The teachers, and adminstration are excellent they really care about how education will change the lives of under privileged city kids. The one thing the school lacks is money so they can only do the best with what they have and sometimes things aren't fulfilled the way the students need them to be. The teachers really work hard to fill that gap and for that I appreciate them so much!

Another Course to College may seem to be a small high school from the outside, but inside is filled with a caring staff and administration that are always psuhing students, especilay the seniors to perform at their peak at obtain an acceptance at a top university in their desired major. Even for someone like me, who came internationally from Togo, West Africa only to do my senior year, have gotten accepted to both the University of Utah and UMass Amherst for Computer Science and Game Development. I will be attending UMass Amherst in the fall.
Since the school was very small, it allowed students to build a closer relationship with teachers, counselors, and administrators. We also received a lot of help from programs such as Uaspire, PIC, etc.
