I have attended ACPA since freshman year. The school is very small and as a result students are able to form a deeper connection with the staff. Although the school is located in a "tough" neighborhood, i feel safe. I like that our school offers advisory courses that keep us up to date on colleges and social justice issues. I would like our school to offer a broader variety of electives and clubs that will allow us to explore or interests.
