    "I went there since kindergarten and it use to be a good school. The next thing you know, it turns out awful. The school use to be in Northeast Philadelphia in a church. The teachers actually cared, they truly did. Suddenly, when I was about to go outside, I see orange tape on the outside of the grass. A bunch of months sooner, our sister school called Wing Site in West Philadelphia get burned down. This was on fox news. We ended up having to become one school in West Philadelphia. I ended up hating that school, the students: mean, the teachers: bad (only one was good), the ceo and principal: they don't care, the environment: awful. They lie to you about the things they will add to make the school better. One time, I saw one of the faculty members at the mall and I said hi. I already left the school and they don't even remember me. I was always loved by the principal and now they forget about me forever. I called the school to just visit my old classmates cause I thought they changed and I wanted to see them, but they said I would be disturbing them. (Btw they turned my friends into bad inappropriate friends). In conclusion, NEVER GO THERE!!!"

    "My school is a great school. They care for us and want us to succeed at all level. The Collegiate Academy teachers are doing a great job of preparing me and fellow scholars for High School and the Future ahead of us. The school is also embracing diversity by allowing the 7th and 8th graders to learn the language Chinese which is very exciting. The Global Studies ( History) Class is also preparing us scholars for our big trips to Canada and the Bahamas. This is a great and wonderful school. I have been going to this school since 3rd grade and I am now in the 7th grade. This school has took me under my wing."

    "I must admit that GLA which stands for Global Leadership Academy is the most unprofessional, uncouth and disorganized learning institution to send your child/children to become educated. Such vast amounts of the staff members failed to manifest leadership skills and sound minds themselves. A lot of you prospective parents please note that GLA will bump your child on the waiting list to get theirs on board first. Also, please don't have a disagreement with the administrators there regarding your child, because almost every staff member is involved. When I say they're a bunch of miserable, petty and immature group that's exactly what I mean."

    "My daughter started GLA in Kindergarten and is now going into the 4th grade. I can say that the only reason she has been there thus far is because of the academics. Now that I have the pleasantries out of the way, heres what I really think of this school. The administration at this school are the most unprofessional people I have ever came across in my life. The teachers are wonderful, and I have no complaints about them, however the Principal, Vice Principal, office staff, and Dean of Students are the worst! These people are in serious need of proper training when it comes to working with parents. They are rude, insensitive, and extremely unorganized. My daughter is Academically Advanced as well, so my opinion is by know means coming from bitterness, on the contrary, my opinion of this school is one of many of the parents they may have not given a rating. I plan on getting my daughter out of this school as soon as I am able because 4 years with no changes is enough for me. I am also fed up with the overly priced uniforms, and this school charges students different fees on a whim. I would not advise any parent to send their child to GLA, save yourselves the headache."

    "My son started at GLA in kindergarten and he is now going into 2nd grade. I love this school and so does my son. All of the staff really love the children. He is academically advanced so the teachers keep him challenged but he still has time to have fun too. The work is challenging, no tolerance for nonsense, safe environment, clean bright& cheery state-of-the-art building, and many classes that aren't offered in public school. This year he had art, gym, Spanish, music, academics plus (for kids who work above grade level), technology, library, global studies, as well as the traditional math, reading/English, etc. this school is simply amazing. They are also very family friendly and more than encourages the parents to be involved. They have plenty of events all year long for families. If you choose this school you won't be disappointed. They will genuinely nurture and care for your child like their very own. I love it!"
