What I love so much about this school is that the staff here is so inspirational and this school made me appreciate my culture more than ever. I learn so much here about going into the real world on my own and I also learned about what I love. I have been inspired to continue to do what I love and forever chase my dream. Never will I ever take no for an answer. I've been exposed to different college options and I love that I had a chance to experience different colleges and different majors and now I know what I want to do with my life.

I loved learning about my ancestors and being able to take African Dance and Drum. If I could change anything about my school, it would be to have better communication about what’s new with the school
I love the school personally. The staff and administration need a little improvement when it comes to working with restorative justice but other than that its great.
