    "My school is amazing! I am currently in the 7th grade and I have learned so much in the past years. We have basketball, volleyball, tennis, and track.. Our teams play really great- undefeated! There is no bullying at this school and it may seem as if being in a all girls school is no fun- but I have had the most fun in my life for these past years. We show great leadership, our teachers are here 24/7 for us... Before school and after. Sure this school may cause stress, but you will come over it. I LOVE my school. We have a hardworking art, dance, and choir department. We also have ALOT of clubs such as drama club, interior design club, etc. your daughter will be college ready and focused on her academics while having fun! I really recommend your daughter attending here, after all, we are ranked the #1 middle school in Texas!"

    "Ywla well what can I say about it. Well for starters I am currently a sixth grader there and right now I absolutely love this school. The work is a lot but they break it down for you. The teachers there are wonderful. They are polite, nice, and supporting. Especially my principal, I know I've only been there a week now but she provides so much for us. I can personally say that I did not want to come to this school because of my "friends". But now since I've been here I found out that before they were not my friends. The girls there are so nice. Also there is no bullying. So try this school, apply, encourage and support your daughter! :)"

    "As a grandparent I attend the initial organizational meetings and was highly impressed. My granddaughter attended YWLA middle school and it was exceptional. However, when the change in principals occured, the school suffered. The subjects offered at the high school level are very limited. Decisions are now controlled by parents, not the principal or staff; there is a lack of leadership. The purpose of YWLA was to allow a majority of underprivileged girls to know and become interested in continuing onto college. Along with extensive studies they would also be exposed and learn things not available in their home environment. With the parents controlling decisions, this has now failed. For that reason my granddaughter will not be attending high school there."

    "This school is wonderful and ranked #1 in Texas middle school. It is hard but one thing your daughter will be college ready. Teachers are very caring and is welling to help the girls out even after hours. My daughter loves the school and enjoys playing sports for the school. I know when my daughter leaves YWLA she will be college ready and be able to accomplish all her goals that she has set for herself in life......"

    "The Young Women Leadership Academy is one of the best schools here in San Antonio, Texas In fact, the middle school was just recently ranked #1 in Texas. The school focuses on education so that your daughter can be successful in the future. I am going on my fifth year here at YWLA and everything that I have learned and experienced has been outstanding. Additionally, the friendships and the bonds I've made here will be lifelong, because we all have become sisters. While it is true that some naysayers will say that the school is very "hardcore",difficult, and even too rigorous, I disagree - all you really need is time management. The teachers here are amazing and they bond easily with the students. Another thing about this school it is bully-free; there is absolutely no tolerance for that type of behavior. At YWLA, the ultimate goal here is not to graduate from high school, no,it is to graduate from college. I really recommend this school if you are planning on your daughter being successful in the future, because it has been the best choice I've ever made."
