Students have a learning strategies class every day with a special education teacher who can help them with assignments. This 90 minute block also allows for the extra time many of theses students need to complete work.
The Academy is school that is innovative, student-centered, and is majors based. Students choose to come to study one of the nine majors offered, in addition to their academic subjects. The Academy faculty, staff and students are like a family. Students can feel safe while engaging in a rigorous curriculum.
This school is a unique learning environment that inspires student to maxamize their academic potential. The real world applications make learning rigorous and relevant and inspires students to do their best work first time, on time. Students have gone on to do very well in various endavors after and have continued to perform well in an continue high levels of performance in bot 2 year and 4 year institutions. AAST is a great schol for students who want to work hard to achieve life goals that will serve then long after their time at AAST,
i have never been to any other school that has made me feel the way the academy does. I graduated in 2009 but the friends that i made there are still the most important people in my life. I just got dont watching the senior ceremony on DVD and cried harder this time then i did then because i miss the academy and the teachers so much!
Words cannot adequately describe all that the ASST is, and the profound effect this wonderful environment has upon our children. AAST students get a first rate education in a caring environment that allows them to be who they are providing they act responsibly and with respect for others. Administration, faculty and staff treat students (and parents too if they choose) like family. My child has blossomed and moved on to college and will excel because she had the privilege of attending the Academy for Arts, Science and Technology. It does what an educational institution should do and much more.
My son has loved attending the AAST & has grown academically in leaps and bounds. He has always had an idea of his future education and has been able to hone all of skills toward his goal. He is in the Pre-Engineering classes since being a Junior, now that he is a Senior he is still working towards Engineering and has his future well in hand. We have been so pleased at all he has done and how well the school has been able to assist with all of the Teachers.
I love the concept behind this school, to help our children ready themselves for their chosen career. The staff is so nice and willing to go the extra mile. Thank you all so much
I love how i get to spend so much time in my major doing what i love. the teachers are a lot more hands on and helping. And our building, it's amazing.
My school is the best because it's preparing me for the career, can your high school do that? Also it isn't a school, it's home, a haven, an escape from your outside life. This school does more than teach. It builds a strong foundation to built upon for life, to not only benefit me, but my future children, and their children, and so on.
I love my school because it is a great opportunity to get experience in a field that you are interested in entering.
I love this school because its like a fresh start. So many new people that I have met, its so exiting.
The talent that comes from AAST in Myrtle Beach is amazing. It's an awesome opportunity for students to explore their talents before college. The staff is doing a great job at encouraging all that raw talent. I'm so proud to be apart of such an awesome process.
Everyone is nice, its super awesome. Everyone has a unique and cool personality. The school is always kept clean, and always nice. Not to mention the school has a great reputation
Its awesome. This school resembles excellence in Horry County. The students are awesome. Its awesome!
An amazing place full of bright students where they have all sorts of technology available to them not brought in by any other school for them to fulfill their goals and dreams.
Best school I have ever had the privilege of teaching in. The students are amazing!
I love AAST so much, it's given me a home away from home.I learn things about my preferred major (art) every day. My Art teacher, Mr. Spivey has to be the best teacher I've had thus far. He's inspired me to push the envelope, but not only in my art. He has me trying even harder than ever before to get good grades in my academics.
Going to AAST was the best decision of my highschool career. The teachers are amazing, and the majors are fantastic. It has given me, and many others, a sense of belonging. The things they are teaching us will stay with us for the rest of our lives. As will the friends I've made there.
