Academia Avance Charter School is a college ready school. My six year experience has been amazing! It helps many students look forward and continue there education to benefit themselves. You get help from teachers,staff, even students. The only disclaimer I'd have to say would be the air conditioner situation. Since we are in a basement it gets ridiculously hot. We have no air conditioner in any class which makes it a lot harder to stay on task and focus. Overall, the staff and teachers are very welcoming and caring.

I learned a lot at this school. Their academic programs have come such a long way sine I've started. The school focuses a lot on college readiness as they provide career planning assistance, SAT prep and other programs to help students get into and stay in a university. I do wish that more resources were available for students but it taught me to take advantage of what little we had. Overall, I had a good experience with the teachers who know eveyone's names due to the small size. they helped me get into my dream school and I appreciate all their effort to get their students where they want to be.
The bathroom never had toilet paper. The kids were horrific, disrespectful animals. The teachers were either cool, bitter, or so done with the kids that they quit. I had three mental breakdowns my freshman and sophomore years. I was bullied throughout the majority of my time there. Some teachers were good, others couldn't care less about you. I had heard the word "college" so much that I not only didn't want to go to college anymore but I wanted to kill myself when someone would bring up college. But it all could have been worse.
