My teachers care about their students, they go out of their way to find to help students struggling. If anyone needed help with homework or could not finish certain assignments due to personal reasons, teachers at this school are understanding and figure out how to make up their work. They also always try to encourage everyone to get involved with clubs and community service. If anyone wanted to help spread the word about charity work, teachers are their to announce it. Our teachers are close and always try to find ways to help improve the school, teaching styles, and activities.

My school offers a variety of clubs and we are even encouraged to create even more. We have student council, FFA, Christian fellowship, student ambassadors, robotics club, drama, hiking, and many more. I would say FFA and Student council are the more popular clubs on campus. The school offers a Leadership class to help officers and members of clubs improve through leadership exercises, projects, and helping each other out.

AAEC Red Mountain's facilities are very small to say the least, as the singular fenced in location gives it an almost "jail-like" feel. The building itself isn't bad, but nor is it state-of-the-art, as most of the scholarship money goes to paying for the students there to go to college. Technological resources on campus are limited, but not absolutely horrible, as the students have access to MCC Red Mountain's resources as well. The parents at AAEC Red Mountain are also very active, as they are generally responsible for providing snacks and what-not when it comes time for large tests.
