New cyber-technology school in Huntsville offers students out-of-class experience

The alabama school of cyber technology and engineering opened this year in huntsville.

It's the only high school in the nation for students seeking advanced studies in those fields.

Enrollment is open to students throughout alabama.

Waay 31's bridget divers explains this special opportunity for students.

Matt masey/ president of the alabama school of cyber technology and engineering "first year of school, for the school to exist.

We really felt it was important to have our students here and felt like it would be really tough to kind of blend that in if some were virtual so we were all in- person learning."

Matt masey is the president of the alabama school of cyber technology and enginneering.

And he says students and staff worked hard to learn in person this year.

Matt masey "it's great to get and see kids in classrooms learning.

We've taken our precautions, we wear our masks and we distance and we eat lunch in the classrooms."

Students are excited to have classes in cyber technology and engineering -- options not all of them had at their prior schools.

Buddy watson/ freshman student at ascte "i came from a private school and it was getting to the point where there weren't as many engineering opportunities as i wanted to."

Valencia yobo-dasse/ student at ascte "i've always been interested in cyber things so and this school majored in cyber and engineering so it was a really good opportunity."

And the thirty students who live on campus are also learning important life skills at the school.

Valencia yobo-dasse "it's been a really good experience so far.

I'm learning to live with other people and learning how to communicate more and just getting that experience around other people is really nice to have."

And getting to learn in person in the classroom has been helpful for students during the coronavirus pandemic.

Valencia yobo-dasse "actually going to school and taking extra precautions to go to school has really helped me."
