Its'S a safety environment School what I like about if the teachers I'm more involved into their work working experience with students and happy to carry on our career in the future make sure we're successful. What I like to see change is be more involved with the seniors in their last year with activities like college trips

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.
