Frequently Asked Questions

Q:Can students take as many AP courses as they would like? 

A: YES!! We encourage students to take college-prep courses that will prepare them for their future.


Q:Can students play sports or NJROTC? 

YES!! Many students in ATM are active in many of our sports or NJROTC.


Q:Do I have to know how to code? 

A:No!! We are here to learn about technology and move forward. You just need to have an interest in technology and communication. 


Q:What if I don't have access to technology at home? 

A:That's A-OK, there are many points of access for technology on our campus. 


Q: What's the difference between ATM and Engineering Pathways ?

A: The ATM Pathway is specifically the Information Communication Technology, ICT, industry sector. ATM is on the cutting edge of Informatics.  Technology is the umbrella theme of study, connecting everything together and promoting the field of Informatics.  ATM's focus is on on Computer Science and STEAM - so technology classes are a must.

INFORMATICS- What is it?

Informatics is the science you've never heard of, but it is the driving force behind how much of the world works.


Informatics makes sense of the data, information, and technology that surrounds us on a daily basis.


Informatics studies the representation, processing, and communication of information in natural and engineered systems.


Informatics is the science of information and the engineering of information systems working hand-in-hand


Informatics is developing its own fundamental concepts of communication, knowledge, data, interaction and information, and relating them to such phenomena as computation, thought, and language.


Informatics has many aspects, and encompasses a number of existing academic disciplines - Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science and Computer Science. Each takes part of Informatics as its natural domain: in broad terms, Cognitive Science concerns the study of natural systems; Computer Science concerns the analysis of computation, and design of computing systems; Artificial Intelligence plays a connecting role, designing systems which emulate those found in nature.


Informatics also informs and is informed by other disciplines, such as Mathematics, Electronics, Biology, Linguistics and Psychology.


Informatics provides a link between disciplines with their own methodologies and perspectives, bringing together a common scientific paradigm, common engineering methods and a pervasive stimulus from technological development and practical application.
