Alliance College-Ready Academy High School #16, now known as Ted K. Tajima High School is a fast paced learning environment, teachers teach the students in a clear and concise format. Almost everything there is something to learn, there's never a day where you just don't do anything. Teachers are mostly available 24/7, you sometimes see teacher stay 3 hours afterschool for tutoring or just to finish up work and they are more than happy to help you continue your education. Every teacher pays attention to every student, nobody is left out, everybody has the same opportunity to learn. This school is a safe learning environment.
Review Alliance College-Ready Academy High School #16
My first year in this high school was very, very great. The things about this school is that even though it is very small, it still tries to give you all the resources you need. All of the teachers try to help in every way. At the end of each academic year, the teachers try you let you out of the school with a grade that you deserve, and that's been done with extra work or exams to raise one's grade up. The school overall still tries to be at its best, and it has been doing that ever since it was built, including the teachers and staff. Almost everybody knows and helps eachother as friends. Bullying isn't really a presence at this school, since everybody is friendly towards eachother. At the same time they do understand the stress and troubles a student can have, and the teachers are always trying to help out.
This school and their staff go out of their way to help you succeed During the college application process, the councilors helped out during every step of the way. If it meant we had to stay at school until 7pm, the councilors were there with us helping with whatever we needed. Additionally, the rest of the staff on campus make you feel as if you were family. Most of them, if not all, try to make themselves reachable whenever you need them. For example, Ms. Salazar, one of our councilers gave each of the seniors her phone number so we could stay in contact outside if school in case we needed help with applications and scholarships.
