    "I do like this place. However, the open environment and various policies make it a difficult place to really be productive. My biggest complaint would be the lack of prioritization. There's a lot of time sinks in the form of extraneous project goals and processes that are more for appearance than learning. One example would be videos, which are a pretty common assignment (several per school year). It's only one assignment, but it starts with a long-winded seminar on the requirements, maybe forty minutes per week to "work" on it due to other classes, and then a long checklist to work on instead of the video. That checklist might include a storyboard, script, essay, animation or live action production (which come with their own checklists), and then getting told to redo it because it doesn't meet the teacher's standards "even after having so much time".

    "Admin is absolute garbage. Every decision they make is a horrid snap reaction to a prior decision, creating a cycle of continuous incompetence. Beyond that, the lack of honors or AP classes is huge downside. The one redeeming factor is the ease of access to STEM clubs, though admin does their best to butcher them."

    "This is a great school if you're interested into the field of engineering and business. Project Based learning gives you something that other school do not give you. Very interactive and the people around you always support you and are there for you!"

    "Attended a PBL (Project Based Learning) 9-12 academy in Plano ISD. A truly unique learning experiences, with most teachers (facilitators) heavily invested in the student's (learner's) learning experience. Classes done all on a 4.0 scale, so there is a chance that middle school honors classes could be weighted higher. This means that making all A's throughout high school means you could still technically not be ranked top 7% (for UT) if other learners come in with higher gpa's from middle school honors classes. School doesn't rank, so that learners don't compete with each other. This just caused more tension in my opinion, and learners trying to beat the system. Grades are given almost purely at teachers discretion, and are only really counted and given at each semester's end for transcription purposes. For the most part, this was done well, but there are cases where some people really got screwed."

    "This school is absolutely amazing. This school gives learners the opportunity to learn academics while learning real life skills. The Plano ISD Academy High School is a Project-Based Learning and STEAM school. This means you are constantly learning through group projects. You learn content, also how to work with groups. This is a valuable skill that every teenager deserves. Additionally, this school has many clubs. No matter what you're interested in there is a club for you. The Academy really strives to support clubs and gives club time during school hours."
