Grey polo shirts with the schools logo which can be bought at the school and black pants but no tights or sweats. The gym uniform Could be just the black tee with the schools logo or you could wear sweatpants, shorts, yoga pants etc as well and you change during school

Academy has been the powerhouse in producing so many prominent figures in the medical field. And they provide the best courses like dental assistance and health assistance. This is the best institute one can get into, if interested in the field. mt-bc

I am a student at this school moving on to 10th grade and i must say it is a great school if you are seriously intrested in the programs we have and we are planning on building a clinic across the street to provide jobs as well as more programs/hands on training for the students which will hopefully be finished sometime in 2016. The staff really take time to know their students and they care about what you have to say. We have a program called 12 Plus who help you before, during, and after school with whatever you need whether its school work, personal issues, or social problems.  Though we don't have many extra-curricular activities. We do have two programs that pay your for attending. One provides $50 a month the other gives you $100 at the end of the school year. We also have lots of sports teams that are pretty good. They may tell you that we are a drama free zone but come on, as students we should know not everything will be peachey. After all, look at the area we live in. I wouldn't say there is bullying because there really isn't but it all depends on who you hang out with. We dont really fight here but every once in a while there may be. Dont let that upset you though. If you should get upset about something it should be the fact that most of our teachers suck. Our school is small so most of the time teachers switch & share classes. For most of the time at our school you will have 90 minute classes (Block schedules.) If you're unlucky you might get stuck with the bad ninth grade teachers which include teachers that have english as their second language. The teachers do eventually get better in the older grades and you will form great bonds with them. We don't really use lockers and they are very small anyways. We were promised them but never got them. Our bathrooms are pretty decent and are getting improved which is wonderful. Our principal really cares about hygeine. Our nurse goes from school to school so we only have her for about three days a week. And Don't Get On The Bad Side Of Our School Officer! We only have about one during the school day but he isn't afraid to slam a student (figuratively speaking of course.) That's all I can think of right now. I'd rate this school a 7 out of 10 for overall expierience. As for our programs, 10 out of 10!
