    "At the time I was there everything seemed average but the teachers wanted a stronger curriculum for students in the future."

    "I'd started my search of colleges in my junior year with the help of my social worker and senior year I worked with my academic counselor. They'd helped narrow down to two colleges until I picked the one that was more financial secure. I had won a scholarship they had offered there and that made me feel more prepare to cover any difference of the supplies I would need in college. Every High School curriculum has different quality, and at the time I was a student the school was fairly new compare to historical schools that was around for over ten years. After class 2011, I've heard students are surpassing other schools with HSPA tests. When I did get settled with college work I didn't feel prepared but not hopeless, I had to do a lot of self taught and go over what was taught in High School. Now I am a college junior and I'd manage to stay in college. I look forward to graduating."

    "This is where I grew in academics and I received a lot of recognition. The size of this school environment makes it unique because it is easy in space to manage in case of emergencies and student are small in number which makes it easier to reinforce rules and regulations. It's easier to build a personal relationship with a teacher,they know you by name and can work with you one on one. Some even have lunch with you. The school staff are encouraging and very supportive especially when it comes to fundraising. They had after-school tutoring and towards the end my confidence in learning grew. I was no longer below- average by my sophomore year, after graduated I was determine to strive for academic excellence. I would do it all over again."

    "Throughout my four years, I have a great experience. The teachers and staff showed me respect and genuinely cared."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2014-05-01
    "As an inner city school, most people are African American or Latino. This is not a negative thing, but it does detract from being able to absorb experiences from other cultures, such as Asian cultures or some European cultures. Despite this, one would still be able to find a group of people they could be content with. One will not often get peer pressured directly to conform here, whether it is about drugs, partying, or just social scenes. The level of acceptance at this school is currently at the minimum. There is one transgender individual at my school, and I find that people often slander that person. This school is not yet ready to be completely accepting of different types of sexual orientations and people in general, typically for males(females can be openly gay without repercussion), but our LGBTQ club, which I am proud to be a part of, is trying to spread more awareness to efface stereotypes and prejudice that may exist among our students."
