Very helpful staff! The teachers, staff and counselors care a lot about the students well-being. College readiness and academical success is widely encouraged. Counselors and teachers work very hard to inform the students of academical opportunities. The environment is very safe. The school community is very understanding and helpful.

Honestly it’s an average school unfortunately doesn’t provide much support for average students only for students above excellence. Fails in providing mental health support by the guidance counselors, as well as motivating others to do better. Since it is a uniform school days when there is a dress down (no uniform) they charge from 5-10 dollars so financially they’re constantly asking for money. I think the leading administrators should improve their connection with the students not what’s best in just making the school look good .
The Academy of Finance & Enterprise is a very small school that is expanding more throughout the years. What I like about this school is it provides business classes that help to prepare you for the future and gain knowledge of different aspects in the business world. Since there isn’t much space to provide extracurricular activities, it is hard to get into the clubs and sports that are provided. Overall, this school has helped me gain all the credits I need to graduate, pass all my exams, and have people to trust and talk to if anything ever occurs.
