Somethings I enjoyed at Acero Schools Chicago was the connection the teachers maid with their students. The teachers were not just standing in front of students and giving a lesson, they were interacting with there students.

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.
I went to the Uno Soccer Academy High School for all 4 years before they changed their name to Acero. The High School opened in 2013 and I was the first graduating class. The school was a joke. Every year we had a new principal. Teachers would quit all the time and they couldn't really find teachers to teach that class so for months we would have subs. The students were not disciplined at all. The school loves to protect the bullies.
