i gave extracurricular a five star because it is the best thing that happened to this school. First I say this because students are committed to what they do, and by that it's keeping a lot of kids off the streets and keeping them busy! My favorite activity was cheerleading, I love to cheerlead even though cheerleaders don't get the respect they should for the the most school spirit, committing their time and energy into learning exotic stunts to get the crowd rallied up. Most important cheering the football team on when they have the biggest crowd and even when they don't have a crowd at all. We cheer and practice rain, snow, and on the hottest days. I believe extracurriculars is a big deal in Academy Park High School.

Academy Park forms young studetns into leaders, with the help of teachers who points out your right and wrongs, different clubs or activities to join, lost of school spirit, and plenty of diversity! With the help of their best club, Rising Scholars, this school is shaping students for college.
I liked how each I had over my school year made the person I am, without them giving a head start in life as an adult everything would be so hard, But thanks to Academy Park I’ll be attending Harcum College for Expands Functions Dental Assisting and completeing my Dental Assistant program at DCTS. It’s an overall delightful school to attend. I loved band class, rising scholars and even the talent shows that we had.
