I enjoy=y being able to have my four years in Aspira. The teachers there and especially the counselors like to make sure that every student there are on track to graduate. With less that twenty five people in the class it is really easy to get the one on one help needed with the teachers. They also offer partnerships with the City Colleges of Chicago to get qualified Juniors and Seniors college credit at no cost to the student.

I like how friendly and nice everyone is. The teachers are really helpful and kind if you need help on anything they are there for you. I also like how you don't have to commit to coming to the school everyday, you can do your work online and on your own time.
The teachers at this school are amazing. they are very devoted and friendly and they do help out struggling students, at points they do become kinda strict when they need to. they are just really amazing and they totally know what they are ta;king about, there on there game. Yet they didnt get an excellent and that is because they do make differences with students, sometimes when a kid acts up they act just like the kid and start yelling and he/she back. at points its like they didnt even graduate to become teachers, some of the guy teachers look weirdly at some students body.
