The teachers are very involved and supportive. So the main problem begins with the administration. They are very selective when it comes down to discipline. They choose favorites over vulnerable students. Not only that , but they lack in sports and clubs. Our school is very small and after school activities are limited. There are also limitations on having a voice at this school.

Uno it is a great school to attend to. I personally attend to MAJ. Hector P. Garcia High School. It prepares you for college and gives a lot of help with students that need it. I've have had amazing experiences with my teachers. I've made several connections with them and the students. People get along and the security is well enforced. I really encourage students to attend here. Sports is something that could improve,but academics are great here.
The students at these schools are more advanced than public schools. The teachers and staff there are amazing and understanding. Ofcourse many people think that they're too strict well I however think they're perfect. They also have a dress code for which many students hate but I prefer to see students wear the same uniform everyday than having to see them with saggy pants and showing too much skin. But either than that I absolutely recommend sending your kids to these schools.
