you have been given over most other high schools in NYC or even the united states. I will be going for my Power plant license and I just want to say THANK YOU AVIATION FOR EVERYTHING : )
Excellent teachers, excellent communication with the parents and alumni, I'm very grateful with Aviation Career and Technical High School
I am a Junior in this school. Wow gotta say this school is awsome. It keeps me so interested because i want to pursue a career in aerospace engineering. hands down by far the best school in the nation. you will graduate from this school and start making more money than anyone among you. that's if you complete the rigorous course of course. you get two licenses Airframe and Powerplant. You will graduate with Airframe as a senior. Powerplant is optional. you have to go to fifth year to get your Powerplant license. Plus this school offers an internship which is only reserved for the top 24 graduates!
I am just a sophomore in the school, if all goes well I should graduate in 2013. This school is great because of its Aviation based technical education. We do hands-on work. Like I said, I am sophomore so I don't too much about the school but if you are dedicated it will turn out great for you. Our schedules are longer than normal high because of the shop(AMT courses), so don't expect to go home early specially when you are a sophomore and junior. Seniors and freshmen have better schedule mostly 8 periods each day accept for lab days. We have a lot of clubs and activities. The most known extra program in our school is the AFJROTC, as well as Color Guard. So basically if you want to pursue an Aviation career and have no problems with a longer schedule this is the perfect school.
Great School, but only if if you have any interest in pursuing a career in Aviation/ Engineering. If not, I advise you NOT to attend this school. Trust me, i am experiencing this right now . From an unbiased point of view, the school has done its part in letting students experience hands-on work and gives you a small feel of what life as an AMT would be. Take full advantage of it while you're here, for you can end up with your Airframe/ Powerplant license worth a lot of money. As for academics, they need improvement. This school is so busy with their shop section (which usually lacks adequate tools because of budget) they tend to forget about the academics section, and their needs with books, etc. Teachers vary. Some are excellent and some I question how they were hired. Students are friendly for the most part and diverse.
the mixture of cultures,and the willingness of the teachers and student to learn and share their knowledge.
It is the best school ever!!! The teachers are great and so is the environment.
The only school where you can graduate with more than a diploma, this school lets you graduate with Airframe and Powerplant Licenses, in this economy this is great.
Exellent for their discipline and perfect mode to show t the students how they can be better student and persons on the world
This is a pretty good school if u like workin and doing technical stuff. If you hate staying longer tha regular school this is not the school for you. Althought its does great on the technical term i think it can improve more in the academic section as well.
This school is once of the best and will stay the best due to the licenses and I am a fifth year. What school has a annex and a wide varsity of aircraft? lets leave it at that. Kids come here thinking this H.S. is a joke well you got something coming for you because you have long days and long hours and this HS will prepare you better for college and that's the ultimate goal.
I am attending thisschool ad i love this school i also like the teachers they are all nice.
I attended aviation high school for 5 years, recieved one license and i am upon recieving my second license. After attending a Suny college for a year, i never realized how grateful i was for attending such a good school. The teachers not only taught me how to fixed aircrafts, but prepared me for the real world. Teachers like (RIP) Mr. Petr, and Mr. Podpora they taught us lessons that no education can nver provide. I was luck, and i am grateful
i have been studying for 4 years and i have had a unique experience. it is a school that challenges you to your best working both cooperatively and alone like a professional. there is great communication between teachers and students providing a great study environment.
My son is currently at Aviation. I graduated in 1991 and I still think the school is great. It was a great stepping stone in my life. It opened many doors for me. I worked as an Aviation Technician for many years....Now I'm a union electrician. Aviation taught me so much...becoming an electrician became easy. The teachers are still as great as when I went there. They treat the students like their children. Thank God for that.
This school is quite challenging for students and is a great place to send your son/daughter. THe teachers are caring about the students and the vocational classes are very strong. There is a shortage of college information provided for those who do not plan to enter into the industry, but many of the academic teachers are willing to work with the students on that.
Quality of academic education is very high. Needs to become more involved in other sports than currently available. More parent involvement need - since a large quantity of the students attending are either from a different country or their parents are.
Greatest academic program ever ,ned a bit more sports,and a lot of parent involvement.
From the moment my son entered this school in 2001 he has achieved 100% attendance. The only time he was out was when he was representing his school or while on a school trip. Aviation has held my son's interest from the beginning therefore, he looks forward to the challenges that this school offers on a daily basis. My son's envolvement and dedication to this school is because of the caring teachers and a principal who cares about each and every student. I am very proud of his choice to attend Aviation and of all his accomplishments that he had received thus far.
