    "I loved going to Philadelphia Academy. It was a small environment, but it almost felt like a second home. Everyone knew one another and you could always feel safe walking down the halls. The only thing that I wish could have been different about the school is more school spirit. Since our school was so small, we did not have the ability to have a football team so we didn't have the typical Friday night football games like most high schools. Most people didn't look at our school with any type of school spirit honestly, but being the captain of the cheerleading team since my sophomore year, I tried my best to try and bring school spirit to the hall of Philadelphia Academy."

    "I always took the most challenging classes that were presented to me. I took every AP class that was available at Philadelphia Academy Charter. The only problem with that was that there were only 4 AP classes that were possible to take. When it came to electives, I always wanted to take the academic related electives to be able to better myself for college, although there were a few classes that I did take that were not as academic, but it helped me be a more full rounded student. Such as my Peer Mediation class, a class that helped you becoming a peer mediator and learn different and better ways to help solve problems in your daily life, or help a dispute between two other people, which lead me to be a peer mentor my senior year to the new freshman so that they had a recognizable face when they started their new journey to high school."

    "The teachers at Philadelphia Academy Charter were always very helpful. They looked out for their students and always tried their hardest to keep the students studious by making their teaching styles the best that they could. Some people believe that the school is not as good as it should be and that the teachers might not care, but I believe that if the student doesn't care about their education, then they won't care if the teacher does, even if the teacher does. I have never seen a teacher at Philadelphia Academy Charter not care about a student, from my experience most teachers there were like a second family."

    "The teachers always want to help and make sure that everyone is on the same page. Because we are a smaller school all the teachers know everyone and get involved with each and every student. There is something for everyone to do and the staff makes sure that students get involved."

    "I was shy and did not want to go to a large high school, I was lucky to be chosen to attend Philadelphia Academy Charter High School. I feel like that I have grown into someone that is no longer shy. I have met many people from different areas and cultures and have become friends with many people. I thank all the teachers who have shown an interest in me and have help me to discover the talents that I just didn't know that I had."
