    "I currently attend this school and am in the seventh grade, i recieved a perfect reading FCAT score and a high 5 on the math. I think this school is a great middle school but am not planning on attending highschool. If you want the right information take it from me, i have attended the school for two years and one of my best friends has attended it for three and is in the eight grade. I think it is a good middle school and has a very great academic program."

    "As to the post of June 29th, again this is the same individual that cannot address the facts and objective measurements that reflect the excellence of YWPA. YWPA is a leadership-magnet school with an advanced curriculum. As noted on the YWPA website the school has been rated as the 9th most rigorous high school in the United States by the Washington Post. The school does teach, foster and promote its leadership program with a lot more breadth, scope and purpose than simply the 7 Habits program. It is part of each teacher's obligation at YWPA to instill leadership concepts and instruction into the curriculum. Again the facts speak for themselves. One Gates Millenium Leadership Scholarship, Two POSSE Leadership Scholarships and multiple other awards and recognition for leadership. Some people only want to teardown, often in an effort to mask other issues. Take it from a parent that has spent 8 years involved with the school both as a parent of a student, and as an ESSAC representitive. I know the facts and have the information to support my contentions. As I previously reminded the poster, you are entitled to your own opinion but not your own set of facts."

    "The leadership program does not exist as a formal program in this school is just a label, the program is based on an outdated self help book which the school isn't even authorized to implement due to the fact they lack a license to implement it. This blog is designed to help parents voice their opinion about problems within the school that need fixing in hopes they would be corrected.To parents: when choosing a new school the rule of thumb is "buyers beware" don't get caught in the "statistics mumbo jumbo"..."

    "YWPA is wonderful. As in all schools there is sometimes a rotten apple. In this case its a parent. We are all glad to bid them goodbye. Off they go to harass their next school. Makes you wonder why they stayed for 3 years. I have been a teacher here since day 1. It is an awesome school with great students and staff who strive for and reach excellence regularly. IF you were so displeased with a place ,would you stay for 3 years? I certainly wish them the same they wished all of us I am glad to begin a new school year at YWPA with a new class of eager,bright children."

    "To be honest, this school has been such a traumatizing experience for both me and my child. When I first took a tour of this school, they informed me that the school was an academically rigorous academy with individualized teaching and plenty of room for my child to learn and grow and it pains me to say that not only was I bamboozled, but so were all of the parents who sent their children here expecting a decent education. The majority of the teachers lack the skills and abilities to teach the students and simply just feed them enough information to pass the class, the teachers treat the students as their own children which has become an increasingly disturbing problem, and the students that they accept into the school lack the academic motivation to succeed. Overall, one of the worst school experiences, me and my child have had to endure."
