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.
All City Leadership Secondary school is a unique school as it is very small but holds the spirit of a school that holds 1000+ students. Though located in a neighborhood with a dangerous reputation, this school contradicts the stereotypes about Bushwick, Brooklyn as it is known for preparing and sending low-income minorities into top 10 national universities. This is all because of the personal investment of the faculty in the student's lives. Each teacher goes the extra mile for their students and feels obligated to have each student succeed. One thing that I wish would change is the variety of sports. Since this is a relatively small school, I do not see as many sports programs as I would in other schools.
