    "The previous review fails to understand and realize that the physical size and facilities of the school are not controlled by the school but by the MDCPS District Offices. The school is a single-sex magnet leadership progrqam with top academics, great teachers, superb administration and a very devoted group of parents. Yes, the school requires a difficult and rigorous curriculum with almost all AP and honors classes. The proof of the excellence is in the performance of the students, the school's ranking by a number of different groups (USNWR 25th in Nation 5th in Florida) 9th most rigorous by Washington Post) and the admittance rate to top colleges(Dartmouth, Cornell, Amherst, Smith College, Hamilton College, Mount Holyoke) (2 Posse Scholarship Selections , 1 Gates Millenium Selection) and many students receiving very substanial scholarship and financial aid awards. The school after 7 years is well known nationally and top colleges send representitves there to seek out applicants. This is all done with an almost 85% minority student population, with more than 60% on free and/or reduced lunch program. The administration, teachers and parents true care about the school."

    "The reality as follows: it is a small school environment ,with clean floors and an excellent security guard.Academics are far from ideal. If your child is lucky these teachers will enhance her education.The interaction with bad teachers and a test oriented curriculum would turn any nice day into a nightmare. This school has a maximum capacity of 400 students.Is not the school rigor but the incompetence that makes parents run for the hills in middle school an later in high school. The graduation class is 25 students more or less,every year for the past 6 years,the school lacks a yard or a school auditorium. They are offering currently an array of AP courses which are attractive in a college application.The comparassion with similar schools who offer an equivalent curriculum... still this school falls short. On the positive note kids are offered laptops for use during the school year. Overall there are many options out there.With a better school facility and hiring better personnel this school could be a gem."

    "This is a FANTASTIC YWPA family. The quality of care, teaching, rapport, communication, staff and leadership that this school provides is excellent. First, the interest in the school. Second, what it takes to get in. These parents care. The more we can get of parent participation, which is where it begins, then we all benefit. My daughter benefits from the challenging curriculum, great activities, some from the PTSA and great role models. We are very proud. We plan to step up and help the new students and parents by being their role models. We know as parents that our daughter has a greater opportunities in her future at YWPA. This environment creates future leaders that we can be proud of based on the quality of great leadership at YWPA."

    "I can think of no better place to teach. This is a fantastic community of professionals who are genuinely interested in and are aware of every one of the 412 students in the building. I cannont wait until my daughter is old enough to attend YWPA."
