American Youth Academy Reviews
However, there's little opportunities for students to choose the classes they want and almost no extracurriculars. The school is short-staffed. I, as an IB student, was only able to choose one of my classes and the rest I was forced to take because they were the only IB courses available. The academic quality of those classes are still sub-par.
Socially: Hard to make friends if you are new or not from an Arab country. If you are Palestinian and enter the school from a young age, you'll do ok. It's also a misconception that the school is diverse. Yes, the school has more minorities than the average school. However, the demographic is almost all from the same arab countries, and the school could be a lot more accepting and unified.
