APB was a very small school bu this meant that teachers and students were more involved. I loved the school, I just graduated and I felt that I learned so much, as the teachers and students grew so did I. The classes were fun, my favorites were Anatomy and AP Calculus. This school is very focused on teacher and student learning, all my teachers pushed me to do better and we had great relationships. They offered so much help when applying to college and I was receiving so much help from my councilor. Overall, it was a great school, good academics, there wasn't much diversity and the school being small meant less sports and I wish there was better food. Even though they served pizza once a month which was great.

Coming from a middle school that neglected its students, I am thankful to have attended a high school like Animo Pat Brown. The faculty and staff were really there for me and provided me with support. The courses were demanding and challenging but I believe that is what helped me feel prepared for college. It is not as diverse, the majority of the student body (if not all) is Latino/Hispanic. And it lacks clubs and extracurriculars. However, I think they are trying to improve on those two factors, and overall my experience there was great.
This school really helped me throughout the entire process of college applications. I feel this school is a second shot in life for those students who want to gain knowledge and get into the right path again to be successful people, especially since it's created in an area of violence. I would strongly suggest relatives to send their children to this school to have a chance in going to college and living the American Dream.
