I was a student at the Academy of American studies until sophomore year.The school spirit is strong and also the school has so many events through the year. There are indeed some students which are trouble makers but all schools has its flaws. But mostly all of the students there are great. You can have more freedom to go around during study hall and grab a meal at the near grocery. The basketball team is great also the coach is a really nice person u will enjoy it
teachers are tough graders and bullying goes around a lot especially if your black . School is interested in sports having a lot of sports teams.There are a few trouble makers in the school and gossip gets around fast since theres not as many students.
It's a small school where everyone knows each other . Most of the teacher are really great such as Ms Jaffe, she's not a teacher only. The way she teaches you is just inspiring, she teaches about the meaning of life, the world, people. Mrs Greenspam she makes boring biology as interesting as a fiction book. Ms Toro, she is not only a teacher but she is your friend.It's really a great school.
If I could give a 0 star rating, I would. This school has very unprofessional staff, almost no choices in elective classes, poor facilities, and is extremely overcrowded. They brag a good reputation for American history while neglecting science and math classes with very poor staff in those areas, no science labs, even some humanities teachers are not good. If you have an issue with a teacher mistreating you here- good luck. Because there is nobody to complain to either. Staff acts like this school is all that when it is not, going here robs a student of a high school experience and does NOT prepare them for college. Facilities are a nightmare and a fire hazard, classes are held in extremely cramped classrooms and during passing, hallways are a nightmare. This school brags maybe three teachers who actually know what they are doing and are qualified while the rest are rude, unprofessional, and inexperienced. There is a lot of favoritism that occurs in this school from multiple staff members amongst other unfair things. DO NOT go here, you will regret it! This school gets away with countless violations somehow, and it is at the expense of students. I am glad to have graduated.
Language learners with a passion for learning languages and American History
Omg Academy is awesome the teachers are amazing and helpful, the trips are informative and fun and you really get an in depth view into history!
Its an amazing school... amazing leadership, we all stick together! Teachers are our bestfriends. They dont give up on us. I love Academy of American Studies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Academy has a small close school environment. Its like attending a surbanian high school in the city!
this school is the best experiance ever. i learn so many things everyday about myself and others. the enviroment is great. everything about the school is a good influence on the students.
Cause of all the teachers faculty the students and the great learning environment
It's a very small but intimate school. All the teachers are kind and show concern about each and every student. I only have great things to say about my school. They would never turn away a student that needs help. Academy's teachers are like no other. They make learning fun and exciting. I love Academy of American Studies!!
There are no word to express the dedication and professionalism and enthusiasm of everyone at the Academy of American Studies, from the staff/administrators and students. All who visit the school are welcomed with open arms. My son, this might sound a little strange, can wait for the summer to be over so that he can go back to the Academy of American Studies, where he has made wonderful new friends in every grade in the school.
The teachers are great and the environment is better then anyone could ask for
I love everything about Academy of American Studies. I call it Cheers, everyone knows you name. It is a wonderful learning and social environment for its students. It is superior academically and the administration and staff care so about their students that it warms my heart.
The school allows me to know what is going on. It is very easy for me to contact school officials. It is a great school
the size of the school, the dedication of the teachers and the academic advantages each student receives makes you hunger for more learning
because it has a variety of programs from a debate team to theatre, to writing clubs, to environmental clubs
our school really dives into things that are needed for college. let it be preps for sat,or even to little things as to how you should write a well organized essay in college. i also really love how our school is so small that the teachers know the students and vice versa which, in my opinion is really great.
