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.
I have been a student at African-Centered College Preparatory Academy - Secondary School since I was in 10th grade. And ever since then I have felt like a more social person and not as quiet as I used to be at other schools
