All City Leadership Academy provides an amazing academic and social environment for students to excel in. For a school located in Bushwick, many of the students are minority, low-income, and first-generation. Despite this, students get accepted into the world's most prestigious universities. I for one will be attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology next year and my classmates have already been accepted to schools like Stanford, UPenn, and UVA.

What sets us apart from other public schools is the overwhelmingly loving community that the school provides. We don't have to worry about violence, bullying, or petty gossip that most High Schools are accustomed to. From day one we treat each other like a family and grow to push one another to achieve their goals.

With the loving community, supportive staff, and overall academic drive, anyone can succeed here. ACLA is just that small school in Bushwick that helps students strive to make a big difference.

I chose All City Leadership Secondary School (ACLA) for my first choice in middle school because academically: the small classes, excellent teachers, and the drive and passion for a higher commitment to college. Additionally, their motto for Discipline, Integrity, Motivation, and Enthusiasm (DIME) is powerful and influences my decisions. Their attachment with the military is the embodiment of respect, and humbleness. However, with ACLA being a small school, their activities and classes are limiting. The limited access of diversity and clubs and activities is dragging their potential down into becoming one of the top schools in the city. Thus, their pride and commitment to DIME will be their own definition of success.
As a student whose a sophomore and started off in the school in 6th grade, the school does challenge their scholars which is what I appreciate it. I do wish they focused more in our education than in our uniforms. I understand that disciplinary actions have to occur when I student doesn’t wear the proper uniform, but taking them out of class for the whole day isn’t the best way to do it. I do love the connections and bonds that are form between students and teachers. It makes it easier to receive help that we need. Overall, ACLA is a great school where it is a safe environment to gain an education. This year, the current seniors gained over 10 million dollars in scholarships and have been accepted in top tier schools such as Harvard, Stanford, MIT, UPENN, and a lot more. This school builds up their students not only for success, but for life in general. That’s not something that most high school institutions teach their students.
