I love the calm and positive environment that Amandla has. They go above and beyond trying to make sure everyone feels like part of the family. As a student in spite of my surroundings I always felt safe at Amandla. The teachers are all "A 1" top notch and very patient when making sure all of us found away to connect to the information. I absolutely love Amandla Charter School.

Amandla Charter School is poorly funded and advised. Students break out into fights almost everyday. The Prinicpal is barely present for work. Faculty is disorganized.
I've been at Amandla since 5th grade. Amandla is a decent school. They teach us higher grade level things that help us prepare for college. One thing I would change is the seniors having to wear uniform. Like it's our last year of High School. We should also, be able to pick our own classes. Lastly, we should get rid of the kids that have a background.
