    "I've been at Thea Bowma since I was in the second grade. I've seen all the administration changes and I also seen how it effected the academics. Grades began to decline and we didn't have any consistent teachers. There was only one teacher that has been there through it all from the beginning is one of the high school Spanish teachers. I believe that Thea Bowman can do extremely better academically. There are some thing's that we haven't learned and when we go to take standardized test, we kind of looked dumbfounded on what we seen.The school doesn't like to cope with the different learning styles of the children. There are some teachers who teach from a PowerPoint and never hands out books. Even if they are sitting on the book shelf collecting dust. Then when the students grab a book, we can't take it out the classroom. What's the purpose of having a book?Thea Bowman needs a new administration that will get the job done."

    "My experience at Thea Bowman Leadership Academy has been good throughout my six years of attending the school. The teachers, staff, and administration are very helpful at making every student feels welcomed. They do a great job at making sure everything is about the student, and that everything for students is at full potential. Things I would like to see improve is the overall atmosphere of the school, as well as being up to date and open to new things. Very often the student body is denied of doing fun, but also beneficial programs and activities. There is a huge feeling of blandness when attending this school within everyone. As a result, this leads to students feeling unsure of their future. Overall, this school offers a very typical but traditional experience."

    "My experience in this highschool has just been kind of confusing and hard. Highschool is ner how you would expeect it to be, at least for me. I never got to participate in the activites i wanted to because my mother, wouldnt give me the funds. Getting the preffered grades was always a struggle because math is my weakness. This year im trying my hardest to make it to the top and say good ridness."

    "the academics are pretty good. We do follow the Core-40 requirements first then after you have met the requirements you can fill in your schedule with classes that are electives or you need to get your community service out the way. there is must you can do if you have met all requirements for Core-40, but the actual scheduling process can be hectic at the beginning and middle of the year when you are allowed to change schedules."
