ACLC is a school that is heavily focused on independent learning, democracy, and leadership initiative. With its loose structure and "learn-by-doing" model, academics are learner-focused and prepare students for college atmospheres.

Pros:
- Free periods = freedom
- Opportunity to take classes at any Peralta community college
- Leadership role in clubs, school boards, school committees, Leadership (ASB equivalent)
- Access to computers and printers at school
- Unique culture and traditions

Cons:
- Some teachers are very invested in your learning while others are less so
- Technology does not always work (spotty)
- Food, besides parent-made lunches, is mediocre

Alameda Community Learning Center is a small independent charter school. I love my school and the sense of academic ownership it has instilled me with, but I definitely wouldn't say that extracurriculars are our forte. For many years, the only sport we offered was ultimate frisbee. It's still the most prominent (and probably the best funded) sport at our school, but now we also have a middle school volleyball team and a basketball team. Both are just getting off their feet, but they've been gaining participation and funding in recent years. Besides these sports teams, I can't really think of other after school activities. There are a variety of student-led clubs that occasionally meet after school, but none receive funding by the administration.
The school is always hiring newer facilitators, many of whom are not experienced teachers. It is also difficult trying to get in touch with the counselors.
