    "Urban Action Academy is a wonderful high school and I strongly recommend it. The student and staff relationship is great and it feels like one big family. Every school has its up and downs but the goods outweigh the bad. The teachers here are caring, encouraging and down to earth. They genuinely care about there students and are willing to go the extra mile."

    "As the years go by Urban Action changes with classes and teachers. New classes get added to help students with college readiness and help students achieve their credits on time. The goal is to make students graduate in the cohorts they came in. As the year pass more AP classes and after school activities took place all we needed was a couple of voice to be heard to get a after school program and a teacher willling to stay."

    "Just like any schools, my school has its up and downs. The teachers make it their priority to help kids do better in their academic life and they are always there if you need them personally and academically. We have formed relationships that we will always cherish. furthermore, my school is also welcoming to everyone and we are very diverse. However, most of the kids lack ambition and think things are going to be handed to them with no amount of hard work and that is something that sometimes makes learning hard for me. The students aren't respectful and they do not take their education seriously while make would die to be in their place. I hope in the future this is something that we can change because I know them and I know that they can do better we have to break barriers and be there for each other."

    "Amazing a very good useful tool to have. This program alerts me with the new sets of scholarships to apply to. I'm thankful for having this as a tool for college readiness."

    "UAA is a good school. The teachers teach you the stuff you need to know so that you get out fast and with the right credits needed, but the school is not well organized and students fights happen really really often."
