I really appreciate the effort the teachers and counselor put into supporting the students whether academically, socially, or psychologically. I also enjoy being a part of a very supportive community, where students are celebrating each other for academic achievements and pushing each other to be their best selves. The pre college programs offered to sign up for in the summer is my favorite part about my highschool because I have been able to experience the college life at Columbia, Cornell, and Brown University. These experiences have molded my inquiry and passion that I plan to encounter during my college experience. While the food is not the best, the most important things that matter like support, guidance, opportunities, and quality of learning are provided by my highschool which is why I enjoy being a highschool student of Achievement First University Prep High School.

Overall, my school has done a lot to ensure that the students in the school are doing their best academically, and are prepared in their plight to graduate college. We have very dedicated teachers and college councelors, who all have the same goal: ensure that their students are all execpted to college, and are fully aware of the things that being in college entails. Although they do well in their education portion of being in the school, the disciplinary system in which the school abides by seems to want to force students into an almost robotic nature. The school does a great job at educating its students, not with understanding them.
Achievement first is a very strict charter school that is all about academics for minority students. In this school everything we do revolves around academics in order to decrease this achievement gap between students of color and white students we work extremely hard and take the most rigorous classes provided to fully prepare us for the works of making it to and through college in 4 years. Besides the academics this school is small although we don't go on trips as often, we are a tight community we all support and uplift all the grade levels of the school. Overall, the experience at the school was tough but it was worth it and i know it will only benefit me at the end.
