On Teachers: The teachers are great, yet there is not much diversity among the staff. I wish there were more teacher options and that the students could choose which teachers they preferred to have.

On Educational Outcomes: I feel as though I cannot answer this question as a typical post-grad students, as I attended one of the top 20 best business universities in the country, so I had a much more focused and career-intensive education. AC was not great at preparing students for the business world, they were mostly focused on the liberal arts. I did not take a single business class while at AC, as they were hardly available.

On Food: There were not many healthy food options for the students, so many did not like to purchase the hot meal made available. Instead, they would choose among a very limited display of snacks available at the school store.

On Administration & Policies: AC administrators do not put up with much from the students, which I have found to be a rather good disciplinary tool. The dress code was strictly enforced, although I have differing opinions about that, there was not a lot of bullying that went unnoticed by teachers or guidance counselors, attendance was strictly enforced and there were not many controversial policies placed on the students.

On Overall Experience: If AC were not so cliquey, and there was more involvement outside of the classroom, I think that it would be a much more welcoming place to study, especially since those 4 years spent there are some of the most important years in terms of finding yourself and beginning to form into the person you ultimately want to be. The teachers are overall really great and helpful and work hard to ensure success for their students. I would choose this school again because it taught me a great deal about how to deal with varying groups of people and cliques, and it got me to my dream college, but I do wish it were a bit bigger and had better facilities, such as a dance studio, private football stadium, bigger gym, larger cafeteria, etc.
