    Academics: The AICE program is an excellent asset to the school's education. I feel challenged and occasionally stressed however I am able to manage it most of the time. The opportunities that the AICE program provides and prepares me for are unmatched by any program in the area and I would recommend it to anyone willing to go the extra mile academically and push themselves futher.

    Academics: My school provides a lot of different courses that students can take in their education. There is regular classes, advanced/ honors classes, duel enrollment, and a new college program called the Cambridge program. Because this specific program is new there are a few kinks the school is working out but I feel like it caters to my needs as a student.
