    "Coming to Obama Academy was a very big step for me coming out of PA Cyber Charter School. The thing that I like about my school Barack Obama Academy is the diversity. People are able to interact with everyone from the school and have fun. This is also a great school for college by preparing you when you do go. The teachers are there for you 24/7 whenever you need help, before school and after school hours. Barack Obama Academy is an excellent school for grades 6-12 because the teachers ready you for your next step in life, and they want to see you succeed in your career."

    "The best part about the school is the drama department, however administrators don t support the arts."

    "I have attended Obama since 6th grade. It is by far the best decision I have ever made to go here. The administration has always been amazing, and the amount of activities for students is unsurpassed. Diversity in the school is amazing, and it carries over from grade to grade and can be seen in every level of class (which is not always the case). The student body is enthusiastic and I have had amazing teachers every year. The IB classes that ALL students take are fantastic for college prep and readiness. I have always felt comfortable in the school since day one and the staff is extremely devoted to the students at the school. I never would have expeted to end up here, but I sure am glad I chose it over schools like CAPA, Allderdice, and Sci-Tech."

    "The academics are definitely challenging but I feel confident with handling the college work load. I'd say there needs to be more 1 on 1 time between students and teachers"

    "Obama Academy is a challenging school, that works towards passing the IB tests. They push the students harder to succeed and to be prepared for the future."
