    "A lot of favoritism when it comes to students, not very diverse either, 90% of the students are Hispanic/Latino the rest is African American and some Asians. Everyone is always in your business, including if it's outside activities. This school isn't as good as everyone says it."

    "My experience was great I met new people and what I really liked about making waves was that the teachers were a great support and something I would like to see change is the food."

    "My experiences in this school have overall been great. We have an amazing faculty and staff that are all in. There are goals set, and goals met. We have an amazing team of teachers who do the most they can to make sure we understand the material however way it may be phrased. Can't explain how blessed we are overall because of the team's positive and engaging way with their students, as students we enjoy going above and beyond what is expected. Of course like in any other high school their is flaws. And our only flaw as a school is not really showing our school pride like many other schools do."

    "I have been in this school since 5th grade. Everyone in my class have been together since then. The teachers are very supportive and i feel very connected to my community. Something i would change is the dress code. we all wear uniform and it makes us feel less of ourselves."

    "In my opinion, Making Waves Academy does a great job in giving back to the community and in preparing their students for college. I give Making Waves Academy great respect for showing their students what it is like to be a school that has core values and follows through with them. This school is very professional with everything they do and take their job of preparing students for their future's very seriously. If you are falling behind, there are measures taken to mandate you to stay until you get your grades up. As well as that, Making Waves has always rewarded their students for going above and beyond their goals, whether it is a personal or academic goal. I appreciate this school so much for all of the above, and strongly hope to see incoming students feel the same. The only thing I would personally like to see change, would be that our school would be more open to allowing their students to have an open campus."
